Smooches Class Project

This is a beautiful project that we made on Thursday night, and so simple to make, these would make a great gift for teachers at the end of the year or Administrative professionals day!
I created the envelope with the simply scored tool, 7 1/2 x 7 1/2 scored at 4 inches on opposite corners and 3 inches on the other two corners. Inside we used three note cards and envelopes from stampin up, with a simple stamp and phrase on the outside of the card.

He is Risen

Easter has a purpose, a meaning, a hope, a love...Easter is more than candy, baskets, eggs and bunnies. Easter is forgiveness, hope, peace, joy, love, and eternity. 

"For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God." 1 Peter 1: 18-21

Easter Treats

I needed a cute treat to give to sunday school teachers and friends. I found these little buckets at target in the dollar section, they had ribbon handles...well I had to give it my own Easter touch. 
I removed the ribbon and tore strips of twitterpated fabric to make my Easter handles, filled bags of candy and tied it with some certainly celery ribbon. 
I made these little tags to go on the buckets and my daughter signed them on the back to give as gifts. I love the girl bunny for Addie and the boy bunny for Ethan! I love this set, perfect for Easter!
