Are you in a pinch to create Easter party favors for school or Sunday brunch? Worry no more, I scanned some favorite sites and hooked you up. Every project is easy, affordable and pretty.
These cute little bunny envelopes look like a snap to make. Click here for directions.
After seeing this, I was inspired to make these little paper baskets below. This was very easy and supplies were only about $4. They're simply made from white paper lunch bags that I bought at Target. A pack of 50 costs about $2. Lay them flat and cut out a reverse "T" shape using scalloped scissors. Then cut off the extra tab and tape the end into a handle. Easy. Specific directions are here.
I haven't filled them with goodies yet, but here is one from a batch I'm making. I had some leftover stickers from another project, so I popped one on the side of the basket. A monogram sticker would be cool too. How adorable would this be with three little pastel crayons and a tiny notepad peeking out of the top? I'm a big believer that kids don't always need tons of candy in an Easter basket. Trinkets can be far more interesting!
These would make an adorable Easter party favor for classmates or even a teacher. They really don't have to be just for kids. I may give a few to my own peeps. How about
bringing one into to your boss? Load it up with
a few Godiva chocolates and a Starbucks giftcard. I bet you'll get an extra
I had plenty of leftover paper strips after making my lunch bag baskets and saw this so I made small accordion tags as labels with the scraps.
How about some super cute Easter cups? Directions here.
Since this next one involves working with existing bags, ribbon and construction paper, I qualify it as both as easy and affordable. And look how pretty. Maybe my husband is secretly in his office pretending to work while he makes me one. Ha! Directions are right here.
Okay, this next one is probably not a kid-friendly project but I still love the way these votives look. So all of the young marrieds with no offspring, go for it. The how-to is right here.
And while we're on the topic of being incredibly creative with eggs, check this out. This one's for any green thumbs. It's an egg planter. Love the colorful combination of purple flowers and blue shredded paper. Here are the directions.
Here's a very green idea that could be a creative hostess gift. Fill half a carton with goodies and attach a note inside. Wrap it in a bow and it's ready to impress.
And for the bakers, here's a fun bunny cake. Directions here.
Whether you're planning a quiet Sunday brunch, hosting an Easter egg hunt or dressing up like the Easter bunny for 47 screaming toddlers, hope this post inspired some creative ideas. Happy planning!
