Step 1. Fill your little bucket with your candies.

Step 2. Cut out your bunny ears using an electronic die cutting machine. I used a tall skinny oval shape, and made the white ones slightly larger than the pink ones. Once cut out, ink all the edges.

Step 3. Adhere the pink ovals to the white ovals. Fold one ear down. I used a glue dot to keep the fold down.

Step 4. Hand cut the nose piece and punch a circle for the top of your can. Ink the edges of these with your brown ink as well.

Step 5. Use glue dots to layer your buttons for the eyes.

Mini Easter Basket with EOS Lip Balm

I am sure you have seen these darling “EOS” brand lip balm in the check-out area of the grocery store. Doesn’t the shape and bright colors of the lip balm remind you of Easter eggs? I decided they would make a darling little Easter gift for some co-workers. They were easy to create, and I found a bulk pack of EOS lip balm at my local Costco, which made this inexpensive! I love that.

Lip Balm Easter Baskets Supplies:

1

Step 1: Cut three (3) basket shapes using an electronic cutting machine. I did not resize the shape. I fit all three basket shapes onto one sheet of 12×12 Core Basics Kraft cardstock. I cut the handles of the baskets separately on a half sheet of kraft cardstock. Assemble the baskets using a strong adhesive. (I used my trusty hot glue gun!)

Step 2: Using craft punches, create elements for the flowers on the tags. You will need two flower shapes, two leaves and one circle for each tag.

Step 3: Assemble the tags. Stack two flowers, bend the leaves in the center to add dimension, add the circle punch to the flower centers. Stamp or hand write sentiment on tag. Attach tags to baskets using baker’s twine. Add green paper shred to baskets, and insert EOS lip balm!

Designer Suzanna Lee here today with an Easter project for you.

Using an accordian card die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, I created this fun Easter home decor. Each of the backgrounds is not only a different color but a different cardstock as well. I used some Core Essentials cardstock  and some Core Impressions in various designs. See my supply list for more details.

The oval of each panel is cut using white cardstock and individually decorated using more die cut cardstock and some stamps.

Emboss bits and pieces of the panel for added texture like I did here with the tulip. Then shade it with Gelatos for a hint of ombre color and shading. Scor the outer edge of this panel and sand to frame the letters.

Tuesday Tip: Cute and Quick Easter Gift

March 26, 2013 by

Today’s Tuesday Tip is to use what you got!

Designer Shaunte Wadley has the cutest little Easter Bunny treat for us today. It is a great way to use up some scraps and there is a good possibility that you have all of this already at your finger tips.

So here is a little bit about it from Shaunte herself:

Here is a quick and easy Easter Treat cup using Core’dinations scraps from your stash, and a grocery store cup.
The cup is just a plain white plastic cup.
For the ears, I folded a piece of Pink Core Whitewash in half. I free hand cut the ear, and since the paper was doubled, I had matching ears. I sanded the edges so the pink would come through.
I repeated the same fold and cut technique with a scrap of Pink Spotted Jillian Dot cardstock. I trimmed it slightly smaller to nest inside the Whitewash ear.


For the bunny face, I punched two 1″ circles from Whitewash. One 1/2″ circle from the Spotted.
I trimmed a scrap of white for the teeth, and glued them together as shown.
Add a couple of google eyes, and hot glue all of the elements to your cup.

Easy as can be! Would be great to mass produce- who doesn’t have scraps and plastic cups? Cheap, and pretty darn cute.
