Easter Egg Shaker Bag

Hello πŸ™‚ So glad you found the time to join me today.

I know I’ve been going a bit cray cray with all kinds of Easter projects lately – I just feel so inspired this year.

This time I’ve thrown myself at the cuteΒ Easter Egg Hunt Collection from Bird. I felt like having a bit of fun with the files, so I simply combined two of the files into one – The Easter Egg Shaker Card and the Easter Egg Hunt Gift Bag. I also downsized the two files to 50% (so it holds less egg – I’m not a rich girl πŸ˜‰ )

For this project I used AC Cardstock in Lavender and Vanilla along with cream colored Pearl Paper. I also used various sequins and glitter to put inside the shaker part.

I also added a small Prima Flower and some leaves, decorated the front of the bag with some small gems in purple and pink and tied a organza ribbon on as handle. Then I filled the bag with chocolates πŸ˜›

All you have to do is follow the instructions videos that Bird made and simply put the shaker part from the card onto the bag insted of the panel piece made for it. I did scramble a bit around with the sizes to make them fit perfectly together – just make sure to group the shaker parts together so they still fit together. The size for the shaker front panel is: 101.46 mm x 78.22 mm (3.994″ x 3.080″ )

Here’s a close-up so you can see the sequins and glitter in the shaker:

A small but easy and fun project that I really hope you feel like making too πŸ™‚

Thanks for joining me today…..Easter is racing towards us. Have you decorated your house yet and are you done with your Easter craft projects? Me….No…..and NO πŸ˜€

 

Pucker Up

Believe me!…..this is very unusual for me πŸ˜€ Here is a Valentines Day post from me πŸ˜€

I could swear that I would never post anything pink, red and gooey but I just got a new toy: The Cricut Maker. So naturally I had to play.

I know absolutely nothing about the Design Space – the Maker’s software, so I had to find things to play with to learn and this cute Lips Gift Box from Bird’s SVGs was just perfect.

I made the box from AC Cardstock in Rouge and red pearl paper. It is really really easy to make and assemble.

Then I filled it with chocolates:

Now ready for someone πŸ˜€ LOL

Making this really teached me a thing or two about the Maker and love a lot of the features…..I’ll keep playing πŸ™‚

Happy Valentines Day to all of you ❀
