With Easter being around the corner, many of us will share some yummy chocolate treats with friends and family. Typically it is a handful of chocolate eggs or a large chocolate bunny for a child who will gobble them up as fast as they find them. Join Trisha and Anam in taking the non-traditional Easter Basket route to celebrate SPRING!
In fact, you may decide to KEEP the bag just to store your secret stash of delectable delights as it is just too pretty to give away! Better yet, create one as your gift bag and another for yourself! Make the recipient an extremely happy person and put a smile on your face as well!
Load up on the brown and pink elements from the My Mind's Eye LUSH Collections to create a project similar to this. This project includes the ribbons, epoxy brads and papers. By layering multiple patterns and keeping the colour scheme simple, the end result is fantastic! Using a fine tipped pair of scissors, an exacto knife and cutting mat and taking the the time to cut out the beautiful flocked flowers on the floral paper, the end result is almost as yummy as the sweet treat being given as the gift!
Now Anam has taken Spring Fun to an entirely new level!
She has created these fun Pillow Boxes disguised as Seed Packets to be shared with those near and dear that don't need or want the calories that Sweet Treats pack!
"Spring is finally here and now is the time to start the cycle of life that is seeds and plants to give us beautiful summer blooms. I love to give the gift of seeds to friends as it is sharing hope and faith in the future. These are very simple little envelopes that carry a gift that doesn’t cost much but the result can be so beautiful!"
Anam created a template to download so that you too can follow the attached instructions to create your own Seed Packets to share with friends:)
