Easter is rapidly approaching isn't it?
Perfect time to select some fanciful Easter freebies and tutorials to share.
Revisiting some faves can be so much fun.
These pressed sugar pretties are made using the same technique for panoramic sugar eggs you will see down below in this post.
Here is a link that will show you how to press sugar to make panoramic eggs.
You can then use that basic skill to add food coloring to your sugar and press sugar into any sort of mold or tin or tea cup you'd like in order to come up with fun shapes.
It's addicting and oh so fun I tell ya.
Okay so, next let's plunge into some free printable freebies.
Let's begin with these cutie egg wrappers.

I just used everyday printer paper for mine.
But you can use anything you want, such as card stock.
Then just cut them out and stick the bands together on the back with tape.
Easy as pie!
And what a cute treat for egg recipients, don'tcha think?
You can also use them to wrap around plastic eggs.
Or doll them up even extra with paper and glitter as you see below.
These are elfin Easter egg wrappers.

Where I come from you will always see cascarones on Easter.
What are cascarones you ask?
Basically hollowed out and washed/dried egg shells, that you fill with glitter and paper confetti.
That are then decorated.
Traditionally broken on people's heads for fun in Mexico, during Easter.
Here's a style I like to make.
If you would like to make a cone cascaron, which I grew up with, and sparkle it up all pretty, click here for ideas and tips.
And last but not least, we can not forget panoramic sugar eggs.
The tutorial to make these can be found right here.
They are incredibly fulfilling to make.
Mine have kept perfectly for years now.
The peeking inside is really magical.
I highly recommend giving them a whirl.
Like I said at the beginning -
You can use the panoramic egg technique for pressing sugar to make all different types of shapes.
The sky is the limit!
Now hopefully the Easter bunny will stay up long enough to make his rounds.
But I seriously doubt it.
Hope you enjoyed the freebies and tuts.
I sure love sharing with you & hope even one person gets a use out of these treats.
That would make me extra happy.
So we have a week to make all sorts of things!
Time to start feverishly crafting my friends ;-)
It got hot here really early this year, oh no!!
Pumpkin seeds are now running late to be planted.
Must do this in the next couple days, oh my!!
