Our Creative Corner Challenge

Hello & Happy Saturday!

Hope your all enjoying a nice weekend.
Hubby is out cleaning up Winky for a car show tomorrow here in Joplin he wants to attend and i'm doing some laundry while trying to figure out something to make with the spare ribs for supper! LOL Sometimes ya just run out of idea's!

Anyways, I got my project ready for today's Our Creative Corner Blog. Vicki is the hostess this week and she challenged us to make a 3D Easter Project. Absolutely no cards! I really wasn't into making a basket of any kind because I have so many baskets & clear pails in my stamp room from over the years that I have made the kids and once the candy is gone they hand it back to mom. I looked thru some of what I have stashed and found these adorable little containers that I purchased after Christmas offline. Bo Bunny makes these. Take a look at what they look like before you alter them.

So, I thought, WOW, I could fill these with some Easter M&M candies and decorate the package for each of the kids this year for Easter and maybe add some money to the backside of it or even attach a small card. The idea's could be endless!
So, here is my finished 3D Easter project....

Really hard to take a photo of these because the lights reflect off of them but you get the general idea. WooHoo! I'm likin' this a whole bunch that I have to go make more! :)

Our Creative Corner Challenge Project:

Stamps: Bunny from Rubber Stampede
Ink: Memento Black, Copic Markers
Cardstock: Almost Amethyst, Pink Pirouette, PTI White, DSP from Moxxie
Accessories: Circle & Circle Scallop Nestibilities, Martha Stewart Doily Border Punch, Pink Pirouette Grosgrain, Pearl Brad, Kaiser White Pearls, Scor Tape

That's all for me today!
Thanks for hoppin' by & have a great day!
