My friend and I have decided to exchange Easter baskets. I would like to create a few of the goodies I put in it. Does anyone have some ideas for some cute Easter crafts? Or even some small cute crafty creations that everyone needs?

stuffed bunnies!  bunnies are ALWAYS great.  and something with eggs... if you know how to do decoupage-collage, you could empty an eggshell after coating with the decou/coll.  that always looks pretty cool.
homemade candy is good- fudge, marshmallows...etc...
i hope that helped (somewhat)

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

If your friend sews..you could make like a really cute feld egg pin holder! (Im just in need of one so maybe thats why I thought of that..)

Stuffed animals are good, too. Maybe a stuffed duck or a flower.. something not the typical bunny.

also, you could make her some kind of cozy? you could do a tampon cozy, maybe a phone or mp3 player cozy, something like that.

also, theres lots of tutorials for wallets or coin purses! those are always good. maybe you could make one thats beaded.

cant go wrong with candy! PEEPS! peeps are traditional.

maybe some sort of journal that is eastery with flowers and springy?

i hope i helped <3 goodluck.

This is really easy but when I worked at JCPenny's in college we would make bunnies out of washcloths. You just roll the washcloth up, fold the roll in half and then bend the two outside edgesin half again over the top. Tie a ribbon around the whole thing and the end will stick up like bunny ears. You could use anything you think you friends need socks, dishtowels, to fill in your baskets.

i would say, make something really small and cute to clasp the handle. take something she really likes, make something that deals with it, and maybe use sticky velcro to stick it to the handle? i dont know, my mom used to always do this.

i took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart. i am. i am. i am.

i do personal swaps!

How about making your own chocolates?  For just about every holiday I get out one of my candy molds, paint them with colored chocolate then fill it with either milk chocolate or white chocolate and viola!  If the mold is deep enough you can fill it with a thin shell after painting the details, then once that hardens fill it with caramel or some other filling, then top it off with more chocolate.  My mom absolutely loves those and they're ridiculously easy especially if you're not painting any details.

If it's something you can exchange locally you can make filling with whipped cream instead of caramel too.  I took some Cappucino Coolers mix, mixed it with whipped cream and instant coffee candy!  They need to be refridgerated though, so sending them through the mail wouldn't work.
