I wanted to share some my display and creations for the Merry Treasures Bazaar in more detail. This was my third show and by far my most successful. I attribute that to a great deal of prep and thought that went in to how I wanted to handle virtually every aspect of my booth.
I’ve been on a Stiffy binge over the past week or so. There’s something about getting that messy and making crazy things in the process. This is the first of my projects using Stiffy, which is readily available at most craft stores.
These were just so much fun to play with. I broke out the paint, the matte medium, and the German scraps and got busy.
I’ve been trying to wrap my brain around how to create a wire birdcage. Ideas come and go, but none of them have been simple to make. I finally settled on this design using both paper and wire. I imagine any number of variation on this same theme.
I’ve had a great deal of fun playing with some paper mache eggs. I made them in to little fill-able egg containers. They are small and will easily fit in among the eggs the Easter Bunny brings.
Here are three different spring and Easter themed cupcake wrapper files for digital cutters. Finish this adorable project with some coconut grass and little tulip flower toothpicks. Almost too cute to eat. Almost!
I found the clear acrylic cabochon covers some years ago. It took me some time to figure out what they were called. They are sold for stamping and altering, so if you need to buy some, they are readily available online.
I got a little distracted yesterday by another project, so my folio tutorial is a day late. Sorry about that, but when an idea possesses me, I just have to see it through. I’ll post that one tomorrow, ok?
Here’s the folio tutorial, as promised.
This project was born out of trying to force some tulip bulbs – and failing miserably.
