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.

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.

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.

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:

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.

CRE8TIME Movement–Easter Craft

Back in August I had the opportunity to head out to Dallas, TX and spent some time with some of the amazing people that work with Michaels.  They are so creative and so much fun and we had a good time creating together.  While there we were able to participate in the Michaels Leadership Conference and Holiday Show.  We also met the CEO of the Craft & Hobby Association, Andrej Suskavcevic, who shared with us an amazing campaign called CRE8TIME.

CRE8TIME

CRE8TIME is a movement, a movement supported by a group of people who want to make a positive social change. As our lives become increasingly crowded with “responsibilities,” we tend to ignore ourselves and find it difficult to justify creative pursuits; they seem “selfish” and are often the first things we discard.  It’s time to reclaim our creativity!  CRE8TIME is a movement, a movement supported by a group of people who want to make a positive social change.  It is designed to help people recover eight hours a month and devote it to their particular craft, and to create a place for them to share their experiences – the joys, lessons, and results – with the creative community at large.  Learn more about CRE8TIME in this video.

Now, I tend to spend a lot of my time creating, so finding myself creating for an hour a day is not unusual.  It helps that I am a creative blogger by trade.  But what about you? Do you find time to create in your lives?  I know that most of you LOVE to create, which is why you may find yourself here…on my site.  How does being creative make you feel?  For me, creativity is a way to unwind and relax.  A way for me to connect with who I am outside of all of the other roles I find myself in.

As part of the CRE8TIME project and my partnership with Michael’s, I came up with a project that I would like to be able to share with you.  And, if you are interested, hopefully this project will help you to be able to find some time to add some creativity to your life if you are not already doing so.  Tomorrow I will share with you the printable pattern, photo tutorial, and the cookie recipe I used so that you can make some too.
