Easter Tubes

I absolutely love Easter paper. Those little bunnies and chicks are just so cute!

Unfortunately, I never seem to have really good Easter photos to scrapbook. So, I have learned to improvise.

Instead of scrapbooking Easter photos, I used the Easter papers to make these adorable little holiday gifts:

Aren’t they adorable filled with Starburst Jelly Beans?!

I used papers by Three Bugs in a Rug and Best Creation Inc. to make them. Then, I added some My Mind’s Eye Twine, ribbon and little Peeps cutouts made with a Lifestyle Crafts die. (Click on the photo for a larger version).

For the tops, I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die. Before I cut out the flowers, I used a Wendy Vecchi technique and Ranger’s Glue and Seal to adhere the papers to Clearly for Art by Studio 490. Then, I cut them out and heated them with a heat tool. While warm, they can be molded in any way you desire and when they cool, they retain their shape no matter what. It’s a really neat technique that I have used a lot recently. Check out Wendy’s blog for more information.

Here’s one of the flower tops: 

I used a bit of Distress Ink and a brad for the center.
