Have you ever wondered what materials your Cricut Explore and Cricut Maker can cut? Today I’m going to show you how to create an easy easter bunny craft using a cereal box and your Cricut.This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.
The new Cricut Maker has a setting that you can choose cereal box. It was insanely easy and all you need in addition to the materials that come with your Maker is the Deep Cut Blade. Click on the link to the Design Space file above and it will take you to the file to make this exact bunny and bow. Just size it however you want it.Begin by cutting all your materials. For the cereal box, I chose to have it do a double cut just to insure a clean cut. To do this all you have to do is not unload it. Once your image has cut just press the go button again. This will be sure that the lines are cut on the same spot. If you unload it and then try to cut it again, your images will not be cut exactly like before.I had some cotton balls on hand and just glued it to the tail area. I did the same with the cardstock bow. I used Cricut Cardstock in Rose and used the fine point blade and did a double cut as well.Just place your Easter Bunny craft wherever you want and it’s the perfect addition to your holiday decor.

This is such a fun and easy way to personalize Easter eggs using your Cricut Explore. Just use the Print then Cut feature and you’re set. I grabbed some eggs from the Dollar Spot at Target and then the wheels started turning.
I like to use the printable vinyl when I’m putting the stickers on a non-flat surface because it’s thinner and more pliable.Once you’ve opened the Cricut file with the images already sized for you, select Go. It will bring up a print and mat preview and then select Go again. Go ahead and load your printable vinyl into your printer and then select that green print page button. The print prompt screen will show up and go ahead and print the paper like you normally would a regular image.Load your printed vinyl onto a mat and set your smart dial to vinyl. This will give it the perfect kiss cut that all stickers need. Once your mat is loaded, select the go button and the Cricut will now start reading your registration marks and then it will begin cutting.Unload your mat and get your eggs ready. Just peel and stick the stickers right on there and you’ll have the perfect personalized Easter eggs to enjoy throughout the holiday. And since they’re plastic, you can enjoy them next year too!
Peeps Rice Krispie Treats are delicious but even better in Easter form. Use your favorite Easter Bunny cookie cutter and make these look like the real deal.This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.
Oh my gosh! These are so good and not too overly sweet. Our kids love these as a fun Easter snack. I’m going to show you how to create your own Peeps Rice Krispie Treats for Easter. Supplies –
Begin by melting one package of Peeps, 1/4 cup of butter and 2 cups of marshmallows. I used the microwave to melt the ingredients together and once it came out, I gave it a good stir. Next, add 2 cups of Rice Krispie cereal and mix it well. You’ll then pour it onto a 1/4 sheet pan. To press down the treats easily, wet your hands a little. It’ll make the mixture not as hot to the touch and you’ll have no marshmallows stuck to your hands afterwards. Allow the mixture to cool and cut out as many bunnies as you can. I got 8 out of each 1/4 sheet pan. Now take your black writing gel and place three dots to represent the eyes and the nose of the bunnies. Now they look just like giant peeps and taste delicious.Sometimes I find Peeps overly sweet because of the sugar coating so I’ve found that mixing them with more regular marshmallows makes them more tolerable to eat a larger amount. ?

All opinions are mine alone. #KreateMyHappy #CollectiveBiasI’m so excited for Easter and another treat I love are Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies Treats. How fun are these Rice Krispies Spring Flowers? They were so quick to make and my daughter and I had a blast making them. All we needed were some additional mini marshmallows and M&M’s. Get your kids into the kitchen and start creating! Of course, you can’t start creating until you run to your nearest Target and get all the goodies first though…
So I grabbed a small biscuit cutter and cut some circles, really only the size of $.50 pieces. I placed some JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows into a small microwaveable cup and nuked them for 20 seconds. This was my glue! I just dipped one end into the cup and them places the M&M’s into a flower pattern onto the Rice Krispies Treat.

In our city, our extended family has always lived on the same block, I know! My grandma cooks for us and we all go over and have a big buffet with all the cousins, aunts and uncles. Afterwards, we go into the field next door and hunt for Easter eggs. My generation knows the tricks, always shake them or go for the light ones, they have the money. It usually tends to be a competition between my brother and I, which one of our kids can get the most money since now we’re to ‘old’ to hunt, lol.So for our own little family, I wanted to start a new Easter tradition and Disney has some fun things for all my kids to be satisfied with. For Leila, she wanted FROZEN, what child hasn’t loved that movie lately? Walmart has some of the best selection for Easter this year to fill those baskets for your young ones.
For Siaki, I went with The Avengers theme because he loves Hulk and Iron Man, he always has. When he was a little boy, we bought both boys those giant Hulk gloves to box each other. We still sometimes bring them out because they just need to inflict some pain on one another once in a while.For the F man, we went with the classic Star Wars. Granted, they didn’t have as many things in the store for Star Wars, but he’s always been a huge fan and we can just binge watch those movies for days. He’s always been into those movies and that really what the best thing about Disney is, they are classics and everyone enjoys them. “If you can dream it, you can do it!” – Walt DisneyNow, let me know what your Easter traditions are and what you plan to put into your Easter baskets? I’d love to hear!
