Easter Treat Boxes

First, don't forget about my Give-away from the Fantabulous Cricut Crawl last Monday (click here).

Here are the treat boxes...

and a little closer...

Now I wish I could take credit for these ideas but I actually saw a version of them on two different blogs...the Chicks are from The Bug Bytes and the Carrots are from Small Bits of Paper. I made the Bunnies myself. I would like to thank you Ladies for your inspiration.

I actually made 6 Chicks, 6 Bunnies and 15 Carrots (5 each in 3 different papers). I plan on filling them with Chocolate Kisses in the Chicks and Bunnies and Jellybeans or M&M's in the Carrots. (I just have to  get to the store and buy the candy).

Finished Chick and Bunny Boxes: 2 1/4" x 3 3/4" x 3/4"

Cardstock: Patterned Paper, Cream, 2 Shades of Brown, Light Green, Purple, Yellow/Orange and Yellow.

Cricut Cartridge Simply Charmed Bunny page 34, (Base), Chick Egg page 35, (Shift Base, Layer 2 Shift, Layer 3 Shift and Layer 4 Shift)
Cricut Design Studio
Googly Eyes
Pink Pom Poms (for Bunny Noses)
Embroidery Floss (For Bunny Whiskers)
Green, Pink, 2 Shades of Purple, Blue and Maroon Ribbon
Pink Chalk (for Cheeks, Ears and Feet)
Black Le Plume II Pen (Thin) (for Bunny Mouths)

I used 4 Screens in Design Studio: (12" x 12" mat)
First Screen...To lay out 4 Boxes. Cut them out 3 times with 3 different Patterned Papers.
Second Screen...6 Bunnies (3 1/2") (3 on one 6"x 6"side and 3 on another. Use "Hide Selected Contour" for all the inside lines in the Bunnies. Cut them out in Cream, Light Brown and Dark Brown. (I cut them out in Green, which I didn't use.) I also have one extra Bunny in the other colors for another project).
Third Screen... 6 Shift Base Chicks (3 1/4") and 6 Layer 2 Shift (bottom layer of egg). (3 Chick Eggs on each of the top 6" x 6" squares and 3 bottom layer eggs each on the bottom 6" x 6" squares of the mat. Cut Chick Eggs in Yellow and the bottom layer eggs in Green and Purple)
Fourth Screen... 6 Layer 4 Shift (top layer of egg) and  6 Layer 3 Shift (Beaks) on another screen (2 eggs each on 3 of the 6"x 6" squares and the beaks on the last 6" x 6" square of the mat.

Finished Carrot Boxes: 1 3/4" x 2 1/2" x 1 1/8"

Cardstock: 3 Different Patterned Papers and Clear Craft Plastic

I used Design Studio to lay out 5 boxes on the screen (four in the corners and one in the middle). They were 4 1/2" each.  I cut the Clear Craft Plastic to fit the on the inside of the boxes behind the windows.

 I'm planning on giving them to my family on Easter when they come for dinner. I'm so excited....I can't wait! (I hope they like them as much as I do.)

I hope I inspired you to make these boxes as much as I was inspired when I saw them. Thanks again Ladies.

....imagine what you could do.....


  1. Wow, Dana, you've been busy!! What FABULOUS treat boxes!! I'm so glad that the carrot boxes inspired you! And I LOVE your little pillow boxes. I like yours better than mine! They are so much fun with those sweet critters!! Great job!!

  2. Oh, Dana, these are just so adorable. I've been having brain freeze when it comes to Easter projects but I think you've given me the nudge I needed. So glad your shared, especially the details. I'm off to scraplift.

  3. These are wonderful! Your guests will love them!! The bunny's face is the cutest...the whiskers and nose are too cute! TFS!
