Well its nearly ‘that’ time again! but we all know its coming … as soon as the christmas decorations come down in the shops out comes Valentine’s Day and when thats done I am sure they just take off the hearts and stick on bunnies or rabbit ears to the displays!
Now dont get me wrong I do love Easter as we celebrate the wonderful gift God gave us and His sacrifice for us. I also love chocolate – which could be my undoing this year as I’ve now been going to Weight Watchers for a couple of months and have so far lost 3.2kg so I’m very happy with that but so dont want to put it all back on over Easter! Mind you 3kg is A LOT of chocolate!
A recent hostess asked if they could make something to give a gift for Easter in and I immediately thought of the treat pulls I made last year for the coffee sachets.
So I went to work and made one to suite the very yummy Kit Kat bar in.
Did you know that one Kit Kat (4 fingers) has 5.5 points in them on the Weight Watchers Plan? That’s 1/4 of my daily allowance – still its no match for one slice of Banana Bread from Gloria Jean’s – it has a whoppin 26.5 points in ONE slice!! and you thought it was a good choice hey??
Ok … back to the Treat Pull for the Kit Kat
How cute is this ??
You pull on the ribbon and it actually pulls out the Kit Kat.
This is very easy to make and I’d love to show you how – just book in a demonstration and I will make one at your demonstration – dont forget that the hostess gets everything I make on the day!
I’ve used the It’s Beautiful Stampin Round wheel and the Greetings Eight stamp set which is in the new 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalogue.
Now for something a little different again I made a tall 2-4-6-8 Box.
Now you could pop small easter eggs, smarties, M&M’s or Jelly Beans inside this one and it just ties up with a ribbon at the top.You could even pop in some ribbons, hodge podge hardware or brads inside. Hey even money would work!
I took a piece of whisper white cardstock and just used the flower from Simply Said and stamped it all over in four different colours. Assembled the box and tied with the wide Grosgrain Certainly Celery ribbon.
Now these are not Easter only treats – you could use them any time of the year by just changing the stamps and colours you use.
My girls are taking one of the kit kat pulls to their teachers for Easter – so yeah they make great teacher’s gifts too!
Hope you like these little boxes and I’ll see you next time – have a great night!
As the 2008-2009 Idea Book & Catalogue finishes tomorrow I now have a list of my retiring stamps for sale on the Stamp Clearance page. So have a look there and see if there is anything you must have – make sure you contact me as soon as possible as they wont last long!
