Hello friends! Aly Dosdall here to share a fun project idea for the upcoming Easter holiday. My kids always look forward to holidays, and one of their favorite ways to celebrate them is with a countdown.
The Mini Envelope Punch Board is the perfect tool for making countdown-size envelopes that you can fill with fun holiday activity ideas, stickers, small treats, etc.
I started by selecting a pretty ombre print from the new DCWV Spring Bloom Premium Stack available at JoAnn Stores. Since the Premium Stacks are double sided, they’re perfect for this project. I followed the directions on the Mini Envelope Punch Board for making 2 1/2 inch square envelopes. For my countdown I made 9 of them.
Once I finished making all my envelopes, I punched out nine 2 1/2 inch squares of smooth white Bazzill Basics cardstock with my Square Punch Board. I love that tool, and I swear I’ve used it more often than I expected I would!
I made a list of fun Easter activities that my kids love to do, and typed them up on the white squares with my Typecast Typwriter.
The Crate Paper Magnet Studio is the perfect way to display this countdown. I added a vinyl cling border to the top of the 9×13 magnetic board, and then spelled out “EASTER” with the 3 inch gold magnetic letters.
Using my Spring Loaded Scissors, I trimmed 1 inch long pieces of a self-adhesive magnetic strip and added them to the backs of the envelopes.
I added the magnet-backed mini envelopes to the board and filled them with the typed Easter activity squares I made. Then I embellished and numbered each of the envelopes and the project title with stickers and die cuts from the Crate Paper Chasing Dreams collection, and Thickers from the Crate Paper Good Vibes collection.
I love how this turned out, and my girls are really excited to get started on this countdown the week before Easter!
It was easy to make with the right We R tools, Crate Paper embellishments, and DCWV papers! Thanks for stopping by, and happy crafting friends!
