CC&M Blog Hop - St. Paddy's Day and Easter!

Welcome to the Creative Cuts and More blog hop! If you came here from the Die Cut Diva blog, you are on the right track. If not, please start at the Die Cut Diva blog so you don't miss anything! Today we are showcasing projects with an Easter and/or St. Patrick's Day theme.

Here is my sweet little Easter basket made from the Basket with Handle die cut. This reminds me of the cute little baskets my mom gets me every year - yes, she still gives me an Easter basket every year. LOL She always has a cute little stuffed Easter bunny and lots of yummy candy in the basket. I did something a little bit different by placing one of my precious stone eggs in this basket. The egg is pure alabaster, and I love how this looks in this sweet little pink basket.

My next project is something that would be fun to give to a kid. I used the Butterfly Box die cut to create a cute little bunny and egg scene. This is the top view of the box - the handles lock together and look like a butterfly.

On this side, you see the boy bunny looking at the eggs.

On this side, you see the girl bunny with the bow on her ears and tiny butterflies flitting around.

Wouldn't a kid love to open this box and find it full of Easter candy? Mmmmm!

I hope you enjoyed these projects today. Now it's time to hop along to Noelle's blog to see what she's created. If you get lost anywhere along the way, you can always come back here to go back to the Die Cut Diva blog to find the next stop.
