Hello Pebbles Friends! It’s Leanne here today sharing a cute little Easter Gift Idea with your favourite Pebbles Inc collection and some cardstock.
In our house at Easter time we love to create little Easter egg nests and there’s nothing simpler than using beautiful patterned paper to achieve our goals! This year I have made miniature table top decorations but they are perfect for teacher’s or neighbour gifts. Here’s how I put them together.
step 1. Gather your supplies. I have used Pebbles Inc Tealightful, green cardstock, shredded tissue paper and a silhouette cutfile.
step 2. Punch, freestyle cut or die cut a circle measuring 3″ wide. Punch a 1″ circle in the center. I have cut my circles using an electronic die cutting machine.
step 3. Using a wet adhesive, glue the shredded tissue paper to the cardstock base. Shape the tissue paper to form a nest. The hole in the centre of the cardstock creates a resting place for any chocolate eggs to sit in. Trim any excess tissue paper from the cardstock base.
step 4. Using the same coloured cardstock, punch or die cut a leaf shape. I have used a design from The Cut Shoppe. Its simplicity in design suits my Easter gift style perfectly.
step 5. Add the cardstock leaves to the tissue paper nest.
step 6. Fussy cut flowers from your favourite patterned paper collection. I have chosen Tealightful Bouquet.
step 7. Adhere the fussy cut flowers to the far side of the Easter nest.
step 8. Make your own gift tags using cardstock. I have sized these tags to 1.25″x2.5″.
step 9. Add more patterned paper to the base of the tags from the Tealightful collection and punch a small hole at the top.
step 10. Complete your Easter Nest by adding a small patterned paper bow, created by using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.
These gifts are small enough to hold in your hand but large enough to hold two mini chocolate eggs!
I can’t wait to share these with friends and family come Easter Time. Thanks for visiting today.
