It’s All About the Lilies Easter Basket

It’s All About the Lilies Easter Basket

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday and welcome to another dose of Heartfelt Creations inspiration.  Since Easter is fast approaching and Lilies go perfectly with Easter I decided to make an Easter basket and cover it with Lilies!  My basket was made using the 3D Half Egg Bunny Box by Jamie Cripps.  It was simply perfect for the look I was trying to achieve.  The eggs were cut from the Poplar Street Tulips SVG Kit but were scaled down to fit the basket.  At full size these eggs make excellent treat boxes.

Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Cut File, Pipe Cleaner, White Ink,  Versamark, Embossing Powders Red Cinnaber and Aged Ivory, Archival Ink Red Geranium, Bundled Sage Distressed Ink, Lace and Ribbon from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by making your basket according to the directions and using the decorative panels cut from from the Sunrise Lily Paper Collection.  The eggs were also made according to directions and covered with paper from the Sunrise Lily Paper Collection but since they were larger than what I wanted, the eggs were scaled down to 60% of their original size.  The front and back panels were further die cut using the Regal Borders and Pockets Die for some added punch.  The flowers were stamped with White Ink and Heat embossed with Aged Ivory Embossing Powder.  The small Birds and Blooms flowers were stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Red Cinnaber before distressing then with Red Geranium and attaching them to a pipe cleaner.  The leaves and flourishes were die cut and distressed with Bundles Sage Distressed Ink.  The finishing touch for the flowers was to accent the stamens with Mini Prills! Finish decorating with some lace and ribbon, fill the basket with goodies and enjoy!

Thanks so much for visiting.  Have a wonderful day!
