Sweet Blossoming Basket Easter Treat

Last week was the Annual General Meeting for my local WI, and guess what, I am now on the Committee! We played a fun game of Beetle Drive, a game I had never played before, yet I won! It must have been beginner's luck.

Why is this important? Because the prize was a Chocolate Easter Egg, which if you know me, is not something that I would eat, but everyone was offered a small egg, some of which particularly caught my eye because they were in Stampin' Up! In Colours; Emerald Envy and Flirty Flamingo! So I had to make a cute little basket for them. One basket for each egg.

Blossoming Basket Easter Egg Basket

The Blossoming Basket stamp set was the obvious choice, and of course it is FREE with a Qualifying Order until the end of the month. It is part of a Bundle with the Basket Weave Dynamic Embossing Folder (which will be in the new Annual Catalogue, but for money!). I stamped it in Basic Grey Archival Ink on Shimmer White Card, fussy cut it out and then them coloured it in using Stampin' Write Markers.

I made a small open top box to house the egg and packed it out with some Ready Shreddy, coloured using alcohol and a few drops of reinker in a Stampin' Spritzer, sprayed onto white, for the Flirty Flamingo, and silver for the Emerald Envy.

A bow round the handle and a few rhinestones on the flowers and they were done. And I love them, they are such a great way to package up a small egg. I think they may feature on our Easter Dinner Table this year!

Remember that until 31st March, you will get FREE items for every £45 order (if you spend £90 you can either choose 2 Items, or 1 of the new Level 2 Items!!!).
