This week Debbie, the lovely boss, has asked the DT to use one of the Bunny images from 
I opted to use Bunny 2 to embellish my little baskets.

These are so easy to make, just one sheet of paper for each, with a little strip cut off for the handle, a few simple folds & hey presto!

I printed my papers onto both sides of some double-sided matt photopaper.
The digi papers I have used are from the Green Easter set by Sammy Murphy,available from Scrapbookingmad
I've had this download for absolutely ages but they are still available.
I did a little bit of colouring on the bunnies with my Promarkers.
Next, I cut out the images with various nesties!

The baskets are different sizes & all sit neatly stacked inside each other.
The largest is made from an A4 sheet & the smallest an A5 sheet.

I filled them with a variety of sweets.
My idea was to fill them with mini chocolate eggs, chocolate bunnies & Easter chicks but this is what happens when you ask your other half to do your shopping  for you!

Yep, it's as described but as he's a fan of the jelly sweet variety this is what he brought home! Lol!
Still I don't think the recipients will complain!
The only other embellishments I added are some paper flowers, papermania I think, with a brad for the centre of each then attached with some pinflair glue gel.
The little peeper chicks were left over from some Easter Bonnet creations I did earlier!
Thank you for stopping by!
(You may have seen a sneak preview of this post, Mr Blogger was being naughty & not listening to the fact that I wanted to schedule it!)
