Hello Honey Bee friends! I had so much fun creating this treat box for Easter using the adorable, and so versatile, Sweet Treat Box Honey Cuts! This is such an easy project to create and can be decorated as simple or as fancy as you want!
I began by die cutting two each of the box dies from the Sweet Treat Box and one of the bottom from yellow card stock. I added double-sided tape to each of the tabs. Before assembling, I worked on the little scene for the front of the box.
For the eggs, I used the single egg from the Spring Chicks set. I stamped out six eggs onto white card stock. The gingham eggs were stamped with the Bitty Patterns stamp and Distress Oxide inks in Wilted Violet, Mowed Lawn, Mermaid Lagoon, and Squeezed Lemonade. The other two are stamped in the same colors using two of the stamps from the Background Builder stamp set. There are coordinating dies, but I chose to fussy cut them to eliminate the white border. I decorated two of the eggs with Crystal Gem Stickers from the Perfect Petals and Ocean Breeze packs.
Next I die cut the scallop rectangle from the Sweet Treat Box Honey Cuts. I used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide, a Detail Blender Brush and the cloud stencil from the Outdoor Scene Builder stencil set to add a few clouds. I adhered this to the box side that has the heart in the flap.
For the grass, I die cut green card stock with the Grass Border Honey Cuts twice. I used a Detail Blender Brush to add some Lucky Clover Distress Oxide to the background grass to make it a bit darker. I stacked up the grass borders and die cut them with the scallop rectangle die from the Sweet Treat Box Honey Cuts. I popped up the shorter grass with foam tape and adhered it to the taller piece and adhered both to the scallop rectangle.
I then arranged the eggs and adhered them with a bit of liquid glue. I stamped and colored the bees and butterfly from Bill The Bear stamp set and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I popped up one bee and the butterfly with a small foam square and added them to the little scene. I picked out some clay flower from the Treat Shoppe Clay Bits and added tiny drops of Ripened Pumpkin Nuvo Crystal Drops for the flower centers. I used liquid glue to adhere them to the scene. Next I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Treats stamp set in black ink and die cut it and the small scallop rectangle with dies from the Sweet Treat Box Honey Cuts. I adhered them together and popped it up onto the top flap with foam tape. With the scene finished, I removed the tape liner from the tabs and assembled the box.
This box really does hold a good amount of treats! I could have put another egg in, but I had a lot of Easter grass in there too!
How fun is this?!! What treats would you want to see in your treat box? I hope you all are well and that you are finding some stress relief through your crafting! I know i am! Thank you so much for stopping by–I do appreciate it!
