Friday Mashup Challenge #49

It is time for another Friday Mashup challenge. This week is challenge #49 and here it is:
1. Make a project using the colors green & yellow
2. Or make a 3D project that is a basket or treat pouch
3. Or "Mash it up" and create a treat basket/pouch using the colors green & yellow
I decided to "mash it up" and I created an Easter treat basket using green and yellow as my main colors. My basket is actually a wooden box that I found in my craft room when I was trying to decide what Cricut cartridge to use to cut my basket. Weird how things work like that huh? I covered it with some green and yellow patterned papers, all of which come from the Lemon Flower Stack by DCWV. The handle was created by cutting a strip of light-weight chipboard and covering it with some plaid ribbon. I used Holiday Cakes to cut the sentiment at 2 3/4." I then covered it with lime green Stickles. The flowers around it are from K&Company. I used A Child's Year for the boy and girl silhouettes. They are cut at 4 1/2" and I drew around the edges of them with yellow Stickles. The bunny medallion on the back is from Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art and it is cut at 4 1/2." I filled the basket with Easter grass and added my treats. They look good don't they? Actually, I created my treats as well! The eggs are wooden and I painted them with brown paints to make them look like chocolate, both milk and dark. I then "drizzled" them with white chocolate, which is actually white dimensional paint. I think they turned out quite well. I hope you enjoyed my project and I also hope you decide to join in the challenge at The Friday Mashup!

  2. WOWZA!! This is fabulous all around! I am impressed that you made the eggs yourself! (Though a bit disappointed that they are not really chocolate! LOL) You ROCKED this challenge!

  3. I love that you not only embellished the box but also created the treats! They will last for a long while! :)

  4. Great use of the images...Paula. I love how you used the challenge colors too. Perfect treat holder for Easter or any occasion.
