Last year, I went crazy around Easter and made SO much Easter decor that not a single place in my house is vacant – so this year I thought I’d cool it a bit 😉
Didn’t really plan on making anything BUT then one after another started popping up – gorgeous, darling and delicious Easter Eggs. So I thought: What the heck – I can always give them away…..that is if I can part with them.
So I made 4 different Easter Eggs. This might just take a while – so go get a nice cuppa, maybe a cookie or a biscuit and get comfy 😉
I usually stay pretty loyal to a paper pack when making a project like this but this time is going to be different. I want to flaunt some of the amazing papers outthere 🙂
Starting with the cute and somewhat different Hollow Easter Egg from Simply Crafty Svgs:
This is made from AC Cardstock in Vanilla and decorated with Bloom patterned paper from Graphic 45.
I found a vine in the Silhouette Design Store design #26976 (designed by Jennifer Wambach) and added several Prima flowers and some gems onto the egg as well.
Then I raided my stash for something cute to put inside on the ledge and found several Tim Holtz items that does the trick – gives it a spring-y and natural feel to it.
I also played a bit with the egg design and made another version without the ledge:
This is also made from Vanilla Cardstock and Bloom papers.
The vine around the hole is made from design #126611 (designed by Sophie Gallo) in the Silhouette Design Store and the vine inside the egg is design #7320 (designed by Samantha Walker) from the same store.
Then I embellished with several Prima flowers, a few gems and a LED light – Voila!
Find the tutorial to the egg here.
Next is the Gouden Ei (Golden Egg) from Creatieve Papier Uitspattigen:
This is made from White AC Cardstock and decorated with patterned paper from DCWV’s Unicorns & Rainbows collection + gold glitter paper from Vivi Gade.
This is one of their easier designs and it goes together perfectly and easily but with help from the Video Tutorial.
I added pieces of a rhinestone chain, from my stash, onto the egg with hot glue and embellished with a Prima butterfly.
This is a box and opens up by lifting the egg shell – room for lots of chocolates 😀
Then I made the Egg 3D Form Multi Diamonds from Jodi Warner/Snapdragon Snippets found the Silhouette Design Store design #291232:
This is a closed egg and is designed to either stand alone or be made with a small stub so it’ll fit in the candle stands that Jodi also designed – I decided that I wanted it to stand alone. Find the tutorial here.
I used AC Cardstock in White for the egg itself and decorated with glitter paper in various colors for a kind of Harlekin effect.
I also added some small and large rhinestones as embellishments and topped it all of with a Prima butterfly.
I regretted that I hadn’t made it with the stub, so I might make three new eggs like this and decorate my candle stands.
Finally I made the Eggs-Quisite Gift Box from Dreaming Tree:
This elegant gift box is part of a bundle – Easter Time – with several adorable Easter projects. Find the tutorial for the egg here.
I used AC Cardstock in White, Rosebud, Olive, Scarlet, Peach and Plum along with patterned paper from Prima’s Lavender Frost Collection, Rose Gold Mercury Glass Paper from DCWV and Rose Gold glitter paper from DCWV.
I found some bling-y ribbon/chain and added it with hot glue and topped it all of with a pearl embellishment from a Hat Pin.
This one will also hold an insane amount of chocolate so you might want to fill it with a bit of tissue paper before filling it 😉
So that is what I made for Easter this year – don’t really know if I can part with them….we’ll see 😀
Thanks for sticking with me through this rather long post (so sorry) and please remember how excited I get when reading your lovely comments below 😉
Happy Easter ❤
