Easter Egg Holders

Sponsor: Crafty Pad
Theme: Furry Friends

The 2 Sisters DT was given the images, "Bunny 2 and Bunny 3" by Crafty Pad to create with.  When I saw the images, my mind immediately envisioned some sort of holder for plastic Easter eggs.  They would make great little place setting decor for your Easter dinner table and you can add some little treats to the eggs.

Here is what I came up with:

 I started with some card stock and measured the eggs to see how long the strip of card stock needed to be.  These are made with the large plastic eggs that I found at Hobby Lobby.  An 8.5" strip gives you a little extra to work with.  The holder is 2" tall.  I punched one long edge with the Apron Lace punch and a combination of polka dot and striped patterned paper.  It's hard to see since the bunnies take up most of the front.  The bunnies were quick and easy to color, cut out and attach to the egg holders.  The one tip that I do have for you is to use a really strong tape (Red Line or Scor Tape) to keep everything together and I even used it to attach the bunnies. 











I can't wait to see all your Furry Friend creations that you come up with!
