I took a little blogging hiatus last week to spend time with family and unplug a bit during Spring Break. It’s nice to do that every once in a while! But with Easter coming up this Sunday, I thought I’d share a few ideas for scrapbooking those egg-citing holiday photos you’ll be capturing.
1. Create button covered eggs. A great way to use up some of that stash of buttons and it adds some great dimension to your page. Just cut out some egg shapes from solid cardstock (or a subtle patterned paper) and cover with a coordinating color of buttons in varying sizes.
2. Use paper scraps to create fun collaged eggs. To make the egg embellishments on this page, I first cut out the white cardstock eggs. Then I tore up little bits of patterned papers and glued them onto the egg shapes. I kept each egg a different color family, but for a really vibrant egg you could combine lots of colors of scraps! Once the egg is completely covered with torn bits of paper, trim any overhanging pieces to get a nice clean edge.
3. Make a striped egg embellishment with ribbon and/or washi tape. I created a little cut file that is made up of one solid tag shape and one slightly smaller tag with an egg shaped hole in it. I then laid different ribbons pieces down on the bottom solid tag to fill in the egg shape. When I layered the smaller tag on top, the egg window is all filled in. I stamped “to” on this one so that I can use it for a basket gift tag, but you could leave it blank or even add journaling to it if using it on a layout. If you’d like to download the cut file (in studio format) for free, you can click here.
I hope this inspires you to scrapbook some of those Easter photos… I’d be egg-static if you shared your ideas as well! Happy Easter!
