Easter Treat Cups

Easter fun at The Cutting Cafe!

One of the things I miss about having young children in our home during Easter is that the Easter bunny doesn't visit. We've all outgrown him so if we want candy we have to make our own baskets. What is really sad is when your kids say "you don't have to make me a basket anymore." Now I wish they'd ask me IF I'd like a basket because this chocaholic is not going to turn down candy, ever. Thankfully, Regina created Easter Treat Cup cards which are perfect for older kids / people with a sweet tooth, like me and the hubster. 

I created this card for him and I'm going to fill it with "bunny droppings" for a little humor. He's always teasing me and I know he'll get a chuckle out of it. Of course I'll have a stash of Reese's Pieces for him to munch on and I plan to cook a wonderful Easter meal for us to enjoy after church to balance out all the candy. :-) 

The sentiment is from the Bunny Treat Cup Card set, one of 3 sets offered, in the Easter Treat Cup Cards file. I chose to have the bunny face forward on my card but you have the option to have him face backward as well. The "clouds" I used are actually the bunny's fluffy tail which you'd add to the front of the treat cup if using the backward view. I used a MS grass border punch but there's also grass included in the file. You can see below the different options and a Bunny Treat Cup card designed by Regina Easter with the front and side view.

A slide inserted (included) allows the recipient quick and easy access to the candy by pulling the tab. These are a lot of fun to make and every time I give someone a treat cup card it puts a smile on their face which makes me a happy girl. :)
