A few more Easter treat ideas

Mini Milk Carton and Pillow Box Treats

Petal Cone Die Carrot

This weekend is my first craft fair of the year and since it is so close to Easter, most of the products I will be featuring will be for the holiday.  I thought I would share a few of them with you.

I used the Mini Milk Carton Bigz L Die to make a colorful display of Easter treat boxes.  My stamped image is from the Everybunny stamp set, and I used markers to color it in.  I punched it out with the Extra Large Oval punch and placed it on the carton using dimensionals.  A Mini Library Clip was used to keep it closed, and added the Happy Easter that was punched with the Word Window punch.  I made over 24 of these in a variety of colors and make a really nice display.

Next I used the Pillow Box Bigz Die, which was cut using a variety of Designer Series Paper.   Window Sheets were used so you could see what was inside, and I used my retired oval punch to create the opening.  Coordinating ribbons were tied around for added embellishment, as well as my Happy Easter sentiment.  I made a variety of these and filled some with Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs or Hershey Milk Chocolate Eggs.   I also used a lot of my Designer Series Paper that I purchased from the Clearance Rack.  I always make sure to check it out often, because I never know when a good bargain will appear. 

The large carrot was made using the Petal Cone Bigz L Die, and I filled 3" x 5" cellophane bags with jelly beans and placed them inside.  To secure the top, I punched Wild Wasabi cardstock with the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle, and punched holes in the top of the two flaps on the top of the cone as well as on the edges of the scallop circle.  I then tied it closed with Pumpkin Pie 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (retired).  This way they are really easy to open without having to rip apart the cone, and they also are really secured.
