Easter Treats - Tuesday 31st March 2015

Hello Friends,

 A scheduled post today as it's back to work, but that's okay, lots going on there at the moment and a long weekend is coming up for all of us!

I'd like to offer a big welcome to my latest follower Kathy Schweinfurth - many thanks for choosing to join with my crafty journey Kathy...Kathy has her own blog with some gorgeous designs if you'd like to check her out:

Today I would like to share a few more Easter treat bags and boxes I have made for gifts....

For the first one, I simply used a cello bag. I cut some thin strips of yellow paper for filling inside and used a die cut from Spellbinders Labels 17, folded in half lengthways.

I made the flower from Carnation Creations and stamped the greeting on some card left over from the stencilled layers on the gift bags we made at the last craft class. The House Mouse was stamped and coloured  and fussy cut. I made the grass myself before getting a die for my birthday!

Next is a chocolate of my favourite things to make: To make these I use a template from one of those boxes you can get chocolate bars in now and cut it out using this polka dot card from stash.

I stamped the House House and coloured with Promarkers, then wrapped with lilac web/net and tied with ribbon. To finish I added little roses made using Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms.

Finally I made this box using a carton template by Stamps Away. I cut it our and also cut and aperture  in one side using a Spellbinders deckle edge oval die and then backed it with acetate.

I stamped Monica the mouse and die cut a label, using Labels 17. I made the flower on top, again using Carnation Creations cut in tissue paper.

That's it for today, thank you for stopping by...see you tomorrow!

Love and Hugs
Carole X
