I love how simple it was to make and I will definitely make some similar ones for other holidays. I cut the eggs with my cricut, cut two of each color, fold the top one in half so it stands out. To attach the top egg to the bottom egg I used a straight stitch then just used sticky tape to attach them to the actual banner. If you stitch them directly to the banner, you will have strings, but if you stitch the eggs only you can tuck the strings behind the egg. The banners are made from a book page and they are so thin that I just stacked them and cut all 6 by hand at the same time. To attach the pages to the string, I just folded over the top at about 1/2 inch and taped the very edge (so they make a loop that will still slide along the twine). I wanted my candles to match so I wrapped them with paper as well (they are flameless) and added a flower from the cake basics cartridge.
These photos were taken when my boys were almost 3 (I wrote 2007, but it was really 2006, oops..I’ll have to find a way to fix that). It was their first time dying eggs and they of course LOVED it. I love the little hand in the glass…who needs spoons, right? The paper is from DCWV Sweet stack, the blue is SU, the bunny is SU stamped/embossed and hand cut, the word EGGS is from the Kitchen cart and the actual eggs are part of a freebie 6 pack for SCAL2. If you’re doing the eggs, some of the designs are intricate, so I would keep them at 1.5 inch or bigger, do blackout for a base. I was going to post a picture of the six pack, but something is up with blogger and it won’t let me do what I need to do….so you’ll just have to download it to see it.
Here are some Easter baskets that I did over the weekend. The file contains 4 pages:
Scalloped basket (george and Storybook)
Plain basket (george only)
Plain basket accents ( peices for going over the handle and flaps)
Handle (george, fits both baskets) Here are some Easter baskets that I did over the weekend. The file contains 4 pages: Scalloped basket (george and Storybook) Plain basket (george only) Plain basket accents ( peices for going over the handle and flaps) Handle (george, fits both baskets)For mine I used a double-sided paper for the scalloped basket – which is by far the easier. For the blue basket, I cut it in white then just cut squares for the sides (2.5 x 3 inches) and stamped on the white. They are fairly quick and simple, but a good size for a few goodies.
