Easter Nest


It took me several days, but I finally managed to figure out how to turn the scallop circle die into a bowl. This bowl makes a perfect nest, don’t you think? If you would like to make your own nest or bowl-shaped dish, just watch my tutorial below. It’s actually quite easy to make.



Details: The square lattice embossing folder gives the bowl a nest-like look and when you add little slivers of 5” card stock in Soft Suede and Wild Wasabi and line the bowl with them, it really looks like a nest. I embossed the swirl from the Easter Blossoms stamp set with white embossing powder on both birds. I also embossed the greeting, “sending Springtime smiles”, with white embossing powder on Wild Wasabi. A Crumb Cake Modern Label Punch piece serves as the stake for the greeting.
