Everything is distressed using Vintage Photo Distress Ink (surprise, surprise). The images are mounted onto Kraft cardstock and then sugared with crystal glitter. A few buttons threaded with the retrieved linen thread are the perfect embellishment! Everything is better with buttons! LOL! I was also able to add some of the delicious ribbon I spied in the dollar bin at Michael's! Who knew such a luscious roll would be housed in such a shabby place? I must go get more!
I let my daughter pick first since my son wasn't home at the time and she chose Mr. Bunny headed on an Easter Outing. I guess my son gets Spring Joy! I thought for sure she would pick the one with the babies and bunnies! Oh well!
These were so easy to make. I just scored an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of Kraft cardstock at 2 inches on the long side. I then scored at 2, 5 1/4, 7 1/4, and 10 1/2 with a half inch tab to adhere it together. The height is 4 1/2. The handles are a one inch strip secured to the inside with glue dots. I added a strip of ribbon across the handle with sticky strip and then added the two bows with glue dots on either side! So super quick! Thanks for fluttering by!
