March 2016 Blog Hop, StampinMojo, Easter Lamb, All Boxed Up Kit

A couple of quick adorable treat holders to create as favors at your dinner table, a little something for co-workers, or the little peeps in your family.

These are made easy by using the All Boxed Up Kit. The kit contains 10 of these treat boxes and then goodies to accessory them with. I used the Pool Party pompom trim, baker’s twine and the cute clothespin that comes with the kit on the pink version.

I stamped the Easter Lamb stamp on (retired) Natural White card stock. I will use Whisper White Thick card stock or the rest as I think it will look brighter. Then using my Aqua Painter (filled with 91% Isopropyl Alcohol) and a bit of ink on the top of my ink pad (obtained by just squeezing the ink pad before opening it) I lightly colored the lamb with Smokey Slate ink. My Blushing Bride and Wild Wasabi Stampin’ Write Markers added a bit of color. Then I cut him out using a framelit from the Ovals Collection Framelits.

I masked the bottom of the lamb and stamped the sentiment on a scrap of Blushing Bride card stock. Using the banner from Large Numbers Framelits Dies I cut out the sentiment to adhere over the sentiment stamped with the lamb.

After I put this box together I created a handle by using the Word Window punch. Then I tied the Watermelon Wonder 1″ Stitched Satin Ribbon through the handle to keep it closed. This lamb was outlined with Smokey Slate watercoloring for a different look. This time I cut out my Easter Lamb with a circle from the Circle Collection Framelits and followed the same process as above  to create a coordinating banner in Watermelon Wonder card stock.

I still make Easter Baskets from our sons (22 and 20). The little bunny is something I purchased to go in their baskets. He is from the Velveteen Rabbit, a classic story that reminds us of the power love. I hope you enjoyed today’s project, which box do you like better?
