Easter Cross Box

Hello everyone!  Happy Tuesday!

Today I wanted to show you a little box I made for an Easter gift.  This little cross box is the perfect size to hold some yummy Lindt Truffles or other yummy treats for Easter.  I have one very special person in mind for this. :)  This week's ODBD Shining the Light Challenge is to think  Easter!  Why not play along?

I covered the  chipboard cross with yummy shimmery designer paper from SEI (Chocolate).  It is a silvery paper with little gold sanded lines throughout.  It's so elegant!  I decorated it with the March release Our Daily Bread designs set  Easter Blessings (the Lily of the Valley) and The Lord has Risen (the sentiment).  I used the Spellbinders Fancy Tags which I sponged with Brilliance Platinum Planet Ink.  It really gives it a shine.  To make the Fancy Tag longer for the vertical panel I cut it and taped it to the back of the horizontal panel so it would better fill the cross. I then adhered them to the box with pop dots to give more dimension.  The Lily of the Valley is watercolored and then cut out, and sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Pearl for LOTS of shimmer! I added some white ribbon to the bottom of the flower.

For the lid, I added some self adhesive paper ribbon from K&Co.  This little box holds 6 Truffles.

This qualifies for several challenges:

Fussy and Fancy Friday - Easter
Paper Play - Easter
Stamp Simply - Easter
Stampin for the weekend - Easter

Lexi Creations - Easter
Craft Challenge - Easter

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Please be sure to stop back on April 1 for a new release and a lot of fun for all!!!  Check it out at the Our Daily Bread designs blog on the first!   For a sneak peek at what's coming just scroll down one post.  Just one of four GREAT new sets coming Thursday!!!
