Are you at all sick of my "vases" yet? If you follow my blog then you know I love to recycle. I "hoard" and "recycle" way too much. I think I need to simplify my life a bit. I just have such a hard time getting rid of things. My problem is every time I do get rid of something, within days, I could use it. Does that ever happen to anyone else? I know I don't need all the crafting things I have, but I like to collect. I found this challenge over at Scrapbookaholic by Abby and I thought I make this one. The challenge #2 is to create anything to do with Spring. Here is an "easter basket/vase" I made out of the giant tp rolls, a cd, craft foam, tooth picks, pipe cleaner, fake Dollar Tree grass and of course my scraps.
I cut the bunny from the gypsy wandering at 3 inches in brown and also the shadow feature in the same brown cardstock. I added pink glitter glue to his ear and the flourish that was cut out. I added a pink ribbon and bow around his neck. I cut the eggs at 2.5 inches and glued a toothpick inbetween them.
To make the basket I again covered a giant tp with brown paper and added a strip of brown paper with brads for a handle. I covered the cd with the same brown paper and hot glued the roll to the cd. I hot glued the floral foam inside the tp roll and hot glued fake grass inside. I inserted the eggs with toothpicks into the floral foam and added more eggs and the bunny on the outside of the basket.
At least I am saving the planet of some of these giant tp roll and wrecked cds. LOL I hope you enjoyed my "easter basket/vase" and hope to see you all again real soon.
As always, have a great day and god bless.
