Egg Jar

Supplies:

Amazing glass jar (I love to go to Home Goods for mine!)
Eggs (from Michael's Craft Stores)
Moss (also Michael's Craft Stores)
Bunny (up to you if it's chocolate, wood etc)







Spring Totes (I love these as they're perfect to use for the egg hunt...and then all the days after!)

Supplies:
GlueArts Adhesive Squares (www.gluearts.com)
Canvas Totes (Hobby Lobby)
Martha Stewart Paints from Plaid
Martha Stewart Templates and Burshes
Beads
Wood Felt
Sizzix die cut machine and various flower dies (www.sizzix.com)
Handbegh Felts Felted Wool Ball (handbehgfelts.com)
Epiphany Crafts Felt Flower (www.epiphanycrafts.com)
Maya Road Tulle Ribbon


Large Pink Flower:

1) Use the GlueArts Adhesive Squares to adhere the beads forming the stem to the bag.

2) Next paint on leaves and grass using the Martha Stewart All Purpose Paints and brushes. I outlined the leaves by hand-stitching. This step can be omitted for kids.
  
3) Use the Sizzix Big Shot to cut the felt flowers from a variety of colors of felt. (Wool felt is easier to work with if you can find that. You can hand cut the shape as well) Apply Glue Arts Fabric Bond to the backside of your felt. Iron onto the canvas bag to heat the adhesive and bond onto the bag.  

Tip: to make this child friendly…use the Extreme Adhesive Squares in the full size and apply the squares to the backside of the felt and then adhere to the bag. The Extreme Squares are designed to adhere to fabric, canvas and more!

4) The bottom flowers are hand-painted on the tips and then felt flowers layered over the top with a felt ball to finish it off and give dimension. Each flower was adhered using several Adhesive Squares.  

Tip: These can also be sewn with a sewing machine or hand-stitched as well.

5) Adhere butterfly bead with Extreme Adhesive Squares.

6) Tie a ribbon around the handle. Use the Micro Extreme Adhesive Squares to hold the ribbon tails in place on the bag.
Tip: If you do not have access to a diecut machine hand cut your shapes. Also this bag would be fun to personalize with a child’s name, Grandparents, special teacher! And best…this bag took just minutes to make and will be a favorite for years to come.
