SpringWatch 2018 Cadbury’s Creme Egg Baskets with Picture Perfect

Stampin Up! #1 Demonstrator Pootles – SpringWatch 2018 Cadbury’s Creme Egg Baskets with Picture Perfect

SpringWatch Giveaway for today – MINI EMBROIDERY HOOPS AND BIRTHDAY MINI BINDER CLIPS – details on how to enter at the bottom

I had to do it didn’t I? Make an Egg Basket inside SpringWatch that is!

I am not a fan of creme eggs, I love fondant and I love chocolate, but the 2 just don’t seem to work in my mind. But I understand that I’m an odd one here…

However, my 4 boys love them, and apparently so does my Dad! I never knew this information about him, but you learn something new about your parents every year….!

We don’t have lots of typically Eastery papers in the catalogue (in fact we don’t have any in that theme!) but my boys love bright colours and so with them in mind, I decided to pull out the fun bright patterns of the Picture Perfect Party papers. The background images are particularly good for something bright and cheery like an Easter Egg and even some of the photographic ones work well too.

I had some fun playing around to get the right image on the front, but the bunny from Hello Easter works very well with the new Embroidery Hoops and a couple of Circle Punches to get a backdrop and to cut the bunny.

Envelope Punch Board plus new stuff is always a win for me. Now where are those Lindor eggs.. they’re much yummier for my tastebuds!

S x

DSP – 6 x 6″ (15.25 x 15.25cm)

Punch and score on the first side at 1-3/4 AND 4″ (3.5 AND 10.2cm) then use the scored lines and score guide to punch and score the rest of the sides.

  39. Debbie Perry says:

    Sam, Which is correct for the 1st punch & score? Is it 1 3/8 or 1 3/4? Video says 1 3/8 but written says 1 3/4. Couldn’t read the measurement in video to see where you were. Love, love, love this little basket andplan on making it for my Easter favors! Thanks
