{easter treat boxes}

Easter is just around the corner.. Time to do some last minute crafting! :)
So, with Easter coming soon, I decided to make a few Easter treat boxes.
I found these super cute pink bunny wrapped chocolate eggs filled with m&m’s and thought it would be fun to “hide” them in these sewn paper packages. Aren’t they cute?

Materials you’ll need:

  • paper (I cut mine to 5 12 in. x 4 in.)
  • double-sided tape
  • sewing machine and thread
  • funky scissors
  • candy

How to:

  1. Cut the paper to size, depending on how big you want the pouch to be.
  2. Place double-sided tape on one of the short sides and roll the paper into a tube, taping the sides together.
  3. Press one side of the roll together and sew shut with the sewing machine.
  4. Fill the little pouch with treats.
  5. Press the other side of the box together, 90°s to the opposite side.
  6. Sew shut with sewing machine.
  7. Cut the sides of the box with funky scissors of your choice.

    How cute! You come up with some of the cutest idea’s. If I find the time I might make a couple for my grandson who is 2 this year. If not, I for sure will plan ahead and make them for him next year. Thanks for the instructions.

    I’ve made these before for kids and always just used double sided tape. But I love the stitching…makes them look so elegant. Thanks for the great idea!

    Love your blog and am your newest follower.

    Thank you all so much for your awesome comments!

    @ Ellie: We made tea the other day and it came in these little pyramid-shaped teabags. It reminded me that I had seen little boxes like this before. They were taped on the corners, though. I though the sewing would make it look even cuter. :)

    @ Paula Jo: I would love to know if you ended up making them for your little grandson. :)
