Happy Spring! Shellye here today and I am so excited to be sharing one of my favorite “Treat Container” projects just in time for your Easter basket!
To get started I have a 6 x 6-in piece of yellow cardstock (any square size will work). Apply a strip of the Extreme Double-Sided Tape1/4-in along one of the edges. Match up the taped edge to the opposite side to resemble a toilet paper roll.
To achieve the sour cream container shape, close up the ends so that they were both going in the opposite direction.
Finally, I created the wings by using a cloud die to die-cut two shapes from the yellow cardstock. I would also suggest a heart or circle for creating the wings if you don’t have a similar shape on hand!
For the beak, I used one of the Creative Photo Corners Ivory and colored it with an orange alcohol marker. I added two of the Adhesive Dots Large for the cheeks and then topped with pink glitter. And one of my new favorites is the Adhesive Lines to attach ribbon bows! These are great because they cover a lot more surface area than the dots and follow the contour of whatever I’m sticking the bow too 🙂
This size container is perfect for jelly beans, robin eggs, m&m’s and other small candies or trinkets! I hope that you’ll give it a try!
