Instructions:

Step 1: Use a manual die cut machine to cut three bags from patterned paper.

Step 2: Assemble the boxes by using the folds in the die cut shape.

Step 3: Wrap white crochet twine around the center of the box three to four times and tie into a bow on the left side of the box shape.

Step 4: Pleat white crepe paper strips into circles and staple in the center of a white doily.

Step 6: Attach a teal balloon to the center of each crepe paper doily with a glue dot. This will allow the party guest to remove and use the balloon later.

Step 7: Decorate each box with party or birthday image stickers. Then dress up each sticker with additional embellishments including enamel dots in bright colors and twine.

Easter Card

Have you started shopping for your kids' Easter baskets? I typically stock up on Robin Eggs as early as possible because a few bags always seem to disappear before the holiday actually arrives. For something a little more special this year, why not add an Easter card to each of your kids' baskets? You can use the "Celebrate Easter" collection from Echo Park Paper to create this sweet card:

Here's a close up look at the card:

You can see I added some yellow leaf die cuts, as well as, some lace to add a little pizzazz to the card. I always love adding the details when I'm crafting. Don't you?
