Easter Box

Ah, it's the weekend! I am feeling better - finally! Rough week for the Miller family here.

Happy Saturday! Last week I stumbled across this adorable round top box template on Splitcoaststampers. It was their weekly "Try a New Technique" Challenge (TLC208). The template for this box can be downloaded by clicking HERE.
Don't be intimidated. It's really easy and super fun to decorate! The materials I used to decorate this are located at the end of the post.

I'm thinking of making these as my favors for my Easter dinner table. I can fill them with homemade cookies and candy as just a little treat for my guests.

I must tell you that the grass I added in this little box is homemade. Just take green cardstock, run it through your paper crimper, and shred or cut into little strips. It doesn't take much to fill these.

I'm off to brunch with some friends this morning! Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by!
Materials used for this project:
Stamp Sets: A Good Egg (SU!) & Easter greeting from Stampabilities
SU! Designer Series Paper: Summer Picnic (retired)
SU! Ink: Only Orange, Black
Accessories: American Crafts ribbon, Nestabilities, green mesh

This is so cute, so fun. Love the homemade grass. Wouldn't have thought to make my own and crimp it. Great favor for an Easter gathering. Like your Valentine's mailboxes, I would sure like to make this in time for next Easter!
