Easter projects!

Hi y'all!
I'm back again, only quickly, to share some Easter projects with you. Sorry for the photo quality! I didn't say anything about my milk carton in the photo below -- I'm hoping to have a fabulous project to show you tomorrow!

This is a group photo of all of the 3D projects. I guess the card that we made didn't make it into this photo. You can see a close-up of 2 of the projects in the photo.

The photo on the left is my peppermint patty bunny. I'm having a hard time finding the originally wrapped patties, but my local grocery store was carrying some patties made by Palmer -- they were in pastel wrappers (perfect!), and they tasted really good besides! My Easter class attendees had to do a taste test, and we unanimously decided the the Palmer patties were creamier! Imagine that!

The photo on the right uses the new Petal Cone die and the Easter Blossoms stamp set. I stamped the girl with Versamark ink to give it a tone-on-tone design. The button is one of the Button embosslits -- hey, where did my narrow grosgrain ribbon go?! Oh well, the embossed button is pretty just like that too! I got the pixie stix from my dollar store -- what I don't give away, my kids are squirreling away from me! They love those stix!!

This last photo is the inside of the Easter basket that I made -- I used the Baskets and Blooms XL die with my big shot to cut the basket, but I wanted some room inside for my Robin's Eggs. After cutting out the basket, I cut out 3 strips of paper: (2) 2" x 2 3/4", and (1) 2" x 4". On the shorter strips, I just scored them at 1/2" on each side for the sides of the basket. The longer strip was scored at 1/2" on all 4 sides. I then used Sticky Strip to attach them to the sides of my basket. I'd love to say that the grass was "homemade" but I don't have that kind of time!

Have a wonderful day! I'm headed off to work overnight again tonight, and then tomorrow my mom comes to visit for a few days from upstate NY! Love it! Can't wait to see her!
