New Sizzix Project - Sugar Easter Egg Pop-Up


I have a new project on the Sizzix blog today that I am so excited to share with you all! I honestly think it's one of my all-time favorite creations. I used lots of Tim Holtz dies and combined them with Karen Burniston's Pop 'n Cuts Circle Label die to create a sweet little sugar egg.

To give the egg a sugary, sparkly look, I used Ranger's Rock Candy Dry Stickles and it makes the perfect 'sugar' for my egg. Tim's Tattered Lace die makes the perfect 'icing' for the egg. I also came up with a self-closure for the card - something I've wanted to try for awhile now. Since pop-ups can be a little bulky, this is a super easy way to keep them closed.

Oh, I do love that sweet little bunny!! Most of the products I used can be found at Inspiration Emporium via the links below. Make sure you check out the full step-by-step tutorial on the Sizzix blog HERE.

  18. Shelly, this is beautifully gorgeous!!!!! Thankyou for sharing the tutorial, the closure is just what I have been wishing for. Now I don't have to figure it out, you did it for me. I will have to try this one, I need the move&shaper corner die and the antique lace.
