Easter Tree

Happy Easter for the last time this year.  Everything is happening so fast and I luckily enough, missed April Fool's Day.  This year is definitely on speed dial.  Well I took my pics of my very first Easter tree and stay tuned as I thought it might be a nice gift to make for teacher presents (for next year).  I normally make melting moments and put them in a box (I have made) but I think I will mix it up next year.  I am going to try and make it over the holidays and do a late Easter post.  But for now here is my tree...
 I have taken lots of angle pictures as the branches were long and hard to get it all in.  I drew a picture of an egg and then cut out four pieces and folded them in half and taped them together with a little bling at the end.  I used twine to tie them to the branches. 
 The eggs are the only paper craft I used on the tree but I will be making a whole paper craft one up to show you.

My family were impressed with my first effort so I can only get better from here. 
Happy Easter again and thanks for stopping by...

Easter daisies

Hi everyone,
I hope the start of your Easter has been a safe and happy one.  Today I am going to show you some Easter daisies that I made.  I did them in two different colours to brighten up our room.  I'll have to show you the Easter tree I made (tomorrow), loving it!!!  But on to today..
 Some typical white ones.  I punched out some large scallops and then cut them through to the centre leaving enough gap to add the spiral centre.
 These ones were done a little differently, I used the largest circle punch and kept the petals further apart, not really sure if I like these ones as much!!
My bunch together in my stunning vase/glass
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day....

Beautiful Easter Egg Banner

Hi again,
I have to show you the prettiest Easter Banner I have seen.  I love, love, love it.  I think I found it on pinterest but here is the link for you.  Some of my photos are not so clear but I just had to try and show you them individually.  This was so quick and easy to make and I used an old book for the banner and all the gorgeous colours from Stampin' Up.  Give it a go and brighten up your room for Easter.  I would like to make a Easter Tree and hopefully I can before the weekend.  I'll have to see how I go and you will be one of the first to know.

My Easter Banner that till be part of my Easter decorations.  Thanks for stopping by and hopefully I will see you tomorrow..... 
Oh by the way, she has the pattern on her blog, I made that size and than shrank it down to a smaller one as well.

Punch Art Easter Bunnies With Egg

I know, it has been so long and I am sorry.  Life just got a little hectic for me and I know I have been saying that every time I get on here but I have truly missed coming on.  I have made these bunnies before and seeing I had to make so many, 30 (for a class of students) I didn't go all out like I have done before.  The funny thing is, it still took me two days (with a few interruptions along the way) to complete them.  I had seen on pinterest where someone had put a magnet on the back and I liked that idea so hopefully the kids will take the egg off carefully and keep the bunny.
Don't tell me any different, I want to at least think they will have them for a day!!!

 This is them all carefully put in a box ready to go to school, I meant to take a pic before I put them in the box!!!!
 Just showing the magnet on the back
And hopefully a clearer picture.
I do have a few other things to show you before Easter so I will get on here again tomorrow night.  Thank you for stopping by and have a lovely evening/day.....
