Hope you all have had a fun and productive weekend. I spent a lot of time this weekend with my girls. I helped my older daughter sew a dress, and I taught my younger daughter how to drive a stick shift! It is pretty exciting to have a new driver in the house.
I did find some time to work on my own projects as well. I made two projects from the new Egg Hunt set from SVG Cuts. Here is the original little chick box:
It is pretty cute, but I think it is kind of plain. I was a bit confused, as Mary's files usually have decorative panels to embellish, but this one didn't. I went to the SVG Cuts website, and watched the video, and then I understood. Mary designed this box to be very little, and it doesn't really need embellishments at its tiny original size.
Because I want to fill it with lots of Easter treats, and I want it to be a bit more interesting, I created my own panels to jazz it up a bit. Here is my alternative solution:
Now this is better! I especially like the little "feathers" that are standing up on his head. I just used papers from my stash for this one. I think I will go shopping for some special papers for this cutie!
I also made the petal basket from the same set:
This was really quick and easy to cut and assemble. I added some embossing on the outer petals. I think I will be making more of these. I guess my girls are going to get lots of treats this year!
Have a terrific week, everyone!
