Welcome to part 2 of my family party posts!
Because we decided to organise games for both children and adults alike, and a quiz for the adults, we had to think of some prizes.
We decided on little bags containing mini chocolate Easter eggs and mini chocolate bunnies for the children. I cut these out using my Cameo and a template from Serif Craft Artist.
For the adult prizes I made some boxes and filled them with either Ferrero Roche chocolates or some liqueuer chocolates.
These boxes were made from Centura Pearl card from Crafters Companion and I used a couple of different embossing folders to make top and side panels. I finished them with ribbon and some decoupaged pansies - and I can't believe that I forgot to take photographs of the finished boxes. Here is one I cropped from a larger photograph so my apologies as the quality isn't too good.
Those funny looking fluffy balls in the photograph are the bunnies tails I made for Pin the Tail on the Bunny. (Well it was Easter Sunday so a rabbit seemed appropriate!) I cut the shapes from paper using my Cameo (even put a tag on them for the names!) and then glued a cotton wool ball onto them. I used some small squares of double sided sticky paper for actually sticking the tails onto the poster. I eventually found a colouring picure of a rabbit on the internet at www.lucylearns.com so downloaded it, digitally removed the original tail and added a red cross for where the tail should be in Paint, enlarged it and used the Poster Print facility to print it out over nine pages. Here is the image I used to print the poster.
And just to finish off this post here is a picture of the poster in use!
Thank you for dropping in.
