Easter Egg Box

I LOVE this box idea that QBee on SCS came up with. The gal is amazing!!! She has designed this box as well as other wonderful box ideas that I will make up and show you later AND she shares her patterns!! Search her gallery and the forums for her wonderful ideas. The bunny is cut from my Cricut. I then drew all the doodles and face and "colored" with a damp Q-Tip and watercolor crayon.
I wanted a quick gift to give a friend that has been having a tough time at work as well as putting in long hours. Nothing better than chocolate to get you thru, huh? Ü
I have no idea who makes the soft turquoise embossed cardstock. It was in a trade box at a crop I went to. I've had it for awhile and didn't know why I even picked it up, but now I do. Ü I am loving the soft turquoise with chocolate and then add blush blossom, soft pink, etc for an accent color.

Have you been to Wal-Mart in the Easter candy section? I LOVE what they did this year. They have color sections. There is pink M & M's, pink wrapped chocolates, pink gifts, pink Peeps, etc, then a section of purple, then turquoise, green, etc. So fun to make a coordinating gift basket! I chose turquoise foil wrapped eggs for this project and it was perfect! If you click on the picture you can see where I stamped the blush blossom insert with the Linen stamp.Here is the side view. Brenda (QBee) even thought to design these punched 1/2 circles to make it easier to take off the top lid!
