Stampin' Up!® Springtime Foils Easter Egg Boxes

Thank you for joining me today when I am sharing my Easter egg Boxes I made using Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration free Springtime Foils speciality paper. This paper is absolutely stunning and it is such a good weight that it really does make great boxes and it's FREE!

Mini Easter Egg Boxes  Springtime Foils


I help out at my local Guide group so I want to give them all a little Easter egg with out breaking the bank. So I have bought some inexpensive foiled covered egg and decided to make boxes for them to make them look special. I have made 4 different designs. My original measurements mean that you can only get one from a 12x12 sheet (with LOADS of paper left over) but a small adjustment meant you can 2 from a 12x12 sheet (again with a sizeable amount left over)

I coloured the DSP with an ink pad, I literally covered the paper in ink by turning the pas upside down and dragged it all over the paper until it was covered evenly. You can use a sponge brayer but that will take time to build up the colour but if you want a lighter finish then this would be the way to do it.

Measurements

  • 6 1/4" x 7 1/2"
  • Score on long side @ 1 3/4" - 3 1/2" - 5 1/4" - 7
  • Score on short side @ 1 3/4" - 4" - 5 3/4"

Alternate Measurements (to get 2 boxes from a 12x12 sheet) 

  • 6  x 7 1/2"
  • Score on long side @ 1 3/4" - 3 1/2" - 5 1/4" - 7
  • Score on short side @ 1 1/2" - 3 3/4" - 5 1/2"

Box 1

  • I used the smallest Stitched Oval to make an aptiture in the front of the box
  • I used the little flower die from Petals and More die set
  • I made a 'Happy Easter' tag using the Tiny Tiny sentiments
  • This was attached to twie that was tied round the top.
