Easy Assembly Tutorial...

The bows back layer is done first. Add a dot of glue to the center of the piece. Then gently curve one end over to the middle and attach. Let dry.  Tip: I find it helpful to gently curve the arches in the bow by wrapping it around the side of a pencil.

Now add another dot of glue and fold the other side over and attach to the middle.
Glue the 3D bow layers for the tie and knot. On the tie I just glue the tops together leaving the ends loose along the bottoms adding dimension. Now add the bow second layer by placing a dot of glue to the center of the back as shown (above right) and attaching the it just on that one spot.

Flip the bow over and again apply a dot of glue in the center as shown. Fold one end of the top bow layer over and attach.
Repeat for other side of bow placing a dot of glue again to the center, folding over the other end and adhere. Next attach the bow ties to the back of bow. 

To attach the knot glue one end to the back of bow, gently wrap it around the middle and glue the other end to back.

The bows come with two options for the ties. One is the traditional straight ends and the second has the ties hanging down. Both are assembled in the same way.

Easter Inspiration from the Design Team - Part 4

 You will love these fun and cheerful treat boxes for Easter. Our design team has just been exploding with Easter inspiration and here's part 4 in this fun series of blogposts.
Cutest Box of Jelly Beans Ever!
Sue is one smart chick. She enlarged a crayon box file to hold a LOT of jelly beans and then added the Smart Chick to the front. And we love her jelly bean background paper.

Easter Egg Basket
Marlene @ Scrappin Cookie
The popular Easter egg basket got a make over by Marlene. Instead of the flower that comes in the file she decorated the egg with the chevron and doodle borders giving this little egg basket a whole new look. Then it was just a matter of personalizing with a name and adding white highlights.

Fun Spring Charm Bracelet
Remember the old "Shrinky Dinks" craft? Debb printed each jpg from the Easter stencils onto inkjet shrink film, colored them, added a hole for hanging and then shrunk them for this bracelet. Then just added little jump rings and attached to a bracelet.

Create Your Own Faux Fabergé Egg!

A Fabergé egg is a jeweled egg created by the House of Fabergé between 1885 and 1917. The first Fabergé egg was crafted for Tsar Alexander III, who had decided to give his wife, the Empress Maria Fedorovna, an Easter egg in 1885.
DT Nancy @ The Nickel Nook created her own Faux Fabergé eggs using the Paper Egg svg from MyScrapChick and they are as beautiful as the originals in my opinion. Take a look....
The egg is 2 pieces and simple to put together. After assembling the parts and inking the edges, Nancy painted a wood candle stick, inked the edges too and hot glued the egg to the top.
Check out Nancy's blog at The Nickel Nook for all the assembly details and see how she embellished her lavish paper Faberge Egg.
She loved the first one so much she had to make another and it's over the top beautiful too. 

For this one Nancy put the egg on a wood candle cup turned upside down and painted it with yellow acrylic paint. She added a bit of pink ink to the candle cup before gluing it to the bottom of the finished egg.

 Nancy's colors and choice of designer papers are so beautiful she's making the Easter bunny jealous.  See how she did her finishing touches to the tops of the egg.

Country Village House becomes an
Easter Gift Box.

These 3 Country Village House Boxes can be used for so many reasons and seasons. Mike's Easter House is all decked out in sequins and I see lots of little milk chocolate Easter eggs in the box there. This will make a great gift.

Happy Easter display using the Pop-Up Letters.

What I think is especially clever and cute is how Alma used the Bunny Feet Box in place of the letter "A". Alma was a creative part of our team last year and she has more photos of this Easter greeting on her facebook page at MyCraftasticSide.

as well as confirmation and baptisms.

Easter Inspiration with the Design Team - Part 1

Oh Oh! There are Bunnies in the Carrot Patch.

Can you imagine how tickled some grandkids would be to get these bunnies/carrots as an Easter gift from Grandma? That's a large part of the focus of Shirley's papercrafting...her grandkids. And I can imagine how special and loved that makes them feel. My grandkids all live hundreds of miles in opposite directions but maybe papercrafting cards and special treats more often like "bunnies in the carrot patch" would shorten the miles between us. You simply have to read Shirley's blog post at Scrappy Sam Designs, these little guys are just too cute.
