Hello everyone! I have two projects to share with you today. The first is an altered wooden box. My thought process when making the box was to hide a prize inside for my family’s Easter hunt. I covered the wooden box with scrapbook paper from The Paper Studio and then I added felt grass and felt jelly beans from Kat Scrappiness, to all four sides of the box.
To decorate the top of the box, I added a cute white felt bunny and some orange and yellow flowers. These flowers shout “Springtime!” to me.
I really liked the way it came out and I think the kids will enjoy finding it when its full of treats and surprises for the holiday. I really enjoyed making this altered box.
My next projects are three Easter tags which I made using the chocolate bunnies from Kat Scrappiness. I made the tags for my niece and nephew, for their Easter baskets. The off white and chocolate bunnies are for my nephews and the pink bunny is for my niece of course.
For the pink tag, I used green paper from Making Memories paper. I sprayed the doilies with pink Lindy’s Stamp Gang and glued it down. I then added the pink bunny in the center.
To add a little girly sparkle I placed rhinestones all around the bunny and on the doilies. I then added trim and twine and Easter eggs to make it festive.
Next are the tags for the boys. I tried to keep it simple because as you may know, projects for boys can be difficult to create. I decided that the best approach would be to keep the tags bright and simple. I cut three of the little white felt bunnies so they would be a little shorter and used them at the bottom of the tag. I also added green polka dot paper and random felt jelly beans from Kat Scrappiness to give it some “pop”.
For my last tag, I used a chocolate brown felt bunny. (This tag is actually my favorite). I used the Flea Market paper line from Colorbok as well as a frame from Tim Holtz to make the felt bunny the focal point of the tag. I also added some brown twine at the bottom and some felt Easter eggs from Kat Scrappiness behind the twine to give the effect of the eggs in a basket. Again, since this tag is for a little boy I tried to keep it simple.
Below is a video showing these projects in more detail.
I hope you enjoyed these projects. I sure had a blast creating them!
