Now that we have that out of the way, here is my project:
It's a double sided banner AND some boxes to hold some Easter candy or little trinkets.
This side of the banner says "Spring".
This side says "Easter".
Here is a close-up of each side: (It looks much nicer in person!)
This is a closer picture of three of the boxes:
For the Double-sided Banner:
Finished size: 3" tall and 21" long (from each end of the ribbon)
Cardstock: Yellow, Pink, Green and Patterned Paper
Cricut Cartridge George and Basic Shapes Oval 1 page 114, (Base Shift)
Cricut Cartridge Opposites Attract "E""A""S""T""E""R""S""P""R""I""N""G" various pages, (Upright Shift)
Cricut Design Studio
Sizzix Embossing Folder Snowcap
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder D'Vine Swirls
Ribbon Hole Punch
I cut the letters out at 1 1/4" in two different colors. I cut out six 3" ovals in Yellow and six in Green. I cut six 2 3/4"ovals in Pink and six in Patterned Paper. I embossed the Patterned Paper ovals with D'vine Swirls and the Pink ovals with Snowcap. Layer and glue the Pink ovals on the large Yellow ones and the Patterned paper ones on the Green ovals. Glue each letter on a different oval, spelling out each word on the two different types of ovals. Lay out the ovals with "Easter" on them. Directly underneath, line up the ovals with "Spring". Now glue the "E" in Easter to the back of the "G" in Spring. Continue with the "A" to the back of the "N", the "S" to the "I", the "T" to the back of the "R", the "E" to the back of the "P" and finally, the "R" to the back of the "S". Punch ribbon holes in the top of the ovals. Layout the ovals with "Easter" spelled out, then run the ribbon through the holes. Tie loops to each end to hang. Now you should have a two-sided banner.
For all the Boxes:
Finished Size: 3" x 5" x 1"
Cardstock: Yellow, Green and Pink.

For the last box: (Pink)
On Design Studio, weld the bunny from Simply Charmed to the front panel of the box. Cut out. Score the fold lines. Emboss with folder of your choice, if desired. (Note: you will have to do half of the box at a time). Fold and glue box together. Cut a piece of Clear Craft Plastic (2 3/4" x 3"). Glue behind the bunny. This will also make the box sturdier. Decorate the outside as you like.
