Mini Cadbury Egg Basket

Need a really quick Easter gift?  This little basket of a dozen candy eggs is super simple!

I designed this to fit these Mini Cadbury Creme Eggs.

Here is how to make one:
1. Cut a 4-1/2" by 9" piece of DSP or card stock.  
2. Score at 1 inch on each side.  
3. Trim on the score lines to form tabs and adhere with strong adhesive such as Sticky Strip or Fast Fuse. 
4.  Add a 1" by 11" handle.
5.  Decorate as desired 
Supplies:  Simply Wonderful Stamp Set, Costal Cabana Classic Ink, Best Year Ever Accessory Pack, Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper, Costal Cabana Cardstock, Costal Cabana Thick Bakers Twine, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Basic Rhinestones

Stamp Review Crew: Sheltering Tree

Welcome to the Sheltering Tree edition of the Stamp Review Crew's bi-weekly blog hop.

I have not participated in the hops (or even stamped) in quite a while as I was caring for my mom through her journey with end stage cancer. The sentiment from the Sheltering Tree stamp set is particularly meaningful as we were blessed with so many wonderful friends and family who surrounded us with love.

It was therapeutic to create this framed artwork remembering the many, many acts of kindness bestowed upon us.

I used the Chalkboard Banner Kit and added just a few other embellishments.  The background is made with layered DSP banners that come with the kit and the tree is embossed on one of the chalkboard pieces.
Thank you for stopping by.  Please click on the links below to see all the other beautiful creations our crew has prepared with this lovely stamp set.

Supplies:  Chalkboard Banner Kit, Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim,  Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Gold and Melon Mambo Embossing Powder, 6" X 8" frame (Non-SU!)
