3-D Easter Egg and First cut with the Silhouette

Hello fellow bloggers! I know its been awhile, I apologize for that. Hope everyone is been doing good and staying crafty. I have a 3-D Easter Egg to share with you all today. I am so excited because this was my first time making a 3-D paper project, and the first time I used my Silhouette machine. I think that for being my first time using the silhouette I did pretty good:)

I bought the egg shaped container file form a great company called SVG Cuts. The egg shaped container came in the SVG Cuts Popular Street Tulips kit. One of the reasons why I wanted a silhouette machine is to be able to cut SVG's, and well I jumped right at it with this project.

I got my Peachy Keen stamps out and got to work. Stamped, colored with Nior markers, and cut by hand. Added some Stickels to add some sparkle to the adorable bunny. This bunny is from the March 2013 stamp club of the month kit.

I used some decorative gems to polish up the paper, and hit the edges of the paper with some walnut color distress ink. I then took some sheer ribbon in pink and purple and wrapped it around the egg.

I added some light purple Easter basket grass inside and then topped it off with candy. Super cute and easy to make:)
