Hope you are enjoying the Easter break....I certainly am and the NZ weather is behaving and we have a lovely sunny day for Good Friday.
I've been madly busy of late with home and work and Easter crept up on me so I had to come up with something quick in the way of a little gift for our visitors over the Easter weekend. While surfing a few blogs a week or two back I came across one that used paper cupcake wrappers to make a wee gift basket (apologises I cant recall who this was) but I've put my own spin on this idea and came up with the wee basket below.
So go to your pantry and see what you might have on hand by way of cupcake wrappers....I cheated a little and bought some pre-shredded papper for my "nest" but scrap paper would shred up nicely for this job.
To create the handle I used one of my all time favourite Fiskars punches "Apron Lace". Got a scrap piece of white cardstock and punched an edge both sides and glued a strip of ribbon to the centre to give it a bit of a colour punch.
Last job was to staple handle to cupcake wrapper, fill with shredded paper and place
mini eggs inside. Done in all of 10 minutes..... You could customise these by punching a tag and writing on the name of the person you will be giving it too.
So if you thought you had run out of time but have some cupcake wrappers on hand you might just be able to save the day and whip some of these up for your little visitors.
Wishing everyone a very happy Easter weekend...
