Easter Express Collection: Carrot Boxes by Wendy Sue Anderson

Hi Doodlebug friends!  It's Wendy Sue here today, sharing one of my most favorite Easter projects EVER!

I absolute adore the new "Easter Express" collection and I knew as soon as I opened it up that it was going to make some super cute little treat containers for some friends!

I used a "carrot box" cut file, along with some "petite prints" paper to create the carrot shaped boxes.

 The tops are tied with chunky doodle twine, then I added some shaped clips to the bows - I think they look like sweet little charms!  I also added a small strip of coordinating doodle tape to each box, about 1/3 of the way up from the bottom!

The tags are simple die-cut circles from various papers from the 6x6 paper pad, and embellished with lots of sweet animal stickers!

I used foam adhesive behind the stickers, because I just love that teensy bit of dimension it adds.

Of course, I had to fill them up with some of my favorite Easter candies before I gave them away:

Wouldn't these be cute tucked into an Easter basket?  I think they would!

Do you like to create your own packaging for treats?  I'd love to see what you're giving away this Easter - please leave a link in the comment section below!

Happy Easter!
♥ Wendy Sue

Easter Express Collection: Easter Egg Card and Gift Bag With Kathy

Hi Everyone!  It's Kathy today with a sweet shaker card and gift bag I created using the new Easter Express!  Take a peek...

I started with this cut file for the adorable little egg-shaped bag.  I used the flowered side of the Chickie Babies paper for the box and decorated it with a bunny from the Odds & Ends, and one of the word strips from the Springtime Stripes Paper.

Just fill it with some Easter grass and some treats and it's the perfect little gift!  I searched for the perfect card to accompany this box, and ended up making one of my own!  I created a Silhouette file for the shaker card below...

This card reminds me of those diorama sugar Easter eggs from when I was little!  I decorated the inside with another bunny and some flowers from the Odds & Ends and added some Doodlebug Sequins for the shakers!  Now something for you!  I'd love to share the Silhouette cut file for this card with you!  You can download it from my cut-files page for free here!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Easter Express Collection: Easter Mini Album by Caroli Schulz

Hello everybody! Caroli here and today I want to show a little mini album I made using fabulous Easter Express collection. I adore this collection, it's so fresh and funny, perfect for scrapping pictures of your little ones.

As you can see, I used such a simple structure with 2 pieces of cardboard wrapped in patterned paper and linked by a piece of textured cardstock. The pages on the inside are wire binded.

I mixed pages with different sizes and shapes, so that to make the mini more interesting. Also, I added some vellum pages and printed my journaling there, I think this looks cute!

I like to decorate vellum pages using stickers, sprinkles and also some tiny flowers I fussy cut from patterned paper, love these tiny flowers to bits!

I really liked how this mini came out, the colors in this collection are so vibrant and coordinate so well, it was so easy to work with it!  Hope you liked this projects and maybe get some inspiration to get your scrap on, thank you for stopping by!! XOXO!
