So Punny takeout containers

Hi everyone!  It’s Karen and today, I have a treat for you! I love this time in the crafting industry because new collections and product abound!  In fact, with In fact, with Creativtion going on right now in Phoneix, they are popping up like amazing flowers in the middle of the winter doldrums, and it is so fun to see what is new and exciting!

I am sure it comes as no surprise that Doodlebug’s new So Punny collection is at the top of my list.  I squealed…yes, squealed…the first time I saw it!  I mean come on!  It doesn’t get cuter or more versatile than this fun collection!  From bacon to gnomes to sewing machines to sushi, this collection has it all!  And I couldn’t help but start my crafty fun with a sushi-themed project!

I have a bunch of ideas of how to use these containers and more details about the products over on the Doodlebug blog, so i invite you to come on over and take a look.  There is a tonne of inspiration right now for this collection, and you will be blown away by how versatile this collection really is.

 

In the meantime, thanks for stopping by!

Bunny hop topWelcome to the Trendy Twine Bunny Hop!  We are so excited to be releasing a new colour today called Bubblegum Taffy (an adorable combination of aqua, pink and white), so we wanted to celebrate by sharing some inspiration and giving away some goodies to a lucky reader!

If you arrived here from Helen’s blog, you are well on your way and almost done the hop.  If not, hop on back to Trendy Twine and start there…you don’t want to miss out on your chance to win!

I decided to make a little treat container that would make a cute addition to any Easter dinner or event.

Bunny-full

I used an awesome little template from Mukluk.net – a pdf that prints out on 8 1/2″X11″ paper.  I punched a circle for the face, and then cut some ear and feet shapes.  I lined the inside of the ears with cute pink paper from Echo Park, and then edged the paper with the Bubblegum Taffy twine.  I added a couple of bows to the side, and then….my favourite part….

Bunny-tail

The tail! I used the fork trick to make an awesome little pompom for a tail…

Now, a treat container is not complete without a treat, so I have a good one for you today.  I recently pinned this super easy recipe for coconut cream cheese bunny tails, and I thought  they were perfect for this treat container.  Click here to see the recipe.
