Spring Fling

In case all you scrappers haven't heard, SNR (Scrapbook News & Review) is having a big event! A Spring Fling. The event lasts from March 7th-21st and you can find tips, techniques, challenges, games, prizes and a crop by just clicking on the link above! Now part of their Spring Fling is having a blog-a-log where they feature blogs with Spring Inspired projects. I was lucky enough to get to be a part of this great event and share a little Spring inspiration with my fellow scrappers.
For my project I made an Easter Flower Pot. Here's my recipe for the project:
1. Cup
2. 2 coordinating papers
3. Easter Egg picks
4. flowers
5. buttons
6. shredded paper
7. styrofoam
8. ribbon

OK, there's my list of ingredients. I started by covering a cup with a 12x12 piece of paper, then I trimmed it down to size to fit my cup. I then cut a piece of paper to make the rim of my cup/pot. I added ribbon and flowers with buttons. I then put a styrofoam ball in my cup and arranged the Easter egg picks. I then put shredded paper in the top of my cup to hide the styrofoam. Here's the finished result:

This project was super easy and cheap, what more could a scrapper want? I used Colorbok & Creative Imaginations Papers, Prima flowers, and Martha Stewart ribbon.
I also made an Easter card to share with you.

This card features Papertrey Ink stamps, Melissa Frances & Colorbok paper, Prima flowers & bling, and Stickles.
I hope I've inspired you to think outside the box, you can create anything your heart desires with paper. Be sure to check out SNR's awesome blog. And if your new to my blog and love your Cuttlebug, I'd love to invite you to visit the Cuttlebug Challenge blog! We have weekly challenges, tutorials, and tons of inspiration!
