Easter Gift

My older kids have been a little obsessed with these EOS lip balms. They seem to be all the rage with the kids today in our neck of the woods. I had never heard of them until a few months ago. The first time I saw them, I thought they looked just like little colorful Easter eggs.

EOS-chapstick

So, of course…I had to turn these cute EOS Lip Balm’s into some fun Easter gifts. Wouldn’t it be so fun to give or get one of these in an Easter Basket or from one of your favorite people?  You can get them from Costco or Amazon through this link if you are interested…

Easter-ideas

This is another one of these quick and easy Easter gift ideas! Seriously! All I did was take some of my white vinyl scraps and used a hole punch to punch out some round circles of vinyl. Be sure to punch the vinyl out while it still has the vinyl backing paper on it…otherwise you could end up with a pile of stuck together polka dots.

Easter-basket-ideas

Then print out some of printable Easter gift tags and attach them to the lip balm after you package them up all pretty. I simply put them in a plastic gift bag with some artificial Easter grass.

easter-gift-tags

Then give them to your friends and/or your teachers. I have two different printable tags for you to download. I didn’t take a picture of the teacher tag which says’ “You are an “EGG”cellent teacher!” because I didn’t think about making a teacher version until after I took the pictures. The tag is exactly the same as the one pictured except for the wording.

Easter Gift–Bunny Kisses

I love using the printable kiss stickers for the different holidays but hadn’t made any for Easter yet. I love that they make a really inexpensive but totally unique Easter Gift.

easter-printables
So I made some. I love that you can use these stickers to make a seemingly ordinary gift, a little extraordinary. I also love that you can use them on a lot of other things too.

easter-gift-tags
I decided to not use the old stand by bottle for the kisses like I have done with the other holiday Hershey kiss stickers.

I am loving bunny silhouette’s (if you haven’t noticed) and thought it would be fun to make some little bags to hold the Hershey’s kisses and give away as a little Easter gift.

easter-bunny

I simply stenciled a bunny silhouette onto the little linen bags (which I picked up from Michaels). Then I glued a little white pom pom on the bunny for a little cotton tail with some hot glue.  If you can’t find the bags in your local craft store you can pick some up from Amazon here:

Cotton Drawstring Muslin Bags, 3″ X 5″ – Pack of 25

easter-gift-bag

I added these cute little Easter Bunny Kisses tags to each one.    And just used the little string ties to tie the tag onto each bag.

Easter Candy Bark

Easter is right around the corner and I have a quick and easy Easter treat that you can make in minutes and makes a great addition to your festive Easter food.  Chocolate Bark is so easy to make and tastes so good.  I have shared a few other Chocolate Bark candy ideas over the years.  If you have been following along for a while you might remember some of them: Peppermint Bark, Candy Corn Bark, and Oreo Bark.

Easter-food

The thing I love about Bark Candy is that is looks a lot fancier than it really is to make.  And they make a great and easy gift that most people might enjoy receiving.  I simply melted some white chocolate.  I love to use Ghiradelli white chocolate.  Just melt it in a microwaveable bowl on 20 second intervals so you do not burn it, and stir between each cycle.

Easter-recipes

Then simply pour your melted chocolate onto a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan covered with wax or parchment paper.   Sprinkle your Easter candy over the melted chocolate and let it cool and harden.  Break into small pieces and then package up and give it away!

Easter-gifts

Or serve it as part of your Easter Dessert table.  Either way…you will love how festive, fun and easy this Easter food is to make.  Have you ever made a bark candy?

Easter Cookie Envelope

Yesterday I shared with you this Easter Cookie Gift Bag that I made as part of the CRE8TIME Creativity Movement.  We are encouraged to be creative for an hour a day for 8 days in a row.  If you missed that you can read more about that in yesterday’s post: CRE8TIME Easter Gift Idea.  Today I sharing how I made it and offering you some free Easter printables.

Easter-printables

 
Today I am sharing with you how to make some of these for yourself so that you can use them to be creative and to share your creativity with others.  They are really simple to make.  I love to give gifts that come in pretty packages.

Easter-gifts

Sometimes the easiest way to get exactly what you want is to make it.  I found all the supplies I needed to make this project at Michael’s, who I partnered with in this project.

DIY-Easter-gift

 

I took a  photo of the paper I used just in case some of you are interested in the names and Brands.  I also purchased some Vellum so that you could see the cookie inside of the cookie envelope.  I came up with a pattern for the cookie bag and then cut out the paper using two different coordinating patterns for the front and back of the envelope.

I glued the cookie envelope together with a glue stick and put the flaps on the inside of the envelope.  And I glued the square of Vellum on the inside of the front of the envelope.

DIY-Easter-Gift 1

I have provided the pattern for your use if you would like.  Simply click on the image of the pattern and you will be taken to the free pdf download to print.  It also comes with the pattern for you to make this Easter Bunny head that I attached to the top of the bag with a mini clothes pin.  The bunny nose is a black brad that you can find in the scrapbook supply aisle.

DIY-Easter-Gift 3

Then I cut out a simple banner and added some black letter stickers to spell out the words Hoppy (or Happy) Easter.  I attached them to a string and then attached that to the insides of the envelope through a tiny hole.

Easter gift

For the “hoppy” I simply cut out a 1.5 inch circle and then a 2 inch scalloped circle with some paper punches, which I then attached to the envelope.

Easter gift 2

You can fold the top of the envelope over the top or tuck it in like I did.

Easter-printables

Then simply slip in your favorite cookie.  I made my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and added in some crushed Cadbury Mini Eggs…I know!

DIY-Easter-Gift 7

My family raved about how great the cookies were.  And I would have to say that I am sure they were amazing…but unfortunately I am unable to eat them any more due to my food allergies (womp womp).

Easter-recipes 
Give them away to your favorite people if you are able to stop yourself from eating all the cookies.  At any rate…get your creativity on and join the CRE8TIME Movement.
