Feliz Pascua / Happy Easter

Happy Easter, there is some spring cleaning at the thekraftjournal and I wanted to play.   Initially I wanted to create a wash line, with the clothes hanging in the breeze and then I saw the colors at the shabby tearoom and remembered loving the Kraft with the pastels.  And ever since I saw that image with the eggs covered in thread  at Martha Stewart I wanted to try a hand at it.   Entering it at the Easter challenge at the pink elephant and box challenge at lollipopcrafts.

Who could blame me kraft and white look so elegant but paired with pastels it is to die for cute.  Plus if you put some Webster's into that equation it is a definite DO.   I took some photos of the creative process just in case you want to do your own egg shaped box for Easter.


 I cut my chipboard piece 12 x 3 inches, if you staple the ends together, you will be able to bend it at will to create you shape.
 You need to cut your ends as if you were cutting fabric, cut in angles and bend upward
 here are your finished pieces, height for the cover is 2 inches, you need to cut your Kraft paper to 3x12 and 2 x12 to be able to cover the chipboard.
 here's my egg getting snugled in DMC thread! gorgeous green...
 I used this beautiful embroidered batiste to embellish my Kraft paper, below you will find the finished piece.
I hope you enjoy my little box and feel inspired to create an Easter garden of your own!
