Easter Treat Boxes

It's been school holidays here, and I've been having a lovely time doing family things. We went camping for a few days in Kiama with some friends, and then had Canberra family visiting with us at home after that. Now Easter is just around the corner, and we have lots more family fun planned! I have no classes scheduled for the school holidays, so it's lovely to just relax and spend time with the kids. I thought I'd better hop on and show you some Easter projects before it's all over and done with! Here are the projects we made in my Easter classes during March: I went with a blue and yellow theme this year - Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight. I think they look Easter-y but could still be used for any occasion. We made an extended pillow box with the Pillow Box Die in the Big Shot, and a cute little basket (so easy to make using the Scallop Square Big Shot Die and only requires an A5 piece of cardstock). To make the basket, just score in a tic-tac-toe pattern every 3 scallops, snip opposite score lines on 2 sides and form into a basket! The third box I call a Clam Shell Box. It is really just a small box with an egg-holder insert and then 2 boxes attached with a brad to each side so they open up.... ta-da!....

A pretty cute way to present an egg, huh?
