I am far from a crafty sort of person. Put a pencil, paper, fabric, needles, glitter, popsicle sticks — anything — and I won’t know what to do with it. I’ve tried sewing and can’t do it. I’ve tried knitting and can’t do it. I’ve tried drawing and can’t do it. I’ve tried painting and I can’t do it. I can’t even make scrapbooks look nice!
But that’s not to say that I don’t enjoy spending an evening with scissors and glue. I just tend to stay towards the um… Sunday School for kids sort of crafts. Give me a template of a lion for a 5 year old and I’ll have a grand time putting it together.
Tonight I got the itch. I wanted to make something — do something with my hands — so I tried my hand at the easiest Easter craft.
I went to the kids section at Martha Stewart’s and found this to make (I know — pretty juvenile for a 21 year old).
Although you don’t need a terrible lot of supplies to make this, I found that I didn’t have everything I needed. So with a few adjustments I created the bunny with the world’s biggest nose.
But hey, it works. Proof that you don’t always need it to look exactly like the picture.
So sweet. I had a strange sort of bunny bag. What next?
Make paper grass of course! And if you’re lucky, you’ll be an office worker like me, live a one minute drive away from said workplace, and be able to hop on over and use the paper shredder to make fun colorful grass!
I filled the bag bunny with the grass and an assortment of Easter candy, made a simple homemade card, and had a little something to send off in the mail this morning to a friend.
This is perfect for a child (you might want to go for something a bit more mature looking if you’re my age or older) to make (my younger brother is going to be trying his hand at it this morning) and is quick, simple, and easy if you’re in a hurry for a gift of some sort for them to send out!
*What I would do differently the second time around: cut the ears lower and not have such a long headed bunny. =)
