Sweet Easter Chick Treat Box

 
So excited about my post today! Today is my Design Team day for

I just can't help it; I am still giddy about being on this team. I have been a huge fan of this company for years and now I get to work with them! So awesome!!!
 
My project today incorporates two files. I made the Pour Box and decorated it with a sweet chick from the Easter Chicks collection.

This is a super sweet box all decorated up for Easter. I enlarged the box to the largest size I could fit on my cutting mat. I then pieced the image of the chick together on my virtual cutting mat and sized it according to how big I wanted it on the side of the box. The box probably measures about 4 inches high this way. The box cuts in one piece. Just score and fold (adding a bit of glue of course. LOL!)!

Kristi and Val designed the spout on the side to be hinged allowing it to open and close. This box could be filled up with so many different kinds of good treats. It would make a great teacher gift, bus driver gift, for a co-worker, or maybe the perfect box of treats for your hubby! So many possibilities and easy to put together.
 
Other ingredients include:
DP: Doodlebug Design's Hello Spring collection
Cardstock: Bazzill (except for the pink egg which is a misc. piece from my stash)
Twine: The Twinery
Tag and Sentiment: My Craft Spot Tiny Tags

I, of course, inked the edges of my project (I use a lot of Memento inks, but I also used some misc. inks for this project.) I finished the tag off with a tiny jewel from my stash (HL) and used my white gel pen to add some doodling to give the image a bit more dimension.
 
I hope you will give this project a try. If you do, I would enjoy seeing your projects. You can share them with me on my FB page at M Miranda Creations.
 
And of course we want to see all your My Scrap Chick projects on the My Scrap Chick FB fan page.
 
Hope you have enjoyed my Easter Treat Box and hope you will come back by again real soon!
 
Blessings,
