Washi projects

Hello everyone, I hope you have all been doing well. I have been working on the garden, painting, and catching up on my reading lately. I have really missed my daily crafting time and have resolved to set time aside for that pursuit every day. I have stacks of unused Stampin' Up! goodies that I haven't even cracked open yet and the new catalog is right around the corner. Don't know where the time goes. Soon it will be June and my Billy will have completed his first year at college! And I got through it, even though I still miss him every single day.

This project was one that came through on my Facebook feed from Nifty, and is super easy if you have some washi tape you're wondering what to do with. Love the corner bookmarks, I'm going to try some that are hand doodled and colored. Have you seen all of the big girl coloring books out there? We could have told them years ago just how satisfying coloring things was :)

Spring Chicken

Stampin' Up! Honeycomb Happiness chick was colored and cut out. Flowers were made from some older paper packs using the scallop punch and Birds and Branch punch for leaves. For the basket I used a 12" x 12" sheet of Crumb Cake cardstock, scored every 4" and cut out end tabs to create a basket shape. I made slits every 1/4" and wove 1/4" strips of Soft Suede and Chocolate Chip. To make the wood grain look I swiped those same colors on the Crumb Cake base. Cut handle to match. I'm ready for spring even if the calendar isn't!
