Easter and Mother's Day Goodies

Hi Crafters,

Just a quick hello from me today to share a couple of projects I have been working on.

Easter Egg Boxes


Mother's Day Treats

As you can see they are quite deep so I could fit lots of yummy sweets inside.

These were fun and simple to do and make great little gifts for the occasion.

The Easter boxes filled with chocolate eggs were from a tutorial I saw on Pinterest and the Mother's Day ones filled with toffees and mints were inspired by a tutorial on Sam Pootle's blog.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Crafty Creations - #309 Something To Eat/Drink
Not Just Cards - #29 ATG
Craft-Dee Bowz - Feb. ATG + Bow
OSAAT - 3D Bags and Boxes

Well I can't hang around here for too long, the family will be getting hungry and I haven't decided what we're having yet!

Bye for now,
