I made these cute bags for my grandies for their Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday. We love having them here for their annual chocolate chase, the faeries are sure to have hidden them lots of little surprises – but what should they collect them in?

Nana to the rescue! In my craft stash I happen to have a stock of Kraft Lunch Bags – they make great personal gift bags and can be put together in a matter of minutes.

I got to work and using my Tonic Studios Harrop dies I cut out a large scalloped rectangle to decorate the front of each. I cut two large ovals for each from my new Mixed Edge Oval die set, also from Tonic. There are 13 dies in the set, with alternating scalloped and plain edges, so they will get used over and over, but the shape made them perfect for this project.

I finished each mock-choc egg with a ribbon. Some cut bunnies using a gift die from Papercrafter Magazine, and the name, cut using a Sizzix Thinlits alphabet set, finished each bag.

Cute huh? So easy peasy and they take no time at all. So cute I decided to enter them in the Anything Goes Challenge over at Win & Tonic.

It’s your baby shower!

I loved making this card! I used a First Edition paper stack, Animal Antics, because the colours are so vibrant. I bought it for scrapbooking ages ago, but its too much fun to keep for just one purpose. Filled with giraffes and elephants and cute little birds, the palette of  bright yellow and turquoise is good for both little boys and little girls.

I cut my card using the Sizzix Fancy Frame Flip Its die set by Stephanie Barnard, one of my favourite designers. I pasted two cards together to form a double flip flop, a trick I learned from one of Stephanie Barnard’s youtube vides. It gives extra strength to the card base and twice the fun.

I cut the bunnies from a Sizzix Easter die set, they are so cute aren’t they?

I used some Tonic dies from my Garland Terrace Mini Indulgence die set, to layer up the flip flop panels.

I cut out tiny squares to make the little building bricks that spell out shower and inked them up at the edges to emphasise the 3 dimensional aspect of them.

I really liked this card when it was done, so I hope the recipient enjoys it as much as I did making it!
