Husband's Easter "Basket"

I'm back! I have been crazy busy --but I also took tons of pic's for my blog!

I'll start with my husband's Easter "basket"---he isn't into a bunch of candy, and I knew he wouldn't use a basket for anything after Easter, so when I spotted this Starbucks mug at the thrift store-I knew it'd work perfectly as a "basket".

I liked the "look" of this mug and it was wide enough to fit little things inside.

I had green, wood excelsior in my stash of craft supplies,

and I made a little nest in the mug.

I bought a coffee card and two Cd's for his gift.

I already had clear bags on hand , so I put the mug inside a bag

and made an Easter tag to tie on the outside.

Then I put the coffee card in the mug, plus a chocolate bunny and a little chick.

It worked out great.

Close up of tag-I inked the edges to shade it a bit.

Few more pics...

Oh-also put in a Cadbury egg.
