I love exploding boxes – they are fairly straightforward to make, and when you decorate them with beautiful papers and ribbons you can achieve such a wow factor!
I wanted to make an Easter gift box with a twist, and the How Sweet it is DSP has such a fun yet pretty vibe. I never thought I would like this paper as much as I do, and its set off perfectly by those gorgeous butterflies!
At the suggestion of my husband would you believe (!) I made these boxes slightly shallower at 3″ tall x 4″ wide and the insert provides a neat holder for those chocolate eggs.
I decided to use Cadbury Oreo eggs for this project as they were a good match to the DSP, but Cadbury Creme Eggs would fit just as well.
Wishing you all a wonderful Easter 🐣 xx
