Easter is coming!

Good morning Crafters! I don't know about you, but time is just rocketing by and the upcoming Easter holiday is coming so fast, I could barely get ready for it! I thought I would share two of the projects I made with an Easter theme! The first is an Easter Egg and the second is a card to give to a loved one!


This Easter Egg began as a simple paper mache egg from Hobby Lobby for under $1. I covered the egg in Vintage sheet music pieces that I tore and adhered with Mod Podge. I will warn you, this was a MESSY project. I molded the pieces of sheet music to the egg constantly covering with Mod Podge as I went and my hands were covered. :) It was a happy kind of messy though! Once the outer layer of Mod Podge was dry, I sprayed brown glimmer mist into my hand (another kind of happy messy) and I rubbed it into the egg. Then I used some pastel ribbon and a beautiful button given to me from my friend Kristin to complete my egg!

The second project I have to share today is an Easter card. I used Bazzill cardstock as the base for the card. I used Cosmo Cricket papers and diecuts for the card as well. I used Suede Glimmer mist to try and age the vintage sheet music on the card and paper. Once things looked the way I liked, I applied a small amount of glue and used my sewing machine to add a homespun feel. The diecuts were applied after I sewed the layers together and I adhered all materials to my card using Yes glue! I used my Marvy flower punches to add the finishing touches to the card, making flowers out of my vintage sheet music. I added a Prima pearl to my flowers.
Thank you for coming by and having a look today!
