I am so pleased with this latest little project that I managed to complete. Some of you may have seen my Easter version of this barrow that I posted a day or so ago and I wasn’t really super happy with the ‘structure’ of the barrow, it was a little too flimsy for me so I set about refining my design and so so pleased that I think I have got a super little barrow now that can carry a whole truck load of goodness without her legs giving way!
I really made this barrow as part of some Easter inspirations but it could be used for any event you like. This version is chocked with flowers made using the Bouquet and Spiral Flower Dies from Stampin’ Up! I wanted to be able to have the paper flower and also a treat so made a ‘platform’/lid’ for the barrow so you can still fill it with goodies.
I have Easter Eggs in this sample (seem to have lots in the house at the moment) but this could easily be filled with Mum’s favourite chocolates for Mother’s Day, Christmas Candy … anything.
This version is another Easter inspired one using those fun Lindt carrots, again taking advantage of the platform to hold them in place. Now I do have a tutorial available in my store for those wondering. BUT there are a couple of things you need to know:
1) You need to have the Berry Basket Die from Stampin’ Up! to make this project there is NO alternative for the basket given in the tutorial;
2) The tutorial ONLY has instructions for the barrow and the platform and provides some tips for decoration … it does not have a step by step guide to the flowers shown here.
I hope you like this one and would so love to see your little barrow creations so don’t forget to share them by adding a link to your creations in the comments.
