Well, welcome to our first Media Team blog hop for THE LITTLE BLUE HOUSE! Today we are sharing tips and tutorials featuring Easter projects we've made.
The hop started over on The Little Blue House Blog HERE, so if you're just joining me, be sure and hop back to the beginning so you don't miss anything! I'm sharing a super quick card I made using some of my favorite Reverse Confetti products. I made the Easter egg 3-D and here's how I did it:
I started by cutting three eggs from the More Than Jellybeans Confetti Cuts dies out of the super cute paper, Hello Sunshine by Doodlebug Designs.
Then I held them all together and simply folded them in half long-ways.
I also diecut a heart for the middle and folded it in half, too, and added it to my "stack".
I used a small hole punch to then punch 2 holes about a quarter inch apart right in the fold line through all 4 thicknesses.
Then I simply tied a little bit of twine through it and made a bow in the front.
Next I just fanned up the layers, creating a 3 dimensional effect. These are so cute and could be used in a variety of ways. Don't y'all think they'd be so cute on some spring or Easter scrapbook pages? Or how about some sweet tags to hang off your kiddo's Easter baskets? Awwww......
Adding it to my card was a snap and I finished it off with some sweet spring Fancy Frills Stickers also from Doodlebug and a banner made with another cute paper from the Hello Sunshine Collection. I have always loved their stuff--such happiness!
Ok it's time to hop on over to Vicki Chrisman's blog and see what kind of fabulousness she's come up with!
