For Some Bunny Special and All My Favorite Peeps

Taking a break from posting wedding stuff to celebrate Easter! These Easter projects were the first things I created as soon as the wedding was over...sure missed making cutesy stuff!
This cutie patootie peeking bunny is part of a covered slider card which I used to hold a gift card for my niece.
Pulling on the tab on the top reveals our Easter greeting and makes bunny rise up in the basket with a little surprise. Original instructions and template for the covered slider card are from Chia Wald. Basket and egg cuts are from Cricut's Doodlecharms cartridge, and cute lop-eared fuzzy bunny are from my new favorite paper piecing site, My Scrapchick.
For my Easter treats, I came up with these gable boxes to hold cookies and lemon pizelles.
Cute bunny and chickie faces on the boxes are from the Spring Faces mini set, also from the My Scrapchick. Love that these were so quick and easy and yet so adorable! The gable boxes are 6.5" tall (including the handle) by 4.5" wide, roomy enough to hold about 10 mini pizzelles or a dozen small cookies. The cutfile for these were created in Cricut Design Studio using and welding shapes from the George cartridge.
Then at the last minute, I spied Lexi's irresistable "Peep S'Mores kits" pinned all over Pinterest...just HAD to give these a try! These were great as a last minute Easter treat idea...so much fun and super duper quick and easy to put together.
Simply used cellophane bags to put the Bunny Peeps, chocolate and graham crackers in and sealed them with my old Seal-A-Meal machine. Then I created a little topper for the bags decorated with little Bunny Peeps graphics I found on the internet, adding "To One of My Favorite Peeps".  On the backside, I added the instructions for making your own "Peep S'Mores". Made forty of these in just a couple hours, and all ready for passing out to dh's and my friends at work.
LOL, no more children at home, but here I am still having fun with Easter. Guess I'll never outgrow it! Hope you all have a fun and special Easter too!

Thank you so much for sharing your creations. I'm going to make the Peep S'mores next Easter. I like how you put only part of the faces on the treat boxes...so cute. It is wonderful that creative people like you write blog posts so we can all learn and be inspired.
