{Easter} Cute Bunnies Banner

11 April 2014


A while ago, as I was browsing the Pottery Barn website for some Easter inspiration, I came across this super sweet Bunny Bunting. I loved the idea and decided it would make a perfect Easter DIY project.
I am not the only one to have spotted this item apparently as I have seen a few Knock-off versions on blogs already!



I picked this design from the Silhouette store and used the Spring Fling Paper Pack from Oriental trading again (See previous post).

After cutting the bunny silhouettes, I simply hot glued them on some ric-rac ribbon.
I have seen people using cotton balls for the tails but I decided a soft and fluffy pompom would look better. I did not like the look of synthetic craft pompoms so I ended up making my own yarn pompoms and hot glued them onto the bunnies. And I got the exact look I was after :)

{Easter Craft} Bunny Treat Boxes DIY

8 April 2014


Those adorable Bunny Treat Boxes would make the perfect favors for Easter !
I fell in love with them and could not stop making more (OK I made 16 when I only really needed 5!!!) But I just had to try all the different color combinations :)


I created the design with my Silhouette software, so if you have a silhouette, send me a email and I will share the file ! With a cutting machine these boxes only take a minute to make.
However if you don't have a Silhouette, don't worry, I have created a template for you !



What you need:
Bunny box template
Assorted scrapbook paper
Glue
Ribbon
Candy (Packets of mini Easter M&Ms were the perfect fit)

For this project, I used the Spring Fling Paper Pack that the lovely people at Oriental Trading sent me a few weeks ago.
The colors were perfect for this project, bright and happy. And since it was a pack, the colors were coordinated and it was therefore super easy to match them.
The paper weight was just what I needed for the boxes. Easy to fold but still thick enough to hold the shape well.


How to:


Use the Bunny Box template to trace the box shape onto the scrapbook paper.
Cut the box, score and fold.
Glue the wings and let dry for a few minutes.
When dry, hold the two sides together and punch a hole in the "neck" of the bunny.
Fill with candy and tie a ribbon to close.

If, like me, you are using single sided paper, you may want to add an inlay of a contrasting color. This will give your bunny a pop of color and cute mis-matched ears.

Linky Parties



{Easter} Napkins

7 April 2014



I found these adorable embroidered bunny napkins at WorldMarket and could not resist :)
My theme this year is Cute Bunnies so they fit in perfectly !!


As napkin rings I simply tied some raffia around and added a monogram tag. The letters for the tags are embossed on kraft paper (embossing tutorial here). I wanted to keep the tags simple to keep the embroidery as the main focal point.


Now they also sell other cute bunny items in this range and I think I am going to have to get the sweet egg cups too !! (they're on sale so I should, right ?)

{Pin of the Week} Tic Tac Toe game idea from Anders Ruff

6 April 2014

This week I fell in love with this sweet game of "Dig" Tac Toe Anders-Ruff styled for a Dinosaur Dig Birthday Party !!
It's such a clever idea to use colored dinosaur instead of the usual Os and Xs.
The rest of the party is amazing of course and the printables are spot on for a little boy's party. I love it.




{Frozen Movie Night} Snowman Bracelet Favors

3 April 2014



Since I recently had the opportunity to try out a few products for Oriental Trading, I decided to order those adorable Snowman Bracelets for the girls.


They would make the most adorable favors for a Disney Frozen party.
The bracelets come as kits with clear instructions on how to make them. Both my 7 year old and my 4 year old we able to follow the pattern easily.
The kits are well thought of, with a few extra parts and several threads.

Since Chloe has such a tiny wrist, there were some beads leftover after making her bracelet, just enough for Noemie to turn her bracelet into a necklace, so that worked out perfectly.

The design is really sweet and the colors made it a perfect match to our Frozen party.
