Easter treats

Click here to Watch my latest YouTube Tutorial

I wanted to make some fun Easter treats for a group of teenagers I was spending Easter with.  As there was going to be 16 of them it was going to be quite expensive so I bought a selection of mini eggs and split the packets and mixed them and used the little cellophane bags.  I decorated the tops with an Easter chick using the own builder punch.  I think they look fun and I a sure the kids will like them.


I used the owl punch and punch out the body, 2 small circles and the heart, I did this in yellow card stock and I also did it in whisper white card stock and coloured these using the water colour pencils. I cut the owl ears off by following the curve of the body, coloured with the yellow water coloured pencil and used a blender pen to give it a water colour effect.  I used the Pumpkin Pie pencil to colour the feet and heart shape, again blended with the blender pen. I coloured 2 pearls with a black sharpie pen.  I cut a half scalloped circle for the wings and again coloured as \I did the body. I then cut a circle in whisper white using the 2 1/2 inch circle pinch. I inked all the edges in peekaboo peach. I stamped a small Happy Easter greeting in Peekaboo peach and used the small label punch to cut it out ad again inked the edges.

Then I stuck it all together, the half scalloped circle was cut in half and stuck to the bac of the chick at an angle, I stuck the heart in the middle of the body and stuck the eyes on the 2 rounded tops of the heart. I then positioned the peals in the centre of the eyes. I folded the celo bag over twice, placed the folded circle over the fold and stapled it together. Using Dimensional's I stuck the chick to the topper and stuck the greeting on it.

Simple easy to make projects - even simpler when yellow card is used.

For the products please visit my shop - remember the water colour pencils are available in the occasions catalogue and may not be carried over to new catalogue in June so get them while you can!
