Today I have some gift giving ideas for you. These are specifically decorated for Easter, but they would be great for the upcoming May Day holiday too!
Often on Easter it can be a tradition to give small gifts to children, friends and/or neighbors. I found a recipe online for a fun little Easter Bunny Mix and mixed all of the ingredients (listed below) together and then added them to the new Clear Gift Boxes that Lil' Inker Designs is now carrying! These boxes are the perfect size to hold card sets to give to friends, but I wanted to use it in a different way. The boxes come with two clear circle tabs so you have an easy way to close the box to secure your contents.
I wrapped a clear/printed piece of acetate around the box. Then I attached a tag to it that I made by die cutting the new Stitched Easter Basket Die from patterned paper. I die cut & stamped the tulip from the fabulous new Fresh Cut Flowers stamps & Fresh Cut Flowers dies. Last but not least, I die cut the previously released Bunnies & Bows die cut bunny rabbit and pink bow and then stamped the new sentiment set that coordinates with the bunny dies called Easter Hodge Podge Stamps (which also coordinates with the new Egg & Flower Greetings Die Set).

Honey Roasted Peanuts
Mix these together in whatever quantities you choose. (That's it!)
Another new gift-giving product in the store are Clear Cone Treat Bags. You can fill these with so many things, but I went with red/pink jelly beans to stick with the Easter theme.
For the tag that I attached to the cone, I die cut the new Embossed Dots Tag Die on a patterned paper from the new Easter Greetings Paper Pack. I really like the embossed circles look!
I die cut the Stitched Easter Basket die from white paper and also die cut the egg that comes in that die set, from a couple more of the new prints included in the Easter Greetings Paper Pack. Using the same die set, I die cut the gold bow. I die cut the bunny from the Bunnies & Bows die set & then stamped the sentiment from the new Easter Hodge Podge stamp set & embossed it in gold. I LOVE how these sentiments are made to fit inside the bunny!
