Hi there! It's Product Spotlight day at the DeNami Design Blog! Today we're featuring an ADORABLE image for the upcoming Easter holiday, Chickie Easter Basket F174.
I LOVE these chickies with the bunny ears---soooo cute! With Easter right around the corner, I thought it would be FUN to create some Easter egg/treat holders. Here's what I came up with:
I chose three brightly colored plastic eggs that I had leftover from last Easter, measured around the eggs and cut strips of white cardstock that were one inch longer than my measurements. Then I measured in a half inch from each end of each strip and made a light mark with a pencil. At the one end's pencil mark I cut a slit from the top down to the middle. At the other end's pencil mark I cut a slit from the bottom up to the middle. The slits then interlock to form a loop for the egg to sit in.
I stamped the Chickie Easter Basket F174 image three times onto white cardstock, colored them with Copic Sketch Markers, and cut them out. Then, I used my Quickie Glue Pen to add some Citrone Glitter (DeNami Design) to the chickies.
For two of the eggs, I used images from the Easter Stamp Set PF15 to decorate the strips that wrap around each egg. For the pink egg (above) I embossed the strip with polka dots and attached a strip of lime ribbon (DeNami Design) for a simple design. Here are some closeups:
I hope you like my creation for today! Just think of all of the different ways you could decorate these little holders---so many possibilities!

Note: I didn't give measurements in my post because I used plastic eggs which come in a number of sizes and may differ from the size of real eggs. However, if you're interested in knowing my exact measurements or have any questions about how to make these holders, feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be happy to share more details with you!
