Today I want to show you how to make a handmade treat box for spring that’s perfect for Easter too! These are quick to make and so adorable, everyone will be getting one this year!
If you’re like me, during this pandemic I sure am missing getting together with my good friends and family for special occasions. You know, when you eat too much, have some laughs, roll your eyes at the stories, and share in the special feelings and stories of a holiday like Easter.
I’m also missing decorating the table with fun place setting treats for everyone!
But I decided I wasn’t going to let that stop me for Easter. So I’ve made up a few of these little treat boxes. What do you think fits inside them?
Are they not the cutest little things? Once again, I am using the Springtime Joy stamps which are absolutely adorable for these cute packages. And if you wanted, you can get the instructions and could make a card to coordinate by clicking here.

Had you guessed what treat I had tucked inside?
It seems Merci chocolates are loved by everyone. They’re easy to find, come with lots of flavours and are a quick munch of sweetness!
Here’s a closer look at the version that folded closed a bit differently.

Hope You Make Some
You do still have time to make a bunch of these and send them to family and friends who you won’t be able to get together with this Easter. They’ll be so impressed you made them specially for them.
I’d be interested to know which of the three boxes you like the best. The one with the bunny, the chick or the butterfly?
