a gift to give - Easter bunnies & chocolate

Look! I actually did something crafty...

We're moving in less than a week (for real this time) and I just couldn't resist giving our current neighbors one last gift for the holidays! I already shared this Easter bunny, but yesterday during the kids' naps I whipped up 5 more to use as gifts for the neighbors.

I wanted to give them some sort of a treat, too, so I filled empty bottles of Starbucks Frappucino bottles full of Easter candy.

{a bunny's not complete without its cottontail}

Instead of using ribbon around the lid, I cut strips of decorative paper and glued them, followed by a circle punch from green, a scallop punch of pink and a Happy Easter greeting from the Boos Family (printed off from the computer) to go on top.

Mikayla loves going to the neighbors to hand out treats. We'll just have to wait until the rain goes's been a wet one today.

Want the tutorial to make one of these bunnies for yourself? Visit my Stampin' Up! blog to find it.

It's amazing how quickly a year goes by!
This was our "sweet tweet" we gave last year for Easter.

I agree with Sally that your neighbors really are going to miss you. I love the bunny and especially the tail. I think it is sweet that you took the time to make a craft with all the stuff you have going on!

Totally adorable and thoughtful! Of course, I'm sure it was a real sacrifice drinking all of those frappacinos to make the bunnies, eh? Way to sacrifice!
