Memory Box Bunnies, Half a Dozen Eggs and Springtime Typewriter Sentiments by Jean Okimoto


Create sweet treats for Easter baskets or brunch with Memory Box bunnies, Simple Chicks and Half a Dozen Eggs.  Glossy embossed greetings from the Springtime Typewriter Sentiments set add the perfect finishing touch.  Hi there, Jean Okimoto here with my last Easter project - and a great excuse to buy a few more packages of Easter candy.  


Cut 8" x 3" strips of Bubblegum, Key Lime, Pool and Squash Dots and Gingham.  Score them at 3-⅞", 4" and 4-⅛".  Fold it on the 4" scoreline.  Place the largest die from the Half a Dozen Eggs set about ⅛" beyond the fold and cut through both layers to create treat wrappers.

Unfold it and refold it on the 3-⅞" and 4-⅛" scorelines.  Punch holes at the top.  

Cut Bunny Face, Sweet Bunny and Gentle Bunny from watercolor paper.  Cut Simple Chicks from bright yellow cardstock.  Attach scraps of pink, orange and black cardstock for the facial features and a colorful tail for the Gentle Bunny.  

Stamp the greetings from the Springtime Typewriter Greetings set on the smoother side of watercolor paper with Turquoise Gem VersaColor, Verdant VersaFine Clair, Summertime VersaFine Clair and Charming Pink VersaFine Clair.  Emboss the words with detail clear powder.

Attach the candy with doublestick tape and tie the wrappers with twine.  I've used a Ghiradelli Square - two Ghiradelli Minis would also be great.


Join us for the Charming Prints class at Impress if you're in the Seattle area on Saturday April 20th.  We're using an assortment of printed, silkscreened and embossed papers to create artsy, layered cards.  We'll fold a simple origami peacock and a very dimensional flower too!

Thanks for stopping by - have a Happy Easter if you're celebrating this weekend!  





These are just perfect treat pouches. Love the colors and sweet critters.

Wonderful, Jean! Love the dots.
