Sweet as Sugar Easter Gift Packages

Nancy here getting ready for Easter after a hiatus due to illness. It feels good to get back in crafty mode.  Working with such sweet images, colors and patterns automatically puts me in a good mood.

The Easter themed packages are destined for a group of shelter women who attend our church and these are the first two out of twelve I hope to complete.  Each contains a handheld acacia wood cross, a few chocolate kisses and a bit of paper Easter grass. Although they  include secular images, inside represents the true meaning of the season of Lent.  And…bunnies are one of God’s cutest creatures!

First up I printed the bunny from the Happy Easter Digi onto thin cardstock changing the color of the image to a soft teal using my Silhouette Studio software. I cut it out with a pierced die, then added a felt bunny tail, a flower cut from an older die and a couple of carrot clay pieces. I also printed the one of the patterns from the Happy Spring Digi Papers and then cut a strip from it. After filling the pillow shaped acrylic package, I tied a ribbon bow around it including a cross charm, then added the strip of paper and image circle.

For the second package, I printed the image from the Sugar, Sugar Digi, cut out with the same pierced circle and colored the image with Copic markers. I used another of the prints from the Happy Spring Digi Papers and tied a different ribbon around it also topped with a cross charm.

Copics: Bunny-E40, E41, E42, R10, R81; Basket-W00, E81, BG01, BG02; Eggs-YG01, YG02, Y00, Y11, R10, R81, BG01, BG02

Although the packaging is similar I want each one to be unique by changing up the images, ribbon and patterned paper. These women deserve to feel special and loved.
