Easter Treat Boxes

It has been too long since my last post! I have been too busy to get any projects done! I finally had some free time over the last couple of days though & made these cute boxes for my nieces, nephew little brother for Easter.

I started with a plain white Chinese food take out box. I removed the wire handle & opened it up. I placed a sheet of 12 x 12 patterned paper from the DCWV Spring Shower Stack under it, upside down. Traced around it & trimmed off the excess with a paper trimmer. I sprayed the back of the paper with spray adhesive (after I covered my work area with newspaper. Spray adhesive is very messy!)  & covered the box with the paper. I then folded it back into shape & punched a new hole in it using my Crop a Dile Big Bite. I added an eyelet to the hole & used a Happy Easter ribbon for the new handle. I cut out bunny heads with cardstock from using the Doodlecharms cartridge & adhered them with pop dots. I cut out the kids names using the San Serif cartridge  & glued them on. I topped all the boxes with 2 layered Prima flowers & a rhinestone. Thanks for checking them out!

I made this card & gift bag a while back for a Baby Shower. It matched the bedding in the baby's room. I purchased the plain brown gift bag at Hallmark. I cut out stars in brown & blue & embossed them all by hand with a dot texture plate. For the card I outlined the stars & the edge of the card in a clear glitter glue. One of the things I bought to put inside was a blanket that she wanted that matched the card & bag perfectly. I really wish I would have taken a pic of the blanket too.
