Created this Easter box to hold some candy for a friend. Michaels had papercrafting items 50% off which included the WeR boards so I got the WeR Gift Box board. Made this medium box with an 8" x 8" piece of cardstock. Discovered that the cardstock needs to be sturdier than a piece I first tried because when you score it, crease it and assemble the cardstock tears. Also discovered that red tape works better than other double-sided adhesive. Used some double-sided adhesive and let the box sit for awhile and the adhesive did not hold it together well so I added red tape & it is staying together. The instructions to make the gift box was not difficult to follow. I have the WeR Envelope Punch Board and so I was familiar with the process of punching, scoring, creasing.

Used Hero Arts stamp for sentiment "Happy Easter" and stamp/die Egg for Eggs.

Peek Thru Easter Egg Card

Please click here to enter One Stitch At A Time Ch208 Use a Digi. Please click here to see my Happy BEE Day Spring Card.

Created this Easter card inspired by Easter egg sweets that are made of icing that you see at Easter time with an area that you peek thru to see what's inside the egg.

Started out making this simple and ended up changing it along the way; starting over a couple times. Decided to emboss the inside part after stamping so I embossed it with one of my fav Cuttlebug embossing folders, Swiss Dots. Embossed the outside piece with other fav Cttlebug embossing folder, D'Vine Swirl, to resemble frosting. Stamped a Hero Arts sentiment "Happy Easter." Decided to get more creative & add colors to the Chick, Bunny & Flowers; making the Chick yellow, making the Bunny be a Chocolate Bunny and giving the flowers a more realistic look than black.






Supplies List 


ink:   VersaFine Onyx Black
markers: Crayola, PrismaColor, Spectrum Noir  
   - used a variety of these to add color to the Chick, Bunny & Flowers
paper:  cardstock - Kraft purple Zebra striped, purples
Spellbinder: Nest - Nest Classic Ovals, Classic Scalloped Ovals Large
stamp:  Easter 2011 Happy Easter - Chick, Hero Arts - sentiment "Happy Easter"
   studio g - bunny, sentiment "peep! peep!"
Stampin' Up: die - Framelits Labels Collection
