Succulent egg garden

Try this fun and easy succulent garden.  I used real brown eggs.  When I was making breakfast I carefully took the top of a kitchen knife and tapped the top of the egg to create a small hole, then I peeled back the shell to give it that crocked look.
Fill the inside of the egg with just a little bit of potting soil.
I added chicks and hens succulents from my garden.  If you don't have any growing they can be found at your local nursery. 

The egg cartons are just the ones the eggs come in from the grocery store that I cut down to a four size.
Super easy and oh so caute!!!!

Getting ready for Easter around here.  That means decorating!
Here are a few of my favorite Rae Dunn Easter pieces.  
I'll post some more ideas as I put more up this weekend.
Get "crackin" on your succulent garden!

Mini Egg cartons

Little mini egg cartons all decorated and ready to fill will treats.
We sell these cute little egg carton right now in our Occasions mini catalog, but unfortunately they are sold out at this time.
They have four spots in them to fill up with treats or plastic eggs and grass.  I wrapped a belly band around these and adhered it with scotch tape and then tied a raffia ribbon around it and added the bunny tag.

The bunny tag is a 4" x 2" piece of blushing bride cardstock that I punched out with our tag punch.   I used a polka dot gold  vellum overlay and added the bunny to the top with the flower punch as his tail.

Even the plastic egg with fit in here!  All the items you see are inside it once closed.  It holds a good amount.

Bunny Jar

 At my creative class last friday this is one of the projects we made.
Aren't they adorable!  These are made by purchasing ball jars and these plaster of paris bunnies from the Dollar Tree.  They are in the Easter section and come packaged with paint and a paint brush.  

I used a glue gun to attach the lids together and then used E6000 glue to attach the bunnies to the top of the lid.   Then I spray painted them, the color I used is called Robin's Egg Blue.  
Add some cute jelly beans and some raffia ribbon.

Butterflies Framelit

Back to our regularly scheduled color combo of crumb cake, blushing bride and soft sky.  I LOVE these colors right now!
Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake and Soft Sky- Gahhhh!

I used the Butterflies Framelit to cut out the butterfly from glimmer paper.  You can see how shimmery the paper is.  Soo gorg!
The background is the Hardware stamp with Basic Gray ink.
