Easter is sneaking up really fast!  I made invitations last week and mailed them all out to our family to invite them over for lunch on Easter Sunday.  It is always a fun day to get the extended family all together in one place.  So with Easter on my mind I decided to make something with that theme using this weeks challenge.

This week at Create with Connie & Mary we were issued a sketch challenge!

2013 Thursday Challenges-006

I wanted to create a little box for my class this Friday so I thought I would use the sketch as the basis for the box design.  And here is the end result –


As you can see it pretty much follows the sketch.  I decided to use the scallops on the outside and layered squares on the inside – that’s kind of the opposite of what’s on the sketch – so maybe you can say I turned it inside out.  And instead of a button I have an egg and a collection of little bunnies on the side.

Here are the details on this box –

  • The front and back of the box are the Scallop Square Bigz Die – and on the front I pierced a hole in each scallop.
  • Between the two scallop squares I made myself a box – same idea as last weeks project (and I guess I’m still stuck on last weeks color challenge too – I used basically those same colors again).  This box is just bigger.
  • A layer of Summer Starfruit card stock and a piece of the designer paper from Birds of a Feather.
  • The bunnies are from Ears to You – one of the single stamps – I stamped them in Crumb Cake, Summer Starfruit and Raspberry Ripple and cut them out.  I added a tiny pearl eye to each one and then one got a dahlia tail!
  • Behind the bunnies I punched an oval from Primrose Petals card stock and used the piercing template to pierce around it.
  • I tied Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the front layer.
  • There is a little Happy Easter tag.
  • And a Summer Starfruit ribbon handle.
  • Fill with your favorite treat and give to someone special!
