Simply Create Too - Challenge 159 - Anything But a Card!

The Blue Design Team from Simple Create Too is looking for a project that is anything but a card. Seeing that Easter is just around the corner, I thought I would make up an Easter Egg Holder and Easter Basket. Both my projects were created using my Cricut Explore Air, The basket uses an adorable SVG file from Dream Tree called, Easter Adorables Bundle - Mr. Bunny Basket. The bundle includes 3 fabulous patterns or you can just purchase Mr. Bunny separately. (I always buy the bundle). Dream Tree includes an image file and assembly video with all their designs. I inked the paper edges with distress ink and used papers from my stash.

The single egg holder SVG file comes from Digital Gems called Bunny Egg Holder *(Note: Gemma also sells the bunny bundled with a penguin, sheep, and duck. In total, she currently has 16 egg holders available and trust me, you will want them all. She also carries a series of lollipop holders as well). So far I have made 5 of the different critters using the suggested sizes DG proves for the foil cream eggs, but I have a child under 2 so I enlarged the bunny to fit the refillable plastic eggs and added a marshmallow peep. I inked the paper edges and added a large pom-pom tail.

Both of these projects turned out super cute and I can't wait to give them to the kids (hopefully the Corona Virus Lockdown will be over by then.)

Speaking about the Covid-19 virus, our design team leader, Angie (healthcare) and her husband (trucker) are both working during this trying time. I wish to thank them and all the people who are the "front line" for their service!

This month's challenge runs from Friday, April  3rd to Friday, April 24th, 2020
