You're a Good Egg

The Way's to Use it challenge over on Split Coast was to use something new - today I'm using my new Nestabilities Nested Eggs as well as my new stamp set called Lil Buddies by Waltzingmouse Stamps on this cute little Easter Treat Box!
First I stamped the top of the box with a zigzag background stamp. Then I stamped the egg frame, inside panel and box bottom with a dotted background stamp (Off Beat Backgrounds ) I used the Nested Eggs to cut out the center of the cover - then cut out a larger egg with the small egg inside it to make a frame around the opening. I adhered a piece of acetate inside the cover.
I cut another egg for the tag that I stamped with this cute little hatching chick. I added an eyelet and tied it with a narrow silk ribbon to the saddle stitched ribbon wrapped around the box. I cut the sentiment with a Labels Trio Spellbinders die.
And look at the cute panel on the inside that holds the eggs!
You will find Qbees Easter Egg box template in the forums over on Split Coast here. I'll be making about 9 more of these for an Easter sale at my church - I think it's just adorable don't you??!
