I just love the Basket of Fun Toner Card Fronts! They are so cute for Easter! There are many ways to use them, but today I thought I would focus on ink blending and die cutting. I used the Basket of Fun Slim Line Toner Card Fronts because that's what fit with my die set, but you could use any size. Imagine how cute these would be in clear!
I started by foiling my Basket of Fun Slim Line Toner Card Front with Purple Sketch Brutus Monroe Foil. I cut a piece of the GORGEOUS Purple Sketch Transfer Sheet that was slightly larger than my Slim Line Toner Card Front and placed it pretty side up (back side against the toner) onto the Slim Line Toner Card Front and then placed that into a piece of Deco Foil Parchment Paper before running it through my laminator. You want to be sure your laminator is good and hot before foiling. I usually heat mine up 15 minutes after the "ready" light comes on to make sure I get a good foil.
Once the Toner Card Front was foiled I cut out the necessary pieces to build my Easter Treat Lantern. Now let's add some more color! There are a number of ways to color the Deco Foil Toner Card Fronts - markers, watercolor, pencils - but I'm going to do some ink blending. I used some yellow and orange inks and blended it over the Basket of Fun Toner Card Front die-cut pieces. I just LOVE the pop of Purple Sketch Foil against the ink blending!
I assembled the Easter Treat Lantern using some of my favorite iCraft Adhesives - iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive as well as iCraft Easy Tear Tape in 1/4" and 1/8". I cut a little bunny face and the sentiment from white cardstock and finished off the treat box with some twine.
This little treat box is perfect for small candies, lip balm, or even a pack of sequins for a crafty friend! I hope this project inspires you to turn your Deco Foil Toner Card Fronts into something new! See you soon!
