Easter cards at Moreton Shores RSL retirement village

Last week I had the pleasure of the company of some of the residents at Moreton Shores Returned Services League (RSL) retirement village to make some Easter cards and a chocolate gift pouch. There were a few who came to watch too, and had fun seeing how they were made. They are a group with a wide range of abilities, including mobility and vision issues, and it's always challenging to create a project that they can all make themselves, but this one was a big success. They made the Easter chicks on the cards using punches and the Top Note die, in Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango card.

The chocolate pouch uses the scallop tag topper punch and is embossed with the recent Decorative Dots embossing folder that was available during Sale-a-bration. I used the Mosaic punch folded in half to make the beak. The kids at school also made this for easter, and they had a ball!
