Explosion Boxes Become Treat Holders

 When we first began seeing explosion boxes for paper crafting several years ago they were used mainly as photo albums for the table top. Our designers however have found they make great treat boxes as well. Take a look....

Sarah's Easter Box is exploding with all around cuteness.I love her addition of the round beaded feet to the box bottom.

The box holds chocolate Easter eggs. You could also personalize this box by adding special photos, quotes or embellishments to the inner side panels.

Ninotchka turned her Explosion Box into a cupcake holder for a birthday celebration. And even better, the cupcake is one she created and handstitched from felt.
 Ninotchka does amazing felt projects that you will love. You'll be seeing more of her handstitched items here. Or you can visit her facebook page and look thru her photos.

 Julie received a wooden owl from her Secret Santa and found this fun way to decorate it using the Wise Night Owl.

Watch her video and you can also see it on her blog.

Nicole plans to use her Carrot Patch Treat Boxes for a table top display. What a great idea! 2 or 3 of these would be wonderful as centerpieces at the Easter dinner table too. Might even be able to fill them with some goodies for guests to take home if you don't mind parting with such cute decor.

Sarah's did up the Carrot Treat box, choosing pastel Easter papers instead of the standard orange. After putting it together she found the box was tall enough not only for all the chocolaty goodies but would also fit pencils and stationery, post-its, stickers - the ideas are endless!

Old -fashioned Sweet Sugar Egg with Paper Becomes a New Keepsake.

Many of us have fond memories of those beautiful sugar eggs at Easter. This sweet tradition continues with these delicately decorated eggs now done with paper.

From The Art of Els Schutte 

Els created this keepsake Sugar Egg using
Sweet Sugar Egg from myscrapchick

After cutting and assembling the paper egg and it's delicate flowered frame Els continued decorating with more mini white paper flowers and paper leaves. She added lace trim behind the frame to create an even more fanciful touch.

 The scene inside the egg was cut and layered using a vintage print of this rabbit.

Els then added a spray of paper flowers to the front and top along with a blue silky ribbon all tied up in a bow. Her sweet sugar egg is so reminiscent of the old fashioned eggs from long ago. But we think hers is even more beautiful than the ones we remember.
