It is officially Spring now and with the warmer weather comes Easter! I have been busy creating these beauties for my upcoming Easter EGGtravaganza class next Wednesday night.
I tried my hand at punch art and came up with my chick. I think he's ok for my first attempt but think I need to practice a bit with the punches! The gorgeous wee birdhouse ( Can you believe it is made using the latest Milk Carton Big Shot die?!) is a case from Dawn's site. I didn't have all the punches Dawn used so I altered it to suit what I do have. It just think the birdhouse is SO adorable and what a wonderful reminder of what awaits us with Spring. Of course the fact that it holds chocolate morsels is an added bonus!
My third and forth creations (see below) are more traditional in nature but still gorgeous. As I cut the leaves for the birdhouse house I looked at the negative space I had left and it reminded me of a card I had seen here so another case was in order. The photo doesn't do the leaves symbol justice as it is raised on dimensionals and gives a lovely 3D effect. Of course I had to make a wee gift treat holder to go with the card so I cut out two tags from the Big Shot 'Two Tags' die and stuck them together. I decorated the front and enclosed a bag full of (what else?!) Easter eggs. It is such a classy way to give chocolate!
So, if you are wanting to make these yummy projects, sign up for my class...Wednesday 31st March from 7 - 9.30pm. The cost is $20 and all supplies are provided ...even the eggs!
