Storybook Easter Carriage by Jim R. Hankins

We have a fun treat for you today courtesy of our friend Jim Hankins, aka The Gentleman Crafter.  You may remember back in November 2012 Jim was a guest with us.  He shared an amazing Filigree Reindeer Sleigh project with a printable instruction handout.  Well... he's back!  This time Jim shares a fun and whimsical Storybook Easter Carriage.

The details in this project are so fun and imaginative!  Can you believe all of the clever ways die cuts were included in this project?

The carriage features a frosted window that gives a peek to what is inside.  The bright and fun colors are so perfect for spring too!

The egg part of the carriage lifts off of the base and opens to reveal what treats are inside.  Fill the carriage with traditional Easter treats or with a fun mini book as shown.

You can find the tutorial for this project on the Sizzix Scribd page at: http://www.scribd.com/doc/129342776/Sizzix-Storybook-Easter-Carriage-by-Jim-R-Hankins or view it below.  You may download or print the tutorial using either link.


Thank you so much Jim for sharing this amazing die cutting project with us and wowing us once again!
