Easter goodies

I've recently been helping out with my church old people's group, and once in a while I get to teach them a crafty project. When designing a project I have to simplify it, have a think and simplify it again, and simplify it one more time! Here's the Easter project we worked on:

Inside are some little chocolate eggs and a chick :-)

Whilst I used a retired Stampin up die to make the boxes it would be easy enough to make a box yourself and make the top fancy with some decorative scissors. The fringe scissors make the grass super easy to make (and you can also use them for shredding confidential stuff)!

The best part about it was seeing the ladies and gentlemen clutching their little boxes on their way out as though they had made the Mona Lisa! So many were saying they'd not made anything since being a child, or they never thought they could make something so pretty. The satisfaction of seeing someone delight in their creation is fantastic!

I'm considering doing workshops in the future so watch this space!

A beautiful tree card is coming up next.

P.S. Some fabulous deals in the weekly deals section of Stampin Up today, including the envelope punch board I've been hoping to get my hands on for some time :-). So expect a few projects using that coming up!
