Easter Basket Ideas

I thought I would share some really fun last minute Easter ideas.
I am filling all of our little Easter baskets with these goodies...

I am packaging cookies in little CD envelopes...

with this delicious recipe.
chocolate pudding cookies

And why not use up scrap paper and make these darling Easter treat boxes from Nifty Thrifty Things?

The kids made these sweet treats...

To make them just whip up a batch of Rice Krispy Treats and shape into little nests.
Set on wax paper and before they cool completely add a Peep and some jelly beans.
So fun!

And lastly, I made my two little ones and a special friend these sweet bunnies.
I was inspired by Emily at Jones Design Company to add a little flower to the girls' bunnies.
The pattern is really easy and fairly quick to make.




I used this pattern.

Wishing you a blessed and peace filled Easter celebrating the resurrection!

Julia,

I LOVE the CD packaging idea. One of my daughters will be having her end-of-the year piano recital for her students soon, and she prepares gifts for each student. Would you mind if she *borrowed* your idea? Also, my girls make flowers sort of like the one on your bunny to wear on their sweaters and dresses. How CUTE:) You are very talented and have a real gift for putting colors and textures together in an appealing way.

God bless you and yours as you celebrate the resurrection!!

Blessings,

Sherry
