Glittery Easter Treats

Happy Friday everyone! Welcome to the final day of our Easter and German Glitter Glass week. I hope you have enjoyed everyone's sparkly projects and now you are ready to go out and add some bling of your own!

My project for the week is some Easter favor boxes filled with candy (chocolate, of course!) and decorated with Graphic 45's Once Upon a Springtime papers and some vintage Easter images.

These were so fun for me to make. I got these cute boxes at a local wedding supply store and simply folded them up and filled them with candy. Then I cut an egg shape from some of the Graphic 45 papers-- it was hard to decide which ones to use they are all so gorgeous! My Easter images are free for use in craft projects, you can find them here-- I just downloaded them, sized them to what I wanted and printed them out.

I added Pale Green Flowersoft to each image for the grass and then also used the Flowersoft glue to apply my Pink and Yellow Green German Glitter Glass. This stuff is seriously so cool, I have never seen anything like it before! I am not a big fan of good old-fashioned plastic glitter, its just so darn messy and never quite looks the way I want it to. However, this stuff is so pretty, it is in a completely different world than that old plastic glitter. It was very easy to use and I love the way it shines.

I edged my images by putting a thin line of glue all the way around and then dipping it in a shallow dish of the glitter. I also added some of the details in the paper such as flowers and a butterfly.

Other details include pearls, mulberry roses spritzed with Pearl Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, lace and a bow on top.

Jamie, these are so stinkin' cute! I love the detail that you got using the Flower Soft. It is just perfect for Easter grass.

Really adorable. I love the glitter and the adorable images look so good the way you added all the little embellishments on the egg shaped card.

Jamie, these are way to cute for words. I love these and would love to make some myself if I had the time. You are so inspiring!
