Happy Easter …

Well ... we are now in the tail end of Cyclone Ita, and the Easter Bunny was able to make it through all that rain and wind to deliver chocolate goodies across the region!

I stayed up late adding the final touches to Reilly and JorjaRose’s Easter treats.
The little Easter Boxes were case’d via Jacque Williams, but altered.
I changed the circle to a heart, and added personal tags to each Box.


#1 and #3 Jacque's version, #2 and #4 by Kathe

Easter Treat Box
To make the Treat Boxes, start with cardstock 6”x8 ½”.
Score at 2”, 4”, 6”, 8”
Turn 90 degrees, score at 2”


Cut the Circle or Heart using Punches or Framelits, I used the Heart from the “Hearts Collection” Framelits. I saved the cut out Heart for the Tag.
Assemble the Box and add the treats, for the closing add a 2”x 2 ½” piece of coordinating cardstock, use the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to add fancy edges at both ends,


                              Inside "JorjaRose's Easter Treat Chest"

Tape or Glue one edge to the box so that the child can get easy access to their treats. Close the box, punch 2 holes using the Crop-A-Dile, and add some decorative ribbon.

                              
                                 "JorjaRose's Easter Treat Chest"

The Tag is made with the cut-out Heart, a second Heart cut from the “Hearts A Flutter” Framelits, and an initial is cut using the “Typeset Alphabet Bigz” dies, and then layered on Dimensionals, and tied with Bakers Twine.

The little chicks are made using the Bird Builder Punch, and then re-punching to “dock” their tails. Sponge with Daffodil Delight, the Small Heart Punch is used to create the cute little wing, which is then dipped in Dazzling Diamonds, and attached using Dimensionals.

The kiddies were xtra lucky this year, as they each got 2x Treat Boxes, as well as a Metal Case {which they can reuse to house their marbles, cars, barbies etc.} containing  8 hollow Easter Eggs, AND a Chocolate Maltesers Easter Bunny!!!


omg soooo yummy Maltesers Easter Bunny!!!

When I grow up, just sayin’ I am going to spoil my grandchildren{s}!!!
From one set of grandparents, the kids received a single hollow Easter Egg, and from the other set of grandparents, a hologram placemat.
Just sayin’ …

These Treat Gift Boxes can be made for any occasion, think Girlfriends, Wedding Favours, Party Favours, etc.
