Good Morning! It's Wednesday and that means a brand new challenge over at Cooking With Cricut. This week we want to see your Easter creations!
I can't believe it's already Easter! Normally, by this point I would have my egg hunt all ready to go, and my Easter baskets all packed up. But this year I'm completely behind. Thanks to this challenge, I have ONE thing finished. Hey, it's a start, right?
Have you ever played with Christmas crackers? My kids discovered them on Mr. Bean (NOTHING makes us laugh as hard as Mr. Bean's antics), and sort of fell in love with the whole idea. I decided to make my own as part of our Easter week celebrations. They were SUPER simple, and Abi and Luke are already asking when they get to crack them open.
Here's what inside:
I stuffed it all into empty toilet paper tubes and then wrapped the tubes with some old paper I found in my stash. It's thin, so it was easier to manipulate, but I think I'd use gift wrap next time.
Here's a back view - love that little bunny tail:
I used Doodlecharms for the bunny heads, and PKS Critter Faces for the cute little faces. The feet are just circles I cut out using circle punches, and the tails are pom poms I swiped from the kids' craft stash.
APPARENTLY, you can buy the snaps to put inside the crackers - to make the "POP" - but I coudn't find them. Disappointing, but Abi and Luke assure me they can make the sound themselves and it'll work just as well. :) I have made it my mission to track down the actual snaps before Christmas though, so if anyone can point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it!
