Well what a lovely weekend I've had! The weather's been gorgeous so I've been out and about quite a bit, although I still managed to find a bit of time (in between cleaning and ironing!) to have fun in my crafty corner!
For once, I'm trying to be well organised! I'm off on holiday next Sunday for a week so I need to sort out some Easter treats for my nieces and nephews (I've six in total and one on the way soon!) As holidays are becoming ever more expensive for my ever expanding family I thought I'd try to make some treat holders and split a HUGE bag of Mini-Eggs (helping myself to a few along the way - yum!).
These are for the boys:And these are for the girls:
I think they're kinda cute and they weren't too demanding to make. I made one box to begin with and then started a construction line for the others; I confess that after the 3rd box I began to wish I hadn't decided to add quite so much detail with a white gel pen but now I've finished them, I'm glad I did!
Here's a side view of each box. You can probably tell I decoupaged the image (a pea dressed as a rabbit!) to make him stand out a bit more. I hope you understand the sentiment - my bf was scratching his head for ages with this one LOL!
Card: Doodlebug Bazzill (Various Colours!)
Stamps: Penny Black - Concentrics, Penny Black - Ha pea Easter
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (Swiss Dots), Nestabilities (Scalloped Rectangle & Classic Oval), White Gel Pen, Promarkers, Crop-a-dile 2, Jumbo Eyelets, Ribbon (hoarded from various places LOL!), Cellobags
Now I need to make a birthday card for my Sis-in-law before I go on my travels - can I really be this organised?!? Knowing me I'll remember to do all of this then go and forget my passport LOL!
Thanks for stopping by!
