No Bunny LOVES you like JESUS!
Easter Blessings to you and yours. My favorite time of the year! A time to remember the greatest gift of love. A sacrifice of a father and a son for their people. Praise & Glory to God!!
I am presenting a photo blog of Easter treasures. Enjoy.
Dare I say "A Dream Come True?" For the next few months I will be creating alongside my favorite artist, Regina Easter. She is the owner and designer of The Cutting Cafe. I love her work!
For my inaugural post we are celebrating Easter using Shaped Treat Cup Cards! There are two styles of bunnies and an egg with which to let your imagination play. Please be sure to visit The Cutting Cafe blog post and see the fun created by the other design team members. Fabulous ideas!!
I chose to work with the Egg Treat Cup Card. I decided to use this pattern to mimic a panoramic sugar egg (also known as sugar Easter eggs, diorama eggs). The kind where you peek through a hole on one end of the egg and view a scene.
First I increased the size of the egg. (Be sure you select all pieces of the file before changing the size and maybe keep a copy of the original.) Being that my version is no longer a treat cup (and I don't want any little fingers messing with my scene) I eliminated the slider pieces. I also eliminated the fold and left this as card that does not open. Assembling the treat cup itself is a breeze with Regina's thoughtful design. I enjoyed deciding what to put in and on my egg. A little tricky getting everything lined up inside as well as working with little pieces! But it was fun!
Recently, I used treat cups from Stampin' Up to make bunny bottoms for an order.

Here are some other ideas to use the pom poms.
Sharing more of the cross boxes. These were a custom order for confirmation. These boxes are perfect for first communion as well. I made these at 6 inches in height.
The Box is from SVG Attic and the rolled flowers are from Pazzles. You can read more about the process at this earlier post.
Today I have made a cross box for Easter. It is beautiful. I wish I had time to make more. Can you imagine the color choices?!
I made the box first. The pattern comes as an SVG file. I brought that into my Pazzles and then saved it as a WPC Pazzles software file. I converted the kiss cut lines to solid lines. I did this so I could emboss those lines for scoring instead of the traditional perforated cuts. I think it has a cleaner, more finished look. Because I am not truly embossing, I use the embossing tool on the adhesive mat to score first, then use the cutting tool to cut.
Assemble the box . . .

Finished Easter Cross Box
Easter is just around the corner. March 20! I am so excited to celebrate my Risen Lord.
I have been busy making items for this glorious occasion. Please stop into my store and have a look. Do not see what you want? Then do contact me. I love those custom orders.
So my latest endeavor is to make these darling Bunny Boxes designed by Dani from Italy. Here is her blog site, StampingDani. Dani's bunny boxes look so sweet sitting around your table for Easter dinner. And they do keep mulitplying! For me anyway. I have had a number of orders for this bunny box. These are just sample colors. I have also made bright spring colors. Those are my favorite. I might have to make a few for my own Easter Dinner!
I am a huge fan of thrift stores. I often stop in to see what I didn't know I needed! Like these cute Easter egg boxes. I dressed them up with more Easter Bunnies. The rabbit delivering eggs in his truck is a design from Treasure Box Designs. The two sitting rabbits are from Designs on Cloud 9. They are all adorable! It was so fun to make these paper piecings.
