Easter Egg Box

I can't remember where I saw an egg box recently...on someone's blog or SCS. It kind of just got stuck in my head and I made up my own using my favorite Sale-a-bration product trio: Polka Dot Punches, Delicate Dots DSP, and Ribbon Bundle. (You can get these for FREE until March 31. Click here for details.)

I used the Coluzzle (which is being discontinued, but is STILL available to order; #102264, $19.95) to cut the oval shaped eggs from the Delicate Dots paper. I cut off the bottom so the box would stand up straight. The box measurements are actually the same as the Bunny Box I posted yesterday.

Springfield Stamp Club and those who attended my downline meeting that night made these boxes using a couple different patterns from the Delicate Dots DSP. I wish I had gotten a picture of everyone's eggs. There were all different. I loved it! Anyway, if you were there that night, I attempted to reduce the size of the box, so the measurements for the box you created are: 3-3/4" x 8-1/2" Whisper White cardstock. Score at 1", 3-3/4", 4-3/4", and 7-1/2", then turn it and score at 1". Cut on the score line up to the 1" score line and fold in for the base of the box.

Here's a side view so you can see how I did the ribbon. I folded it under and attached it to the box with a brad.

Supplies: Polka Dot Punches (embossed in white on Saffron cardstock and punched with 5-Petal Flower Punch), Versamark ink, So Saffron cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Delicate Dots DSP, Eyelet Border Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Pewter Build-a-Brad, Silver Brads, 1/16" Hole Punch, SAB Ribbon Bundle, 5-Petal Flower Punch, Winter White embossing powder

I love all the projects that night, but especially this box! I used a different pattern and will post photos of it on my blog soon. It was neat to see all the different eggs.
