Easter Preparations

Aren't these just the cutest?
I can thank The Graphics Fairy for them.
I LOVE - LOVE the Graphics Fairy.
The little bunnies are called spool pets and after printing out I cut along the dotted line.
Instead of a spool, (to keep the Easter theme), I wrapped two little solid chocolate eggs in cellophane then attached the front and rear of the bunny onto each end of the wrapped eggs. I used double sided tape to do this as I HATE using glue...I make such a MESS!
To finish off, a little pom pom was attached to the tail. VOILA!
One of each of these rabbits is going to all my Easter giftees this year. I've made four...how many to go?
Also found these lovely vintage Easter cards at the Graphics Fairy blog which I've printed out at A5 size, inserted into cellophane bags filled with solid chocolate eggs.

Staple down the top, add bows, or whatever else takes your fancy and such a gorgeous Easter gift without the expense.
These will all be handed out to loved ones on Easter Sunday.
For the men in my life, I skipped the eggs and bows and bought each of them a block of their favourite chocolate, which I wrapped in silver wrap and attached a rabbit to the front(looking a bit Frank-Bunny-ish I must admit), also from GF. 
Good Friday, for lunch,we eat hard boiled eggs (which I usually decorate by boiling wrapped in onion skins) and Hot Cross Buns.  

I should add, that I used light card to print my graphics onto.
