Easter Treat Box

When I saw the current challenge to make an Easter/Spring gifts (but not a basket) at Frilly and Funkie the timing was perfect because I needed to work on some little gifts for my Grandchildren so I decided to play even if my mojo is still on vacation :)  This is for my 6 year-old Granddaughter and she won't be critical, especially since it contains some pink Easter straw and a whole bunch of Cadbury Mini Eggs like the ones in the photo.  I have also made a less vintage and more boyish version for my 4 year-old Grandson.

I created a little Milk carton box using a template from Images by Heather M.  Before I folded it, I inked it with some Wild Honey Distress Ink by Ranger and a Honeycomb Mask that my friend cut for me on her Cameo.  Then I did a little more inking with Worn Lipstick and Dusty Concord Distress Ink by Ranger.  The sides and back have some daisies inked on them with a stencil from Dollarama (you can't see them but trust me they are there).

I found the adorable image at Magic Moonlight Studio, mounted her on some Card Stock from my stash and placed her on top of a piece of a Wilton paper doily.  The little flowers were made using EK Paper Shaper Punches and the leaves were punched using a Martha Stewart frond punch.  Everything was distressed with a little Pumice Stone Distress Ink by Ranger and Recollection pearl stickers were added to the flower centres.  I printed a couple of the birds from the image and added them along with some pink seam binding and a little button from my stash.

I am going to enter this project in the following challenges:

Frilly & Funkie - Easter/Spring Gift but not in a basket
Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Anything But A Card
Hobby Cutz - Easter Gift Box
