Easter Boxes

I had a lovely play time this week making a couple of little gift boxes for Easter.

The gift box was cut with a Lawn Fawn tiny gift box die, I really love this die, it's so useful!

The first box I decorated was this one with a nest and little eggs.  The nest is made from wound up string, the miniature eggs were made using a Mod Podge Mod Melts mold - which I've owned for years and never used! I guess every crafter has things stashed away for a rainy day lol! I added a beautiful feather and a torn piece of a book page.  I hate the thought of tearing up a book but thankfully this book was already water damaged and had been rescued from the rubbish bin.

Inspired by the outcome of my first box, I decided to make a second.

For this box I cut the rabbit with a an Impression Obsession die - it's such a cute die! I made a miniature pompom because all bunnies need a fluffy tail lol and I made the carrot with Fimo clay and some embroidery thread for the leaves.

I plan to fill them with mini eggs

I'm now thinking about a third box.  Hopefully I'll be back soon.....thanks for stopping by!
