Once cut, the Easter Egg box is a very quick to assemble. The box panels are cut from the same color as the box base, the added details include foiled leaves (from FunLurn.com) and the flowers on the upper panels are made using some ink and a cotton swab. The two colors of the ink, create a soft, subtle look and the finished pattern almost looks like purchased printed paper. Bonus: It only takes a few minutes to add those flowers to the panels.
For the bottom panels, Jan used a basket weave embossing folder… and swipe the raised areas with the darker of the two inks used for the flowers on the upper panels. Lightly ink the edges of the panels before adding them to the egg base. Choose any pattern to decorate the panels…. That’s half the fun!
For the inserts on the inside of the egg, the grass, eggs, chick and bunny were resized to fit inside the egg. Measure the egg bottom opening from side to side to determine fit. Elements and placement will determine the size and height. Adhere them as desired on strips of cardstock and attach the strip to the inside of the egg box bottom with glue or strong tape.
There are so many different ways you can decorate the Easter Egg Box, inside and out!
If desired, add some “grass” and a few jellybeans or chocolate in the back of the egg bottom. Add the top and your Easter Egg box is ready for gifting! Additional details for this project can be found on Jan’s blog. Besides the Easter Egg Box, there are several other products you might be interested in.

After recently viewing the original, animated film of Alice in Wonderland, Jan created this Wonderland version using the Victorian Top Hat file. Roses, hearts, feathers, a pocket watch and more are featured in this Spring themed Wonderland hat design.
This project is easy to recreate.
Assemble the hat side, brim and top as shown in the assembly video using the link above.
A strip of white tulle is used in place of the hat bands. Feathers and hearts were tucked into the tulle and used as additional decoration. A few more hearts were sprinkled around the brim of the hat.
The rolled roses are from the hat file. Jan added some yellow stamens to the center of each rose with a drop of hot glue. The pocket watch is a resized version of the Round Candy Box. The watch measures about 1 ½ inches in diameter and is about ½ inch deep. Jan used hot glue to secure these elements to the hat. Add additional elements to complete the theme of a Wonderland themed hat.

Using shapes from the SCAL Library, select the rabbit ears and hearts.
Jan’s addition of the rosette is easy to replicate using a horizontal rectangle and vertical score lines at regular intervals across the rectangle.
Enjoy your make.
