Today I would like to share a completed Easter Project. I wanted to make something fun and colourful for the younger members of my family. I decided to use a gift box punch board that my friend and Aunty, Donna had lent me. I picked a nice bright green card to make the boxes from:
I wanted the box lid to lay flat, therefore I did not use the notch punch for this particular project.
From here I wanted to start adding layers:
I put these decorative panels on all four faces and then proceeded to the lid section:
For the lid I wanted to create a square shape. I used an embossed cream, square panel to give a uniform lidded look. To these panels I added some fun and quirky embellishments; I punched out some larger flower shapes and curled the petals to make a nest shape. I then added the layered butterflies:
My main original thought was to use some plain yellow little chicks – when I saw these chicks with little hats on though, I could not resist lol! These were purchased from The Range.
Each box has been filled with a selection of treat goodies, a layer of shredded yellow tissue paper and then some chocolate eggs.
The lids stay shut with thin, circular magnets which are quite strong. I covered each magnet with a punched circle in the same green card. This does two things: Firstly, it covers the magnets giving a neat and tidy appearance. Secondly, it reduces the magnets strength just enough to stop them been pulled off the box 🙂
I hope that you have enjoyed todays post – Take Care and Happy Crafting!!
Such cute boxes, and you made so many too! I’m always jealous of people who can make things in quantity like that – takes me so long to make things and then I get bored and want to move on to other things 😀

Thankyou! I understand about getting bored sometimes so I do batch makes in steps eg: I make all the box bases first , then the panels etc. That way I can finish one part completely and have other projects on the go at the same time 🙂 I know exactly where I have gotten too when I return to it later. 🙂
