Simply Spring Projects
For Pages from the Heart, I made a series of projects using We R Memory Keeper's Simply Spring collection.
It is a gorgeous spring themed collection with pastel colors and super cute embellishments.
The first project I completed was a New Orleans layout, which I've already written about here. I also altered a wooden basket into an Easter basket and made an egg themed card.
I started with a plain wooden basket from a craft store and painted it with white craft paint.
Then I traced each side onto patterned paper, cut it out, and adhered it to the wood with Mod Podge. All four sides were covered using only one sheet of 12 x 12" paper. The basket is a reasonable size as it held the entire bag of large plastic eggs I had purchased.
For a central decoration, I used a journaling die cut as the starting off point and layered it with some dimensional stickers, alphabet stickers and Stickles.
A child would love receiving a handmade basket, especially with all the goodies inside.
An Eggstraordinary Card
I wanted to make an encouragement card featuring some eggs, but instead of popping them up, I wanted them recessed in the card.
I ended up popping up the front panel and embedding the Easter eggs behind the panel.
