FREE .studio (Silhouette) File Hinged Easter Egg!

A friend of mine asked me to make her a couple of Easter cards and I decided to get original and design something myself.  I’m really EGG-cited about this file, it turned out so sweet!

(I’m trying BOX for my files - let me know what you think?)

I used some sewing on this card, though I’m sure glue might work fine too.  I like the special touch sewing adds.  (besides, its good for me to keep up my sewing skills so I don’t sew over my finger again)  You need to decide and sew your lace parts on BEFORE you sew the bottom section or the top section together.

This is a fun 3 part project.  A simple card base (definately does not have to be white - a coloured cardstock might be the ticket for YOU!) and then the actual EGG parts (no, not a white and a yolk, tho that is a funny thought) - actually four pieces, two for the top, two for the bottom with holes in the top part through which you can put a brad (I used a rather large dollar store brad, you might want to make your own holes smaller if you want to use a smaller brad - or even remove the holes out of the file and use a punch the size you desire)  and lastly, the inside “egg is a sketch file with a cut for the edge (you will have to set your machine to do this, i’ve created all the lines the same) I chose my designer paper to be one that is one sided, of a crisp stock.  The reason for one sided is so you sketch the sentiment on one side.  A nice touch is all I’m saying.  I’m all about the details.

Note - the butterflies are included - but not the flowers - the flower is from the Silhouette Store. 

Use a couple of glue dots to adhere your “EGG” to the card base but do mention this in your greeting to the person receiving it - they may like the option of taking it off of the card base and sticking it…on the fridge?

I liked it so much I created a “batch” of these sweet little cards.
