Easter is just around the corner. I know, right?!? Yes, already! This year I have crafted up these sweet favor boxes courtesy of the Spellbinders Large Die of the Month club. They are perfect for trinkets and candy, and will be nestled among the paper grass in my girls Easter baskets.
The only eggs our big girls will hunt are of the golden variety and filled with cash. We hide one each, hide them well, and are purely entertained watching them hunt. No matter how old they are (19 & 20), I still can’t get beyond filling a basket for them. Some items in their baskets have changed over the years and some, like chocolate, have stayed the same. I have a couple of delicate little items to include this year (of which I can’t reveal, because peepers!) and these favor boxes will be the perfect pretty packaging.
The March Large Die of the Month kit includes dies to create 8 elements. The favor box die, 2 tags, 2 leaves. 2 flowers and a flourish. The favor box die fits perfectly onto 6x6 paper.
I hoard paper pads, but don’t often use patterned on cards. I was delighted to use my Wildflower paper by Kaisercraft for a coordinating set of favors. There is no glue holding the box together. The die cuts perfectly sized slits for the flap to tuck into and scores the fold lines. So easy, so quick.
I used two layers of paper for a finished interior. I did not adhere them together, just tucked the flap and they were secure. Double sided paper would be perfect!
I created the three dimensional flowers by first die cutting them into colored card stock. I then shaped each petal and whole flower into a cup shape with a dotting tool on top of a fun foam sheet (a mouse pad or Misti mat would work, as well). I created a fuller flower by layering two cup shaped large flowers and one small. A compact, more bud like, flower by using three of the cup shaped smaller flower die cuts. I adhered the layers with Ranger Collage Medium. A drop at the base of the flower was just right. I then added a stamen by cutting the top off of a yellow disposable mascara wand and adhering with Collage Medium. Liquid glue, or even hot glue, the buds in place on the package. Tuck in a few foil cardstock leaves and flourishes to finish.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this project and are inspired to create your own treat boxes for, perhaps, a wedding, a shower, Easter Sunday place cards or even class treats. Thank you for popping in and I’ll see you soon!
