A SPRING "BUNNY" SWAP





Over at one of my groups, Etsy Cottage Style, we decided to do a "bunny swap" for spring. Your swap had to include 3 things,
1- a bunny
2-an egg
3-a chick.
Your partner was chosen at random among the girls who wanted to participate. I got a great girl named Kat (who I hope isnt seeing this post). I had alot of fun making these things for her. For the bunny part, I made a vintage style easter card with a retired stamp from Stampin Up. I also used this bunny on the yellow gift box which is actually a Yankee Candle Tart holder. After I made it, I put in some easter grass and 6 tarts in spring scents. The egg part is a beautiful little nest with tiny robins eggs in it that I got while on a recent shopping trip with my family. It was so cute, I had to have one for myself. And for the chick part, I mod podged some scrapbook paper and a vintage image of a boy with baby chicks to a purchased tin bucket. I added some Martha Stewart seam binding ribbon and some prima hydrangeas, and a little sprig of blossoms from my flower collection. And of course I added a little bag of chocolate eggs! Whats a holiday without some chocolate?? I hope she likes her gift.It is going to the post office now and I'll show you what I receive from her when it arrives~
Thanks for stopping by...
