Really Reasonable Ribbon Hop, Hop, Hop: Super Sweet Easter Treat Basket
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! Welcome to the March RRR Blog Hop! You should be coming here full of inspiration from Karen’s lovely blog. If you get off track, you can find the complete hop list HERE. With Easter right around the corner, I’ve created a super sweet Easter treat basket using ribbons from the March Spring Rainbow of Color Ribbon Assortment.
These lovely ribbons look like a bed of beautiful spring tulips, don’t they?
Sweet Vintage Style Easter Cards in a Basket
The inspiration for this Sweet Easter Treat Basket was the bright, bold colors of the Tangerine Honeycomb Satin ribbon, Daffodil Checkerboard Satin Ribbon, and Apple Green Mini Hearts Grosgrain Ribbon from the assortment. They make me think of carrots, which makes me think of bunnies which make me think of the Easter Bunny. Yes, I have a strange and frightening mind. LOL
It’s easy to turn a Graphic 45 Staples Long tag into a basket. Simply score twice, fold and add sides.
The basket is filled with cute vintage style cards and mini chocolates. The great thing about a treat caddy like this is that you can fill it with other goodies once you’ve sent out all the cards!
What’s in the Super Sweet Easter Treat Basket?
I created a trio of vintage style Easter cards using Graphic 45’s Le Cirque collection (retired) and darling vintage Easter images from Polly’s Paper Studio Etsy Shop. It may seem odd to use circus themed papers for Easter, but the colors of this collection really worked with the vintage style images and rainbow colored ribbons. This 3/8″ Capri Blue Diamond Satin ribbon pops against the yellows on this cute little card.
I covered mini clothespins with paper from the collection for extra fun.
These vintage style buttons look great with the Daffodil Checkerboard Satin ribbon!
Each card is finished on the inside with a little Easter greeting, a decorated mini envelope and a tasty chocolate treat.
