Hippity Hoppity Easter basket and cards

Hi everyone and it's so nice to see you again on the Quietfire digital blog.  Today i have a few fun projects that i made up with the new Quietfire Bunnyville digital papers, tags and washi tapes.  I printed up lots of these pretty designs and had a blast making up some pretty things to give away for Easter this year.  Grab a cup of tea and join me for a quick tutorial.

For my projects i printed up 1 page of each of the scrapbook paper prints on my 8 1/2 x 11 printer. The papers will be slightly smaller and have a white border around them.  I also found that when you print them you can also change the scale of the print and make it smaller and print a 6x6 size.  You will have to play with your printer but this is an amazing find because you can also have all those adorable little prints just for smaller things and for cards.  I was so excited to find this little trick.

To make the baskets i cut a strip of the Washi tape to make the top border.  Then i cut 5 strips of paper that were 3/4 inch by 10 inches.  I glued them side by side at the bottom edge of the border strip and then repeated the bottom edge of the strip again criss crossing the papers to make the basket weave.

Then i glued it together at the ends to make a circle with strong double sided adhesive or you can hot glue gun it too.  The handle is another small strip of the dotted paper or you can even use some of the Washi borders.  I added lots of easter grass and white satin bows to the sides and it's all ready to stuff with lots of easter treats to give away.  

The bunny card is made with the bunny print from the Scrapbook papers and i also reprinted the stripe in a 6x6 size to go under the Washi tape border.  You can also die cut your own flowers from the paper and then you really have a fun piece of art to give away.  Perfectly matched and you can make them for everyone... i really love that.

And for my second card i shrunk down the paper again on the zig zag print to a 6x6 size and added a little strip of the Washi paper across the front and a pretty flower and a ribbon to match.  The backround print is a tiny green dot.  My favorite thing about the papers is that the colors go perfect together and you can print another piece if you mess up.  So go ahead and have fun and let yourself be creative.  You never know what you might come up with.

Thanks so much for stopping by to get a few more digital ideas and be sure and stop by the digital store for the Washi tapes and tags too.
