Happy Easter Basket


I took today off and ended up playing most of the day. Had a lot of fun and came up with this Easter Basket, I found the little basket at the Dollar store along with the egg picks. I used the Garden Soup Cricut Cartridge to cut my flowers out at 3". I tried to match the colors in the flowers on the basket. I used my glue gun and attached them to wooden skewers. I used my Tim Holtz scissors to cut the skewers off a little because they were too long. I cut my little bunnies from the Doodlecharms cartridge. I cut one bunny at 3" and one at 2". I used a black gel pen to draw in his whiskers and mouth. I used some pewter colored small pearls for the bunny's eyes and some pink chalk to add some light pink to the inside of his ears and to his cheeks. I cut the Happy Easter at 2" from the Easter Season Cartridge from 2010 and added some Star Dust stickles to it. To finish the basket I put in some of the crinkle cut grass and removed the remaining eggs from the picks and just placed in the basket on top of the grass.

I entered this project in the following challenges:
