Easter treats...

I've been busy making Easter treats for the grands who will be coming over tomorrow to have Easter dinner with us. I just got a new unbranded die off of eBay for a small milk carton container and decided to use it.
For each little container, I had to make two die-cuts and adhere them together. It's very easy, and they go together in an obvious way - no instructions or tutorials needed! I added a piece of cellophane packaging material on the inside to enclose each window, and cut the little circle embellishments with some assorted dies and punches. These went together SO quickly! I'm sure you can tell that I put them together pretty fast by the looks of my wonky ribbon bows.

Here's a peek at the backside, where I've added a tiny tag with their name. If you're interested in this die, here's a link to one company that sells it on eBay. You'll find a number of other companies that sell it by doing a search for "cutting dies box."

I also made these treat covers for some Kit Kat candy bars. I just made up this cover in my head. Nothing fancy, just a little more Easter-y than looking at the candy wrapper. The bunny is  Darice die, the butterfly and grass are Fiskars punches.

Here you can see how I've sandwiched the candy bar in my little holder. I think I cut a piece of cardstock to 3" X 10". I scored this at 4 3/4" and 5 1/4 " to give me the 1/2" base in the center. I used a Spellbinders #8 label die to cut the fancy edge at the top, punched a hole and added a ribbon.

I also added a couple strips of double-sided tape with my ATG gun to one side to hold the candy bar in place. It worked perfectly, and the candy seems quite secure.

I will be busy cooking tomorrow and celebrating with family. We are promised a nice warm day with sunshine. The TV weather people had better be right for a change!

If you also celebrate this holiday, I wish you a blessed Easter!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Oh wow these are fab Cheryl, bet they loved getting their personalised treats! Hope you had a lovely Easter day and got your sunshine - we'd a day of heavy showers, but it was still lovely to spend it with family x

Oh such fun boxes for the Easter treats. I usually have good intentions but time gets away from me.
