Easter Treat Holder 2
This little cutie is about 4 x 4 inches in size and could hold anything from candies or Peeps to a cute little scarf or special gift card, not to mention hair accessories, funky bracelets, ...oh you get the idea. (I'm thinking of my kid, as usual, and what she would like.) I originally purchased the boxes from a now-defunct scrapbook store in my area. I didn't save the packaging, so I can't share the brand name, sorry! I have taken a photo of the box and added red dashes to show where the score lines are for folding. I figure you can use the image as a template and cut your own out of card stock. I would prefer this option since card stock is colorful and these boxes are plain white, requiring you to cover every square inch with patterned paper. It would save some time. If you are interested in a template that you can use in your printer, simply e-mail me and I'll send you one: AnnetteGreen@bellsouth.net
I pulled together some different B&T (background and texture) papers from my CTMH stash. The pink polka dot is from the Jingle Level 2 paper pack, the pink stripe with mini-pinwheels is from the Topstitch Level 2 paper pack, and the purple on the sides is from the Bella Level 2 paper pack. I used the With Love (D1284) stamp set, some Hollyhock ribbon, a chipboard ribbon slide (now retired) and some Hollyhock brads for the stamped flowers. Happy Everything has been stamped on Amethyst cardstock. I popped up the flowers with foam tape to add dimension.
Here's what the box looks like before you assemble. Again, let me know if you'd like a printable template.
