Creating a Center Step card was a lot easier then I thought it would be! I found Sandy's blog where she posted a template on how to do it! (Thank you Sandy!) I was able to print it out and use it while I measured twice and cut once! :) Here is a link to her blog post if you would like it for yourself as well: "Creative Moments With Sandy"- Center Step Card Template.

I love that I could send this creation as a card and the recipient could use it as a decoration! I might need to make one for myself to decorate with!

I tied the ribbon after reading a tutorial form a fellow crafter's blog. I found it at Eskimimi makes blog. Here is a link to the tutorial: Eskimimi Makes, Fork Bows! Thank you Eskimimi for creating this! I am amazed at how easy it is to make bows! I avoided making bows before because every time I tried I felt like I was just fumbling around with too much effort and no fruitful outcome. Now I am no longer afraid of tiny bows! I used a dinner fork to create a small one with a 6" piece of ribbons. I also tried it on a larger serving fork and used an 8" piece of ribbon. Just be sure your fork has four prongs!
The new springs from Close to my Heart are a lot of fun to play with! The plump belly of this peep is the perfect size to conceal the spring. When the card is on display it happily bobbles and wobbles. It makes me smile with Easter cheer! :) They were easy to use, just peel off the white paper and leave the adhesive film layer, then stick in place.
Thanks for looking! Hope you have a Happy Easter, Peeps!
