JAI#204 ~ Easter Treat Box

Hello Crafters,

The minute I saw this Colour Challenge at Just Add Ink I knew straight away what I wanted to do, but it’s not a card!

As this year is passing by so quickly already, I have had to think about Easter super early. I have been watching many YouTube videos on different styles of Easter Treat Boxes, but they were either too small or not quite what I wanted, so got creating and came up with my very own style Easter Treat Box with perforated tear opening!  This uses 1 sheet of A4 cardstock for the base!!!

The box is Crumb Cake cardstock with Pistachio Pudding DSP from the In Colours Paper Stack. The clear window is punched with the Extra Large Oval punch with a sheet of acetate behind. A perforating tool was used to create the perforation after the DSP was glued down.

I stamped the bunny, from the Baby We’ve Grown Stamp Set (Wood #133086, Clear #133089) in Crumb Cake Ink on Pistachio Pudding cardstock and fussy cut. The sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments is stamped in gold encore on Whisper White, punched with Word Window and mounted onto Crumb Cake punched from the Modern Label punch. I added some of the Gold Baker’s Twine around the bunny’s neck.

This treat box can hold more than 150g of chocolate easter eggs (I have put in 25 eggs)!!!

A few people have asked for instructions on this or for me to make a video…. that would be a challenge in itself, but here goes, Easter Treat Box Tutorial!

Why don’t you have a go at some of the weekly challenges too on the Just Add Ink page!

Yay, I got an Honorable Mention for this at Just Add Ink.

Birthday Calendar

Hello Crafters,

Today I have a craft project for you, to help you remember those birthdays during the year!

This is so much easier to have hanging on a wall to glance at quickly and see who is having a birthday this month, don’t you agree?

Birthdays Calendar

I have used the Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper (#130145) and the coordinating cardstock; Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, Crisp Canteloupe, Bermuda Bay, Summer Starfruit and Basic Gray. I used the 3/4″ circle punch for the Months and the 1″ circle punch for the names hanging from the gorgeous new Gold Baker’s Twine (#132975) in the Occasions Catalogue.

The “Birthdays” were die cut with the Typeset Alphabet Bigz dies (#127553) in Raspberry Ripple cardstock.

The white background was embossed with the Arrows TIEF (#132187), also in the new Occasions Catalogue, before being mounted onto a piece of heavy brown card that came as the backing sheet with the 12×12 Foil sheets. Waste not, want not, is my motto!!!!
