Hello Good Friday! Hope my friends are relaxing spiritually and physically.
I didn't have time during the week to prepare for a Friends with Flair post (Unity Stamp Co.)... not that I did not make any project, but posted them all and I like to post specifically for FWF and not repost anything. So, thank God could make these to show before the linky is closed :).
I'm in a recycling mode lately. Economic situation at home and country is not very healthy, so whatever I can do to ease the expenses, I do. So for the Easter "mini baskets", I went with these soap boxes I've been reserving for a project.
I covered the first one with paper.
Added a border to help hide imperfections...
And made this fun front cover... Just cut some strips and inked the edges...
Then fixed to the left with tape while arranged alternately facing back.
Then glued the base also facing back.
Final result was this "basket" like cover. I also hand cut some grass and embellished as shown.
Then I went for a second one. Covered with paper, added the borders and embellished with flowers and the sentiment.
I love how delicate this one resulted.
And finally a third one... covered with washi tape... knowing will be transparent but this is just the base. I would cover then the see through sections with circles of patterned papers, little flowers and sequins.
Just need to put some candy and eggs inside... Ready for a Happy Easter! Glad I could do this and be able to link to Unity... Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win.
