diy: Easter party favor bags



I can't let a holiday go by without making some sort of party favor bag.
{I'm still loving the valentine ones :)}



So using these valentine bags as inspiration, I grabbed a bunch of fabric scraps and no-sew Heat n' Bond and made bunny versions.


To make the bunnies, I traced a cookie cutter onto the paper side of the Heat n' Bond and then carefully cut them out.  If you don't have a bunny cookie cutter, a quick google search will come up with a bunny outline to use.


Then just follow the instructions on the package and iron the bunnies onto small muslin bags.  {Basically, all you need to do is iron it, paper side up, to the back of the fabric you want to applique.  Then cut out a shape, peel the backing, and iron it onto the bag.}


Doing everything assembly line style always works best for me...




I filled my bags with little trinkets and treats...


These could totally be the ribbons for the state fair of crafting... ;)


Then I {just had to} doll them up a bit more with poms and ribbons and stamped "hoppy Easter" {I crack myself up} tags.  


Happy Easter, friends!

Easter bento snacks

This post sponsored by Robinson's Fruit Shoot.  All opinions are my own.  As always, thanks for reading!! xoxo



Last week, I shared a few of the bento school lunches I've been packing lately.  




Sometimes my youngest that stays home for lunch with me was feels a little left out, so I've been making afternoon snacks bento style...and an Easter theme makes it even more fun!

All I did was use an empty egg carton and fill it with plastic egg sized snacks...pretzels, peanut butter roll ups, goldfish, Easter marshmallows, golden raisins, and clementines...accompanied by a colorful Fruit Shoot to drink!

And if you're still looking for lunchbox inspiration, be sure to visit Fruitshoot for more creative ideas!
