Cute Easter Buckets with the Cricut Joy

I have been getting a fair bit of use out of my Cricut Joy - considering I have limited time to concentrate and learn what to do!

I'm quite excited by my latest project - some mini Easter Buckets for Emily to use for a little Easter egg hunt next weekend.

Everything I've been doing so far has been with the things you can get free in Cricut Design Space (or fonts I've uploaded) but I decided to go for the free month trial of Cricut Access, and it has been good to not have to limit myself to the free things.  (To be honest, maybe some of what I've used here is free - I'm not sure now that I have access to it all.)

The bunny design I used without any changes, as I knew I wanted a simple white silhouette, and I love how it looks!  That was my original idea - a white bunny silhouette - but then I thought carrots would be cute too.  I found a simple carrot image, but it was also designed to be cut in one colour.  However, I fiddled about with the image to separate the leaves from the carrot so that I could cut them in two colours.  I'm so pleased with how they came out!

The back of the buckets have Emily's name on:

(My camera really didn't like focussing on that orange!)  The font I used was Showcard Gothic.

The pastel buckets are from Baker Ross.  They are tiny 7.5cm high buckets, in a pack of 5.  Quite overpriced, once you pay for delivery, but they were just what I wanted.  And I hope that we'll use them for years to come.  (The dent on the back of the pink one annoys me greatly, though.  I may have to stick some trim on to cover it.)

These are hollow chocolate eggs - creme egg sized - so you can see how small the buckets are!  My husband bought the eggs when he did the food shop.  I wanted smaller eggs, but the colourful foil wrappers are just what I had in mind!

I also made a couple that will be for the little baby on his way... if all goes to plan.

Once he's safely in this world and we're sure of a name, I will put his name on the back of these buckets.

With the extra yellowy bucket, I did a simple 'Happy Easter' design.  Here they all are together!

What do you think?  I'm so pleased - they came out just as I had imagined!
