Welcome back crafters. Did I get your attention with the subject line? I know my interest would be perked. Ha. Chocolate? I love Chocolate!!! Today I'm sharing a cute Easter treat gift.
Adorable right? This mini egg carton would be perfect to give to a child, grandchild, friend, neighbor, co-worker or really anyone you can think of with their favorite candy or easter eggs or little gifts. I mean there are endless possibilities with gift giving. Wouldn't you agree?
I chose not to color the egg carton. (The real reason was I couldn't decide on a color and didn't feel like I had the patience to wait for it to dry completely - I really just wanted to get to decorating it!). You can sponge it, spritz it, color it with markers or even paint. However you color it, be sure to let it dry completely before decorating and adding edibles.
Since this was an Easter treat gift I needed chocolate and grass for the inside. I first began thinking about the grass. I could just go out and buy some at the store but I figured out a way to create my very own out of any of the Stampin' Up! colors. How FUN, matching grass! SMIRK!! First I took a piece of Wild Wasabi card stock (measured 5 1/2" x 8 1/2") and my Simply Scored tool and scored every 1/4" on the 8 1/2" side. Then I took my Fringe Scissors and cut along the 5 1/2" side all the way. I cut up the entire piece of card stock. The final step of this pile of cut and scored Wild Wasabi card stock was to squish it. Pretty much scrunch it up (like what you would do with curls in your hair) you will start to notice that some of the pieces are getting some kinks in it. You want it to look similar to the crinkled grass you could buy but this one is homemade and by you!
Now I added Hershey Nuggets for the inside (It's what I had on hand that was close to being Easterlike candy). I wrapped the Hershey's nuggets in the matching Succulent Garden DSP as I did the top of the carton and the inside too. The measurements are 1 1/8" x 3 1/4".
Creative Color Combination
I was going to use pastels but I wanted a shade brighter.
