Just Add Ink this week is Just Add Easter! I don't normally get carried away with Easter presents, other than giving the kids an egg or bunny, we don't give Easter gifts. When I saw the amazing DT creations this week at JAI, I knew I wanted to play :) They totally inspired me to get all Eastery lol!!! Add to that the fact that I just LOVE 3D projects and I was definitely motivated to do something!
Seeing as how I'm going to Victoria on 23rd (yes, I'm counting the days!) to see my son and family, I decided to make Easter boxes for Hannah & Brody...my grandbabies...well, not babies anymore...they are 8 & 5! My, how time flies by!!! It's been 13 months since I last saw them and I'm sooo looking forward to cuddles :)
Ages ago I found a tutorial HERE for these little treat box/bag things (I have a thing about treat boxes...don't I Helen!!) so I printed it out and filed it. I wanted to make a bigger version to hopefully fit a bunny and some eggs inside so I set about adjusting the dimensions. (My version has a box with the front & back made separately) I also added a flap closure to the top instead of ribbon ties. My version is 4 1/2" wide x 7 3/4" high, not including the flap.
I had to get "creative" with the images...Ornament Trevor (obviously without his ornaments lol!) and Autumn Emma (without her pumpkin!)...from CC Designs at All That Scraps. I LOVE the Sugarplums designs...they are just so darn cute :) I coloured with Copics and cut the images out so I could raise them on dimensional dots. CS is SU Pale Plum and CM Navy. The eggs, tag and DP behind Emma are from the digi kit Hoppy Hearts by Nit Wit. DP behind Trevor is from a Grant paper pack. Ribbon is Kaiser grosgrain. The wagons have been coated with dimensional glaze and the eggs highlighted with glitter pens and Stickles. The Emma flap was made with my SU lace punch and Trevor's flap was hand cut.
