♥ Make Your Own Easter Grass using Cardstock

I know sharing this project idea is a little late (well really late) because Easter is tomorrow but I wanted to have it here so that my readers or newcomers may find it in the future.

When I put a goodie bag together for a sweet little girl I realized I didn’t have any easter grass on hand.  I searched through my stuff and nope, notta, omgoodness what was I going to stuff in this bag to use as a filler?  Then I remembered an idea that Angie at My Chic ‘n Scratch shared about using thin strips of cardstock to create a filler effect. I love the texture and whimsical look.

It was very simple to make and took just a few minutes.  You can make as much or as little as you’d like.  Just use more cardstock to make strips.  Thin strips work the best as they are easier to crumple and stay.  You could also dampen with a little water by spraying the crumbled pieces before you places them in bag.
