Easter's on it's way...

Pin It
It's the 6th of the month so that means that us Limelight Chicks have a project for you!
This month it's Easter Baskets!

I have TWO projects to share with you AND a fabulous promo starting TODAY at
Limelight Papercrafts!



1st up is this little paper basket and notecard.
I saw something similar recently on a blog and can't find it now for the life of me so I just did my own thing.

I cut a piece of dp from the Basic Grey Urban Prairie 6x6 pad into six 1 inch strips.
I stacked them on top of one another, punched a hole at each end, attached Bittersweet brads...and then pulled the papers apart until I had a basket shape.



I used the 5/8" textured ribbon in rose/pink for the handle and bows.

Next up is a coaster basket!



Again, I used papers from the Basic Grey Urban Prairie 6x6 pad.
For some sparkle on the 'front' I added rhinestones to the butterflies on the paper!



I tied the coasters together with sheer white polka dot ribbon.



The handle is pink satin scalloped edge ribbon attached to the coasters with Bittersweet brads.



EASTER EGG PROMOTION at Limelight Papercrafts!

With each and every order (regardless of amount) through Easter
Sunday, Limelight will be sending out a plastic Easter egg filled with
goodies!
They could be filled with ribbon, stickers, Cat’s Eye ink
pads, small stamps, buttons, Dew Drops, Shimmerz, and more!
A few will have some “big prizes” written on slips of paper!
There will be no rhyme or reason to which egg goes in an order.
We’ll keep it as random as humanly possible!
