Gift Bag with Basket Chipboard Embellishment

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today wishing you a Happy Easter.  Have you seen the assorted Easter elements available in the store?  I've used the Basket Chipboard Embellishment for today's project.


I used several spray inks from Lindy's Stamp Gang to add color to the basket.  For a more softer/subtle look, you can paint the basket with Gesso first.  Once dry, the Gesso will allow the colors to show.


While waiting for the basket to dry, I die cut some grass using Rinea Starstruck Foiled Paper and one of the dies from the Rinea 3D Hyacinth Flower die.  I also stamped and die cut the sweet peeps in their cracked eggs.


I wanted the basket to have additional color so I adhered it to Rinea Turquoise/Gold Foiled Paper.  Because an Easter basket needs grass, I adhered some die cut grass to the reverse side.  To decorate the gift bag, I die cut Rinea Lavender Starstruck Foiled Paper and adhered it to the gift bag as the background element.


The peeps were lightly colored then placed behind the basket so they appear to be popping out of the basket.


Additional grass was adhered to the top of the gift bag to finish the effect.  Finally Happy Easter was stamped and placed behind the handle of the basket.

Sweet isn't it?  Who would you give this gift bag to this Easter?

Thanks for stopping by.
