Easter Madness

As Easter looms closer by the crafting second, I'm at it like a mad March Hare trying to get all my Easter Gifts ready in time. Here are my latest creations....

A decorated box of miniature chocolate bars:

Choccie box, Pink Petticoat Spring Wishes Collection, Pro_Markers

On the inside of the box, all the choccie bars are individually wrapped. The egg image is cut out from one of the decorative papers and the chick was from a free download kit - thanks Liz :). I didn't have an egg shaped punch so I used a balloon one and trimmed the ties off afterwards. Saved buying an egg one especially. Cute 'lil bunny coloured with Pro-Markers and mounted on matching papers.

Egg Gift Box:

Chocolate eggs, Pink Petticoat Spring Wishes Collection, plain ribbon, Papermania Acetate

I saw the pattern for this box over on Split Coast Stampers but it didn't fit the Creme Eggs in so I had to adapt it - a lot! I have improved my box making skills and can say hand on heart that the lid fits the base this time! I printed the card so it's patterned on one side and then used the sanded plain colours for the reverse sides.

The chick image is from the freebie kit Liz is giving away on her blog fab isn't it? I printed the matching ribbon on my Epson, if you missed my tutorial on printing your own ribbon, you can see it here.

Inside the goodie box...

Kind of thinking about keeping this one as I like it so much!

And finally for today, an Easter card:

Again, used the same kits and my printed ribbon. I'm in the middle of making a selection of goodie bags and Easter cards so hopefully I'll get them finished tonight and on here some time tomorrow.

Got my parents coming to visit me and their Grandson tomorrow so if I haven't finished my goodies, I'll be in trouble with my nephews and niece on Sunday!
