ribbon easter egg

this cute little craft is from el hada de papel via the crafty crow. i only had pink, white & green yarn around and since the boy is strongly opposed to being near/using/touching/looking at anything pink i didn't think green & white would make for a very fun easter egg. so the kids chose some ribbon from my enormous stash and made these cute little keepsakes. 

it's a little blurry, but they were very proud :)
