Echo Park Paper: Hello Easter Paper Sugar Egg

As a child I was always fascinated by the details captured inside of sugar eggs and have always thought it would be fun to create one out of paper. I couldn’t wait to give it a try with the new Hello Easter collection by Echo Park Paper!

I used my Silhouette Cameo electronic cutting machine and a cut file by My Scrap Chick to cut out the pieces for the egg (If you don’t own an electronic cutting machine, the purchase of the file also includes a PDF template).
The base of the egg is constructed using the beautifully, sturdy Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock (my FAVORITE white cardstock!). I then cut the inner decorative panels from the pink bunny patterned paper (4×4 Journaling Cards paper), and the outer decorative panels using the Hoppy Easter paper.
Next, I placed a foam block and bright green Easter grass inside the egg. I then used the cute elements from the Chipboard Accents to create the scene inside. The pieces are attached to skinny, flat craft sticks that I stuck into the foam. The bunny and chick look like they are having so much fun searching for their Easter eggs!

I even added a banner sticker (Element Sticker sheet) going across the top of the inside of the egg for a party feel! You can catch a glimpse of it here in this photo.

I cut the frame pieces to go around the opening of the egg from Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock and the Yellow/Green Solid paper from the Hello Easter Solids Kit. I used a small flower punch to add another layer of flowers on top of the floral border included with the cut file fore more dimension. I then finished off each flower with a pink gem center.
At the bottom of the sugar egg opening, I placed the “Hello Easter” die cut (Ephemera) matted with Lt. Pink/Dk. Pink Solid paper (Hello Easter Solids Kit). I tucked the floral chipboard piece to the left, and a few flower and carrot stickers (Element Sticker Sheet) to the right).

For the top of the egg, I used the Lt. Pink/Dk. Pink Solid paper again to create a bow from 0.5″ x 12″ paper strips. I simply looped a variety of lengths together to form the bow and then secured them together with a brad. The tails of the bow are curled the same way you would curl curling ribbon … by using the edge of a flat tool (like a bone folder) instead of a pair of scissors.
I adorned the center of the bow with a die cut flower created with the Flower Die Set #4. The center of the flower sparkles and shines with a bright blue, sparkly gem brad from the Sweet Baby Boy Decorative Brads.

Echo Park Paper: Hello Spring Rainboot

I’m getting so excited for Spring and all that comes with it … rain showers, sprouting grass, birds chirping, and colorful flowers! Ahhhh! I can feel the warm sunshine on my arms now!

Today I have a fun 3D project to share with you … a Rainboot filled with adorable paper flowers and pinwheels!
Jana Eubank Echo Park Paper Hello Spring Rainboot Box 1 600
I used the Echo Park Paper Hello Spring collection along with the Hello Easter Solids Kit to create this cheerful wellie boot. The butterfly patterned paper (4×4 Journaling Cards paper) was perfect for the main body of the boot. I then added patterned accents with the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper and the Spring Flowers paper.
I created a tag using the Fancy Tags Die Set to hang from the strap of the rainboot. I added a sticker from the Hello Spring Element Sticker sheet and then adorned it with a butterfly created with the Bloom Into Spring Die Set.

Next, it was time to fill up my boot! I used paper straws and dies to create the pinwheels and flower using more papers from the Hello Spring collection. The pinwheel was created with the Sunny Pinwheel Die Set, and the flower was created with the Flower Set #1 Die Set. I also added flowers and leaves to the center of each pinwheel, complete with sparkling, gem brads from the Sweet Baby Boy Decorative Brads.

This project is so versatile! It’s the perfect home decor piece to brighten a window sill … or fill the boot with a treat and brighten up a friend’s day!

Echo Park Paper: Baby Boy Bottle Box and Baby Shoes

It’s been a long time since we have had a baby in our home, and that makes creating baby projects extra fun! Especially, using the NEW Sweet Baby Boy collection! Today’s project is a fun baby bottle gift box with matching 3D paper shoes.
Use the bottle to hold a gift card or small gift and add some candy (every new mom needs chocolate, right?!) to the accompanying baby shoes! I think they would look so cute packaged together in a cellophane bag tied with a pretty ribbon! You could even use this set as decor for a baby shower. Let’s take a closer look!

I created the baby shoes using a cut file that I found in the Silhouette Design Store (Baby Sneaker by Daniela Moscone). The cut file includes one shoe. To create the pair of shoes, I simply copied all of the pieces and then reversed them in the Silhouette Design Software using the Object>Mirror>Flip Horizontally command.
After assembling the shoe, I laced them up with some teal baker’s twine and attached the “Baby Boy” tag from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack.

This bottle box by SVGCuts.com is very easy to put together. I used foam squares to give the decorative panels and the label on the front dimension.
I used a variety of Echo Park Paper dies to create the label. The base of the shape was created using the Stitched Label Nesting Die. I matted this on solid yellow paper (6×6 paper pad) and then used the cloud from the Spring Weather Die Set to create a place for the stork sticker (Element Stickers) to stand on. The “Cute as a Button” die cut is also from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack.
Finally, I used the Big Sky Saloon Alphabet Die Set to add the word “Baby.” Try adding the name of the baby here, too!

I hope you enjoyed these sweet baby projects and found some inspiration to create a project for the new baby in your life.

Echo Park Paper: Create

I love when a paper collection comes out that celebrates all things crafty! The new I’d Rather Be Crafting collection by Echo Park Paper is so much fun! I’ve been wanting to add something fresh to my scrapbook room decor and decided to use this collection to create today’s project.

I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine to cut out the CREATE letters from Carta Bella’s Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock. Once assembled the letters measure 5″ in height, the perfect size for using the 6×6 patterned papers to decorate!

I chose a variety of papers, layering patterns over solids. I used the Frames & Tags EphemeraElements Stickers, and 6×12 Chipboard pieces as accents on each letter.

I used the Enamel Dots to add dimension to each flower center and then also sprinkled among a couple of the embellishment clusters.
