Hi all! I look after 3 kids, besides my own, after school and usually give them some kind of handmade treat on holidays and special occasions. This Easter is no exception. I decided to make them each an Easter treat bag. I will also be using it to play along with My Time Made Easy’s Pretty Palette Challenge this week. The colours this time around are pink, celery and blue.
I started off by cutting the scalloped topper on the Cricut with my CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge and then stamped around the edge with a small flower stamp in Lilac Mist. I cut a smaller scallop in the celery green paper and layered it on top. The two little bunnies are from the My Peeps stamp set. They were just stamped and cut out. I placed them inside an egg shell bottom to make it look like they just hatched and then added a bow.
After creating the Happy Easter banner in pink and blue and attaching all the pieces, I felt it needed a little something more. So I got out a little butterfly stamp I had and coloured it with the three challenge colours using a blender pen. I added two small rhinestones on the body and stamped the blue butterfly trail under the sentiment. It’s not an overly fancy topper but I didn’t want it to get too involved because I have to make five of them before Friday!
Hope this inspires you to create an Easter treat for your peeps. Happy crafting!
