Today I've had my first play with Jamie Rodgers NEW Wings of Wonder Collection... and wow!
It’s all AMAZING!!!!
I just had to share this idea with you, which popped into my head as soon as I saw the
Butterfly Trellis Panel Die Set.
Let me show you how to create this beautiful Easter Egg Gift Box - perfect for your Easter gifts.
(I may have sampled a few eggs to get the correct size lol :-)
You can find the Shopping List for my project at the bottom of this page.
MAKING YOUR BOX.....
Firstly, take Craftmania's Gold Smouldering Silk Card and set about cutting out FOUR Butterfly Trellis Panels, plus FOUR of the butterflies and swirls in the gold and red.
Then using your Red Smouldering Silk Card, take a pencil and draw around the panel (as you can see in the picture below) and fussy cut them out.
Once all FOUR panels are done, stick the red card behind the gold panels, before sticking the four them together, to make a box shape.
To create the base, I took my red card again and cut 3x3 inches, and then scored at 1/4 “ all round, burnishing the score lines. Next, stick your plant pots corners down, before then sticking the base into the panel square (red facing up).
Now here's the fun.... finding a chocolate egg to fit lol.
I chose one wrapped in gold foil to match my colour theme, and placed it inside my box.
Cut off the tabs at the top, sticking the top rings together so they match each side.
With your swirls and butterflies cut from this die set in the same card stock as above glue them onto the box and the egg as seen below. To dress it up, I also tied a red ribbon around the top.
See how this die set makes this super easy this is to make!!
This lovely little gift box could be used for so many projects and occasions, from Birthdays, Weddings or even Baby Showers. I could also see those big bath bombs in a gorgeous pink and cream box and wrapped in cellophane... lots of ideas!!!!
We hope you are all enjoying this gorgeous new Collection... so whether you have got yours or thinking about adding to your stash, we would love to hear from you on our
