All that Stickles "Think Spring" Blog Hop

Welcome to the Think Spring Blog Hop brought to you 
by the All that Stickles design team!

The All that Stickles DT is happy to share with you a variety of spring-themed projects created using Stickles, of course! Now that Valentine's Day is over and we're in the final weeks of winter (finally!) it's time to THINK SPRING! :)

If you've come from the All that Stickles blog, you're in the right place. If you've just come across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit All that Stickles.

For my project, I created a fun little Easter basket. I'm thinking it just may inspire some place holders for this year's Easter dinner!

The box was cut from the Cricut Artiste cartridge using solid purple DCWV cardstock, it stands about 2.5" high without the handle. I was able to adhere the entire basket together using a Zig glue pen. Inside the basket is simple Easter grass that can be found at craft stores and even most grocery stores this time of year. If for whatever reason you can't find Easter grass or are making the project out-of-season, shredded paper works well, too. :)

The plastic egg is from our stash of Easter eggs we use to do an egg hunt every year. Can't decide if I'm going to use real hardboiled eggs or plastic eggs for the placeholders, though. Thinking that I could put adhesive monogram letters on hardboiled eggs, or have fun decorating the plastic eggs and putting some candy inside. Whatever I come up with I'll be sure to share it!

The handle of the basket is embellished with Candi that I Stickled up using Firefly and Orange Peel Stickles. The Candi pieces are also placed on small pop dots to give them a bit of demention. The entire project probably didn't even take twenty minutes to make (other than waiting for the Stickles to dry), so I could definitely whip up a bunch of these for Easter!
