We had a lovely surprise the other week when we were sent a fabulous selection of paper supplies from The Paperbox Limited.
It’s been a busy time here at Creative Crafting so we still have to make some Easter cards with the lovely card blanks and envelopes but I have spent a fun few hours creating a few bits.
Paper Bunny Box
First, I used some of the thick paper (I chose pink) to make a great little box which will be perfect for filling with tiny eggs. This was super simple and would be easy enough for a young child to do with you.
I used a free downloadable printable which gave me everything that I needed. You can find the download at www.donteatthepaste.com/2009/04/printable-bunny-box.html
I also made some lovely paper daffodils with the pale yellow and mint green card. These were a bit more tricky and more of a challenge if that it something that inspires you.

Handmade Gift Box
My eldest son really isn’t into chocolate (he doesn’t get this from me!), in fact he still has some of last years Easter Egg left (much to the disgust of my youngest son). So this year I decided to go in a different direction with his gift. He has recently become addicted to the card game ‘Magic the Gathering’ so I purchased some new cards for him. I then used some of the silver non shed glitter card and aquamarine pearl card to create this lovely box. This was fun, it was my favourite to make by far.
There is a great video tutorial for this one. You can find it here www.paperdaisycrafting.co.uk/2019/01/lovely-flowers-edgelits-box-video.html
This tutorial is for a box with a paper daisy cut on the top but I just missed that bit out.
I still have a lovely selection of envelopes, cards and papers to use for Easter cards and I’m looking forward to making these with my boys over the next week or two.
The Paperbox Limited have a fabulous selection of paper supplies and accessories. They have a comprehensive selection of items that would be perfect for making wedding invitations etc.
