An Easter egg hunt can be a fun party, playdate, or time with family. My two favorite Easter decorating themes are bunnies and carrots, and I’ve come up with lots of ways to create DIY party fun using Fiskars tools.
Let’s start at the very beginning with an invitation that is adorable from both the front and back. Create ears by cutting out a circle from the largest Circles shape template using the Ultra ShapeXpress and repositioning the template overlapping the circle, cutting again to form an ear shape. Trace the top arch of a circle from the Super Sized Circle Template onto a folded card to cut off enough to make room for adding ears above. Corner round the bottom corners of card. When designing characters, I have found that keeping the design super simple often yields the cutest results. So this little fellow has hole punches for eyes, an oval nose, and a mouth created by partially punching an XL heart into the edge of black cardstock. Feed the punch back into the same place overlapping just slightly and punch again as shown below. A scalloped circle punch added to the back of the card adds charm as a bunny tail.
Somewhere between my obsession with banners and paper strip ornaments came the fun carrot garland above. Best of all, it’s easy to make. Using a paper trimmer, cut a 1.5 inch strip of orange cardstock and punch down both sides with scalloped border punch. Trim three strips of .75 inch green cardstock in lengths varying from 5 to 5.5 inches long. Fold all strips in half. Sandwich and staple as shown below. Pull the ends of the orange strips around and staple to secure in a carrot shape. String carrots together using a 1/16 inch hole punch.
An important part of an Easter egg hunt is, of course, something to carry your eggs in. Add color and personality to dollar store baskets with name tags and paper grass.
To make your own grass filler in custom colors, cut up a sheet of cardstock into .25 inch strips using paper trimmer. Run strips through paper crimper (you can feed several at a time), cut in half, and crumple up. Name tags punched using the XX-Large Tag are quickly embellished with bunnies creatively trimmed from flowers as shown below. 1/16 inch circle punched eyes (backed with black cardstock) and a 1/4 inch heart punched nose is all you need to give the face personality.
After hunting, the kids will likely need to refuel with a meal or snack. Cupcakes are always a popular party choice, and I decided to plant the easiest paper carrots into chocolate frosting dirt. Cut one inch strips of orange cardstock and corner round both top corners. Run a grass border punch along green cardstock and trim to create carrot tops. Glue onto flat toothpicks to insert.
I always consider the dining table part of the party décor. Here are a couple of very simple ways to add some fun to the table.
Create a dimensional placemat. Run a grass border punch along one edge of green cardstock. Using a scoring blade in your rotary trimmer, score a line one inch from the top of punched border and fold up.
Adding a small pom pom or cotton ball to a bunny’s tail is just the sweetest detail. To embellish simple patterned paper strip napkin rings, I cut out a stamped bunny from the Flower Garden stamp set and glued on a small, white pom pom.
This Easter, put your crafting tools to work to turn regular cardstock into a truly special event.
