A LITTLE EASTER DRAB TO FAB

I wanted to get a little something, to give the girls in my Girl Scout troop, for Easter.  Not much.  Just a little something to let them know I was thinking about them.

I have 10 girls and so I have find things that are super cheap or it can start to add up to a lot of money by the end of the year.

I headed out to the Dollar Tree.  I found these cute little chocolate bunnies.  They are sold chocolate.  YUM! 

I knew right away what I was going to do with them to make them look a little less "Dollar Tree" looking.

I had some clear bags at home and also some little purple flowers and ribbon. 

So, I took the bunnies out of the boxes, put them in the bags, added some pretty pastel M&M's that were on sale at Rite Aid.  I got two bags for the price of one.  Gotta love a sale!

The M&M's added a little more color...and chocolate.  I wanted the bunny to be the star of the gift so I put most of the M&M's in back of the bunny.  That way, his carrots were still able to be seen.
I love the little flowers and think they add a little pop of color and what little girl doesn't love flowers?

So, for just a little bit over $1.00 each, I have my Easter presents for my girls.  I think they look cute and no one would know these were purchased from The Dollar Tree. 

I really like taking things out of their original package and putting it in a cello bag with ribbon and flowers.  It always makes the gift look a little nicer and it costs only pennies to do.
