of that Springtime Vintage Suite! In the preparation of these projects I have used 2 packs of the Springtime Vintage papers! I have never used 2 packs of any paper – ever! I don’t usually get through one pack. Amazing! That just shows how much I love it. Right, well to show you how much, on to some more projects:
I created this gorgeous little Easter basket. It’ s made using 4 Scallop Envelopes (from the new SU! Big Shot die). You simply stick them all together as a box and stick up at the bottom. I cut the flaps again from the papers and stick those on. I also added a handle which I scalloped on both sides using the Scallop Lace Edge Punch and added some paper there too.
Here’s a close up of the ribbon I added to the sides of the handle. I just wrapped the ribbon backwards and forwards on itself and then tied it in the centre with Linen Thread to hold. I then used the Linen Thread to add the buttons. I just used a glue dot to stick it to the ends of the handles. Some paper scrunching and chocolate eggs finishes it off!
And here’s another of the cards I had on display. Layers of card and paper from the collection and then a Happy Birthday banner. Finished the whole thing off with a small flower cut using the Fun Flowers Bigz L die and another button. I tied this button with some Olive 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon. These big Buttons are perfect to be tied with this thin ribbon. I added a couple of hand cut leaves to the back of the flower and another Glue Dot (I’ve used a whole box of these too!) to stick it on.
I hope you’re enjoying all these projects. I know I had a blast making them. Come back again tomorrow for more. X
