SGC Die Cuts – An Easter Basket

The theme this month for the Southern Girls Challenge is Die Cuts. I decided to try an idea I’d found on Pinterest to create my own eggs.

I bought some polystyrene eggs and wrapped them in string – a cheap option but takes some patience!

Once they were all wrapped and the glue was try I cut the branches and little flowers using two dies. For the flower centres I used Liquid Pearls.

 

I picked up a cute little basket at an op shop that was perfect for the eggs, so I used my Tim Holtz Small Tattered Florals die (available at here Krafter’s Kart) to cut layered flowers and some leaves for the handle of the basket.

Finally I shredded some paper to line the basket with, finishing off my sweet little Easter basket. Die cuts don’t always have to be used in a flat project, you can curve, layer and shape them for just about any project you are working on!
