DIY- Vintage Easter Egg Dye Garland or Treat Boxes

I don’t have a lot of Easter decorations (when you compare it to my Christmas and Halloween goodies) so I decided I wanted to make a garland this year using scans from old boxes of egg dye. You could turn these little boxes into a garland like me, or use them as treat boxes instead.
I printed mine on card stock, and then punched small holes on either side so I could thread them onto string. You could also use holes to thread a handle for boxes. Just make a knot on the inside of the box to hold it in place.
You can download the boxes for printing here:Easter Boxes

You can string yours up with some beads, or mini foam easter eggs would be adorable too!

Tiny Easter Candy Cones

I have been in love with the idea of giving a Schultüte (or German school cone) since I came across them online. Traditionally they are a big cardboard cone, prettily decorated and filled with toys, chocolate, candies, school supplies, and various other goodies. It is given to children to make this anxiously awaited first day of school a little bit sweeter. When I came across tiny cones I thought I would decorate some, add some candy, and use them in my white elephant easter basket for Crafternoon.
I found the mini cones here, as well as the scrap images. This website has so many fun scrap images!
All I did was create a little rosette with crepe paper streamers I had on hand, I used hot glue to hold the center in place, and then trimmed the edge so the rosette was smaller. I then used a pair of pinking shears on some metallic streamers I have and glued that in the center of the rosette to help cover the hot glue blob.
Then I picked a little scrap image, trimmed it, and glued that on too. Once the whole thing was glued onto a cone I filled each with some candy and tied the top with a ribbon. Super fast and I think they turned out really cute.

February Plush Of The Month Club

Plush of the month club boxes for February were all about LOVE, and my love for coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. Since coffee is my number one, that was the focus of this box. A happy coffee bean in a customized coffee bag. There was also a mini tea bag plush, and to keep with the Valentine theme it’s paper tag read “you’re my cup of tea”.
Each box contained three paper valentines (one coffee, tea, and hot chocolate) and an iconic NYC paper coffee cup filled with coffee colored paper crinkles and coffee candies.
I hope my unusual take on Valentine’s Day was unexpected, and a surprise for everyone who got a box.
