Easter Bunny Hop - Saturday

bunny blog hop join in with_thumb[2]

Happy Saturday everyone, doing anything special today?

Thank you for stopping by and seeing what we have to show you.

But firstly our sponsor today is…….. 

They have given a super prize, but you must visit the Inspiration blog to find out more.

Bunny, Easter, choccy eggs …………ooooh I do find it hard this time of year.
Being allergic to chocolate is not much fun,
but I can now buy chocolate for others, but I do find Easter eggs such a waste.
They are nothing but, air in a box!

So I made these this year…………….

Little bunny bags.

I filled them with little eggs and a small chocolate gold bunny.

I must confess they were not my idea, a freebie kit came on a magazine,
But it had horrid feeling felt and was rather small.
So I made my own template and started playing.

Pink for Mollie, Red for Sam and Turquoise for Sydney.
I hope they like them! 

I know it is a bit late for this Easter, but I am sure bunny bags could be used in the summer too,
or even for party bags.

My candy today is a collection of swiss dot ribbons, felt, matching large heart buttons………
……well everything you need to make these bags, including my template!

Add your name to the list and random org will pick a winner on Sunday 27th.
No comment required………..unless you feel the urge!
Have a great day

from the warehouse.

I was not expecting this.
It is awesome Syd, I do hope grandma likes it.
