Easter Baskets Part 3

Happy Thursday!

Today is part 3 of my picture tutorials.  Today we will be making the Lamb.  Please let me know if you like this kind of post and if you want to see more posts like this one.

I am not the original artist of these Easter baskets,  and I couldn’t find the original artist to give credit to.  You can find these Easter baskets all over You Tube and Pinterest.

You will need to scroll down to Tuesday’s post to learn how to make the box that all of the critters are attached to.

The Lamb is the easiest of all of the critters; he has very few parts.

The first thing that you will need to do is to scroll down to Tuesday’s post to see how to assemble the box that the Lamb is attached to.  Do this first.

Now lets get to the supplies that you will need.

Top Note Die 2 pc’s white

2 X 1 3/8 oval punch 1 pc black

After you have these pieces cut you will have to run them through your die cutting machine in the embossing folder to make the body look like wool.

Adhere the two 1 3/4 X 7/8″ ovals in black to the top back of the top note die.  Next glue the 2 X 1 3/8″ oval to the upper middle of the front of the top note die.  In this picture I cut the top portion off but it is not necessary as I found out later.

Now assemble the eyes by gluing the 1/2″ circles in white to the black face and then glue the 3/8″ circles to the white circle that you just glued down. Now add the 2″ scalloped circle to the top just over the face as shown.

And add the highlights to the eyes as shown.  Finally glue the body to the box that you assembled earlier and the handle with a mini glue dot.

Additional Supplies:

Mini Glue dots, Tombow Mono Multi Glue, White gel pen

 

These Easter baskets are adorable and any one would not believe that you made them.  Give them a try, they are not hard to put together after you make the first one.  They are really easy to do.

If you have any questions please let me know I would be happy to help.

By the way, if you don’t have all of these punches and the embossing folder that’s o.k. Just use what you have that is close in size and see what happens. I am sure that they will be just as adorable as these are.

I would love to see your Easter baskets so Email me the pictures if you like, with your information and maybe I will feature your creations here.

Thanks for visiting this week.
