Quick instructions:

1. Make the box from a 10" square paper. Punch out a decorative edge on all sides (don't worry about the corners cause you'll cut those up). Score at 2 1/2" on all sides. Cut a slit on two sides to create the box. Use Perma tac adhesive to close it up.

2. Cut two pieces of 1 1/2" x 12" paper strip, scor at 5" points and adhere to the center of the box outside. 
3. Cut a 2 1/2" x 12" strip of paper. Punch a border on both long ends. Cut another strip of paper that is 1 x 12" in width, adhere to the center of the wider strip. Adhere the ends on the inside portion of the box to create the handle. 

4. Make two bows for each box from 3/4" wide ribbon. Adhere a brad on the center and adhere the bow on the front and back side of the box lining it up with the handle using Glue Arts Extreme square. 
5. Fill up with grass and Easter goodies!

"Happy Easter Card" 
GlueArts Designer:  Jaime Warren
I openly admit that I always struggle when creating cards.  They just don't come easily to me.  Thankfully this one came together much easier than I anticipated!


To start I took three sheets of 6x6 patterned paper (trimming the top layer to fit in the center) and, using my Glue Glider Pro, attached all three together.  I then sewed the edges together, leaving an edge of about an inch and a half.  Once I was finished with my sewing I simply trimmed until I had the card to the preferred size.
I created a layering of embellishments, starting out with a doily.  I used my PermaTac Mini's to attach the doily.
I trimmed the second layer of my embellishment "stack"  out of patterned paper and attached it to the doily.  Then, using U Cut It Foam I attached my "Happy" sticker to the top.  I attached my butterfly to the outer edge of the "Happy" sticker.  Under the embellishment "stack" I used my letter stickers to finish the "Happy Easter" sentiment.
The very last step was to punch a scalloped border for the top and bottom of my embellishment "stack."  
I hope you enjoyed my little Easter card!!
