Easter Boxes

OK, back to stamping and paper projects!!  Last month I shared the 'tissue box' card we made at our last Avid Inkers meeting.  Well finally I have found a moment to share the second project we made as we start heading towards Easter!  It's such a cute little project!

Ta Da!!  We made these cute little matchboxes, appropriately decorated for Easter!  Oh I wish I wish I had a die to cut these little boxes.  Imagine how many you could make quickly!!

I used the Sycamore Street papers from Sale-a-Bration as my feature paper and of course, matched it perfectly with Summer Starfruit as my box base.  Touches of Island Indigo and Tangerine Tango to match!!

I only had a stash of M&Ms to put in my Easter box.  Of course, it didn't take long for Jessica to find them, so they're only a few left!!

And because I love you all, I've also got the instructions for you too, so you can make along with me!!
