we have a fun and possibly tasty challenge for you this week at Just Add Ink. It won't be long till Easter is upon us -so this week's challenge, from Nikki, is Just Add Ovals (for Easter).
I decided it was time to revamp the bunny egg boxes I made for my munchkins back in 2012. You can see them here. This time I gave the boxes an Australian feel.
As you can see they hold quite a few of the little solid chocolate eggs - yum! I started by doing an image search for punch art koala's and kangaroos and used an amalgamation of the images to work out the basic proportions. Then I pulled out my oval dies to select the right scale for my bunny boxes and went to work. I was tempted to go with bright colours but my conservative side said no stick with grey and brown (it's so boring sometimes!). So to add some interest I used dotty DSP for both tummies. Darling daughter picked the kangaroo to be her's as it had a heart for a nose :) Thankfully my sweet son is pretty easy going and accepted the left over koala as his (the eggs inside may have helped with that :)
I used the same dimensions as I did back in 2012 (you can find a basic template) in that post. To add just a little detail to the boxes I stamped them with a wood pattern prior to assembling them.
Hope you can join us this week for the fun challenge, that if you spin it right could involve chocolate ;)
Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT fabulous oval inspired Easter creations.
