A Carrot Treat Box

Today I have a treat box in the shape of a carrot - the template is from My Scrap Chick which I printed and then traced onto paper.  I cut each of the pieces out and assembled them with the help of my glue gun.

The template comes with guides for the patterned papers too, so I traced them out and added them.  I chose some pastel Easter papers to the solid orange cardstock.  The leaves were then cut out, and I doodled around the borders of them and added them to the top of the box.  I then adhered some shredded paper for decoration, some eggs and a sparkly pink bunny.

This is a great sized box, it fits so many treats inside!  It has a bottom and a lid and looks great on a decorated table.

Look at all those treats!  You could fit choccy eggs, shaped chocolates, lollies and even a bag of fruit in there!  The box is tall enough to fit pencils and stationery, post-its, stickers - the ideas are endless!

An Easter Pinata

I love gift giving and this is a really fun way to give a present - it's like a present inside of a present!  The outside looks cute enough on its own and then you find the treats inside!!

This totally cute Pinata box can be found at My Scrap Chick.  All I had to do was print out the template and then cut out the pieces.

I added the exterior decorations, ribbon and eye for fun, and to give it a real pinata look.

Here's the box when it's closed - it has ruffles on the top and purple box legs.

When you open the box you find all the treats! I got these choccies at Aldi.

Bunnies & Chicks

I discovered the cutest clip-arts ever at My Scrap Chick! They are absolutely gorgeous, full of colour and print beautifully in any size that you need.

I printed them on card and carefully cut each of them out.  I glossed the chick's beaks and the bunny's noses.  I then used some glitter fluff on the grasses in each picture.

Each clip art pack comes with 6 images, the Easter Chicks are so cute with their eggs and poses, the Easter Bunnies have baskets and umbrellas too.

I created my card out of pastel cardstock, layered more pastels and then some Easter themed patterned paper.  This card is fabulous for using scraps.

I added doodled borders to each of the matts before adhering the clip art, then added some butterfly and carrot stickers.

I love how this card sits and displays all of the pictures. The My Scrap Chick pictures are the icing on the cake!  Oh and I nearly forgot - I added some wee pom poms to 2 of the bunnies and dotted some bling around too.

Peeps for my peeps!

I made the most wonderful discovery today while shopping at Big W - they have Peeps!!  When I first discovered Peeps my friends in the US very kindly sent me some so that my girls could try them.  I just think that they are super cute, and I just love anything that is a bunny.

The Peeps I found were small yellow ones, and the large white ones that you can see to the left.  I then found some awesome tags and a gift idea for Easter.

You can find the tags {here} so that you can print some off yourself and surprise someone with a home-made gift.

Along with the Peeps, you'll need some colourful paper straws, plastic gift bags and ribbon or twine.

All I did was put a bunny in a cello bag, then insert a straw through the middle of them (it's easier to do it with the bunny in the bag, that way you don't get sugar all over you).  I then cut a piece of contrasting ribbon and tied the bag shut around the straw.  On the last tieing of the ribbon I added the tag.  And you're done! A super easy gift that looks great.

I imported the picture of the tags into Word, resized to the size I wanted and printed.

They didn't stay wrapped for long!

Imagine a whole basket full of peeps! Happy Easter!

A little mermaid

Having 2 girls, I always have little mermaids in my house - Sophia actually has a blue tail that she wears swimming!

I found this gorgeous mermaid at Imagine That Digi Stamp. She comes as coloured and outlined images with several sentiments.

I coloured her up with my Copics and then added some pretty sea themed sprinkles, gloss and a sparkly heat embossed tail.  I then layered the image with sea themed papers and ribbon.  I tucked in some brads, silver cord and fine wrinkled ribbon.

There she is, swimming on by in all her sparkly glory.  I doodled the border around the image to help it stand out a little better.  

I curled the edges of the starfish's legs to add dimension to the image.
