Easter Greetings....

Good Sunday morning and Happy Easter to you and your family!

We had a wonderful family time (and eats!) at my mom's last night and saw family that we hadn't seen for years -a wonderful surprise for sure!

I thought I would finally use the Nestie Eggs set from Waltzingmouse Stamps with my Spellbinders Nested Eggs dies to decorate a small box that I made.

I used my Sizzix Bigz XL Die #3 for the box - terribly easy to put together and then I punched the edge of the flap with the Martha Stewart eyelet edge punch for a sweet finish.

I stamped the egg three different times in three different inks and cut out each one with my Spellbinders Nested Eggs die. I cut two of the eggs apart and then pieced them together on the remaining egg to make the different colours.

I stamped the sentiment in the middle and then attached it to the beautiful silk ribbon (from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply store).

I attached a small doily under the ribbon to make it pretty and then attached an Aqua Mist button with a Jenni Bowlin pearl embellishment on top.

We are off to Ron's family Easter today - I have made scalloped potatoes plus a hash brown casserole plus couscous salad plus a rice salad for the vegan's in the family - it's so hard to keep up nowadays LOL!!


  1. Adorable box!
    Every holiday I make some form of place cards for my family. This year I'll be using the fab eggs from Claire's set! I love how you've paper pieced, and may use that idea for the back of the eggs - the side others will see.
    I have time as, luckily, our dinner will be tomorrow :)
    Happy Easter!

  2. What a sweet box! I love lov elove it! That little edge is just amazing...I need more border punches!

  3. Beautiful Bonnie; love the extra touch of the pearls, and the punched sides of the lid. And of course, my colors...
