Creme Egg Exploding Easter Box

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

Gingham Gala Easter Bunny Pouches

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.

Wishing you all a wonderful Easter xx
