Easter Egg Box

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!  We're having a day of Little League baseball and some Easter fun (have the eggs hard-boiled, just need to find time to dye them, and am working on our traditional bunny cake!)   So, only time to share quickly today, but did want to get this Easter box posted before Easter (was hoping to have a tutorial done for it, but afraid that will have to wait a bit):

I used the new Ovals Framelits to create the top and bottom of the box, as well as the oval layered pieces for the top and some liners for inside (just realized I forgot to photograph that . . . sorry!  Will definitely include that with the tutorial, coming soon!).

The card stock for the box is Pool Party, with a Very Vanilla layer on top of the box and on top of that Pool Party Core'dinations, which I embossed with the Hexagon Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I embossed some Tea Time Designer Series Paper, cut that out inside the embossed lines, and added that to decorate the box, along with some flowers punched out of the designer paper with the Itty Bitty Punch Trio.

The flower on top of the box is created out of Creped Filter Paper, which I die cut using one of the Flower Framelits, and sponged heavily with Calypso Coral ink.  I added a Designer Builder Brad in the center, which has a small flower punched out of Tea Time Designer Paper in the center.  The leaves are Lucky Limeade card stock, and created using the Blossom Petals Builder Punch.

The "Happy Easter" is from the Everybunny stamp set.  It is stamped in Soft Suede on a piece of Very Vanilla, shaped using the Word Window Punch.  I sponged around the edges of the punched piece with Pool Party ink.

The side of the box is wrapped with Natural 7/16" Trim Ribbon, which I dyed by spritzing it with a solution of a couple drops of Tempting Turquoise ink refill in Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.  I wrapped that with Victoria Crochet Trim.

Better run!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
