Shaving Cream Technique

Hello Crafters,

Well I am guessing you are all full to the brim with chocolate after the Easter bunny visiting you yesterday!

I wanted to share with you one more of my Easter Treat Boxes which you have all seen by now, but I have added a new technique, the Shaving Cream technique!

Yes, you heard it right, it is a messy technique, but very effective and we had so much fun playing with it.

Every piece of card is different every time you place it onto the shaving cream!

Here’s what to do:

First you start with spraying some shaving cream onto a large dinner plate, smooth it out slightly, then add a few drops of reinker. I used Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana.

Then you use a skewer and slowly swirl the colours around in a circular motion until you are happy with the look.

Then place your white card stock on top, press down so it is evenly coated, then lift up. Wipe off the shaving cream with some paper towel. I do this in a circular motion, in case some of the ink catches the card (you don’t want straight lines of ink through your work).

Here is a piece of A4 card stock that I cut into 4 before placing into the cream. Isn’t it a cool technique?!!!!

And here it is cut up and placed onto my Easter Treat Box!!!

Easter Treat Box

The box is Strawberry Slush card stock. The clear window is punched with the 1-3/4″ circle punch with a sheet of acetate behind. A perforating tool was used to create the perforation after the patterned card was glued down. The trim around the acetate window was created with the 2-3/8″ circle punch.

I stamped the bunny, from the Baby We’ve Grown Stamp Set (Wood #133086, Clear #133089) in Strawberry Slush Ink on the off-cut circle from the window! The sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments is stamped next to the bunny and a hole punched and tied onto the ribbon with some Baker’s Twine.

This time I added some Strawberry Slush ribbon to the top of the box to use as a handle!

This treat box can hold more than 150g of chocolate easter eggs (I have put in 25 eggs)!!!
