Photo Craft Make 'N Take

Just popping in to share the make 'n take we did at Photo Craft today. I meant to post it earlier, but we ended up going to see the Pink Panther 2 (Steve Martin is so silly!!). Anyway, I'll be featuring my new "Easter Maddy" stamp in this project. Here's the how-to's:



You'll need 2 circles punched with a Marvy (blue) scalloped circle punch (I punched out 2 rectangle slots on one of the circles using a Fiskars punch), 1 strip of cardstock (7" long and a little less than 1/4" wide...this will be the handle of the basket and must fit through the rectangle slot), 1 stamped, colored and cut image (be sure to cut a little tab under your stamped image) and a mini cupcake cup (I got mine from Ben Franklin, but also saw it at GBC).



I used cardstock with a different color on each side to help explain things better. The dark pink is the side that will be showing. Slide each end of the handle through the 2 rectangular slots...bend the handle under ( to the light pink side) and hold in place with scotch tape. Glue the two circles, light pink sides together (to cover up the taped handles).

Bend back the tab on the bottom of the stamped image and use double stick tape to tape it down on the scalloped circle. Use double stick tape on the bottom of the cupcake cup and stick it right behind your stamped image as shown below:



You can also tie a ribbon on the handle. I don't know why the basket looks so crooked in this picture, but it really sits flat. Fill your cupcake cup with some easter grass and chocolate eggs (or jellybeans). I wanted to tie a tag on the basket with an easter greeting...but just couldn't get it to look right since the basket is so tiny. So instead I stamped the greeting right on a cellophane bag with StazOn white ink:



I got this cellophane bag at GBC - it's a 2" x 1-1/4" x 7-1/2" bag. I also used stamp #5030 (Scattered Flowers) to add a "springy" look. I put the basket in the bag...folded the top down...punched 2 more rectangle slots and finished it off with a ribbon. And here's the finished product:


Now for the giveaway...If you would like to win the stamps shown below, leave me a comment by midnight on Tuesday, February 24 (Hawaii time) and tell me what your favorite Easter candy is. Mine is Robin's Eggs!! Good luck to all...and thanks to everyone who came out to the make 'n take today!!!

My favorite candy? That's a hard one... it's a toss up between good ol' Hershey chocolate eggs and those malted milk eggs...are they Whoppers?...the ones that make your mouth all blue and white!

Cadbury mini eggs for me. I love em, you can just eat it straight out of the bag or crush em to bake in cookies. Or in this case put them in the basket you just shared. I love the idea of stamping the clear cellophane bags.

Thanks for the inspiration and the chance to win.
