....more Easter with Bella

Most holidays you will find me up until the wee hours the evening before putting last minutes touches on projects for the kids…..but not this Easter !!  

I am so excited that I got a head start on these fun gifts for my kids.....Thanks to Bella Blvd. for this fabulous collection :))

Emma and Alex will see these fun boxes when they sit down to Easter breakfast this weekend !!  

I used a box template to create the base and then added bits of patterned paper from Spring Flings & Easter Things.  Once the base was complete, I added precision cut pieces, stickers and chip alphas to embellish.  

I finished them off with crinkle cut paper in the bottom before filling each box with chocolate treats too !!

I am that girl who scoops up all the super savings in the days after a holiday.  I love collecting pieces that I can turn into something else and tucking them away until the following year.  That is exactly what I did with these gift card tins. 

My children are at ages where they LOVE to get gift cards so these are perfect for a little something special from Mommy and Daddy on Easter morning……

 I liked the silver on the bottom but really needed to re-do the lid !!  I wrapped a pattern strip around the edge and added another pattern on top.  

I sanded all the edges first and then 'scrapbooked' the top using stickers, ribbon, flags, twine and a crochet flower too !!

I like to add a bit of color to the dinner table on holidays but didn't want to create place cards for a small group so I decided to whip up these fun little napkin rings instead !!  

I used a strip of patterned paper, border punched the edge and added preicion cut shapes and stickers to the top to pretty them up....

  A very quick, easy and super cute way to use up your leftover bits from other projects !!

Hope this gives you a few more ideas to whip up before the weekend :))

Talk soon.
