Last night as my daughter and I were headed out to meet some folks for dinner, she was telling me about her day. At one point she just stopped and turned to me and asked, “Can we make something for some of the people at school? They’re always so nice and helpful. I’d like to give them something at the end of the year.” I replied that of course we could and why wait until the end of the year? After all, it’s nice to receive an unexpected thank you or any other kind of gift without it being an occasion. I’m proud of her for thinking to do this.
So with Easter coming, I got up this morning to create something that you could easily make for your table or the older “kids” that no longer receive a basket.
I started with My Digital Studio and created the scene that I wanted to put on the Mini Muslin Bag. It’s cute and EASY!
So let me tell you what digital items I used:
- a bunny from Little Additions
- eggs from Easter Blossoms
- grass created with the Grass Punch
- chevrons from Chevron punches and filled with
- Beau Chateau designer paper
I used the color matching tool for the eggs so that the blues would match the blues in the Beau Chateau paper. I layered two grass punches and filled them with Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive. And my bunny is Soft Suede. I’m loving him the last few weeks. He’s been used repeatedly.
When I was happy with my composition, I printed it out on transfer paper. After trimming it to fit the Mini Muslin Bag, I ironed it on. The only thing left to do was remove the plain drawstring and replace it with a piece of Pool Party seam binding. I had a little oopsy when I went to melt the end of the seam binding so that it would not fray. I burned it instead. After looking at it a second, I decided I liked it as it matched the color of the bunny. So, I purposely burned the second end. But, I’m not recommending this as the seam binding is flammable. Don’t want any crafting accidents!
We’ll be sending this in to school before the end of the week, filled with some sort of goody. I’m sure it will be appreciated, especially as there are less thank yous once the kids reach high school age.
Pull out your My Digital Studio (or purchase it if you don’t have it yet) and …
