Guess what the Easter Bunny left
Happy Easter to each and every one of you. Hope you are having a lovely long weekend with your family and friends. I will be seeing my girls and grandchildren later today to give them their Easter gifts.
I know they get lots of chocolate from the Easter Bunny and other family members but it is Easter, and you do need chocolate, right? Anyway I used the Berry Basket Die to create my baskets, after seeing something similar on Pinterest. I used the Kraft Cardstock that is now available in the catalogue and boy are they fantastic. 12 x12″ and quite heavy, so perfect for a basket that has to carry a little weight. I stamped the Woodgrain Background onto the basket pieces using Crumb Cake ink before assembling. While they look complicated, they are really quite easy to put together. The bows are made using the Bow Builder Punch and different coloured paper – Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise and one has been made using paper from the Moonlight DSP Stack. I used my Fringe Scissors to cut up some of the brown paper Stampin’ Up! supplies me with to put into the bottom of my baskets. Then the fun part, you know when children are involved everything as to be perfectly even, so, you can’t just throw a handful of eggs into the basket, each one has to be counted, so no-one gets more (or less) than anyone else!
If you haven’t used the Berry Basket Die, I hope this inspires you to give it a try. They really are super easy to put together and surprisingly large.
Once again, Happy Easter, and, if you are on the road travelling, please be careful.
Bye for now,
