I have workshops this week and I decided I would teach my class the Faux Silk technique and combine it with an Easter theme. I’m not an Easter card maker and sender, but I do love creating gift boxes for the chocolatey goodness. This time though I made a matching card for the box.
The box design is very similar to the one on page 8 of the Summer mini catalogue but with a few of my own touches added to it.
The card and some closeups of the box’s finer details
Oohh I am liking these closeups!! I might have to do that more often! LOL! The brown paper is the packing from SU deliveries. I just passed it through a shredder. The eggs are Cadbury Mini Eggs and resemble Smarties, M&M’s and the like, they are crisp shell with chocolate inside…..MMMmmmmm…YUMMY!!! I made this project with these eggs in mind. I bought them last year and just loved them. I made this project before I bought them and was hoping that they would make a comeback this year so I could use them specifically for this project. I used colours Sahara Sand, Blushing Bride and Perfect Plum.
Well I best get packing for my workshop!
