Pillow Box Die - Easter Treat

It's April and I haven't posted in a week and a half! Where have I been? Well, it's a super busy time and if I went into details, we'd all be tired! lol! So, for now, I'll just say that I have pictures and projects to share but need more time to get everything done. I will hopefully be catching up in April and will try to post lots. :)

Our new pillow box die is so fun! You cut two, stick the two together, press down on the curved seams and that's it - cute treat box! Simple and fun! I used the gingham paper pack for the box. Isn't that wonderful?!
I took a little blush baker's twine to finish it off and tie it closed. Oops - should have folded both of my pillow box flaps the same way. Ah well, it's how I roll.

I thought it would be fun to use the cute little chick from the Color Me Happy stamp set on this project. A quickie glue pen and some papaya flocking made for a fun fuzzy chick, don't you think?

The paper flower is a forget-me-not flower that is white. I sprayed a little golddust splash on a clear acrylic block, spritzed a little blush and grapefruit splash onto the block and then mixed all the colors and shimmer together. Dipped the flower in and let it soak up the color. When it dried, it had this lovely variance of color with a shimmer of gold mixed in. The picture doesn't do it justice, but trust me, it has a pretty shimmer to it. The flower is finished off with a silver sequin. Easy peasy. :)
Wouldn't these be fun at each person's place setting on Easter morning? What's inside?  Target had individual packs of bunny shaped gummies in the Easter section and they fit inside perfectly!
