Easter S'mores in a jar

I saw this done a couple of years ago and it was so cute and then I found the recipe and the picture so I wanted to share. It is an easy idea to give as a gift as well.
Easter S'mores in a Jar

  • 1. Reduce 1 sleeve graham crackers to crumbs.

  • 2. Layer 2/3 crumbs in a 1 qt. jar

  • 3. Place 8 marshmallow bunny peeps (varied colors) standing up.

  • 4. Press them up against the glass, but don't squash them.

  • 5.Carefully spoon remaining crumbs in the center of the jar to support the bunnies, pressing down to keep snug.

  • 6. On top of this, pour 1 1/4c. Easter M&Ms, gently pressing with a spoon.

  • 8. Decorater the lid of the jar however you please and tie ribbons around the neck of the jar.

  • Attach a gift tag to say:

  • Easter Bunny Smore's instructions

  • 1. Empty the jar contents into a bowl. Snip the bunnies into bits with kitchen sheers or cut up with a knife. Return bunny bits to the mixture. Mix well.

  • 2. Melt 1/2 c. butter, add 1 tsp. vanilla. Pour this over the dry ingredients, mixing well. Pat into a greased 9" square pan.

  • 3. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.

  • Makes 9-12 bars.

  • Happy Easter!

Calling all paper scraps...

I saw an idea like this on studio 5 but it was done with large pieces of paper so I had an idea to make flowers instead and give them to the great ladies I visit teach. I started out with 2 inch strips of paper and cut them 12 inches long. You will need 2 strips for each flower. I then used a paper punch to punch out the flowers and the circles. I think this project is easy enough that you could get kids to help you fold the strips.I used a glue stick to the 2 strips together and then used the glue gun to to glue the circles onto the fan flowers. Be careful to not let the fans invert or you will get a hot glue burn like I did. Hold them in place for a  minute and then glue the wooden shishkabob scewer on the back. Add a little ribbon and a hershey kiss for the center and you have a cute bouquet! I filled the empty chili sauce jars with easter candy,(I knew I saved those cute little jars for something.) and then made a tag and tied some green rafia ribbon around the base. The chocolate pops are just a carmel put on a lollipop stick and dipped in dark chocolate and then I drizzled white chocolate on the top. They are easy peasy and very yummy!

You can make cute ceiling and window hangings with these just make them in a larger size and hang them with fishing line from the window or the ceiling. Have fun using up all of your paper scraps!

I'm thinking Spring!

I decided to make a fabric Spring hat because it is just feeling like it should be SPRING!I lined the hat with a coordinating striped fabric and made the flower out of both fabrics. the price for this one is $12.00 I then decided to make some springy shoes did you know that this color of blue turqoise is the color for this year! I then thought I better make some boy ones to match.  These are also $12.00I did some experimenting with the felt flowers for head bands. They are on a clip so you can interchange them on any color of headband, hat ,bag or anything you would want to clip it on.The cost for these are $3.50 for the flower clip and $.50 for the band.I have a hard time coming up with as cute of ideas for boys but I thought this cap turned out okay. I probably would make the visor a little narrower but it would be great to keep the sun off of a cute little baby face. cost for this one is $10.00
So I hope this gets you inspired for SPRING! I can't wait until all of our snow is gone. Yes, we still have snow!!

A hand out for YW

This is the hand out and I printed it on white 8x11 inch card stock.This is the finished project.

I had this idea to give as a hand out for our YW lesson on temple marriage. I liked the idea because it was something the girls could put in their closet or hang in their room and every time they saw it they could evaluate their preparedness to go to the temple. I told them they could only hang their temple dress on this hanger so I hope it helps them "Hang on to their goals."
I wanted to find a padded white satin hanger but I was unable to find one in time for the lesson so I bought a white hanger and decorated it with white ribbon roses and made the handout to hang on to the hanger.
If you would like to contact me please e-mail me at
I will be glad to help you with any projects of mine that you are working on. If I don't know the answer I will sure try and find out.
Thanks for looking at my craft blog!
