Happy Easter!!! (Really this time!)

I didn't think I would have a chance to get back on my blog and do a post but I had a quick crafty moment the other night so here were are!

I wanted to bring my boss and neighbor down the hall a little goodie for Easter.  And just about the time my old brain was tick-tocking 'what to do, what to do', I got an email newsletter from  The blog post was for Easter projects include little round can toppers for these bunny pails....

Here's the link for the howdoesshe blog post and the direct link to the blog post by Jenny, the woman who created the free download for the can tops.  Six toppers print on a page and you can punch them out with a 2 1/2" circle punch.  Easy as "can" be.  lol  Couldn't help myself. 

I couldn't find any Big League Chew (gum) that they call for in the freebie so I used Sweetart jelly beans.  Can you say DELICIOUS?  And the colors were just right! 

The cans at Michael's are a little too pricey for my liking, around $5 each.  When I spotted these cans in the dollar spot (at either Target or Michael's - I can't remember which) about a month ago for $1 each, I grabbed five bucks worth.  And as usual, I wish I would've purchased more than five!  They are a little taller than the ones at Michael's but they worked and the price was right!

Because they are a little taller, there was room for a little something inside the center.  I put a Skittles egg but a few chocolates or a gift card would work too.

I know the meaning behind Easter isn't all about bunnies but I can't help falling into the trap bunnies, pastel colors and Springtime.  I hope you have a wonderful Easter with your family and friends at this wonderful time of year.
