Happy Easter everyone! Hope your weather is better than ours today. After weeks of sunshine and very warm temps we expect a high of 59 degrees and rain. Bummer! Will be off to our annual Easter dinner at Auberge du Soleil. Guess no sitting on the balcony today. Thought I'd share some cute Easter crackers I made with TP rolls and adorable images from the Gecko Galz Easter Circles and 1x2" collage set. Another easy recycling project but pretty fun little favors, if I do say so myself. Covered the tubes with paper (not card stock, it's easier to stay stuck) and resized the 1x2's in my printing program to fit the tubes. Wish I'd printed them on copy paper instead of card stock as you really need some strong adhesive to keep them on there. (It helps to sort of roll the images a bit, but still!) I cut them out (3 per roll), inked the edges and added pom pom trim. Rolled up goodies in tissue paper, stuffed the tubes and tied with ribbon on each end. Added some Melissa Frances embellies to the top and there ya go. Have a wonderful day.
I'm entering these in the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Easter or Spring challenge, and Decorate to Celebrate ATG Challenge.
