I decided to do a spin off of the tag that Nanci did in the Tag Class a couple of weeks ago. I used one of the cardboard eggs Ray cut out with the laser and decorated it to look kinda like those pretty sugary eggs you see at Easter.
This a fun & easy project you can make and set out each year for Easter. Here is a list of the supplies needed:
Product from Cat's Creations:
Cardboard Laser Cut Egg, Laser Cut Easter Sign, Pink ribbon 12", white ribbon 6"
1 piece of Easter paper. I used the pastel stripe from the Reminisce collection.
Felt cut out of a bunny, Chipboard cut out of the same bunny
Fragments in various colors from Stampendous, Glossy Accents, Diamond Dust
Seedless Preserves Distress Stain, Tim Holtz Memo Pin
Faber Castell Gelato in Purple and a Gray Art Pencil
Product from KinderStampO:
Purple flowers, Purple rhinestone chain, clear rhinestone chain with the round circle pieces, middle size doily, blank pendent.
Cover your egg with the paper you have chosen. Cut the purple rhinestone chain to just one layer and go all the way around the outside of the egg with them. Add Glossy Accents to the egg front in the areas that will show. OK, I just smear around with my finger. Then sprinkle with Diamond Dust for the sugar effect. Set aside to dry.
Color your Easter sign with the purple Gelatto. I used my finger to rub the color into the chipboard. Now go back over the inside of the etched letters with the gray art pencil. Go around the edge with Seedless Preserves Distress Stain for more impact on the sign. Add the clear rhinestones to the cross T so that it stands out on the sign.
Adhere the felt bunny to the chipboard. Using the Tim Holtz Scratcher rough up the felt so the bunny looks fluffy. Add some purple bing for a necklace after you run the pendent through it. Cover the inside of the pendent with glossy accents and carefully place a variety of colors of the new fragments from Stampendous to the Glossy accents. I push down with a pin. Cover the top with Glossy and let it dry. Add a clear rhinestone for an eye. Using some of your leftover ribbon from your "stash" tie a bow for his ears.
Fold the middle sized doily so that it comes to a point at the bottom and overlaps a bit in the front. Add the round larger bling to every other circle of the doily. Place your now fluffy and blinged up bunny in the doily and adhere all to the egg at an angle as shown.
Add the purple flowers as shown. Tie your pink ribbon into a pretty bow and add as shown. Place your Easter sign in the Memo pin and stick it through the flowers at the angle you desire.
You can also add ribbon to the top to hang it or you can do what I did and stand it up in the Easter grass as a table decoration.
Have fun with this one ladies! Let your imagination run wild with it!
Happy Easter everyone,
