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

When I spotted these adorable chocolate bunny paws in the supermarket, I couldn’t resist making these gorgeous Easter Bunny pouches to hold them. They couldn’t be simpler to make with the envelope punch board, and the finished size of the pouch measures 3″ x 4″.
I am so in love with that Easter bunny from Fable Friends and this time, I coloured him with crumb cake blends.
The gingham gala DSP is so perfect for Spring with its pattern and colour. I earned the matching ribbons during saleabration, but you could achieve a similar effect by colouring some whisper white ribbon with blends. This is also a really cost effective way of achieving ribbon to match your projects.
You can see how I made these Easter pouches by watching the video tutorial for my Beautiful Blizzard Snowflake treat pouches below – although the products used in the video are different, the method and dimensions are exactly the same.
With Easter looming, I have been thinking of our family Easter lunch and table decorations.
I wanted to add a little sophistication to my Easter table this year with these gorgeous Floral Romance Easter crackers. Crackers for Easter? Well why not! These crackers fit a box of mini eggs perfectly 🐣 although there’s room for a few sweet treats of your choice!
Although by nature I’m usually attracted to bright, bold colours, there’s such a soft, feminine elegance to these stunning papers. The spring colours are just beautiful and perfect for this time of year.

I have been refreshing my craft room in recent months and am totally in love with the stunning sale-a-bration Lovely Lipstick foil sheets. I love pink and this foil is just beautiful!
This home decor design is super simple but I love how few supplies you actually to need to make a beautiful addition like this to your home, and the best part is, it’s all handmade!
In person, the vibrant, lush foil looks fabulous against the crisp white background and frame. The white ornate frame is an old Heidi Swapp frame that I’ve been looking to re-purpose for some time, and I love how the bold pink words look in it.
Remember there is still time to earn this gorgeous foil paper for FREE when you place a £45 order in my online shop – but only until Sunday! xx
I love the entire Frosted Floral Suite so making a set of Christmas tags using this beautiful set was a must!
I wanted to keep the colours and design of these tags less traditional and more feminine, whilst still being easy to replicate.
I opted for a rich razzleberry, blackberry bliss and gorgeous grape colour way, set against either a galvanized metallic or sparkle glimmer stitched circle.
I added a subtle silver foil sprig for some interest, and those boxwood wreath embellishments just pop against the tags. The iridescent wreath is currently on sale while stocks last so click on the picture of them below to go straight to my online shop!
Love the simplicity and winter berry colours of these tags, hope you do too xx
This week is all about Christmas tags, and these ones are super cute and easy to put together. I love the stitched shapes framelits dies and how gorgeous these square ones look layered up together.
Although I stayed with a merry merlot/tranquil tide and copper theme throughout, I absolutely love the design break with the buffalo check background stamp. So beautiful, why did I wait so long to use it?!
Having made 6 gorgeous tags, I just had to make a matching box to hold them all in!
Click play on the video below to see how to make the buffalo check tag & tag box.
Hope you love this tag gift set as much as I do, thanks for stopping by today xx
Last weekend was Onstage Local where we celebrated Stampin’ Up’s 30th Anniversary. I was able to meet with lots of other demonstrators, got sneak peaks of future product releases and of course, took part in the time honored tradition of swapping!
I had so much fun putting these mini exploding boxes together as my swaps, and whilst the concept is nothing new, I never get tired of the element of surprise they bring!
My mini treat boxes are designed to hold one Ferraro rocher.
Such a fabulous onstage event, I’m already excited about the next one! Thanks for stopping by today 😘
