Crate Paper – Easter Party Favors

Hello, CP friends. Easter is upon us, and today I’m sharing a pair of simple and easy gift boxes that would be perfect as party favors as well as little décor pieces for your festive table. The Sunny Days collection has lovely colors and patterns that fit the theme really well.

The boxes are very easy to make. I used a cut file for mine, but I’m also sharing a tutorial in case you don’t own an electronic die cutting machine.

I started by choosing the patterned paper, which I trimmed to obtain two square pieces, measuring 5.5” and 6.5” respectively.

I then scored the 5.5” one at 7/8” on all four sides, and the other at 1 3/8”.

After pressing down the folds, I made a cut on each side (as in the photo) and used double-sided tape to secure both bottom and top of the box.

Once ready, I decorated the lids. For the first box, I fussy cut three butterflies from the Blissful paper and flowers from one of the papers in the 12×12 Paper Pad – I love the gold foiled accents of the outlines! I first arranged the flowers, adhering them down with foam dots for dimension, then continued on with the butterflies, the mint paper flower, and a tag. For the tag, I simply cut it from patterned paper, punched a whole on one side, and added the pink bow. The “love” black puffy sticker comes from the Summertime Glossy Puffy Stickers. I finished it with three flower rhinestones.

For the second box, I used the foliage from the same Summertime Glossy Puffy Sticker as my bottom layer. Then I simply added three paper flowers in different colors to form a cluster; to fill the empty spots I also die cut some additional foliage and tuck it under them. For the sentiment, I adhered one from the Clear Sticker Book onto white cardstock and fussy cut around it to make it opaque and thicker. I placed it in the center of the flower cluster. Glossy puffy hearts finished the box.

I hope you’ll give these gift boxes a try. They came together in no time, and are so fun to make.

Thank you for stopping by.
