A few times a year, I am asked to prepare a gift certificate for a dear friend by her dear mother-in-law. This time, I thought it was time to do something a little different:
There’s an Easter Egg card inside a tiny Scallop Envelope basket inside that small cello bag. It’s not particularly elaborate, but it was fun to do and something a little out of the ordinary. Here’s what’s inside:
I used the oval from the Big Shot Scalloped oval to make four egg shapes, and put them together with a brad left over from one of the SAB bundles. This one has a butterfly with vellum wings for the front cover.
The second egg has a small tag with the details on the gift. I told you she was a dear mother-in-law!!
I cut an oval out of DSP and hand-trimmed the middle out – I used that on page two above. The top and bottom pieces went on the third page with a space in the middle for the names of the generous givers.
The last page is simply decorated for Easter.
It was fun to do something unexpected – that’s the beauty of hand-made crafts, right?
