Happy Easter Everyone! May your day be filled with family, friends and loved ones. I wanted to share this last minute Easter treat idea. When I came across this mold, I had to have it! How funny and cute is it! The possibilities for this mold are endless. After my Bunny Faces & Bum post earlier this week I knew I wanted to share these funny chocolate Bunny Bum suckers. These are super simple to make and well the funny factor is key! I made these with my girls and we had a blast not only making them but coming up with the hang tag and putting them together just in time for Easter. These would make cute party favors or you could make a center piece with them.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Begin by melting your pink chocolate melts 30 seconds at a time until smooth. You will then want to place the chocolate in a small sandwich bag and start piping it into the mold.

Once your done place your mold for about 10 minutes in the fridge till harden.

You will want to repeat the first step with the white chocolate melts. Remove the mold from fridge and pour the white chocolate in the mold. Place the mold back in the fridge for about 20 minutes till harden.

At this point lay out a sheet of parchment paper and proceed to melt a small amount of white chocolate to attach the bunny bums to the sucker sticks.

I placed a small amount on the back of each bunny bum to attach the sucker stick and let them sit for a few hours to harden.

While you wait for them to be set, you can download and print the pre made hang tag.

Finally you can place your chocolate suckers in your small treat bags and make a hole punch in each tag and attach it to the sucker with choice of ribbon.

Now you can give them away and keep some for yourself to enjoy!

Let’s hop to it! There is nothing cuter than an Easter Bunny and nothing better than Easter Candy! One of our traditions is dying Easter eggs and going on an Easter egg hunt. My daughter’s absolutely love jelly beans and must have a chocolate Easter Bunny. You may remember me making these Candy Tummy Bats over on the Silhouette Blog. They were such a huge hit with the kiddos that I decided to make something similar for Easter! These bunny faces and bums will be filled with jelly beans. I found the amazing designs at the Silhouette design store. These bunny treats would make a great table place setting and take away favors. I will say that I may love these even more than the Candy Tummy Bats but at the moment it’s a toss up. What do you guys think? I would love to hear which is your favorite.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Begin by spray painting your round metal tins in white. Once you have done that you will want to let them sit for a day or so to cure.

Start by choosing your bunny face and bunny bum design over at Silhouette! I used these designs ID #26513 & #184795.

Prep and lay out your files to fit your container of choice. In order for our bunny face and bum to work we made a circle and placed it in the center of the bunny in order to see the candy inside.

At this time you will cut your files with your Silhouette and begin to place each bunny carefully onto your round tin tops using either glue dots or a hot glue gun.

Once you have done that cut your bunny ears, faces, tails and feet out of black, pink and black card stock then place them on your bunny face and bum with glue.

Finally you can fill your bunny faces and bums full of candy.

These are super simple to make and make the funniest little treats!

Each year, I try to come up with a new spin on Valentines. If you follow me on Instagram you know how much I love these mini shot bottles especially as gifts. These Valentines are by far the funniest I have done. The idea came to me when I was trying to think of a fun couples valentine. All you need is some paper, printer, Silhouette or Xacto knife, ribbon and mini shot bottles. I chose to go with the Kinky pink and the pink UV vodka bottle. The first valentine is “Let’s get KINKY” and the second one is “I lUV the shot out of you”! Now I will be completely honest and say that I was not sure I was going to post this project but my BFF laughed so hard and loved them so much she made me do it. LOL

I went with a gradient paper and I love how they turned out. This idea could very well be used for party favors, bachelorette parties or just a fun girls night out. So I hope you get a good laugh out of these and now I leave you with these Boozy Valentines.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Begin by downloading our design and purchasing your box file from Silhouette.

Once you have opened your files prep your Silhouette files to the right size and print and cut. Your overall size for the box needs to be 9.000 w x 5.650 h and you will need to make a rectangle for the opening of your box to 0.854 w x 2.902 h to ensure your bottles are visible and fit tightly in your box.

At this point you will send both your box and tags to cut. Now you are able to fold them and tape them together using your glue dots.

Once you have done that you can add your bottle, ribbon and hang tag and you are all ready to gift these fun valentines.

One of my favorite holidays is Valentines day. I love to decorate with all the pinks, reds and heart shaped accents. I’m not gonna lie but I think a major part of my love for Valentines day has to be all the chocolate I can eat! Every year I try to come up with at least one Valentines idea for my daughter to hand out to her friends.  These “Carry my Heart with you..” color block earring cards turned out so cute! I wanted to create a special gift that not only they could keep but also wear. I have totally been crushing on different shades of pink and my love for color blocking is still going strong, so the design for these was no surprise. Possibilities are endless but you could use any color combo, design and charm to create your own Valentine. The best part of this idea is that your kids can help you paint them and put them together, girl time!. I have attached the free printable design so all you have to do is attach them to your card and your ready to go. I even went as far as using my Silhouette Cameo 3 to cut out the cutest little heart openings to attach the heart earrings. I really don’t know what I would do without my Silhouette, it is truly one of my go to crafting must haves.

Instructions:

Begin by placing a pencil mark on the top center of your heart shape and drill a 1/2 inch hole. At this point you will do the same to the bottom center of your heart shape.

Once you have drilled your hole you will want to choose your paint colors. I decided to paint mine pink on pink, now you can tape them in any colorblock design. I gave mine about 3 coats of paint and let them dry.

Once dry you can remove the tape and attach your gold hooks and heart charm and your all set.

Now you are ready to download and print your cards. I used my Silhouette to print and cut my cards as I wanted to have little heart openings to hold the earrings. You can also just print them and cute out the cards by hand and use a hole punch or small heart punch.

Now you have a great set of heart earrings just in time for Valentines Day!

#SUNDAYFUNDAY may call for a boozy Malibu & Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Float! I kinda stumbled upon this amazingly tasty float by accident, but let me first start by telling you the story behind my  love of “RUM”. I’m not a big drinker so when I do, I like it to be a sweet treat! Last time I traveled to Puerto Rico I had the pleasure of visiting and touring the Bacardi Factory. Now these people know how to welcome their guests! Not only do they have a fully decked out bar, Bacardi gift shop but also a guided tour of their facility. You can even have your photo taken with the Bacardi logo to remember your fun experience. You can also enjoy the tasting tour where you can sample all of their new flavors and specialized drinks, AMAZING! You must be 21 to partake in all these fun activities of course. They even offer a mixology class where they teach you how to prepare some of their legendary cocktails. WHAT??!!! Where do I sign up.

Now back to this simple yet tasty float. I had just made a Malibu and Coke and was sitting at the table when my little one decided not to finish her ice cream. Being the lover of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream I am I could not let it go to waste. WALA and just like that a yummy float was born! I love hosting and having little gatherings at the house especially in the summer, since we are often poolside. There is nothing better than having a few friends over for a laid back and casual get together.
