Matchbox Easter Treats


Whenever I run a class I always make a treat for the people attending!  Usually I bake but sometimes I craft for everyone.  These Matchbox Easter Treats turned out so cute I had to share. 
 
 
I stayed with pastel colours in the spirit of the season.

 
With the left over card stock from the matchbox I made tattered pinecone flowers to match.

 
I used a scallop oval punch and layered some acetate for the top.
 
 
I glued down a patch of Spanish Moss and the flowers. 

 
Each wee box is stuffed with 4 Lindor Eggs!  Oh my so yummy.

 
I made a few with these robins eggs too.  I thought they might be cute!
 
 
Here's the class I will be teaching, Birds of a Feather.  Where the attendees will get their Matchbox Easter Treats and make some fun cards.  There's a couple spots left!
 
 
It's going to be a fun class and I can't wait to hand these out.  OH... I didn't sneak one Lindor chocolate, not one!  I'm off sugar:(

  3. Your matchbox treat boxes are beautiful.
    I bet you can make those pinecone flowers in your sleep now :)
    Looks like an awesome class, plus they get a treat?! I'm surprised your class isn't filled up and more crafters knocking down the door to get in.
    I am in awe that you are still off of sugar. I don't think I could do that.

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…

Ink the edges of the Sizzix Vintage Tidings with Distress Oxide Black Soot.  Add a touch of shimmer to these Sizzix Mini Holiday Greens cuts.  Apply Glue n' Seal with a paint brush to the tips of each greenery and coat with a dusting of Distress Stickles Dry Glitter Clear Rock Candy.  Start to build and layer your cuts and embellishments.
