Happy Easter Box

Hi, there! It's Roxanne here today with a cute little project I came up with just in time for Easter. I'm actually going to use for a decoration on my china cabinet because I love how it came out.

Here's a little secret on my project...I didn't use any Easter themed stamp sets from Lawn Fawn! Gasp!! I don't actually have any yet, so I had to get creative. I love making things out of unexpected sets.

These are the supplies I used for the project I'm about to show you.



The box was something I had a few of left in my stash. I just added the pink striped paper from the Lawn Fawn 6x6 Petite Paper Pack, Let's Polka. I sanded the edges to blend them in and smooth out the cuts I had to make to get it to fit.


Next, I created my tag from the Winter Gifts set. I stamped it with Memento in Tuxedo Black ink onto kraft cardstock (my fry box is kraft as well) and cut it out and punched a hole in the top of the tag. I colored in the border with a couple of my Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils.


For the Happy Easter sentiment, I stamped that using the word "happy" from the Happy Feast set and "Easter" was from the Milo's ABC's set. I used Versafine, Onyx Black to make sure it was nice and dark! I then set that aside to dry.

I stamped the pennants from the Winter Gifts set onto two different patterened papers from the 6x6 Let's Polka Petite Paper Pack and cut them to fit onto the tag. I used Memento, Tuxedo Black for those and foam adhesive to give them dimension.

On to my Easter basket! For the basket, I used the bucket from the Trim the Tree set and formed the garland from that set to create a handle for my basket. I then fussy cut it out and colored it in with the Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils.

For the eggs, I used the two round, striped ornaments from the Trim the Tree set and this time, I used the Lawn Cuts for the set to cut them out. I then colored them in with my pencils again.

To get the eggs in the basket, I cut a slit at the top of the basket from left to right, almost to the created handle. I then cut some in half, snuck them in and layered them to make it appear realistic.

I decided an Easter basket definitely needs a bow, so I used the bow from the Trim the Tree set with Radiant Neon in Electric Coral and diecut it with the coordinating Lawn Cuts. They really do make life easy!!

Next, I decided I needed something under the sentiment, so I grabbed the small ornament from the Trim the Tree set and those became my carrots! I chose to fussy cut around them so I could draw in a simple green topper to each of them as the leaves of the carrots. I used some trimmed down foam adhesive to pop them off the tag.

I just adhered the tag onto the box front with some foam adhesive and grabbed some lime green tissue paper and folded it and trimmed it at the top to mimic grass, and stuffed that inside. Really easy and super cute!


I hope you enjoyed my project today and that I've inspired you to look at your sets in new ways you might not have thought of before to create something fun and whimsical! Thanks for looking! Happy crafting :)
