|filled, and ready to send in the mail|
i saw these mailed plastic easter eggs from giverslog and thought this would be the perfect idea. the only plastic eggs i could find are really quite small (~2 1/2") so it required some thought as to what we could fill them with. the idea is pinned to my easter in autumn board on pinterest.

once they were stuffed full we closed them up, taped around the join and wrote the addresses on with a permanent marker.

|almost ready to send, filled to the brim with lots of inedible trinkets :)|
outcome: i haven't posted them yet so i am intrigued as to what each one will cost! i was amazed at how much we could fit in these little eggs ... i am going with the "its the thought that counts" on this gifting as they really are just little trinkets polly and i collected over the last day! still its a great idea and given most peeps rarely find anything in the mail for them, bar birthdays, i am hoping the fact it turns up by postie will add to this little novelty :)
my thanks goes to giverslog for this great posting idea ... i have used her bottle in the mail idea several times over the last half year and only one of them has ever failed to turn up, so lets hope all the eggs make it safely!
