"Admit One Bunny" gift bag:

This is really easy to make, just a couple of cuts and some scoring and you've created a bag.  Here's how to make it.
For the main bag:  Cut pattern paper 10 1/4 x 2 3/4 and score one end at 4 1/2 inches, then flip paper and score at the other end 4 1/2 inches, then fold and crease.
For the sides of the bag:  Cut 2 strips of pattern paper at 2 1/4 x 5 inches, then score 1/2 inch down both sides lengthways, and then 1/2 inch in on one end.
For the handle: Cut a strip of pattern paper 1 1/4 x 9, (I cut 2 strips and machine stitched one on top of the other). 
To assemble:  Fit the side pieces to the main piece, (the end where you scored in 1/2 inch will lay at the bottom), then using hot glue run a bead of glue down the scored edges and adhere the sides of the bag to the main bag.  That's it!  Easy as pie!
For the handle, simply hot glue the ends about an inch into the bag on both sides.  
To decorate:  Add some misc fringe to the top of the bag, decorate the front with "ticket" sticker, then punch out a bunny from pattern paper and adhere to the front using 3D glue dots, then adhere a sentiment sticker to the bottom.

"This way to egg hunt" Easter card:

Card measures a standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Cut cardstock to measure the size stated, score, fold and set aside.
From pattern paper: cut one dark brown piece 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, another piece of pattern paper 4 x 5 1/4, then a third piece of pattern paper 3 3/4 x 5, machine stitch all the layers together.  
Machine stitch a piece of quilting batting to the center of your card. 
Adhere arrow sticker to a strip of pattern paper, cutting the ends to resemble the back of an arrow and adhere to card using hot glue.
Punch bunny from pattern paper and adhere to a larger punched circle and adhere to arrow using 3D glue dots
Finally adhere a sentiment sticker to the bottom.
