Free Easter Printables {All About Easter}..and a GIVEAWAY!


Today I would like to welcome Kristi from Creative Kristi!  Her blog is a great mixture of DIY, crafts, free printables, cooking...you name it, Kristi does it!  She has even offered a GENEROUS giveaway..keep reading until the end of the post to find out more about that!  Take it away, Kristi:

Hi everyone! I am so excited that Kiki asked me to create something to share with y'all today!
First a little about me: My name is Kristi and I blog over at Creative Kristi. I am mom to two little ones, Little Man who is 3 (and a half-he wanted me to be sure to tell you that) and Miss E who is 10 months. I am married to my Military Man & we live in Maine. I recently started designing blogs & can't think of anything more fun to be doing-I love it!!
Now onto my project:
I am sharing with you some Easter themed printables I made! The entire set can be downloaded in PDF form on my blog today so be sure to click over when you are done reading to get them for yourself!
First up is a cute Easter Brunch 'menu' you just print it off, pop it in an 8x10 frame and write the menu with a dry erase marker!



Next is the matching invite which I left blank for two reasons. One being I love hand written invites & I figured if it's Easter brunch you wouldn't be inviting a whole slew of people so it's too not much work. The second reason being I wanted you to be able to use them as notepaper in case you aren't having an Easter get together.



Finally I have a few DIY decorations:

Bunnies (there is a 'right' & 'left' bunny so you can put them back to back on your garland) and an egg template that you can print out on pretty paper then tape or glue to a piece of twine or ribbon for a easy, cute garland! (I printed some digital paper out then ran it through the printer again to get my egg shape on it)
Here is a picture of my garland:






I'll tell you how I made that center blue egg "3-D"
I printed one copy on cardstock and 3 copies on printer paper (but you could do all cardstock if you'd like) you take your 3 copies and fold them in half length-wise then glue (or tape) them together-one half of the egg glued flat to your 'base' (un-folded cardstock egg) then the other half of that folded egg to the half of the 2nd folded egg until you get back to the base. Here is a close up in case you are a visual learner:



Thanks so much for letting me visit & I hope I see some of you over at Creative Kristi to download your own Easter printables!

Aren't those fun. I am LOVING that Easter Menu idea!  Kristi is SO generous. In addition to her free printables today, she is also offering one of my readers a full blog design ($60 value) with one commercial use image/illustration purchase to be included (She usually has the client pay for all purchased graphics but she'll include one for the giveaway-up to a $20 value).
