A Pair of Easter Egg Boxes

I've already confessed my love for Cadbury eggs, but my husband loves them even more. He looks forward to them all year long, and I love surprising him with them.  I wanted a pretty little package to present them in, so I designed this egg box, and then I thought a mini version would be cute, too.  It holds the small eggs that you find in bags, and I used the Butterfinger ones here - my favorites!

I didn't tie them closed in my photos because I wanted you to be able to see them clearly, but you can use your imagination and pretty ribbons to really dress them up for a beautiful presentation. You will also need a piece of clear acetate for the window.  I save it from any and every kind of packaging that I buy so I'm recycling and it doesn't cost me a thing! 

Who wouldn't love to receive a pretty box of chocolate eggs - big or small?

Thanks Cindy! Those are tooo cute! Every week I make something for my 3 bowling partners. The other girls in the league like to come over and see the weekly goodie. :) Guess what my team will be receiving next week!? hee hee Thanks girl. So nice of you to let us use your work. Much appreciated. I hate to ask...lol Anyway you could shorten it to maybe 2 eggs. Just for a tiny little treat? If not, not a problem. Happy Sunday.

Cindy, these are wonderful! One of these days, I am going to have to learn how to get the files from my computer to my Gypsy!

Kala K said...

2 totally cute boxes. Thank you, thank you!!

Cindy McVey said...

Linea, I am at work this morning, so I can't check on it. ARe you using it with Gypsy or DS? You should take a close look at it and see if it is welded. It sounds like it's not. I'll check it when I get home tonight.
