Hello! How has your weekend been so far? I hope you are having a good one! ;) We had spring break this last week, but it doesn’t actually feel like spring just yet. It was rainy & cold all last week! Buuuut that didn’t stop us from doing some spring crafting with the Skittles & Starburst 30 Pack from Sam's Club. Spring is a busy time of year. You have Mother’s Day, teacher appreciations, Easter & in our family ~ lots of birthdays! So the kiddos & I had fun coming up with some fun & easy spring gift ideas for the very important people in our lives! So keep reading to see what we came up with. Plus I have some free printables for you, too! ;)

Don’t you just LOVE Sam’s Club? I was able to find this HUGE box of Skittles & Starburst for an awesome price in the candy aisle. So we had plenty of candy for all of our gifts & for us, too! ha!

flower teacher gift #shop

This flower bouquet was so easy to make! First you’ll cut some cardstock & chipboard flowers out. I used my Silhouette to do this. You could also use a flower punch or even trace some flowers & cut them out with scissors. I used 2 colored cardstock flowers & a chipboard flower glued in the middle to make the flowers super sturdy.

Then I glued Skittles in a colorful pattern to make my flowers pretty. ;) I used hot glue, but for kids some school glue would be better to use. You’d just have a little bit longer drying time.

Once our flowers were done. I hot glued paper straws to the back with a little bit of hot glue.

Then I got a cute little green bucket & put a piece of craft foam inside. I stuck my flowers inside that.

Then I filled in with some paper Easter grass.

I glued on some paper leaves. Then I added a cute tag with some polka dotted ribbon. Too cute! :)

This little bunny bucket is so easy to make! I just cut out some bunny ears with white cardstock & hot glued them to the back rim of the bucket. Then I added a cute bunny face with a cute Skittle nose on the front. Then I used a paint pen to draw on the whiskers, & I added some googly eyes.

Then I added a cotton ball for the bunny tail on the back of the bucket! Fill your bucket with lots of Skittles & Starburst, and you’ll have a sweet gift to give. :)

We were saying “Happy Burst Day” all night! haha! ;) I got this idea from Amber at Crazy Little Projects. You’ll have to pop over to her blog to download the cute Happy Burst Day printables that she shared over there!
