Colorful eggs, bunnies and a bear

Happy midweek, everybody! It is finally getting warmer here in SoCal and I couldn't be happier about it. Bye-bye winter, hello spring! :p Anyway, in today's post I want to show you a little something I've prepared for our adorable nieces, Nathalie and Breanne. Since Easter is round the corner, I thought I could give Amber Lee's idea a try; so this past weekend, I stocked myself with the necessary supplies to be able to send our nieces these Easter eggs.

For this project I used: a hole punch, colorful construction paper, M&M's minis, jumbo plastic eggs, bunny shaped erasers, labels and some pins which you can see in the photo below.

I made confetti with the punch and stuffed it into the eggs together with the chocolate, 2 pins and a bunny.

As for the postage, I stuck a $1.05 stamp + a forever stamp on each egg.

Oh, and the Peep bunnies are available to download at The Paper Mama.

I'm going to drop these eggs in the mail box in the post office near the library  later today. I'll let you know if the girls get them; fingers crossed! :D

So, what's up with the bear I mentioned in the title of this post? Look up; notice anything new on the left corner? Yep! I got a favicon :p. Wanna have one, too? Go check ChiWei's post to learn how to do it; it's a piece of cake. All you need is a square photo ;). I used the pic of my bear bag from one of my buttons.

Have a great day, everyone! ;D

Hey lady! You're such a crafty little thing. I hope the eggs make it! I'll cross my fingers too :) They are adorable! My mom did non-traditional easter baskets for the grand kids (my brothers kids) she bought little plastic toolboxes for the boys and little plastic make up cases for the girl and put confetti and easter like decor in each of them. It was adorable. Thanks for sharing yours! And your favicon is adorable...I need to update mine!
