how was your weekend??
I set out to make some altered boxes for Easter treats
to enter into the
Magnolia-Licious Easter-Spring Eggstravaganza Contest
and sadly, it has taken me about 3 weeks
to finally get these boxes together!!
You know what though, I am just grateful to have gotten
ANYTHING extra done with life being as hectic as it is lately.
So, they started out as little one dollar picture boxes from Michaels. I painted them with Distress Crackle Paint in Picket Fence, and measured and Modge Podged in some Crafty Secrets plaid paper. I removed the picture panels so that the glass is now a Peep-hole, but will send these with the picture panel so that the recipient may place a photo in there after the candy is gone.
Here are the tops, decorated with some Magnolia images and various floral bits and bobs.
And here are the sides, I used Tacky Glue to adhere various ribbons to my boxes.
And here are the insides, after the modge podge treatment. This picture was taken a few days ago. I wanted to make sure the podge had plenty of time to dry before sticking candy for my loved ones in there!!
This one has little Hoppy from last years Hoppy Easter release, along with a blue bird, and what's in there, I hear you asking? Cadbury Mini Eggs!!
And here we have the little accesory Blue Birds that I am SOOOOOO thrilled to have, and inside? Robin Eggs, of course!!
Sooooooo, I will go ahead and pop this in over at Magnolia Down Unda as they are having an Easter Challenge, and I, I uhhh, guess that's it? Yeah, that's it!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
