Spring & Easter Blog Hop - Fun & Simple Easter Treat Boxes

Welcome!  I am happy to be participating in this international blog hop started by my friend and fellow Gentlemen Crafter; Rene Guenther from Leipzig Germany. I am sure we will see lots of fun and bright spring projects from the, almost 20, participants in the hop.  Let's get started.

I have fallen in love with the matchbook treat boxes 154285 - they are so versatile, and dead simple to decorate and turn into lovely little treat carriers or keepsake drawers for special remembrances, jewellery, trinkets, etc.  Today I decided to go super simple in preparation for Easter, and just wrap a couple in some Designer Series Paper and embellish them with a little ribbon, some butterflies and some Easter eggs.

You don't need to over complicate something with tones of layers and doilies and ribbon and ... and... to make it beautiful.  Sometimes simple is best, and you just let the patterns and colours speak for themselves.

For my first box I used some Designer paper from the Hydrangea suite on the outside.  I love the purple and blue colour palate.  For the box liner I used Artistry Blooms Designer Paper.  For my second box I used Artistry Blooms for bot the wrap, the box liner and the eggs.  The butterflies are cut from the Butterfly Bijou paper, which sadly has sold out as of today in Canada.... so I'll be hoarding that!  The sentiment is from Arrange A Wreath, and I used the coordinating dies to cut the little eggs out. I did add some in-colour enamel dots as well.  I hope you like these.

There are only two measurements to speak of - both very simple:
- the box wrap measures 4-1/8" x 5-7/8"  10.5cm x 15cm
- the box liner measures 2-1/2" x 3-7/8"   6.4cm x 10cm

Now, it's time to go on to the next presenter in our hop...
