Last week I posted some Berry Baskets that I cased from the Stampin' Success Magazine. Unfortunately, they were not filled. However, while I was in Salt Lake City this past weekend, I found some wooden eggs at a local box store. After some fun decorating the eggs, I added some grass and my baskets were ready!
And a second basket with a slight variation.
Fortunately, the eggs were already white when I bought them so all I had to do was add some color. Although I used the blendabilities, I believe that the Stampin' Write Makers would also create a nice effect.
If you look closely, you will notice that one egg is decorated with a few white flowers punched from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack & a sprinkling of Pearl Basic Jewels.
The sentiment from the stamp set For Peeps' Sake was colored with the Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry & Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write Markers and then cut out with a pick found in the From the Garden Thinlits Dies.
Are you wondering about the grass in the basket? It does not look like the "normal" grass found in most Easter Baskets. This grass was also found at the Big Box Store in Salt Lake City. It comes in a mat which can be cut to get tufts of grass.
You can see where I did surgery to get the grass for my baskets. Here is another view.
After trimming around the bottom of these, I ended up with single tufts of grass which is what I used in my baskets.
I may go back and trim the grass down so it is not so high.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
