BBTB2 Challenge: Egg

Yay! Spring is here!  I love seeing all the trees and grass get greener, flower buds bursting into full bloom, sunshine, blue skies, and a soft breeze. What a wonderful season! Our challenge for BBTB2 this week was to use an egg.  I cut a large 11.5" cardstock egg from Doodlecharms.  I covered the entire egg with printed tape from Making Memories, Martha Stewart, and Anna Griffin. I then trimmed the tape to the shape of the cardstock egg. I attached chipboard letters to spell "Easter." I tied a plastic twine ribbon around it, and created a handmade flower from the plastic twine as well, and added Stickles to the center and to the edge of the petals. I then added metal foil flowers randomly, and finally outlined the entire egg with Stickles.  I then attached a hanger to the back of it to hang on my wall.  Go see the other fabulous creations from the other designers on BBTB2!

 Miles of Smiles,
