Sweet Little Someone Easter Treats
Hello! Today I wanted to share with you this Easter Treats project I put together on Sunday to give to my children on Easter. I know that they are both 20-somethings, but I just love making them special projects for holidays. And if the truth were known I think they love getting candy, all prettied up, from me. I used the Sweet Little Something stamp set to decorate these Easter Treats (Reese’s Pieces Eggs in a cute mini milk carton). It’s one of our photopolymer stamps. I received this stamp set last November at the Stampin’ Up! convention as my prize patrol gift. There is a three-step process to create the bunny and when you are done you just want to reach out and feel how soft it is, because the image is so realistic looking.
The Color Palette
You may be wondering why I used 4 shades of pink and only 3 shades of blue. Well, sometimes I don’t have the finished project in mind when I start. I had a general idea of what I wanted. So I chose Pink Pirouette, Sweet Sugar Plum and Fresh Fig for the girl bunny because those colors go together well. Then I chose the Bundle of Love DSP to wrap the carton. This DSP had Blushing Bride and not Pink Pirouette as the main color. I feel that Blushing Bride goes well with the other pinks, so I chose to use Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum and Fresh Fig to die cut the flowers. This approach makes you stretch your creativity. I hope you enjoy making these Easter Treats.
Leave me comment with a picture of your Easter Treats projects. I would love to see what you create.

Cut your pieces.
- Using Wild Wasabi card stock cut a 3 ¾” x 2 ¼” piece and score at 1 7/8 ”.
- Cut the DSP: 3” x 6” and 3” x 3”.
- Die cut the flowers: 1 of each type of flower (3) in each color for a total of 9 flowers.
- The banner is die cut using Wild Wasabi.
Stamp your images.
- Stamp the bunny: Start with the darkest color, then the medium shade and finally the lightest shade. Using the most detailed stamp first, then the next most detailed and then the one that is a solid image.
- Stamp ‘Happy Easter” on the banner: In Island Indigo for the blue bunny and Fresh Fig for the pink bunny. Click here and here to see other projects that used the banner from ‘Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies’.
Putting it all together.
- DSP: Center the 3” x 3” DSP on the back of the carton and fold edges around the sides. There should be about a ¼” overlap on each side. Use Tear and Tape to adhere to the carton. Then take the 6” x 3” DSP and center on the front of the carton and fold around the edges. It should cover the overlap from the back piece of DSP. Use Tear and Tape to adhere to the carton.
- Bunny: Use dimensional’s to adhere the bunny to the front of the carton. I used 3 dimensionals on the back of the bunny and then put a dimensional on each of those to have the bunny more raised on the carton.
- Flowers: Use Liquid Multipurpose Glue to glue flowers onto the banner. You can use my sample as a guide or arrange them any way you like.
- Banner: To adhere the banner to the front top of the carton I used dimensionals. I stacked 3 dimensionals at each end.
