OCC Easter Wishes

Happy Saturday to you all! I'm excited since I have the week off from work (hooray for April vacation!) and I just had my first of 4 Spring concerts with my students this past Thursday. They really did a wonderful job :)

Our new hostess for the next 2 challenges at Our Creative Corner is Vicki Burdick (It's a Stamp Thing) and she chose the theme, "Easter Wishes." The only catch is that your project must be 3D! I'm always challenged when it comes to making 3D projects and I really love it!

My project today includes my all-time favorite Easter treat, the Nestle Crunch Egg. I go crazy for them! Now, I'm also addicted to the Crunch Bells at Christmas, and the Crunch Hearts for Valentine's Day. (Oddly enough I don't really love regular Nestle Crunch candy bars....)
So anyway....I totally hoard these things after Easter since I have to wait sooo long for the next holiday to get more.

Since my project includes a treat, I'm also linking it up for the Moxie Fab World's Food Wraps Challenge. Of course, when I give it to someone, I will include the rest of the bag, because my project only uses one egg! I'll bet you thought I was going to eat the rest of them...

I'm warning you now that there are many pics ahead:
I made this cute birdcage and stand from plain ol' white cardstock- without a template. I got to put my mathmatical skills to the test to make sure it all worked out. I originally wanted to make it a cupcake stand, but then I got the idea for the shredded paper nest.

The paper bird I made is suspended from the top of the cage with some clear thread.

Here's a close-up of the tag:

This is what it looks like with the top of the cage off:
And just the base:

Yum!! Crunch Egg!!


Thanks for sitting through my overly wordy post and please check out the projects from the rest of the DT at Our Creative Corner. Hope you play along!
