Get Ready for Easter
Now that spring has finally arrived, my thoughts turn to Easter and all the traditional activities associated with the season. Egg hunts, visits with the Easter Bunny, Easter bonnets, and of course, Easter decorations!
I just love decorating for Easter. In fact, last year was the first in many, many years that I was able to put out my Easter decorations. I made me so happy to see them again! I can’t wait to put them out this year and I have a new decoration to add to my collection!
Egg Shaped Box
A few days ago, I was scrolling videos on YouTube when I came across one posted back in 2020 by Gemma Clarke. It was such a unique creation that I knew I had to try it. I did change up some of her measurements and I decided to use Designer Series Paper instead of cardstock but that’s it. Other than tweaking the measurements just a little, I kept everything else the same.
These boxes are “eggslent” for holding little treats or just for decorating. Hang them from your Easter tree for fun pops of color and design!
Check out my video tutorial.
Measurements, Supplies, and an Added Bonus
To create this box, you will need a piece of Designer Series Paper or cardstock cut to 8 1/2″ x 6″ and some ribbon for the top. Watch the tutorial for scoring, cutting, and folding instructions. It’s not as hard as it looks. In fact after the first one, it will become easier to make. As an added bonus, I created a full size template for you to use to make it easier to create this pretty and unique box. Just click the button to get your copy of the template.

Give it a Try!
I hope you will give this project a try. I think you will really have fun making it and once you get your first one completed, you will want to make several more! Let me know if you try it and how it went. Happy Stamping!
