Connie Babbert's blog. She is so creative!
For my first project, I took a look at the Good as Gold card kit, free with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-bration. It creates 8 festive cards with lined envelopes. Often with kits and freebies, we love the little
project it was designed to make, but what else can we do with it? As an alternative, you could create this adorable little birdhouse using the Mini Milk Carton die, perfect for filling with little goodies as a favor at the Easter dinner table.
I got to thinking about a table center for Easter dinner, and all this gold led me to golden eggs. I blew the yokes out of three medium eggs, covered them with gold glitter, and nestled them in a little bird's nest. I love crafting with egg shells, because the projects will last a long time (if the kitten doesn't get to them, of course). I also created this for Mix-Ability challenge #40, Stick It To Me, Darling!
