Super Sweet Easter Treat Basket

Really Reasonable Ribbon Hop, Hop, Hop: Super Sweet Easter Treat Basket

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Welcome to the March RRR Blog Hop!  You should be coming here full of inspiration from Karen’s lovely blog.  If you get off track, you can find the complete hop list HERE.  With Easter right around the corner, I’ve created a super sweet Easter treat basket using ribbons from the March Spring Rainbow of Color Ribbon Assortment.

These lovely ribbons look like a bed of beautiful spring tulips, don’t they?

Sweet Vintage Style Easter Cards in a Basket

What’s in the Super Sweet Easter Treat Basket?

Hello Spring Flowering Dogwood Card for Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Heartfelt Creations February Alumni Hop!  You should have arrived here from Vicki’s lovely blog. I think we are all dreaming about spring right now, and this Hello Spring Flowering Dogwood Card is filled with delicate blossoms, cheeky little birdies and soft, springtime colors.

Hello Spring Flowering Dogwood Card by Kathy Clement for Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop February 2017 Photo 1Dogwoods are my favorite spring flowers.  Here in the south, you can still find old neighborhoods where both sides of the street are lined with dogwood trees.  When they burst into bloom in the spring the beauty takes your breath away.  So when the Flowering Dogwood collection was released earlier this month, I ordered the stamps, matching dies and paper collection the very first day!  I’m so glad I did!

First, I stamped them onto white cardstock using Archival Willow ink.  Next, I die cut them with the matching die. Then,  I sponged the center and petal edges with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.  The centers are filled with Minnie Pearls and Tutu Pink Prills.  The pretty Eyelet Oval Die provides a delicate layered background.

Shabby Chic Easter Folder with Pockets

Sew Sweet Shabby Chic Easter Folder with Pockets, Tags and Goodies for RRR

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  I was playing with some gorgeous Easter Button Cards from Polly’s Paper Studio the other day, and suddenly an idea popped into my head.  How fun would it be to create an Easter Folder with pockets and tags?  And why not use a vintage sewing theme to make it really special?  So that’s exactly what I did!

Easter Folder with Pockets 01The thing that makes this Easter folder with pockets so special is the gorgeous ribbon and flowers.  I used both white crocheted lace and Vintage Pink Floral Cotton Blend Ribbon as a belly band/closure for this chunky little folder.   Since my background paper featured polka dots, I decided to add a Pouf-tacular Pearl Pink Swiss Dots Satin Bow.  This ribbon is so silky and easy to work with.

Easter Folder with Pockets 02These romantic English Roses leave me weak in the knees, especially when combined with Cosmos Daisies, Sweetheart Blossoms, and pink Bead/Berry Sprays.   I love the little Victorian boot charm perched on those spool end papers, too!

Easter Sewing Pocket Folder 03Here’s a peeky at the inside of the folder.  There’s a pocket on each side stuffed to the gills with sewing themed goodies.

Easter Sewing Pocket Folder 04The pocket on the left contains this darling lamb button card topped with more of that beautiful Pearl Pink Swiss Dot Satin Ribbon.  The little paper spool is wrapped with Pearl Pink Seam Binding ribbon that is secured with two pearl stick pins.  And those are real vintage buttons on that ribbon wrapped pink button card.  What seamstress or crafter would not love to get this parcel from the Easter Bunny?  But wait…there’s more!

Easter Sewing Pocket Folder 05The pocket on the right is decorated with a vintage style cameo, mounted on a gold tone filigree base.  And you can really see how pretty that shabby chic Vintage Roses cotton blend ribbon is in this shot, too.

Easter Sewing Pocket Folder 06I created a pocket on this tag, then stuffed it with another button card and an individually wrapped dark chocolate.  That way, no one has to nibble off the Easter Bunny’s chocolate ears!  The tag is topped with more of the Pearl Pink Swiss Dots Satin Ribbon, natural burlap string and a miniature pair of vintage scissors.  I’ve also used Bright Pink Gingham Ribbon as an accent on tags and pockets.

Who says the kids get all the Easter baskets?  Why not shake things up a little bit this year, and make an Easter Folder with pockets for the big kids?

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

kathy
