Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone!  Setting the scene for a lovely Easter Sunday.  How my easter eggs, chics and bunnies made it to today I'll never know!  It took a great deal of steely resolve to resist wolfing them down I can tell you, especially since I have zero will power!

Remember my video on these rectangular card in a box last Wednesday?  If not you can see it here. I kept one back to post for today. Here are the products I used for this particular one.  I stamped and used the extra large oval punch to punch and layer the images and the fringe scissors for the grass.  It's been so long since I used this Positively Chevron background stamp and I've fallen in love with it again.

Here are the materials I used for the above.  Click on the bottom corner of each picture for product details - it links directly to my online store.

It doesn't stop there, I have another bonus project featured in this post.

This hexagonal box contains a little surprise.  To keep it all closed, I created a  belly band which was constructed out of a 2" strip of Afternoon Picnic DSP.  To hide the join in the paper, I created a double layer of  scalloped circles in coordinating cardstock as a label and gathered half a doily to pretty it up.

Are you ready for the surprise?  Undo the belly band and it opens up into a series of 6 triangular boxes holding a single easter egg in each.  I really enjoyed making these.  After two or 3 attempts using copy paper and fine tuning the design,  I finally cracked it before doing the real thing on cardstock.  Hope you like it!

Pop back tomorrow to see how I made those easter egg cups.

Enjoy your easter weekend.
