My hidden surprise project is an Easter treat box using the recently released TSG Egg-stra Special stamp set.  Awhile back I made a heart shaped box for Valentines (see here) so I thought why not make a egg shaped box for Easter?!?!  I just love the way it turned out and it was so quick and easy to do too.  

I was drawn to the beautiful sorbet shades of orange in the Echo Park (Dots & Stripes) paper pad.  And that gorgeous Ivory Pleated Satin Trim Ribbon is hands down my most favorite ribbon EVA!!   I'm so excited that I no longer have to horde it since I can get an endless supply at the Ribbon Carousel
 (It even comes in PINK!!)


Here's a little quick "how to" on making the treat box:    For the base I used Spellbinders Classic Ovals & Scalloped Ovals dies.  Next, to create the box you simply cut a 4" x 4" square and a 4 1/8" x 4 1/8" square for the lid.  Score both squares at one inch on all sides.  Fold on your score lines, cut your slits and adhere with Scor-Tape or other strong adhesive.  Creating the entire box, honestly only took me five minutes!!   Wouldn't these little treat boxes be so cute sitting at the Easter table?  This treat box can holds 3-4 Ghiradelli chocolates or you could fill them with Jelly Beans and other little candies.






Need more inspiration to help you get started? Then be sure to stop by the TSG Blog to see the amazing samples that the other Trendsetters have created this week and then play along with us!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
