Easter Little box of Flowers, CTC #24 Celebrating Easter,

Well I love Easter and I love flowers, and I love little boxes. So when I saw a cute little box of hearts on Pinterest I knew I had to try something similar. The challenge at CASEing the Catty is to create an Easter project, and the theme at The Challenge is Anything Goes for their one year anniversary, so I am entering these in both of those.




they fit right into a regular C6 envelope and don't require any additional postage ! bonus!
Since my family all live far away I made a dozen of these to send to them all. I stamped the Love is Kindness image with soft suede and coloured the tulips using either blendabilities or ink and my blender pen. They looked too stark with only the white background so I used my aqua painter to give a watercolour wash background before I cut them out.
The Mini Treat boxes are a perfect size to fit into an envelope, and I constructed a little bridge from Kraft cardstock to adhere the flowers to. Then they only needed a little bit of extra stamping on the box to add some texture,and a little happy Easter Banner from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments, and a little touch of string or ribbon.
I hope you too have a very happy Easter.
Thanks for looking, Liz
