More Telford swaps

It was great to meet up with my upline Jenny and lots of the Bloomin' Buds in Telford last weekend.

As well as doing a shoebox swap we were tasked with making a 3D gift for the rest of the group - whatever we wanted, however simple or complicated we wanted to make it.

You can tell when I started browsing the internet for inspiration:

I just had to do these!!  The link for you to make them is here.

I chose this because it appealed to me and I thought it was different to making a box.  I also thought it seemed fairly straightforward - which it is - but making 15 took a small amount of time!!!

I stocked up with creme eggs before Easter to make sure I had some - they have been tempting my husband ever since!

Materials used:
Crushed Curry card & ink
Pumpkin Pie card
Elegant Eggplant ink
Whisper White & Black card
Pansy punch
1" square punch
1 1/4" circle punch
1 3/4" circle punch
3/8" circle punch
3/4" circle punch
Extra-large oval punch
Itty Bitty Banners stamp set & Framelits

This is what 15 look like:
Thanks to Amanda at the Craft Spa for the tutorial - I love them!


  1. Absolutely brilliant Jill....a great way of giving an Easter gift


  2. Oh wow! I love these quirky birds and what a great way to give a cream egg. I can imagine making 15 took some time but well worth the effort as they are so appealing. Thanks for the link.

  3. I so wish I had seen the 15 all together at Telford Jill.... That would have WOWed me to death..., LOL! Two of my ladies did all the punching for 11 each but I never saw them all made up together! So glad you liked my little chicky!
