Easter Treat Place Cards

My mom put me in charge of place cards for Easter dinner, but of course I had to turn it into something bigger, involving some treats!  I pulled out lots of My Creative Time dies, along with some pretty Papertrey Ink pastel papers and made 19 treat holders that will look super cute on our dining room table!

I got jelly beans for the little kids and used the MCT Bubblegum Treat Box Die to make these cute little boxes.  Several of my DT sisters have made these by cutting off one end of the treat box and folding it up to make the bottom.  So easy and cute!  I tied them shut with some thick hemp twine from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.  I used the banner dies from MCT's Fly Away With Me Sentiments stamp/die set as a place to write their names, and then I popped up a bunny cut with the die from MCT's To My Best Peep.

For the bigger kids and adults, I picked up some See's Candies lollipops and wrapped them up using the MCT Stitched Lollipop Holder Die.  I also used MCT's Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies to stamp my cute circular sentiment from MCT's Happy Hunting.  The adorable little bunny in the center is from MCT's Hello Spring.

I hope you all have a fabulous Easter!

Happy Easter!

I made a couple more Easter cards to send out to family this week.  For these, I used the "there's no bunny like you" sentiment from My Creative Time's Color Me Happy and "Happy Egg Hunting!" from MCT's Happy Hunting.

I couldn't resist this little teddy bear dressed up like a bunny from the Cricut Teddy Bear Parade cartridge!  I ran his bunny suit through my Vagabond with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and gave him a cute Peachy Keen face.  The doily background was made with My Creative Time's Stitched Doily Die.

The first card I made was for my nephews, and then I just switched up the colors to make one for my niece.

Thank You Tag

My sweet sister-in-law surprised me with a cooler full of yummy soup the other day, so when I returned the cooler I had to have a fun tag attached to it!  I used the Papertrey Ink Tag Sale #3 Die to make it.

The cute soup bowl, spoon, and steam were made with the PTI Comfort Foods stamps and dies.  I made the fun squiggly line with PTI's Birthday Style Dies.

The "it does a body good" sentiment is from Comfort Food Additions stamp set, and "Thank You" is from PTI's Asian Fusion stamp set.  I added a little PTI spring moss grosgrain ribbon and some thin hemp from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique to finish it off!
