Project Parade Day One: Eggstra Special Spring

With Spring and Easter just around the corner, we thought it would be fun to have a Project Parade with the them of EGGSTRA SPECIAL SPRING. For today's post, I am showing you a quick project that can be easily mass produced for classmates, friends and church groups.



I started off with a small (approx. 2.5" x 3.5") kraft sack that I purchased in a package at Hobby Lobby. I added the clipped grass along the bottom and then adhered the paper pieced eggs just under the edge of the top of the grass. The sentiment is stamped on polka dot patterned paper and matted with white cardstock. All images are from the Chocolate Bunnies set, one of my favorite releases from March.
Inside the sack, are a few jellybeans. I estimate that the total cost for this project to be well under $1, making it not only fun, but also affordable.

So do you want some new Verve??? Play along with us during our Project Parade for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Verve Stamps store. All you have to do is create an egg-stra special spring project and link it up with the Mr. Linky form at the bottom of this post. Entries will close at 8PM Mountain on Saturday, April 4! Verve Stamps are not required, but we do LOVE to see 'em if you got 'em!

And to put a little spring in your step, we'll be picking five random commenters over the course of the parade who will win their choice of any Verve Stamps set. You never know which Diva will be drawing, so if you see a project you like, be sure to leave the girls some love! :)




Links are now closed for this contest.
Thanks for playing!
