Easter April 2015



Last weekend, here in New Zealand we celebrated Easter.
What with 2 kids in their “tweens” (11 years old and 13 years old}, Easter treats are getting harder and harder each year!
I always make a point of the Easter Bunny leaving something they can hang onto and re-use in years to come, such as mugs, lego tins etc.
This year I found a giant Bunny, measuring  20” long, and his ears are a giant 9” long!
 

Project 1 “Chick-House”


I made some cute little bird/chick-houses with my Sizzix Milk Carton Die, I stamped them with the “Hardwood” stamp in Sahara Sand. I chose Naturals White cardstock for the houses, and Tangerine Tango (cut using the “Large Scallop” Edgelits} for the roof, as this matched back perfectly with the tiny little chocolate carrots wrapped in carrot coloured foil.
I punched a little window with the 1” circle Punch, and added a Window Sheet/Acetate. That way you could see the little carrots inside the house!
The finishing touch is a little chick, punched with the Bird Builder punch, and the little wing is punched using the heart from the “Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack”. Dazzling Details are added to the chicks wing, as the finishing touch.
Wah-lah … “Chick-House” done!

Project 1 ”Punch Art Easter Berry Basket”


I also made an Easter Basket with the “Berry Basket” Bigz L Die, with a cute little bow, made with the “Bow Builder” Punch.
Easter is the perfect time to get out your Punches, and experiment with some Punch Art. To get some other great Punch Art ideas, check out Pinterest
This is the Punch Art Easter Bunny Box that I made last year {featuring the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch},  that my Bunny is based on …



I used a variety of Punches to create the Easter Bunny: 1” Circle, 2” Circle, Boho Blossoms, Extra-Large Oval, heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Large Oval, Owl Builder, Petite Petals, and “Circles Collection” Framelits.
The little bunny is holding a sign, stamped in Old Olive featuring the “Crazy About You” and “Perfect Pennants” stamp sets.
Wah-lah …”Punch Art Easter Berry Basket” done!
