Easter Candy Toppers

Posted by on Apr. 18

Easter-Toppers-JW

I work in a Reception class at school and the staff always have a hard time thinking of some fun treats that can be made in bulk, whilst still on a budget! This year, I decided to make some Easter toppers for treat bags but they could so easily be made into cake toppers, tags etc.

Firstly, I decided on the size I would like to make my circle using my Pazzles software. I then imported the adorable cutting files by Miss Kate Cuttables, found in the Craft Room Library, Chick in Egg and Spring Bunny. The elements of the file are all separated, so you just have to spend a few moments layering all the pieces, whilst referring to the image to make your Print & Cut topper. When you are happy with your image you will need to group it and arrange it in the circle.

Mothers-Day-Bouquet

It’s Build A Bouquet week here on the blog. All this week we are sharing dimensional paper flowers. A few designs will be featured each day and by the end of the week you will have a full bouquet perfect for Mother’s Day festivities.

Now that you have a “bunch” of flowers, it’s time to wrap up this week and give your flowers a place to bloom and grow. This watering can vase makes just the spot and looks beautiful as a table centerpiece. Tuck your paper flowers inside for a gift, or place a jar in the middle of it and fill it with real flowers.

Build A Bouquet: Lily of the Valley and Tulip

Posted by on Apr. 17

It’s Build A Bouquet week here on the blog. All this week we are sharing dimensional paper flowers. A few designs will be featured each day and by the end of the week you will have a full bouquet perfect for Mother’s Day festivities.

Design Team member Heidi Edwards is joining me today as we build our bouquet. She created this beautiful Lily of the Valley, which is perfect for Easter too, by the way! I’m excited to create this bouquet for my mom for Mother’s Day. I think sometimes as paper crafters we take for granted how cool it is to make a dimensional object out of paper. People not involved in this paper world are absolutely blown away when they see what we can make out of a flat piece of paper. Give a bouquet away to someone and let them think you are a paper magician!
