It’s time for another CASE the Catty Challenge and what other theme could we do at this time of year other than Easter? We’re looking at the Easter section in the Occasions catalogue. You’ll know from my last few posts that my Berry Basket die has had quite a workout and why stop now?
One of the Easter catalogue projects features a Berry Basket with some scrunched grass and jelly beans hidden amongst which gave me the idea of a tiny faux-garden Easter egg hunt. We’re fortunate to have a large backyard here in suburbia but what if you’ve got an apartment or the snow hasn’t quite melted yet? My answer is the gift of an individual garden egg hunt.
I borrowed an idea from one of my team leaders, Simone, who featured an acetate berry basket in our recent team blog hop. This makes the ‘dirt’ visible from the outside and also shows little peeps of sparkly egg wrappers hidden in there. I didn’t use the connecting pieces from the die, instead I adhered four pieces of ribbon (one to each side) using glue dots, and tied the basket together. I also cut a piece of Garden Green cardstock and slipped it between the two base layers of acetate.
I ‘planted’ some cardstock daffodils made from cardstock and dyed filter paper. The shapes were cut using the Flower Fair framelits. I think I can get away with them only having five petals even though in real life they have six, right?
Lastly I cut thin strips of ‘dirt’ brown and ‘grass’ green cardstock and scrunched them to fill the basket. I hid some solid eggs in my basket to complete the hunt.
