Good Morning Fellow Stampers :)
Happy Monday! We're kicking off the first full week of April, and the April showers (in hopes of May flowers) are definitely make the rounds around here. Damp and cold . . . that's the story at the moment. But I'm watching the grass turn green and the buds appear in a soft green mist on the tree branches right before my eyes. Pretty cool :-)
It's time for this week's Paper Players [PP338] challenge, and how fun, that we have an "Easter Bunny" theme this week ;-) LOL So I decided it was time to play with another Easter basket . . . if you were visiting last week, you saw my cute little mini Easter Basket favor - HERE - and how much fun that was to create. Today I played with another style of Easter Basket, a little bit larger, and just as fun!
This cute basket is created with our new Window Box Thinlits Die.
You just leave the "lid" off -- and wah lahh!! How perfect is that??
Don't worry -- I'll do a video tutorial on this for you real soon!! (not this week though, sorry!)
Here's a pic from one angle on the back side . . .
I brought in the Basket Bunch Bundle to finish of this adorable basket.
I'm really enjoying that set!
The grass is cut from the luscious glimmer paper from Sale-A-Bration - I hope you were able to get some of this before it was gone!
I had a lot of fun coloring, stamping, die cutting all these cute little critters, eggs, and carrots :-)
A pic from the other backside angle . . .
each side of the hexagon-shaped box has a slightly different "scene", so that they aren't all the same.
Another close-up pic from the front angle.
I created the label using a die from the Stylish Stems Framelits dies.
So I really brought 3 different die sets into play to create this cute project.
I haven't been down the candy aisle just yet to purchase my Easter candy for this year. Guess I'll have to do that by this weekend . . . I have little baskets to start filling ;-) I really think this cute little basket is going to be perfect for Hershey Chocolate eggs (you know, the little foil-wrapped ones that you suck on in your mouth until they all melt away -- LOL).
Update to Today's Post: Here is Stampin' Up!'s video on how to assemble the Window Box Thinlits -- they're easy and fun! Don't miss out :-)
I will do a tutorial on the "revised" box to use as an Easter Basket soon :-)
Have a wonderful day everyone! We'll be back tomorrow to start chatting about what all is coming in April :-)
Until Next Time . . .
