Ready for Easter

I wanted to make some Easter goodies for my market stall so after going through some of my templates I finally decided on the Pretty Petal Pocket from the very talented Lauren Meader which you can find here.

Now here is one of my easter baskets and I will end up making some more because they are so easy and I love how they are a good size for a few yummy chocolate easter eggs.

The petal pocket is made up of some of my old cardstock that is no longer available. I had quite a stash of this Glorious Green cardstock so thought I would put it to good use. The DSP is also some from my stash of assorted Tangerine Tango designs. I made the little grass pieces on the bottom with the Oval punch and scored them in half to give them a bit of a 3D look.

It's hard to tell from the pic but I have stamped one of the stamps from Sprinkles with Tangerine Tango and the sentiment is stamped in Melon Mambo over the top. The ribbons which hold the handles together are also from my stash (gotta love that!!).

So now I can say I have started with some Easter goodies!!! Now I have a lot more templates that I printed out today so hopefully over the next week or so I should have a nice little collection.

Happy stamping,

This is delightful, and what a great idea to start on Easter treats now, especially using retired c/s - of which I have lots!

This is super cute! I love the template too although I'm pretty sure I've never made one up! I really need to though I think cause they are perfect for easter goodies!

What a cute basket! I am a bit like Karen T have the template but never made it up... but you have just tempted me. Easter will creep up quickly so good on you for being organized.
