Easter Cup Decorations.....

Hi everyone, its Tarrah popping in to share some fun Easter decorations I created with you. Thank you for joining me on the X-Press It blog today!!

Don't they look so cute with a couple of Easter eggs and some little chicks added to them?

Here is how I created them....first of all I gathered all the products needed to create them.

Other products used:
Scallop punch
Metal ruler
Bone scorer
Big Shot and Circle and Scallop Circle Dies
Easter Chicks
Easter Eggs

Start off by trimming the patterned paper to approximately 6cm x 30cm using your scallop punch down one of the long sides. Score with your scorer and ruler each scallop so that once you are finished you can concertine each one. Repeat for your desired number...

I n my case, I made should end up with pieces looking like this once you have scored and folded/concertined your pieces.

From your Cuttlebug or Big Shot cut a scallop circle and a slightly smaller plain circle from all the different patterned papers and adhere the smaller circle to the scallop circle.....

Take your long pieces and bring around to meet each other so you have a circular 'cup' shape. The X-Press It Glue Marker Pen was perfect for this bit as it was a small piece to adhere together.
I found for this next bit that the X-Press It Double Sided High Tack Tape worked the best as you need a strong hold for the folds to stay in place on the bottom circle pieces. Adhere the 'cup' pieces using the High Tack Tape to the small circle bottoms making sure that your scallops are at the top...

Then you can go ahead and decorate how you wish, I added some wood fibres inside my little cups and added some coloured Easter eggs and some cute little chickens!!!

These were super easy to make and it made even more easy being able to create them using my favourite
X-Press It Adhesives and the gorgeous FabScraps paper ranges...

Thanks again so much joining me today on the X-Press It blog, I hope I have inspired you to create with your X-Press It and FabScraps sure to check back again soon for more inspiration from the X-Press It and FabScraps Design Team
Take care....
