I love to reuse things if I can. I hate to throw away perfectly good boxes and bags if I think I can repurpose them later. When I was challenged by Epiphany Crafts to create a last-minute Easter gift, I thought instantly of an empty stationery box that I had:
The orange stripes were original, and since the box was in perfect shape, I didn't change a thing. If your box is a little worse for wear, you can recover it with pretty scrapbooking paper.
To dress it up, I simply added a fabric flower (like these from my Etsy shop - this particular fabric will be available very soon!). I made a flower center with my Epiphany Crafts round tool and a vintage setting. I love the pop of green!
Lastly, I added a tag (SRM Stickers labels by the dozen).
Filling the box with pink grass and yummy Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs was my favorite part. If you look closely, you'll see that the wrappers of the candy actually inspired my colors. All in all, I'd say the project took about ten minutes :). Easy-peasy.
