Crafty Secrets "Spring" Challenge

February 16, 2009


Once again our talented DT leader has challege all the Crafty Secrets DT members to make something using stamps or images for a card, layout ... altered project with a "Spring" or "Easter" theme.


For this wonderful challenge I covered a wooden bag from Michael's with paper from the Pastel Paper Designs of Crafty Secrets. I then got some green quilling paper that was 1/4" wide and used a fringer to cut strips through out the entire length of the paper. Used about 4 strips of quilling paper. This was glued to the bottom on the bag. Stamped the flower patch from the Bird Lover's Stamp Set 4x on white cs and colored in the images with various Copic markers. Cut the flower patch out and adhered the bottom portion underneath the green fringed paper all around the bag. Once that was done I used some stickers from Heatwarming Vintage sticker set -"Spring Joys". Covered the sides and edges of the handle with yellow paper frills from doodlebug and added some buttons around it. To finish off the Spring bag I added a yellow ribbon around the bag. For the inside of the bag I got several strips of yellow, green and purple quilling paper, run it through the paper crimper and tossed it inside the bag and added some Cadbury Mini Eggs.


Go check out the blogs of the other DT members. They have made some other "Spring" or "Easter"themed projects to share with you all.
