Tuesday Tip: Cute and Quick Easter Gift

Today’s Tuesday Tip is to use what you got!

Designer Shaunte Wadley has the cutest little Easter Bunny treat for us today. It is a great way to use up some scraps and there is a good possibility that you have all of this already at your finger tips.

So here is a little bit about it from Shaunte herself:

Here is a quick and easy Easter Treat cup using Core’dinations scraps from your stash, and a grocery store cup.
The cup is just a plain white plastic cup.
For the ears, I folded a piece of Pink Core Whitewash in half. I free hand cut the ear, and since the paper was doubled, I had matching ears. I sanded the edges so the pink would come through.
I repeated the same fold and cut technique with a scrap of Pink Spotted Jillian Dot cardstock. I trimmed it slightly smaller to nest inside the Whitewash ear.

For the bunny face, I punched two 1″ circles from Whitewash. One 1/2″ circle from the Spotted.
I trimmed a scrap of white for the teeth, and glued them together as shown.
Add a couple of google eyes, and hot glue all of the elements to your cup.

Easy as can be! Would be great to mass produce- who doesn’t have scraps and plastic cups? Cheap, and pretty darn cute.
