Spring has sprung……

well….the calendar says so. Here in Denmark it still cold but the sun is winning more and more hours as it’s climbing higher up in the sky and soon it’s time for coffee outdoors while the kids (that includes the Dad) are playing soccer on the lawn. Spring also means Easter and the recent years I havn’t gotten around to decorating for Easter. This year will be different and right now I’m totally in a Spring/Easter mood. So I made some projects to use for decoration and small hostess gifts.

First of is a rather large sign that I made from this weeks freebie from Treasurebox Designs.

I enlarged it to 8″ x 11,5″ (approx.: 206 mm. x 294 mm.) From here on it’s all about choosing colors and gluing it together which is pretty easy. I used a Doodlebug gem as flower center and the little bee is part of a file from Miss Kate Cuttables. The paper is from Doodlebugs collection Springtime.

Next is the cute 3D Bunny from SVGCuts kit Bunny Hop SVG Kit:

This handsome fellow is a gift box (the heads lifts off) and you can fill it with A LOT of Easter candies or leave it empty as decor. It’s very easy to assemble and measures 7″ wide, 9″ high and 5″ deep (Approx.: 178 mm. x 229 mm. x 127 mm.) Again I used Doodlebug paper for his tummy and I embossed the pink paper with the Swiss Dot Embossing folder from Cuttlebug. I used two black jewels as his eyes and pop dotted his feet. Isn’t he adorable???

From the same SVGCuts kit I made the Egg-Shaped Box:

The paper is also Springtime from Doodlebug Design and the flower is several different Prima flowers I had laying around. I used a small resin flower as flower center and pop dotted a small tag from the Doodlebug Collection. The cute box measures:  4.2″ wide, 2″ high and 5.6″ deep. (Approx.: 107 mm. x 51 mm. x 142 mm.)

The next box I found in the Silhouette Online Store and is designed by Nilmara Quintela:

This cutie is very very easy to assemble once you’ve cut it out and chosen your color scheme. I went with more Doodlebug paper (Duhhh!) This box is designed to hold two Ferreo Rocher candies, but the supermarket was fresh out of them so I picked some Toffifee candies instead and sized down the holes in the holder. I tied it shut with some pretty ribbon I had in my stash. The box measures: 4.72″ long, 2.75″ wide and 1.38″ deep. (Approx.: 120 mm. x 70 mm. x 35 mm.) Now who doesn’t want one of these as a gift???

Finally I made another little candy box, also designed by Nilmara Quintela and bought in the Online Store. Its called Mini Eggs Box:

Needless to say I used Doodlebug Paper for this ( 😉 ) and the flower is made up of different Prima flowers from my stash. The small box measures: 4.3″ long, 2.75″ wide and 1.18″ deep. (approx.: 110mm. x 70 mm. x 30 mm.) Another cutie hostess gift for Easter 🙂

Do I need to tell you how HARD it was not to eat the yummy candies I put in the boxes??? :-O (well…..maybe one little piece went down….or was it two???) 😀

Now my attention turns to the new kit from SVGCuts that was released today: Happy Easter SVG Kit ….. more to follow soon 😉
