With our nice selection of alterable items at www.RaisinBoat.com, it's fun to dress up our alterables for any holiday.
Here's a few I made for our show last weekend. These are inexpensive gift ideas that are also nice reminders of those Easter baskets from our childhood years!
You're eggs-tra special!
I filled our square tin with large white malted milk speckled eggs. They are so cute in there! I added a tag using our set, "Spring is in the Air." The bow is using our new BoatHouse Collection(TM) ribbons that match our cardstock line.
|For a quick gift, fill our square tin with candy eggs and add the message,|
"You're eggs-tra special" from the set, Spring is in the Air.
Our rectangular tin makes a great container for brightly colored jelly beans! I added a tag using our bunny from "Bunny Hop" and finished it off with more Raisin Boat ribbons. The same set also has a phrase that says, "Eat your beans...jelly beans, that is!"which would be really cute on a tin of bright beans, too. See the card below for a tag idea.

Sweet Mini Pails for Easter
We just added these adorable pails to our store. They come in a couple of sizes. This is the smallest one at 2.75" X 2.75". It's the perfect size for a handful of candies. Here's some ideas to dress it up.
I used "Bunny Hop" for the top design and added ribbon in Sky View to finish the side.
|Get the right ribbon color everytime with|
BoatHouse Collection(TM) ribbons.
I added a cushion dimension to "pop" the tulip in his hand. Since the lid sits down below the pail edge, it's protected by the pail's sides.
|Use Copics to color our bunny. In this example, I|
color-blocked the background for interest.
Here's another pail using the colors Lemon Glaze, Sky View and Sweet Cheeks. This one is so sweet and cute. It would make a great bridal or baby shower table decoration or guest gift idea.
|Use Hershey colored eggs - they match beautifully with our|
BoatHouse colored ribbons, too!
The Clear Scallop Edge Boxes make cute egg and jelly bean holders! Put the eggs or beans inside or on top for a cute gift idea.
|Our clear bottles are inexpensive and pretty with |
their cork tops. They have a natural organic feel to them.
|Our purse boxes can be used in so many ways. Add a gift |
card or a large bunny for the older kids.
