Egg Hunt

Welcome to one of the *official* stops on the Papertrey Egg Hunt!

Look closely and you may find
a hidden egg that's one-of-a-kind.
Perhaps there are more than one or maybe even none!
The Challenge is yours, enjoy and have fun!

If you are starting out here, make sure that you stop by Nichole's Blog to read about all the details along with the GRAND Prize affiliated with this fun contest!

Spring is just around the corner and with it comes the Easter holiday. With this in mind, I've used the soon to be released Egg Hunt stamp set (available on the 15th) to create a super cute Easter gift. How about a gift basket perfect to fill with goodies, as a gift for your little boy's and girl's?! Here's how it's made...

Start by cutting out two basket templates (this is one of the new Click Simple Templates created by Kim Hughes and it's available on the 15th), stamp and embellish as desired, then set aside.
Cut a strip of cardstock that measures 10" X 3.5". Score at 1/2" along each long side and at 2 3/8" along the short sides. Cut a notch from each scored corner and you should have a piece like the one pictured above.
Fold at the scored lines and adhere basket sides with Score-Tape.
Here is the completed basket. The scalloped grass was cut using two sizes of the new PTI exclusive Scalloped Dies. Used the new Tin Type Impression Plate for the white cardstock strip and wrapped it with 1/4" Silk Ribbon. The shredded paper was created by cutting thin strips of coordinating pattern paper from the Pretty Pastels collection.
Be sure to coordinate your card to complete the perfect gift ensemble.
Since I crated the project for my soon to be three year old son, I die cut and heat embossed white eggs from Blue Shimmer Cardstock (Pink Shimmer Cardstock would be a great option for girls), then tucked them into the scalloped grass.
This cute little butterfly was stamped and heat embossed twice (onto Lemon Tart cardstock), cut out, layered and attached to both the basket and card.

Be sure to stop by the other PTI Design Team ladies blogs to see what beauties they have created!

Thanks for stopping by today!

I LOVE the soft colors and what you did with the scallop dies...that is so very smart!! The card and basket are splendid interpretations of the challenge. TFS.
