I am trying to concentrate on the things I would be thinking about under normal conditions. For me that would be Marie's upcoming birthday and Easter. I am not even sure that the 5 of us will spend Easter together, but I still want to have treats for my family. Fortunately, I picked up candy weeks ago.
There is certainly nothing wrong with simply placing treats in Easter baskets, but I usually embellish those treats in some way. I wanted to dress up small packages of Brach's Tiny Jelly Bird Eggs so I decided to create a wrapper for them. Since we all love to hold the new baby in our family I decided to add a paper bunny holding a mini Lindt chocolate bunny to the front of the holders.
Here's a view of the side of the holder.
Depending upon what you use for the candy inside of the holder you may have to change the measurements, but here's what I did.
Cut a piece of patterned tag so that it measures 3.5" x 12". Score at 4", 5", 9", and 10". Fold along all score lines. I used border punch to decorate the shortest fold. Then I stapled a bag of candy inside the holder and stapled the holder so it was closed. I used my Cricut to cut some bunnies for the front of the packages. I put a mini Lindt chocolate bunny in the paper bunny's arms.
This was a quick and easy project once I figured out the measurements that I needed.
Take care. Focus on the blue skies and sunshine we are seeing today.
