Hi, everyone. Tuesdays will be never be the same for my blog. That’s because I have joined I Brake for Stamps Design Team as of last week. So I will be posting a weekly project with awesome products from the store here as well as projects for our monthly challenge blog here. So with that, my first project is for our Challenge that officially begins tomorrow. Our theme this month is Easter.
I created a cute little mini Easter basket. These make great favors for friends or your children’s friends. My basket is a simple angled box frame. You can download my template here. I used strips of cardstock to make a weave pattern design for the box exterior. For the handle I used an EK Success punch and added some pink grosgrain ribbon. I would suggest using brads to attach your handle for a strong hold if you plan are filling it with Easter goodies. I adhered mine with ScorTape.
I used a Magnolia die cut for the tag and stamped my sweet “Bunny Tail End” image and colored him with Copics. Isn't he adorable? I distressed the edges around my tag with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. Finally, I took the scraps of cardstock I used for my weave paper and ran it through my Fiskars Crimper then shredded it with my Martha Stewart Fringe scissors to make the basket grass.
These are the Copics I used to color my image.
I’m entering this project in Make It Monday – Anything Goes Linky Party.
OK…now I know you’ve been waiting for the most exciting part of this post and that is Candy time. What’s your favorite childhood Easter Holiday memory?
