Colors of the Rainbow

Hello – so happy you joined me today šŸ™‚

This time it’s not going to be about Easter :-O

If you have followed my blog for some time, you know that I’m crazy about color and this next project is no exception.

These delightful and cuteĀ Single Test Tube Holders from Paper Closet Designs – all designed by the very talented Tracy Moon Rushton, can be decorated and used in endless ways and this is just one idea that I’m about to show you šŸ™‚

Putting candy in a test tube and displaying it in a cute holder, is just sheer genius to me. I know lots of kids who love to have these to share with their buddies or classmates. So great for theme Birthdays and even for adults too šŸ˜‰

So I made these in the colors of the rainbow with a big help from Doodlebug Design Papers and the first one is Red:

Red is made from AC Cardstock in Black and patterned paper from the “Back to School” collection. I found theĀ apple and the other Doddlebug Shapes in the Silhouette Design Store but you can also get these fromĀ Lori Whitlock. I glued the cut out the black cut out circle onto the lid and decorated with 3 Doodlebug Sprinkles in red colors.

Next is Pink:

I know! I cheated a bit with this one as it’s not a rainbow color but the cute fish-bone paper from the “Kitten Smitten” collection spoke to me and so did the cuteĀ kitten. The holder it-self is made from AC Cardstock in Bubblegum.

Then we have Orange:

I had a bit more difficulty choosing the paper for this one but ended up with a patterned paper from the “Anchors Aweigh” collection and a littleĀ boat. The cardstock is AC in the color Apricot.

Now it’s Yellow:

For this one I used AC Cardstock in Robin’s Egg and patterned paper from the “Spring Things” Collection. ThatĀ bee is just so darn cute!

Then we have Green:

This is made from AC Cardstock in Cheastnut and patterned paper from the “At the Zoo” collection and I decorated with the cutest Mama and babyĀ girafs.

After Green comes Blue:

For this one I chose AC Cardstock in Grass and patterned paper from the “Dragon Tail” collection. I just love this fire blowingĀ dragon.

Last but not least there is Purple:

This cutie is made from AC Cardstock in white and decorated with patterned paper from the “Fairy Tales” collection. Tell me – which girl can stand for this adorable littleĀ unicorn?

There you have them all! For all the little decorations, I’ve used the Print and Cut option on my Silhouette Cameo. Even though there are 7 holders, it didn’t take me long to have them all cut and assembled. A super easy project – luckily if you’re going to make them as party favors or for an entire school class šŸ™‚

Egg-stravagant Baskets……

So glad you decided to come join me today, as I want to show you the most darling little Easter Egg Baskets I made.

All of these baskets are designed by the very talented Tracey Moon Rushton of Idea ClosetĀ and can be purchasedĀ  here

Let’s start off with the smallest – the Chocolate Egg Basket Single:

Next is the Chocolate Egg Basket DoubleĀ that holds two eggs:

And the largest of the baskets, the Chocolate Egg Basket 4 pack that holds 4 eggs:

For my versions of the baskets, I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla and patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Secret Garden”.

I cut out extra panels for the inside of the baskets and decorated them with various flowers from Prima and chipboard tags also from Graphic 45.

Finally I put in plastic eggs that I decorated with paper borders and Prima flowers + small gems as flower centers, since I haven’t gotten to buying any eggs for them yet šŸ˜®

The baskets also comes in a handy bundleĀ if you decide to get all three baskets at once

That was all for now – feels like I’m not quite done with Easter just yet šŸ˜‰ Stay tuned for more……
