Easter Packaging

These were the gifts I made for each of the ladies attending the Easter card class today.
Lovely little packages for a single Easter Egg.  These are not entirely my idea, I have seen quite a few similar designs on Pinterest and the web, not sure where all the originals came from, but I thank those talented ladies for their inspiration.
These are a hybrid of several. They start as a single 2" strip cut across the width of an A4 Sheet, scored at 9 and 12 cm then punched each end with the scallop tag punch. The oval frame is embossed and then the matching large oval punch is used to create the windows. ( I tried front window only but the egg sits better with 2 ) There is a little box made to match, sitting inside with a small circle punched out for the egg to sit in - you can see that in the side on shot.  I used the cute little bunny from the 'Baby 'We've Grown' set stamped in Soft Suede and coloured with the watercolour crayons. I used the 2 ovals punched out to add a colour frame for the bunny tag. Cardstock is Tempting Turquoise and Pumpkin Pie.
This gorgeous ribbon really adds a little something special but it is not Stampin' Up!, I found this at the wonderful "Needlework Cottage" in Rockhampton.  Di and Sloane have a fabulous range of all things beautiful, I may just have to go back for the green and hot pink!! ( you can check them out on Facebook)
thanks for looking, Liz
