Easter Eggs and a Green Thumb Gift


Nothing like posting Easter decorations on Easter, when it's too late for anyone to be inspired! Maybe you can use this for next year. You know the little doo-dahs they put in egg decorating kits to put around the bottom of your eggs? Well, I made my own with cardstock and the PTI set Tags for Spring, which I love! These pix don't do these justice, they are much cuter in real life, but I had a little girl going through post-sugar-high meltdown and just didn't have time to fool with getting better ones. I cut my CS strips 1.5 " by 5.75 ", but it would be a good idea to measure around your egg with your cs before cutting. Stamped the tags and punched them out, adhered them to the cardstock stand and voila! A cute Easter treat. CS: Stamper's Select White, Aqua Mist, Sweet Blush, Lemon Tart, Summer Sunrise, New Leaf, and Raspberry Fizz (and RF Mix) all by PTI. Ink: Same as above plus Lavender Moon. Accessories, 1.75 " circle punch by EK Success, Blue Scallop Circle punch by Marvy Uchida, unknown rhinestones, pink Stickles, white EP.

I actually made this cute little boot a long time ago in the midst of winter, and finally got some neat gardening stuff to put in it for a gift for my next-door neighbor. This is the Stocking Stuffer free download from My Timeless Templates. I made it look like the boot from PTI's Green Thumb set (which I don't have). I used Polka Dot Basics in Berry Sorbet on Sweet Blush CS. Tag is from Tags for Spring and the close up I took came out blurry, but it says Welcome Spring around the edge of the tag. Ribbon is Sweet Blush Satin, tag is attached to the bow with embroidery floss. The green thing sticking up is a cute little dragon fly that you are supposed to stick in a flower pot with your plant. There is some gardening soap and some gloves that just matched the colors so perfectly!






Hope everyone had a happy and blessed Easter! Thanks for stopping by!
