EASTER TREAT CONTAINERS | with Karen

Every Easter, I find myself on a crafty mission to create treat containers. I would like to say that my intentions are honourable, but the truth is that creating treat containers this time of the year might be ever so slightly self-serving! You see, when a crafter creates treat containers, like these ones that I created using Easter Parade, some Doodlebug textured cardstock and Petite Prints, you have to fill them up with something. And invariably, as I am filling them up, a "few" might happen to end up in your mouth! But just a "few" of course! So in case you needed an excuse to craft and snack at the same time, I thought I would share the sketch I created for these easy milk carton-inspired boxes using a piece of textured cardstock cut to 11.5" x 5.75"(you can get 2 out of every 12 x12 sheet).
One you do all your cutting and scoring, it will look like this:
Note: when I created these initially, the top part of my carton was wider than I decided to keep it so the top flap in this picture are wider than your will be. Follow the sketch as your guide for the measurement. I love the size of these because they are big enough to hold my favourite chocolate egg treats as well as some of the mini ones too!
I embellished them with the Easter Parade paper matted on white paper and then topped them off with some Doodlebug Sprinkles. The tops were trimmed with a flower I created with Petite Prints , a mini doily and mini clothes pin. I then grabbed my Hoppy Easter stamp set for a sentiment and my new set Occasions - Holidays for the sweet little bunny and these were all done! And while these would make a great addition to an Easter hunt, I think they would also be great as favours on your Easter table. Or perhaps send a few off to those you love because it certainly true that we could all use a little chocolate and Doodlebug sunshine right now, don't you agree? Look, if you are anything like me, you don't need an excuse to indulge every once and awhile! But a little work of advice - buy the big bag of chocolately treats to fill up these beauties when you make them because you deserve a treat too!

  2. After you score do you cut on the dotted lines or the solid lines? I'm a little confused about how it all goes together.
