Welcome! I started this blog because I love to craft. I dabble with scrap booking, and card making. I love bending, folding and tweaking paper. I try other crafts, too. I hope to share some projects with you.

Easter Basket Scrap Book Page

   Easter is coming fast. I can hardly believe that it's that time of year already. I can't help but want to show you my two favorite little bunnies, all dressed for the occasion.


    I started with scrap book paper that looked a lot like a watercolor of Easter eggs in the grass. I covered each egg with Glossy Accents. Then believe it or not, I carefully glued paper Easter grass over each painted blade of grass on the paper. I then made the Easter basket by weaving wired ribbon. The handle was made by twisting the ribbon. I used a photo editing program to re-size the photo of my little bunnies. I used the same photo program to re-size the little bunnies with the eggs. I then cut them out with my Silhouette.  I used Glossy Accents on the little rabbits. I tucked the photo of my little fur kids into the basket and surrounded them with Easter grass, and then tucked the little bunnies in the basket with them. I decorated the one side of the basket and up the handle with foam flowers. I tied three colors of ribbon together in a bow on the handle.


   On the companion page I used the same scrap book paper, and once again used Glossy Accents on the eggs, and glued Easter grass over each blade of grass. I used a photo editing program to super size the bunny on the egg to use as a frame. The frame and more little bunnies with eggs were cut out on my Silhouette. I flocked the bunny, added google eyes, and a foam nose. The pink egg is trimmed with sheer ribbon with little pink hearts on. The blue egg is trimmed with white felt trim.  I cut a yellow egg, and trimmed it with rick-rack. Happy Easter is spelled out with plastic lettering. I added matching ribbons and contrasting foam flowers. The little bunnies with eggs were the finishing touches. Happy Easter!

Hope That You'll Visit Again Soon,
Kathy
