Stampin' Up Stampin' Up Easter Basket Easter Lamb, Bunny, Chick, Cadbury Egg Treat Holder IIII

Goodness, did we get the ice on top of snow.  I stuck my head outside and all you can hear is the tree limbs clinking together in the wind.  We only got about 3" of snow so far and a lot of ice on top.  Hope it melts quick...and then...our road will get messy again!  Not such a good start to our Spring! 

My blog post e-mails stopped going out to my subscribers on Feb.10th this year.  It took a while to realize that this happened and then a while to get it fixed.  Hopefully, you are all receiving my blog post e-mail in your mail boxes today!

All week long this week, I'm sharing the contents of the Easter Basket that I made for my Good Friend and Fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Kadie, as a door prize for her Down Line meeting.

Let's take a peek at the basket again that I've already posted and the third item:

What a fun Easter Basket!

Pictured above is a Cadbury Egg Treat Holder. There's a YouTube video on how to make it and, if I remember correctly, it was titled Easter Gift Idea.  I will include the instructions too in my post today!

I used Stampin' Up's 2014-2016 In-Color Designer Series Paper to make mine.  These colors will be retiring soon!   And, I used some of SU's Blushing Bride and Garden Green colors too!  It was fun using a lot of different SU colors to make this project!

Pictured above is a side shot of how the Cadbury egg sits inside the treat holder.

My cardstock is cut at 2" x 7-1/4" and scored at 3-5/8" - 4" - 3-1/4".  
Punch each end using Stampin' Up's Scallop Tag Topper Punch.
Accordion fold the score lines depending on which side of the cardstock that you want on the outside.
Using SU's Large Oval Punch, I punched an oval, centered and about a 1/4" above the score line, in each side of the cardstock.

I put a SU Glue Dot in each top corner of the treat holder, centered my Cadbury Egg in the punched windows and pressed the top closed.

I then made a bow using SU's Bow Builder Punch and adhered it to the top using SU's Glue Dots.

I took an additional step of adding a sentiment.  I stamped my sentiment from SU's Teeny Tiny Wishes in Black Memento Ink on SU's Whisper White Cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to one of the ovals that I punched out using SU's Stampin' Dimensionals and then adhered it to the Cadbury Egg using SU's Glue Dots.

That's all I have for today.  Come back tomorrow where I'll share another item in the Easter Basket.

Have a good day!

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  Please be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
