Another Easter project kept simple due to the mass production going on this year…. nearly 50 of these were made here last week… that is a lot of Easter Egg & Treats going on!!
This ended up as a great sturdy little basket… not because of using the stapler to assemble but because there is both paper and card on all the sides – and the “spare” 2 x straight sided card strips cut out with the die were also glued together – and used as the handle.
Little thing – huge difference! Actually ended up strong enough for Cream Eggs etc or even Mini Eggs…
We also added a quick insert to the inside to hold up the Easter Egg… didn’t want them flopping over….
Just a 9cm card square (3 1/2”) – scored at 1 cm (3/8”) all round. And punched with the 1 3/4” Circle Punch ( tip – you have to fold over one scored side to get the punch to centre on the internal square!)
And just finished off with a Bow Builder Punch bow…simples… they all looked fab!!
But we did have a laugh…. at some point we realised that if you turned the egg over so that the thinner end is at the bottom… then you looked like you had bought a medium sized egg rather than a small egg!!! Frugal chocolate giving!!!
I hasten to add that the egg in the photo is the “right way up”
