Project Parade Day Two: Hoppy Easter!

It's Eggstra Special Spring-time on the Verve blog for the next couple of weeks, so we hope you'll enjoy seeing all of the Diva's Eggstra Special creations! We especially hope you'll play along and share your own Eggstra Special project!

For today's project I decided to use my new Baskets and Blooms die to create this cute little Easter basket. I filled the basket with edible Easter straw (yep. . .edible!) and my FAVORITE Easter candy, Cadbury Mini Eggs! The adorable bunny with eggs and sentiment are from the Chocolate Bunnies set. The little basket is the perfect size to give a little treat to a special someone. I've already been instructed by my daughers to make them each one! LOL

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 HERE. 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! :) Good luck and thanks for visiting!

  15. So cute! But I am wonderingnow about the edible straw?!

    ReplyDelete
  16. For those of you that asked. . .yes, the edible straw I found at Sam's Club last year. I haven't really looked for it this year, so I don't know if it still exists. I does have a hint of green apple flavor, but for the most part it tastes a little like cardboard! LOL
