Easter Eggs

Hello and welcome back.
I finally received my Easter dies!  Unfortunately I have been sick this last week and it was a bit of a rush to get my post ready.  So please bare with me while I get thru this bout of sickness.


I thought I would make something different this week.  I used some old packaging plastic in the shape of a cylinder and popped an egg into the middle.  On the outside I tied a bow (that has little chicks on it) and then began to cut out and stick down my dies.  


Firstly, for the large egg, I cut out the Spring Basket and used one of the Lace Egg dies in the centre.  I then used the Bunny and Chick Border to run along the bottom of the cylinder.  For the tag I used Nesting Eggs with the bunny from the Spring Basket and popped him in the middle.


For the smaller project, I used another plastic cylinder and filled it up with small Easter eggs.  I then used the Lace Egg die again and cut four eggs out and placing them all around the cylinder.  Topping off with a bow (this one had bunny faces on it!) I also made a tag.  This was using the Nesting Eggs again and also the bunny that came with the set.

Dies used:

I hope you like my projects and again, I am sorry that I only had a short time in which to bring you this post.  Please look out for the weekly challenge, on again at the Cheery Lynn Designs blog.

Till next time Celeste

  4. Cute idea for Easter favors. I may make some of these to give out to may family members when they come over for Easter dinner. But they still have to participate in the Easter egg hunt. LOL!
    It's all adults at our place but I like to show off my spring flowers so I do an Easter egg hunt anyway and I hide one grand prize of movie tickets. Hey, I can hide the grand prize in one of these cute jars! Great idea Celeste!
