{ Happy Easter }

I hope everyone is enjoying their Easter weekend. We are enjoying this beautiful, warm weather that is here to stay, I hope.
I wanted to share these little bags I made for Alex's friends using my new Cricut Expression. Plantin SchoolBook cartridge came with the Cricut and I love it. They came together so quickly. My friend Danni made cute treat bags with little tags that I loved and I told her I was going to make some.
The bags, grass and "eggs" are cut with the cricut. The bunny stamp is from Michaels dollar bin.  I am still playing with sizes and "testing" things out on scrap paper. I am taking notes so I can remember next time. The sentiment is from Easter Bunny (CL212) Impression Obsession stamp set that I curved to fit along the edge of the egg.
We made little bunny puppets and filled the bags with little goodies. I hope they like it.

I made a little basket for me, too. This basket can be used for so many different occasions, and I will make it again. I used Easter Basket template from The Cutting Café.  The template comes with two different sizes.

I used the one that holds 4 eggs. Love it. After I printed the template, I cut it out. The basket is covered with crepe paper that I sprayed with Glimmer Mist. I made the flower out of the same crepe paper and painted the edges with Shimmerz paint. The leaves are cut out of Core'dinations cardstock and embossed.
Before I cut out the handle I added about 1/2" inch to the width so I can punch a decorative border and still have a nice size handle.

One last photo of Alex from the Easter egg hunt on Friday. He had so much fun playing outside and collecting eggs with his friends.
