Cut Cardstock ~ Easter Treats

Hello and Happy Easter Season!  I just love sending treats to all my great little's on special holidays as they're all in different states and it's fun for them to get some "happy mail" from their great auntie Birgit.   Today's project uses the wonderful Curious Metallics Cardstock.  I do love the sheen on this beautiful cardstock and it cuts like butter using any dies.

Let's get started:
I purchased this cute mini egg carton in the dollar section at Target.  I just knew it would be fun to decorate up for Easter.  I cut an MFT scalloped rectangle out of White Gold Curious Metallic Cardstock and adhered it to the top of the egg carton using Score-Tape Premium Double Sided Adhesive.  I tied a strip of ribbon around the box, leaving the bow to the right side of the box.
I cut this wonderful Tutti Designs Floral Bunny out of Chocolate Curious Metallic Cardstock and backed the negative spaces using scraps of cardstock from my stash.
I cut this detailed Easter Egg from Top Dog Dies using Cryogen White Curious Metallic Cardstock for the background and Lime Curious Metallic Cardstock for the detailed part of the egg and layered them.  I wish you could see this in real life as it's truly stunning!
The egg is adhered to the scalloped rectangle using Glue Dots and the bunny is adhered using Double Sided Foam Adhesive Squares to add dimension.
I finished it off by adhereing some lovely dimensional flowers using Glue Dots.  

I hope you enjoyed today's project.  Curious Metallic Cardstock is on sale for the rest of this month so ~~~hop~~~ on over to the Cut Cardstock Store take advantage of this awesome deal!    You can also find us on FacebookTwitter and Pinterest.

Cute idea.......I would never have thought to decorate an egg carton. I'm sure they will love what you put inside as much as how you've decorated the outside.

A fabulous idea for decorating an egg box! It looks too good to open but I'm sure your great nieces or nephews will love opening it up to discover the goodies inside!
The dies you have used are just gorgeous. 😊
