Easter bags + a tutorial!

Hello crafty friends! I hope your week is going well?
With Easter just around the corner, I thought it might be fun to show you how I made my Easter baskets, for our Easter hunt, planned to happen during our annual Easter brunch. They are sturdy, and a great way to hold Easter eggs & candy from the ‘Easter Bunny.’
Easter Bags by Kim Watson

Supplies: 
KimWatson+Easter tags+FancyPants
Cutting the journal cards down in size into tag shapes, makes them less bulky to attach to the bags once decorated. I used a large alpha for the beginning letter of each child’s name, an appropriate decorative shape, a little sentiment label & a stamped sentiment to complete the tags. The rough twine tie & mini staples, add great texture!
KimWatson+Easter Pinwheels+FancyPants
Next I made each child a pretty pinwheel. They are super easy to put together. Cut a 4×4″ square of patterned paper, slit along the diagonals & fold. Attach to a paper straw with a large brad & add some curly paper strips to make them more festive.  
Easter Bag Tutorial by Kim Watson
KimWatson+Easter Bag tutorial+FancyPants

Instructions:
  • Take a variety of 12×12 pieces of patterned paper
  • Fold either side to the centre 6″ mark
  • Turn 90 degrees & score at 4.5″ & 7.5″
  • Fold along all score lines
  • Adhere top folds
  • Folding each side up, press gusset at 45 degrees, it’ll fold there automatically
  • Cut x2= 2.25″x6″ strips & adhere along front top edge of bag
  • Cut 3/4″x12″ bag handles
  • Adhere in place & stitch either side of the band at the top of the bag to make them extra secure
  • Your bag is ready to be filled

I hope this tutorial inspires you to get started on your Easter crafting projects? These bags were so rewarding to create & I know each child who receives them will love them as much as I do.
Happy crafting friends!!

He Questions Everything by Kim Watson

Don’t you love that every month the Hip Kit Club scrapbooking kits are perfectly balanced for either BOY or GIRL themed projects? My starting point for this page was firstly the FEBRUARY mood board, as well as Ashley’s FREE cut files. I chose a narrow color palette of cobalt, yellow, teal & aqua for a trendy feel; the results are fabulous….& obviously very BOY!!
He Questions Everything by Kim Watson

My son Max is smart, sassy & always question life & the universe! He never takes things at face value & always analyses everything he is faced with. Sometimes it really drives me crazy, but I do know that God gave him his super charged brain for a unique purpose, so we strive to help him embrace being different, & be OK with who he is. This memory was worth scrapping & I wanted the page to make a STATEMENT in his album.
What better way to make a statement, than with the super, fun, bold, stripe from Amy Tan as seen in the February kits? It made the best base for my page! Don’t you just love the watercolor vibe she has going on in this collection??

Next came my title, I wanted it to be a funky mixture of the cool fonts & die cuts included in the  February kits. When working with Ashley’s FREE cut files, I decided to try something different. I opened the background cut file & isolated one of the talk bubbles, then super sized it. It became an intricate part of the page design by conjuring up thoughts of BIG CONVERSATION, as well as making up part of the title, together with the Amy Tan chipboard alphas, & glittery foam alphas from American Crafts, in such a fun way!

Next I worked on the photograph. HA! this shot really embraces his sassy attitude towards life. I love it!! Underneath you’ll notice I layered journal cards, paper pieces & tags…it not only makes for an eye catching cluster but gives the photo extra height too. For the secondary title on the right of the photo, I used a few of the cute printed chipboard bits from the Shimelle pack found in the Embellishment kit, & stickers from Amy Tan as found in the Project Life kit. Little wood alphas (from last month’s kit), enamel dots, grey alpha stickers & staples finish off things nicely here.
For more details & shots of my creative process, check out the slideshow HERE>>

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope this project has inspired you in some way! Remember to join the happy gang on our FB members forum, where we all hang out, chat & share our creativity!
Have a great week further!
