Take just a few minutes to make this cute easter box for treats and watch the little (and big) ones’ eyes light up on Easter morning! This one is so stinkin’ sweet you’ll want to make up oodles of them!
Plus, it’s easy since I have an edited video replay to show you how to construct the quick and easy treat box to make with paper – also known as a mini mailbox!
I made one for Valentines and featured the Adorable Owls stamps that were a free Sale-a-bration item at the time.
But then I thought, why not try one for Easter too?
So here it is! (Oh and I’ve got all the details below on how I made the Easter accents down below)
Now who wouldn’t love to get that cutie?
What Makes This So Special?
The stamps are from the Easter Bunny set found on page 52 of the Spring Mini Catalogue. Although it is part of a punch bundle to cut out the bunny on the bottom left, the punch is unfortunately currently not available.
But the good news is it’s coming back in May! (I know after Easter, but at least you’ll be able to add it into your stash then.)
In addition to the bunny, there are lots of other things that add up to the overall adorable package, but another big part of the attraction of today’s mini mailbox?
The Pool Party dotted designer paper! I thought it was perfect for a soft spring treat!
It comes from the mega package Design a Daydream, which is a host reward in our soon to be retired 2022-23 Annual Catalogue. And I’ll bet you’ll want to get your hands on some when you see how much you get!
24 different patterns!
With colours ranging from Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Petal Pink to Blackberry Bliss, there’s something here for everyone! Here are all of the pages you get in the package.
OK, let me give you some details to change up the Valentine’s box for this Easter one!
How to Make This Cute Easter Box for Treats
Here’s a close up for you!
Jo’s Design Details
- Add a bit of colour to the bunny: I used Smoky Slate light and dark. Stampin’ Blends to add some colour but only to her tummy and ears since I thought a pretty much white hippity hopper was cuter! Also take a swipe with a Petal Pink Stampin Blends to the pads of the feet, her nose and the inside of her ears.
- Add contrasting colour to the eggs: Easter is all about pastel colours so I pulled out another few colours (besides the Petal Pink) to add some interest. You can see Pool Party, Highland Heather and So Saffron on the eggs.
- Give a little backdrop drama with a Petal Pink label: To ground the bunny, and match the ears, I glued one Petal Pink Decorative Circle punch to the top of the mailbox.
- Attach a bow: I know for some of you, this just isn’t on! But this one in sheer Pool Party really finished off the treat box! To give you a hand, take a peek at this super short video to learn how to make one the easy way!
