Quick’n Easy Last Minute Easter Treats

It’s Keep It Simple Sunday so you’re getting quick’n easy last minute Easter treats. You can whip these up in less than 5 minutes (more like 3!) with a few punches, glue and an adorable stamp. Just like the bunny from A Good Day stamp set.

Who Wouldn’t LOVE These Treats?

I love to give – and receive – mini treats. Anytime is good, but for special occasions, it’s great! These are so quick and easy to put together, you can get the kids involved and make up a batch for them to take to school.

While I’ll bet your last minute Easter treats won’t last very long, you’ll be sharing the joys of spring with everyone – in a mini chocolate bite!

Easter Bunny Bags with the Gift Bag Punch Board | Facebook Live Replay

Come on in for your free online class with Easter Bunny bags with the Gift Bag Punch Board and my Facebook Live Replay video. I’ve been “big tipping” it again, this time for how to watercolour with professional results EVERY time!

Easter is probably our next big spring occasion we can craft for. Well, after the four leaf clover day that is🍀.

And it’ll be hopping around sooner than we think. So give a little twitch of your whiskers and get a jump on making your goodie bags with this oh-so-cute bunny from Fable Friends. (OK that’s enough of the bad rabbit puns☺️!)

Let me show you the project.

Isn’t he the sweetest? (and I’m not sure why he’s a HE, he just is for me, even with pink buttons!)

OK it’s come clean time…

  1. who has a gift bag punch board and it hasn’t seen the light of day?
  2. when was the LAST time you did simple watercolouring to decorate a project rather than an over-the-top-gorgeous-but-five-hours-in-the-crafting marathon?
  3. who would LOVE to get some simple gift bags made EARLY for family, friends and coworkers with minimal time and effort?

I say, Pick ME!

But before we get started here’s what you’ll need for supplies:

How to Paint a Box Quick and Easy | Facebook LIVE Replay

Today I’m sharing my Facebook Live where I showed how to paint a box quick and easy!  If you missed or, or even if you didn’t, now’s the perfect chance to see my projects up close and personal!

How to Paint a Box Super FAST!


This mini pizza box takes on a personality a friend, a brother, a co-worker is just going to love to pieces.  In fact everyone else will be…are you ready for it…green with envy🤣.  I chose Tranquil Tide to gussy up the box to match the cute four leaf clovers from the Amazing Life stamp set.   

See that oh-so-cool design on the box itself?  Sort of like etched ice? That’s totally unplanned – and unexpected!  Let me show you how it happens!

How to Paint a Box Quick and Easy


Cuttin’ It Up!

  • Whisper White cardstock 2″ x 11″
  • Tranquil Tide cardstock 2 pieces each 1″ x 11″
  • Watercolor paper – scraps
  • Whisper White flax ribbon – a piece about 7″ long

At 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ x 1″ these mini pizza boxes are really not so mini after all.  They’re a a fabulous size for all kinds of goodies:

  • a set of handmade 3″ x 3″ notecards
  • large cookies (or a couple smaller ones) (because they’re food safe too)
  • chocolates and treats of all kinds
  • a gift card
  • moola
  • jewelry
  • a spool of ribbon
  • mini stamps and embellishments

Plus they’re an inexpensive way to add your own personal touch to a gift.  They come in a package of 8 so they’re only just a smidge over a dollar a piece.

It’s Your Turn

A drop or two of ink refill is all you need to add to your Stampin’ Spritzer.  Shake it up and get busy spritzing your way to gorgeous ice-etched designs.   Here are all the supplies I pulled out to make mine.  I’d love it if you support my business and order your supplies through me.  Thanks so much.

How to Paint a Box Quick and Easy

As I usually do on my Facebook Lives, there were three versions.  Let’s take a peek at each one.  Leave me a comment with which one is your favourite and why!

Or maybe you’d rather not add colour? Try your hand with your designer papers to wrap around your box like I did here

So thanks for stopping by today. I’d love to see what you design with this technique and these cute little pizza boxes.  What colour do you think you’ll spritz on them first?  Lovely Lipstick for Valentines?  Highland Heather for Easter?  Or maybe you need a gift for a friend changing jobs?  Maybe Pacific Point or Balmy Blue will be just the ticket.

Be sure to mark your calendar for my Wednesday Facebook Lives over on my Facebook Page so you can get in on the action while I’m stamping, chatting and generally making a mess!  While my next one won’t show you how to paint a box quick and easy like this one did, I promise it will be fun too!

I LOVE these easy to make Valentines treat boxes for lots of reasons!

  • they really ARE super easy
  • you can make them in a flash!
  • they showcase the brand new Meant to Be cling bundle
  • they’re ultra ultra sweet
  • and…what a perfect size for a little treat!
I LOVE These Super Quick Easy to Make Valentines Treat Boxes!

The All My Love designer series paper is the star of all these little treats. Lovely Lipstick and Whisper White. Maybe not quite as bold as Real Red but perfect for this time of year with hearts and flowers.

Of all the paper, there’s only a couple that I think scream Valentines! The one with the larger bold hearts like the “You make me happy” treat box is the one that jumps out at me right away. Do you think there are others?

I’m pretty sure all the rest can be used for almost ANY occasion. Like on this pretty friend card I shared a few weeks ago. Take a peek at all of them here. Which one is your favourite?

OK, how about we get to the video so you can see how easy these are to make? I’ve got two different designs for you in my Facebook Live Replay.
