Happy Easter!

Hi, there!

Just popping in to share with you a sweet Easter project that I made yesterday!  I was so inspired by Lori Hairston 's project over at Chouxchoux Paper Art that I just had to give it a try!  I'm entering my project over at Word Art Wednesday.  Here is a photo of her carrot treat box...


She has her lovely treat box in a basket filled with beautiful pastel Easter eggs!  Lori always has wonderful videos with easy instructions...so helpful!  What a lovely photo with the super sweet carrot treat box...love it!

Ok, now on to my treat box...


I downloaded the template given by Lori and enlarged it 185% on my copier.  I didn't have orange gingham paper, but did have yellow gingham paper.  I must admit I made more work for myself, but I was happy with the results.  Because I inked the yellow gingham paper with distress ink, I had messy orange fingers.  I thought handling the treat box would not be good for someone else either, so I applied mod podge onto the paper.  It gave it a nice shine and more sturdy, too.  I did line the back of the paper with orange card stock.  So, the inside has a great dark orange color.  Well, you are probably thinking just like me at this point why didn't I just use orange paper for the outside, too?  But, it's ok I'm happy with the end results.

The chick and egg is from Memory Box.  The grass die is from MFT.  The tulip is from Paper Sweeties and the sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy.  I covered the clothes pin and egg with washi tape.  Pom pom trim, ribbon, and button to finish my carrot treat box.  Here is a side view of my project...



Ok, well, that's all for now.  I had lots of fun making this carrot treat box.  If you have any questions, I'd be happy to help.  I'm sure Lori would, too.  Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by today!  Take care and have a wonderful day!

Hugs,
Maria
