Easy-to-make Easter Gift


Is the Easter Bunny at your house looking for easy inexpensive gifts to fill the baskets? Here's a cute and easy project:

You will need:
2 twelve inch scrapbook papers
2 plain white 8.5" x 11" papers for each booklet
miniature colored pencils (shown from Michael's Crafts)
gluestick or glue
grommets, punch and setter or sewing machine
twine or ribbon

Attach the scrapbook papers together with right sides out using the adhesive.

Cut into 4" x 12" strips. Decide which will be the outside, lay the paper with the outside down. Fold 2'' of the bottom edge up toward the center and crease. Punch holes and use grommets in the corners or stitch to make a pocket.

Bring the top edge down to the bottom fold and crease the center, it should be 5"' x 4" . Set aside the cover.

Fold the white paper lengthwise into 4.25" x 11". Cut into three strips 4.25" x 3.66" Stack the six sheets and punch holes on the crease, about an inch in from each edge.

Lay the white papers on the cover, center them and punch matching holes in the cover. Tie together with twine or ribbon.

Tuck pencils into pocket and give to darling little people.
