Hellooooo everyone! and a huge welcome to my newest followers, hope you can stay a while and that you enjoy what you see!
I'm here today to show you my midway reminder for
which as you all know by now is.....
Easter Tilda with at least one egg!
If you are anything like me you will be spoiled for choice with all the gorgeous Easter Tilda's both old and new and I chose to use a slightly older Tilda this time to decorate an Easter basket......
There are so many basket templates and tutorials out there, just google paper basket templates and take your pick. I think this one is called a diaper fold basket and I covered the sides and handle using Cosmo Cricket - Material Girl paper (well I think it is anyway - some of my paper has got jumbled up so forgive me if I've got this wrong!) The tag is a Magnolia DooHickey with some cheesecloth tied at the top. (Looks like I've spelt Easter wrong, it made me look twice when seeing it on the photo, but it's just how I've written it! Phew - that was a relief lol)
The fancy cut edge on the handle is created using an SU punch.
As you can see I've not only got Tilda holding an egg but I also filled my basket with these fun plastic eggs from Hobbycraft and I'll be filling them with small chocolate eggs for my kids and hiding them in the garden this Easter hehe!
I coloured Tilda with newly hatched chick using my trusty DI's, then machine stitched her onto some Kraft card. The layers beneath this are cheescloth, nestie shape labels sixteen covered with more DP (sanded edges) and nestie lacy circle (Kraft). Flowers are WOC, leaves are nestie foliage. The pin and ribbon are from my stash and I hung the whole thing from the big bow using SU linen thread.
