I literally started to laugh out loud this morning as I took a peek at Kim's wonderful post! I have had these punched "border" pieces on my desk in my studio for days and have been overwhelmed with the tasks of running the business. If these didn't get done today, I knew they wouldn't get done and so I stamped a couple of items, pulled some supplies and brought them home with me tonight.
This post is especially for all those of you who have purchased Martha Stewart punches through us. They are marvelous and offer so much potential for fun projects. I apologize to those who would have like to purchase some of these punches for this year's Easter celebrations - but think in terms of using these little "wraps" around votive holders, flower vases and more. Fun, fun, fun!!!
Begin by punching strips of "grass" from Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety 6x6 paper. I selected two coordinating patterns to add that little extra zip. One strip of 6x6 easily fits around an egg :-D I actually cut the length of the paper down to 5 3/8", but this will depend on the size of your eggs.
I stamped the darling Hero Arts Bunny in Basket image using Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah cardstock. Quickly coloring this image with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.
A little of the satin ribbon (April's color is yellow :D) we include as a gift with our orders and a Kioshi Pop finish off this egg holder.
The point of these egg holders is to create something fun that is quick and easy! Think out of the box with the supplies you already own. For this one I decorated the egg with the wonderful new Kioshi Ribbon Doilies paper ribbon. This ribbon has an adhesive backing and it was SO easy to wrap and stick it to the surface of my egg. Talk about FANCY stickers - these are incredible!
This time I selected the Bunnies sitting in the Grass punch to coordinate with the grass punch. Adding some yellow crochet trim and another Kioshi Pop and yet another darling egg holder was complete.
The last egg holder is using the fabulous new Lockhart image, Spring Flower. I look forward to spring in such a big way and this image just exudes the beauty of springtime! Once again I colored with Copic Markers and Prismacolor pencils.
