Welcome to our Easter Blog Hop! I’m so glad you are taking a peek at my creation.
Happy Easter! Happy Spring!
It’s time to prepare to spoil those you love. Why not make them a little Easter Treat Box and fill it with some colorful candies? This little box holds five or six treats and can be decorated for Easter or as a Spring time celebration. I chose the Hydrangea Haven Bundle for the paper and stamps but you could use whatever you have on hand. The Happy Easter sentiment and the Easter eggs are from the Arrange a Wreath stamp set.
1. Cut a piece of Seaside Spray card stock 8 ½ ” x 3 ¾ “
2. Score the short side at ¾ ” and 3″
3. Score the long side at 2″, 2 ¾ “, 5 ¾ “, 6 ½ “
4. Fold on all score lines.
5. Trim away the rectangles and miter the flap edges as shown in the pictures below.
6. Stamp the Easter Eggs from the Arrange a Wreath stamp set on the flaps (being sure you have them going in the correct direction when folded) in Seaside Spray ink.
7. Add glue or Seal to the outside of the four flaps and fold them to form your box.
8. Fill with your desired candy.
9. Cut a 7″ x 3″ piece of Hydrangea Hill DSP.
10. Lay the DSP over the top of the treat box with approximately equal amounts of paper on each side.
11. Gently fold it at the edges of the box until it is wrapped around to the bottom.
12. Adhere the patterned paper to ITSELF. Do not adhere to the treat box as the top must slide off.
13. Die cut a white circle with the third smallest circle die of the Layering Circles set.
14. Die cut a scalloped circle in Gorgeous Grape with the 3rd smallest scalloped die.
15. Using Gorgeous Grape ink, stamp Happy Easter from the Arrange a Wreath stamp set. Then add a small cluster of flowers from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set.
16. Layer this on the scalloped circle.
17. Add three Pastel pearls.
18. Tie 16″ of Gorgeous Grape ribbon around the box and into a bow.
19. Use dimensionals to pop the circle up on the box.
