Easter Eggs

Hello and welcome back.
I finally received my Easter dies!  Unfortunately I have been sick this last week and it was a bit of a rush to get my post ready.  So please bare with me while I get thru this bout of sickness.

I thought I would make something different this week.  I used some old packaging plastic in the shape of a cylinder and popped an egg into the middle.  On the outside I tied a bow (that has little chicks on it) and then began to cut out and stick down my dies.  

Firstly, for the large egg, I cut out the Spring Basket and used one of the Lace Egg dies in the centre.  I then used the Bunny and Chick Border to run along the bottom of the cylinder.  For the tag I used Nesting Eggs with the bunny from the Spring Basket and popped him in the middle.

For the smaller project, I used another plastic cylinder and filled it up with small Easter eggs.  I then used the Lace Egg die again and cut four eggs out and placing them all around the cylinder.  Topping off with a bow (this one had bunny faces on it!) I also made a tag.  This was using the Nesting Eggs again and also the bunny that came with the set.

Dies used:

I hope you like my projects and again, I am sorry that I only had a short time in which to bring you this post.  Please look out for the weekly challenge, on again at the Cheery Lynn Designs blog.

Till next time Celeste
