Hi Everyone, it's JULIE here today and I am sharing with you some Easter Inspiration using our fab new Cupcake die.
These cute little baskets which measure approx 3" diameter by 4" height are easy to make and once I worked out all the measurements it didn't take long to make the second one. So let me show you how to make them.
I started by cutting my Cupcake Wrapper from cardstock and added a double layer of grass to the base. To get the grass strip to curve around your cupcake die, layer on sections measuring about 2 inches in length, offsetting the grass on each layer.
For my base I used the 2 largest dies in the Circle Classic set. You will see in this photo I cut my die out and then drew around the outer part of my smaller die and fussy cut out some notches.
My Cupcake Wrapper I added a little bit of glue to the die cut join for added strength for the weight of my chocolate eggs and formed the shape of my cupcake. I then bent all my notches up on my circle and added a little glue to each one, pushing my circle down into my cupcake to form the base of my basket, pressing all the notches onto my cupcake wrapper.
This makes it all lovely and neat and the grass disguises the notches on the inside.
Next I added on my handle with some brads, you will notice I have the pretty side of my Brad to the inside of my basket as I hid the closure with a flower on the outside.
Now the fun bit of adding all my Easter Chicks, sweet Bunny and flowers.
I disguised my join on the cupcake wrapper be carefully placing a Chick or Bunny over the join.
I finished off my baskets with a pretty bow and some Chocolate Mini Eggs which had been gathered inside a Cello bag that we normally place our cards into. I tied with some Easter ribbon and a die cut Sweetheart Candy.
