I usually enjoy looking at all the Roundups that blog owners put up. It saves me a lot of time when looking for new ideas. I’ve done a few and believe me they are a lot of work so I do appreciate the time and effort people put into them. Today, I thought I’d just round up a few of the Spring and Easter Roundups that are out there. Lots of fun ideas. Some of the ideas may overlap but I tried to find ones that feature a variety of things for you. Enjoy!

Have a creative day and a blessed Easter,
Put on Your Bonnet!
I recently bought a new round die (for my Big Shot) at Michaels that I just had to have. One of those I don’t really need it but it sure would be fun things. It was the QuicKutz Dainty Doily. It’s so cute. Oh the possibilities!
Remember those little 2 ounce clear plastic cups with lids that I crafted with recently for the Mother’s Day Favors on this post.? Well, I’ve been mulling over how I could make little hats with them and when I got this die, it all came together.
Ooops- I missed punching out one of the little holes on the orange doily.
If I waited to take another picture I may never get this up so it’s staying.
I filled the little cups with candy Sixlets, but you could use any kind. Then I turned them upside down and added a little ribbon and embellishments. I used some punch flowers and a punch butterfly. The Little Leaves are Sizzlit die-cuts. They reminded me of having feathers on hats. I used a punched circle (1 3/4 inch) for the top of the hat which I textured with an embossing folder (Square Lattice Textured Impressions from Stampin’ Up!).
To attach the doily piece, I just used one single large glue dot right in the center. I didn’t want them all glued together so much that you couldn’t get to the treat. What’s the fun in that?
If you have other round or scallop dies, they would probably work just as well as the doily one I used. It was approximately 3 1/2 inches in diameter.
