Easter 2010

So believe it or not I was actually pretty crafty for Easter... even though I'm just now posting it, about a month later. I've been kinda busy going to Disneyland and Las Vegas that I haven't had time to blog lately. But I will start again. I do want to share my Easter crafts I made though with you all!

This would be the really cute pin wheel treats that I made everyone. I got a 12x12 sheets of scrapbook paper, cut it into 6x6 squares and than scored an "X" going through the center. I cut the "X" leaving an inch uncut from the center, doing this to each corner. I punched a hole in the middle, and each left corner of the cuts. (hope that totally made sense).... I thread each hole through a brad and than through the middle hole. Punch a hole in the top of the pixie stick, attached the pin wheel and closed my ends of the brad. Wa-laa. Put it in the cute Easter basket with some grass and a candy necklace, Totally Cute!

I also made this Easter Egg basket for my little 2 year old Bailey. I took a balloon and blew it up to a good size. You than soak some colored string in some 1/2 water 1/2 elmers glue solution. I use that changing colored string. Start wrapping. You might want to brush on some extra glue to stiffen it more if you'd like and sprinkled some glitter on before the glue dried. Once it does dry, pop the balloon and cut a circle in the front. I use a plate for a stencil. Fill the egg with grass and toys, and go hide it in the yard, let them know the Easter Bunny brought it, even though you won't get any credit for making it, hehe =(
