Happy Easter! And A Last Minute Project!

First of all let me wish everyone a Happy Easter! My Easter is being spent with my family in Seminole. We generally get together for holidays and always have a wonderful time!

This year I decided that the adults deserve to get something a little special and came up with these gable boxes. I made one for my daughter, aunt, cousin and 2 nieces. My sister doesn't get one...remember she got the frame! Inside each box is a small Bath and Body Works hand lotion, 6 plastic eggs with candy and then some other candy tossed in. 

The box measures 6" x 8.5" x 3" and used 2 pieces of 12x12 cardstock to make the base, 1 sheet of cardstock to make the patterned area and then 2 pieces of cardstock or patterned paper that measured about 3.5 x 5.5" for the scallop oval. I used a piece of acetate and put it between the cardstock base and patterned paper. The little tags were made using a Stampin Up punch and I used some bakers twine to attach a tag to each box. 

I had to schedule this post for this afternoon since if I did it for the morning the gals might see them before I, errrr....the Easter Bunny, delivers them. I'll have to let you know later what they said about them!

  1. WOW, I love these gable boxes, they are such a sweet gift, and they look so pretty as well. What a fabulous idea to give (errr ... have the Easter Bunny give) a special Easter treat to each of the adults as well. I love it, it's such a fun treat!

    HAPPY EASTER SHIRLEY!
