Hi everyone and Happy Spring! It is finally warming up and I am so glad. I love that flowers have started blooming and the trees are starting to turn green. I want to share four projects I created using some of Eileen Hull’s newest diecuts.
With Easter being this Sunday I decided for my first project I would create a mini Easter basket from a sheet of Little Sizzles Mat Board, patterned cardstock and the Cookie Box diecut. I inked the inside, edges and creases of the basket with Broken China Distress Paint before putting it together. I adhered the patterned cardstock to the outside of the basket, added the mini pom pom trim and punched holes on either side and ran a pipe cleaner threw each side of the basket to create a handle.
I used the Brenda Walton’s Medallion diecut-658339 (which is retired) to added a fun twist to the front of the basket along with a vintage little chick sticker and I printed the Happy Easter sentiment from the computer to finish it off. Since I am on a 21 day no sweets or junk food ban I filled my little basket with crafty goodness.
My second project I have had this idea in my head since I first seen the cookie Box die but wasn’t sure it would work. Not all the ideas that swim around in brain translate like I want at times but I am happy to say I made it happen. I turned the Cookie Box Diecut on its side to create some storage for some of my many rolls of washi tape I have. As you can see I glued two halves together by using my hot glue gun and I adhered six of the tabs to the ends/sides and cut the rest off to create the lid.
I painted the edges of the scalloped circles with Mowed Lawn Distressed Paint and covered with patterned cardstock.
I punched two small holes so I could add twine and knob as a closure for the chest.
I added paper flowers…store bought and handmade along with twine, thread, pearl sprays and the paper leaves are cut from the Holiday Greenery Diecut.
I adhered lace on the back of the chest to cover the edges of the cardstock I cut to define the base and the lid.
I glued four small spools to the bottom of the chest and adhered lace around the bottom to create a skirt.
Now it is ready to store some of my washi tape. 🙂
My third and fourth projects I cut two bowls each from the Mixing Bowl Diecut and I also used the 3D Food Jar and Spoon Diecut “pocket” to create an adorable arrangement. I printed these little girls and the other little girl with bowl for the other mixing bowl and then fussy cut out. I purchased these from Eclectic Anthology.
I used the Rose, 3D Diecut (558504) along with the Holiday Greenery Diecut, a few punched flowers, tulle, thread and moss to add finishing touches to the bowl.
This little bowl I kept simply by adding a little moss, paper flowers and leaves and I finished off the outside with lace and flatback pearls.
I have you have enjoyed all of my projects I shared with you today and if you have any questions about any of them please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Friday is awesome and enjoy creating!
