Vintage Easter Cut-Outs!

 Hi Friends! A few years ago I found these fantastic Easter Cut-Outs  published by "Golden Books". They were originally printed in 1937, but they republished them in 2010.

 They couldn't be any sweeter!
So sweet in fact that I haven't been able to cut them!

 I thought it might be something that my blogging buddies would be interested in, so I've tracked some down on EBAY FOR YOU! Just in case you're interested, it looks like this seller lists them for $5.99 each plus $3 shipping.

I should have shown you more pics I guess. Because you can also make 6 of the cutest little Easter Nut/Candy cups. And there are lamb, duck, and bunny pull-carts to create. Plus the back has this other cart you make and add some of the cut-outs to. Let me know if you get some, and how they turn out!

 In other Eastery news, this huge die-cut chick showed up in the mail today. She was on Etsy, and I just couldn't resist her!

And last night I made paper-mache eggs! The scraps and egg containers are German, and I bought them through D.Blumchen & Co. Here's the link to their Easter shop, but if you haven't visited their website before, you'll want to see the whole thing!
*** BooHoo! They're now SOLD OUT of all egg containers, and won't be getting more! Still take a look at their scraps and other things though!

OK Friends- Hope you all have something fun planned for the weekend!
I believe I'll be finishing up with Easter crafts and then I'll begin packing to move!   Erica :)


  1. I had gone looking for the egg containers about a week ago and they were out then too. I ended up ordering some plain unopening ones from hobbylobby. I figured I could still decorate them, they just wont open....
    maybe tomorrow I'll have some crafty time.. today I must clean!
    have a great weekend

  2. Love your Easter post - everything is just so pretty!

  3. The Easter cut-out book is too cute to use! I agree I would use it as a did a great job on your paper mache eggs!


  4. Don't you always find the best stuff! So many darling Easter treasures. The girls and I will be sorting through my Easter decorations this weekend. Josie and I are starting with the keystone dollhouse first.

  10. Oh Erica, I don't think I could cut them out either! I haven't come across very many vintage Easter items in awhile. Maybe I can talk the hubby into going to the flea market this weekend to scout for some. Good luck on packing!

  11. OMG!!! You are the best! I went and bought a book! Really reasonable...:) Thank you Erica!!!!
