Cricut Cardz Challenge EASTER BLOG HOP !!!!





Hey All My Crafty Friends

Welcome to the first ever Cricut Cardz Challenge EASTER Blog Hop.  I am so excited to be apart of this design team and even more excited to be a part of this hop with some of the most talented papercrafters on the planet...

So if you have arrived here from Barbara's blog then you are in the right place... If you need to start from the beginning the click here to go directly to Mary's blog at CRICUT CARDZ CHALLENGE

Here is a blog line up just in case you get lost along the way


So for today's project it's  KID-FRIENDLY !!!! There is nothing better than sharing the love of paper crafting with kids...
 So clear out a spot and yell for the kids and CRAFT TOGETHER.. You will be glad you did !!! :0)





The project is so super simple to make.... EVEN A CAVE MAN CAN DO IT !!!!! LOL :0)


BASKET

(1) 8 1/4 x 8 1/4 piece of cardstock
Score at 2 3/4 on all four sides
Cut slits at four corners to the first score line
Corner rounder on all for corners
 Handle cut 1 1/2 x 8 inches
Punch hole to hold sides of basket and handle to basket

Easy Peasy Japanesy !!!!


CARROT BOXES

Cricut Tags Bags Boxes & More
Cake Box cut @ 5 1/2 inches
Score on score lines
Assemble using sticky tape
Green Stems ( cut with PAPER SHREDDER ...LOL) and crimped in paper crimper
Crop A dile through top of lid and feed stem through the lid

Each box holds 5 chocolate eggs or two small chocolate bunnies !!!
I think these would make great EASTER treats for your next classroom or bible school class ...


Well this is a blog hop and no blog hop would be complete without some BLOG CANDY

I decided for this blog hop to make the blog candy a SURPRISE just like the surprises we get in our EASTER BASKETS..

In order to win the SURPRISE BLOG CANDY you have to leave a comment with an email address in this post also you don't have to become a follower of my blog but if you would like just click the link on the right hand side of the page...There's always something going on here so you don't want to miss out on all the fun ... :0)


*** Due to shipping rates I can only ship to US and Canada Address ***

I will use random.org to choose my winner on FRIDAY APRIL 8, 2011



Thank you so much for stopping by and spending some time with me today....

Now on to the next stop along the hop....The super talented RUTHIE just click HERE and your on your way.

Until Next Time

Hugs & Scraps
