Happy, Hippity, Hoppity Easter!


It's almost that time again... Egg hunts, baby chicks, fuzzy rabbits: All the great things about Easter! And to help you celebrate the holiday, Paper House has a brand new Easter Theme! Complete with Papers, Cardstock Stickers, and Mini Cut-Outs, this spring colored collection will coordinate perfectly with your photos! And it's perfect for scrapbook pages, cards, or themed projects!

This week, we're sharing a darling Easter card we made using our Easter papers and embellished with the Cardstock Stickers. The Happy Easter greeting and the adorable chicks were stamped from the My Sentiment's Exactly! Happy Easter set (Y202). We also applied Ranger's Star Dust Stickles glitter over a few stickers and added some rhinestones to give it pizzazz. 


We're also super lucky to be sharing this awesome project made by Sue Higgins of Indiana. Sue's been sending us some of her great crafts she made using Paper House products, and they're fantastic! For this adorable Easter decoration, Sue covered a Cardboard Egg in our paper and added grass and mini cut-outs to make the cutest-ever Easter Basket! You can follow along with the instructions below to make this great project just in time for the holiday!


Supplies:

Cardboard Egg
Popsicle Sticks
Modge Podge

Instructions:
  1. Trace cardboard shape (front, sides, and top) onto the Easter Bunny Paper. Trim out and adhere to cardboard shape.
  2. Generously apply one coat of Modge Podge to seal. Allow to dry.
  3. Glue the Bunny & Duckling Mini Cut-Outs to popsicle sticks. 
  4. Fill as desired (you could include Easter grass, eggs, candy, etc), nesting the Mini Cut-Out sticks among the Easter Basket fill.
This is a great decorative project, perfect for the spring season. Thanks so much for sharing it, Sue! Be sure to check out our projects tag on the side for more great make-ables!

I adore this basket- I work in a residence hall at a public university and I am always looking for fun, easy and low cost craft projects to share with my students. This one looks like a great match and while I did not find it in time for easter, I am sure we can do a variation as Mother's Day Gifts!
