It's Time for Easter!!!
Happy Leap Day everyone!!! Boy, the year is flying by...Girl's Day is already this Saturday...and next up is Easter. This year I have 2 new cling sets for Easter. Both sets come with an "extra hand" stamp to hold a bunch of Easter goodies...here's the first set:
and the second set:
If you're wondering about the boxes, you can click here to get a pattern for both the carrot box and the jellybean box. They're both pretty simple to make...just cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines. Use double stick tape on the 4 tabs. Here are a few pointers:
First I cut out my pattern...then I trace the outlines of the pattern with a pencil onto my card stock, as shown above. Before moving the pattern, I take a craft knife and cut through both the pattern and the paper at the 4 highlighted areas.
Then, to mark the horizontal fold lines...I line up the pattern with the traced outlines...then I place a ruler along the dotted lines of the pattern and use a pencil to continue that line across the other pieces.
Cut the carrot top out of a contrasting paper and glue to the carrot. The picture above shows you how the inside of the box looks. Just enough to fit a few small candies, or other tiny gifts.
Hope to be back with one more Girl's Day project...
