Happy Easter from our home to yours!

So, I had this crazy idea to try something different for Easter this year.  I usually always make cards and I love doing that, but I wanted to branch out and try something out of my comfort zone!  Well, this project was super fun, but extremely time consuming!:)  I want it to be known that I did get them all delivered before Easter!  Yay for me!!!  Anyway, check out my first attempt making an Easter ornament and Mason Jar topper:
I love these shorty Mason Jars and I filled them with pastel M&M's (that's my husband's favorite part of this project!  I told him he has to wait until after Easter to eat them as they make a cute decoration!  That's not too mean, right??!!)  The jar is topped with a paper doily and then the topper.  The 3-D church with steeple is from Papertrey Ink as well as the trees.  I totally fell in love with the church when I saw it on their website, especially how they made the windows for you to stamp them in a different color.  When I think of Easter, I think of church so I knew I had to have this!  The grass is topped with a couple flowers with pearls and to finish it off I made a seam binding bow with a stick pin and a "Happy Easter" tag.

Now for the ornaments:
I created hills out of brown kraft paper and stamped the "Happy Easter" sentiment right on it.  On top of that is a grassy hill where the 3-D church is placed.  The trees are placed on both layers to add some height.  Silver twine, white seam binding for the bow and a sweet "Happy Easter" tag and well, there you have it!
A special project for a very special  Resurrection Easter Sunday!  Thanks for hopping on over to Kirby's Kards to check out my latest spring creation!  Hope you enjoyed it!

Make it a great day!
