An Easter Craft Project?

Those who read this blog often know that recently we took a few weeks away from the blog while we concentrated on getting the scrapbook store open once again. However, we were able to do a few craft projects during this time.

I work on our store full  time, but Susy works is a manager at a shipping company.  Every holiday we try to come up with a little something to give her team.  This is what we made for this Easter.

We found these little pots at a local craft store for only $0.40.  We painted acrylic paint.  We filled them with Easter grass and a few chocolate Easter eggs each.   The pinwheels were very easy to make.  We used a pinwheel punch, a brad, and a toothpick.

The finial component is the cake pops.  We had never made cake-pops before, but Susy is a great cook so we figured how hard could it be.  :P  We were to learn it isn't completely easy.  If you want to know  how we made our ugly but yummy cake-pops let me know and I'll make a separate post.

It took us two nights to make all 25 of these little Easter presents.   They were a big hit.  Everyone ask Susy (who works very long hours) where she found the time.  :)  I know it's a long time until next Easter, but these were so cute I wanted to make the post on them anyway.

Have a great day and Happy Scrapbooking
