HAPPY EASTER

The Easter Bunny is yet to visit our place.  I think the Easter Bunny is waiting for all the kids to have their breakfast and have a shower before jumping the fence into our backyard.   I keep reminding the kids that the Easter Bunny isn’t going to visit if they keep checking outside.  :-)    While we wait for the Easter Bunny- I thought I would take a quick moment to share a couple of Easter projects.

The  first is an Easter card

The Easter eggs on the front have been simply punched out of patterned paper using the wide oval punch I think that adding a bow of pretty in pink taffeta ribbon adds a special touch.  I wanted it to look as though the Easter eggs were nestled in the garden and wanted to stamp a background that reflected that.  I used the two images from the “Thoughts and prayers” stamp set.  The greenery you see the eggs sitting on is actually the tree stamped upside down.  I have applied a very small amount of dazzling diamonds to the centre of each of the flowers at the top- it is hard to make it out in the photo but I think it adds a little special something to the card.

The second project is a milk carton containing mini easter eggs.

The milk carton base is the lovely “Elegant Eggplant” colour. 

I started with a piece of A4 cardstock and trimmed it to 24cm x 21cm (NB- sketches not to scale)

I then added score lines so that I could easily fold and assemble the box.  I scored so that there was a 2cm tab on the top and the side.  I then scored at intervals so that each side of the carton was 5.5cm.  To match the dimensions of the sides I also scored the bottom so that it was 5.5cm.  The other measurements are shown in the image below

I then trimmed of the rectangle on the bottom left hand side as I find this a nuisance when assembling the box.  I then trimmed along the bottom flaps using my paper snips (indicated with blue dotted line in the image below)  Using a ruler and a bone folder I then added score lines on the sections shown in green

It is simply a matter of assembling the box using sticky strip and decorating as desired.  I hope you found these measurements useful.  

I hope my lovely blog readers enjoy a lovely Easter today.  I’m hopping off to go and spend time with my family.
