Too much chocolate...never!

Hello friends
By the power of Blogger scheduling this should go live while I'm in Birmingham!

Is it Easter yet??  
You would think so by the amount of eggs in the supermarket.
Mind you, I'm not moaning - I am very partial to a Cadbury Buttons egg and normally
manage to eat a few way before Easter!
Today's crafty project is to create your own egg packaging - I started this last
Easter and it proved really popular.  A length of cardstock - you may need to join in depending
on the size of your egg, scored twice to create a base, drawn up and sealed with an eyelet and twine.
For the dies - Gold Labels Four and the butterfly from Butterfly Corner.
***Crafty Alert*** expect to see this butterfly quite a lot - it is climbing up my favourites chart!
A side on view to see the golden egg, it is stuck in place with some Dodz
It glams up a normal egg and makes it much more special.
I'm back tomorrow dear friends.
Take care.

Ooh, I hadn't found your blog last Easter, so this idea is a new one on me - makes me hungry, as well as wanting to make the "box"? These new Sp Gold dies are truly beautiful.

Morning Christine

I loved this when I saw it on Saturday, such a great idea and could be decorated in so many different ways depending who the egg was for!
Congratulations to you on rising to no.8 on the blogging ladder! I'm sure your C&C shows have created lots of interest in your blog and given you more followers - how exciting!
Enjoy your day at 'Stitches'

Morning Christine, I saw this fabulous Egg wrap on your Shows on C&C, it is spectacular. Loving those new Gold dies, I tried yesterday to get the butterfly corner but it had sold out, probably just as well because I had already spent enough ha ha !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Morning Christine,
What a great idea, the packaging on the eggs is usually very boring this would make it special.
Loving the new gold dies wish I could afford them.
Enjoy the trade show.

Good afternoon Christine,
I hope you have had a great day at Stitches Trade show,

I would like to thank your lovely boys for the speedy delivery of my tags, bought from your Amazon store on Friday evening and delivered this morning! Fab service. They are obviously doing a brilliant job and maybe deserve on of those eggs! haha
