Easter Cuppie Treat and Blog Candy Winner

Since it's never too late to start thinking about Easter (it's only four weeks away!) I decided to make a sweet little Easter treat box. And, I'll leave this behind for my nephew who lives here in Calgary, since I won't be seeing him at Easter time. I know...it's purple, but he's a good kid and he'll appreciate it anyway.  :)

I started out with one of the fabulous Favour Boxes from Taylored Expressions, the Heart Handle Box in Majestic Purple Medium. The biggest decision when ordering is which colour to choose...there's just SO many! The boxes are shipped flat and come pre-scored. Before I assembled it I ran it through the Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder to add a little texture, then I folded along the score lines and added a smidge of adhesive...that's it! You could easily whip these up for kids treats or they'd be super cute at each place setting for a luncheon or dinner. 

Since this is an Easter treat box, I chose an image and sentiment from Sweet Spring. The Cuppie is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White cardstock and coloured with copics. I added some Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to the dots on the egg for a little sparkle...they're just the right size for small details! All the other supplies I used on this project (ribbons, flower, brad, carstock) are from the Easter Key Ingredients. I've already used my Easter Key Ingredients for several projects now and I still have so much left...it's a fabulous value!

This super cute! Sadly, I seem to neglect purple in a major way... looks like it's time to start reaching for it again!
