Easter Cards and Gift Cartons for the kids - Basket Bunch

Welcome once again Crafters

I am continuing on from yesterdays post about Some Bunny Sweet card using the Basket Bunch bundle.
I created a matching card and gift carton yesterday as a request for another site I am on. This idea had been floating around for a day or two for my children for Easter gifts.
Well I got to it and created their gifts this afternoon
 Here they Both are.
They are going to LOVE them :)

You're Egg-stra Special and Some Bunny Sweet

I have 3 children 24, 8 and 6.
The two youngest are boy and girl respectively. They both love my cards and gift and to make them feel a bit special I made these for them both.
If you click HERE you can see the original post and a picture of my children..

You can see all the colours that I used beside this open card picture above.
For the cartons I first made a cylinder, glueing and fast fusing the edges inside so they were facing each other. I then pinched one end shut and fastened with tear and tape and a spot of multi purpose glue (Tombow). I then filled the cylinderswith cadbury caramel  eggs and closed. 
Attaching tags to the tops to finish. 
To create the tags, I used the That's the Tag bundle.

I made a quick FB live video while I was creating these water colour images for the cards. 
You can click HERE to view the video and see some of the water colouring being done.

I stamped them all first on a thick whisper white A4 sheet. Then coloured and die cut them. The ones I didn't use I put inside a ziplock bag and placed inside the stamp case for later use.

Sponged backgrounds

I sponged the backgrounds and then mounted them onto the bases using dimensionals.
