Hold on to your Easter Basket!!!

If you are here for the NO HOUSEWORK BLOG HOP, GO HERE:
If you are here for Cherry Lynn fun and OODLES OF EASTER IDEAS, keep on reading!!
I have got such a treat for you today!
Do you realize Easter is in 16 more days?
That is a lot of days left to get some cute goodies made for friends and family.
I have some great ideas for Easter Home Decor, gifts, baskets, place settings if you use your creative imagination.
First, you could use this for a cute decoration on the Easter table. Put a plastic one filled with goodies at each place setting. That would be so cute!
To make this, I took our French Pastry Doily , got it wet, and molded it around a narrow glass vase. To speed up the molding process, I dried it CAREFULLY, with my embossing dryer. I sealed it with hairspray to hold the shape.

The flowers are made from the PRETTY PETAL die.
My next project is this little bag.
It measures 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches.
How do you like that bicycle?
I made the bag base from the largest die of the FRENCH FLAIR SQUARES.
I then did a strip of paper down the middle to create the small bag.
Again, I have used the PRETTY PETAL die for the flowers.
The PRETTY PETAL is one of my favorites, can you tell?
Next up, I have another TINY project.
This is made from one of MAYA ROADS 4 inch bottle caps.
I used the EASTER PARADE die set.
There is so much detail in this die set that the color and paper combinations for this kit are endless.
I thinks the caps are about 1/2 inch in depth, so I used dimensional tape to pop these up to the surface of the cap.
I used the SCALLOPED CIRCLE Large Nesting dies, the FRENCH PASTRY DOILY and the LARGE CIRCLE STITCH plate for the background.
My last project today is this wonderful basket.
I made my own base, in the same fashion as the bicycle bag in today’s post.
I used the largest circle from the Scalloped Circle Large Stackers and the Large Circle Pierce plate for the base.
The bunny is called BUNNY IN BASKET.
To add a special touch to the eggs, I used very small rub-ons.
I added some candy,
colorful tissue paper and decorative flowers to finish this with lots of color.
Why did I make so many things?
I wanted to make sure you knew how many fabulous dies Cheery Lynn has for your Easter Crafts.
Next week maybe we will have to see what my Little Veggies are doing for Easter!
Until then, have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.
This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with your Easter ideas:)

    Love these, as always! Wow, I bet your house is gorgeous at easter. Check out the sliding treat holders I have on my blog; something easyish that the kids could decorate.

    Jeannie, your projects are adorable! The bunny parade bottle cap is just fabulous! I am intrigued by the dies. Do you know if they will work in Revolution? I liked the bicycle die!
    TT is going well. I am still there but started to think how long I need/want to stay 🙂
