Easter Basket

Cricut Imagine Blossom

Easter 2010


For this project the basket,chick, egg and the bows are from the Easter 2010 Cricut cartridge. The flower is from the Paisley cartridge. I used the Blossom Imagine cartridge for the patterns and colour.

The basket was printed and cut @ 5.9. The pattern I used can be found on page 9 in the Blossom handbook. I used a high tack tape to assemble the basket.

The chicks were printed and cut @ 1.5. Yellow for the chicks I used the color palette from the Blossom cartridge (darker shade). I inked around the edge of the chicks with Vera Color 11 Canary. For the chicks eye I adhered a small piece of dark pink card at the back of the cutout.The chicks are adhered to the basket with pop dots.

The bows were printed and cut @ 1. I also used the Blossom color palette for the pink color. I adhered a Kaisercraft Rhinestone to each bow.

The eggs were printed and cut @ 1. Pattern for the eggs is on page 8 (Blossom handbook).

I inked around the edge of each egg using Vera Color 34 Orchid. The eggs are glued flat to the basket. Please note that I adhered the eggs to the basket first then I adhered the chicks.

For the flower I used the image page 27 ( Paisley handbook). The flower was printed and cut @ 1.6. To make the flower I cut out 2 shapes. I printed one cut using the yellow from the color palette Blossom cartridge. The other I printed using the same pattern as the basket. For the centre of the flower I used the yellow from the color palette. To finish off the flower I threaded some coloured string through the button and tied it. I adhered the button to the flower using a glue dot. I glued the flower flat onto the handle.

To finish off the basket I scrunched up a piece of A4 white printing paper and placed that into the basket. On top I have some pink paper shred.
