the Playroom of the WMS forum. You can check out all the details here. This month's theme is Easter!
My Easter project is a little paper nest I made with a scalloped circle, filled with little strips of cardstock, yummy Cadbury Eggs topped with a little bird and a message for the receiver! The sentiment is from Spring Baskets.
Basically, you cut a large scalloped circle (mine is 4" diameter), emboss it with an embossing folder (I used my Tim Holtz Checkerboard folder), glue a 1 3/4" circle of cardstock in the center, cut to the circle every 5th scallop ( I cut some every 5th and some every 6th as my circle was a different size than qbees but it didn't seem to matter!), run some Tombow glue along the edge, overlap the cut edges matching the scallops at the top, and hold 5 seconds till it sticks!
I actually made mine to sell at an Easter Sale at my church so I bagged them up in flat bottom clear bags with a little basket shred under the nest. I folded down the top, punched two holes and tied wrinkled seam tape through the holes. Then I attached my little bird with his message above the ribbon using score tape to be sure it stayed on. (it's so hard to get a good pic of a clear shiny bag!)
