Because I only started blogging a year ago and last Easter I was just stepping into the world of tutorials and such and I didn't have nearly as many readers as I do now, there are many of you who may have not ever seen this project or tutorial so I thought I would repost a link to my Easter basket from last year. Go here to see it. The picture below is the on I made for Small fry last year.
This year I had a brilliant idea last Sat morning to try and turn these formula cans into Easter baskets for the girls. (These formula cans just seem too craft worthy to throw away, though I don't keep all of them). So here is my before...
and here is my after.
And here is a closer look. I just used doubled sided tape and scrapbook paper to cover the cans. The little Easter guys are made out of fun foam and I used a Snipit's pattern from Pebbles in my Pocket to make them. The baskets aren't really huge but I am not a fan of over doing the Easter baskets especially not for little kids who will look at the toys once and chuck them under the back of the toilet and play with the plunger instead. So these will hold a few little trinkets and I think I will make some decorated sugar cookies also. Stay tuned for those.
