Happy Easter, Helga!

I thought it might be fun to make a shaker box for some Easter goodies!  Helga looks so lovely in what might be her Easter Bonnet; she and the butterflies can be found in the Helga Hippo Design Sheet Duo, Helga Hippo Design Sheets Download Bundle or Helga Hippo - Big Kahuna VIP Download Bundle.  The frame is cut from Winston Collection paper.   The box itself is cut from the Distressed Wood Printable Papers Download.

These beautiful Design Sheets make crafting fun and easy!  When there is little or no time for coloring, the design sheets are the perfect way to add fun to any project!  My Helga image and the butterflies are all from design sheets!

I chose to weld the Helga image to the frame in Design Space and then adhere the acetate to the backside.  The sentiment was printed on computer and that piece of cardstock is the back of the shaker.  I then adhered the entire shaker to the box.

I added some beads to the butterflies and glued them to the tulle bow.
