Welcome to another Papertrey Ink group post! We are featuring a brand new stamp set called Sweet Spring, which will be available on the 15th. I made a little treat pocket and coordinating card, then I thought of some little boxes as place holders that would be fun for an Easter dinner table...or even as little party favors.

First, I made the treat pocket with the Front and Center die. I cut one from Lavender Moon cardstock and folded the bottom up, then machine stitched the sides. The little flowers, frame and sentiment are stamped with the new Sweet Spring stamps! I used Raspberry Fizz patterned paper to make the tiny flowers, just stamped over the polkadots on the paper and cut them out. The eggs are stamped with the NEW Scrambled Eggs stamp set and die cut with the Egg die.

Next is a card stamped with the flowers again, but I used a dark purple cardstock and Raspberry Fizz and Aqua Mist patterned papers for the flowers. The background is stamped with the buttterfly and swirls from the Sweet Spring set.



Last, I thought of some little boxes to fill with candies for treat favors or place holders at Easter dinner. For each box, I cut 2 strips of patterned paper 6" x 1/2". I placed them together in the center, glued the bottoms and folded up the sides, making sure the bottoms were 1 1/2" square.

You can make these boxes any size you want, just make sure you cut them the same width that you want the bottom of the box to be. So if you want 4x4" bottoms to your boxes, you'll cut your strips 4" wide.

I trimmed the tops with scalloped scissors on all four sides...
To keep these treat boxes really simple, I just taped the sides together on the inside corners of the boxes with Scotch tape, then covered the tape on the inside with some shredded cardstock. I tied ribbon around them to hold them together tighter. Add jellybeans or any fun candies.
