Hello there! I wanted to share this sweet Hostess gift that I made last month using For Peeps' Sake and the Fry Box Die. I started with a piece of Pear Pizzazz Cardstock that I ran through the Big Shot using the Fry Box Die. I assembled it and added a handle using the Candy Dot Bases and Subtles Candy Dots.

I colored the egg images with So Saffron, Wisteria Wonder, Pumpkin Pie, Coastal Cabana & Calypso Coral Markers. I cut them out~keeping them one piece and adhered to the basket using SNAIL. I then added a little grass border over the top using the Fringe Scissors. I tied a bow around the basket using Pear Pizzazz Cotton Ribbon. The tag was stamped with Calypso Coral ink onto Whisper White Cardstock and punched out with the Label Bracket Punch. I cut off the sides using a paper trimmer, punched a hole using the 1/8" Circle Handheld Punch, and attached to the ribbon using Crushed Curry Baker's Twine.

I stuffed the Easter basket with some grass and these 3 little critters. I measured the fun~size candy bars and wrapped them with cardstock. I scored the cardstock so it formed neatly around the candy bars.

For the bunny, I used Whisper White Cardstock & Pink Pirouette ink for his cheeks. The ears were made with the Word Window Punch and the insides were Calypso Coral scraps from the Curvy Keepsake Die. His nose was made with the Spiral Border Punch, cutting the square shape into a triangle. I added googlie eyes...

...and a tail of course, using the Calypso Coral Pompom Trim.

For the chick I used Daffodil Delight Cardstock and Pumpkin Pie for his beak. I used one of the petals off of the Blossom Punch for his hair and the heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack for his wings. I gave him some Pink Pirouette cheeks with a Q~tip and googlie eyes.

For the lamb I used Whsiper White Cardstock that I ran through the Big Shot using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. I used the Small Oval in Basic Black Cardstock for his face. I again made a nose using the Spiral Border Punch in Pink Pirouette Cardstock. I used the 7/8" Scallop Circle for the top of his head and added his ears underneath using the Bitty Butterfly Punch. I finished him off with a pair of googlie eyes.

This was such a fun Hostess gift to make and the Hostess was so 'hoppy' to get it:) Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. This is too creatively cute for words; goodness. I'm glad you explained things so well, I wondered about the inner bunny ears and his nose in particular! TFS! Super cut! :)

  2. So happy you like them:) Thanks so much Donna!
