Got (Cute) Egg Boxes?

Oh, have I got a basket full of cute egg boxes!  All  courtesy of darling cut files from Lettering Delights.


Aren't they fun?  And also a nice variety.  I made these just like I made my heart boxes. Remember how much I hate tabs?  My method works  wonderfully and is soooo much easier than trying to get all those tabs in place.  


There are quite a few die cut silhouette eggs available in the Cut Flower Egg set.  Bunnies, lambs, chicks, birds, deer... 

To make these, I sized the eggs to 3 1/2 by 4 7/8". 



The bottom of the egg box is also the same size as the two top pieces.  I cut the bottoms of the egg boxes the same color as the tops.



Now cut the inside eggs for the top of the box and the bottom of the box.  You want the eggs for the bottom to be just slightly smaller so the top will slide right over the bottom.



The 3 1/2" wide egg is about the max it can be and still be able to use a 12" strip to make the sides of the egg box.    In fact, the next ones I make I'll probably make them a little smaller and use a strip of 11" paper because my 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock is sturdier.  

I start by just gluing the strip to half the egg and letting it dry a little and then going ahead and wrapping it all the way around.  Whatever size egg box you make, be sure to have a long enough strip to have a little overlap.



For the chevron egg,  I used only the solid egg that comes with the set.




 And for the bow - guess what???  I used my Stampin' Up Envelope Punch Board to make this bow as quick as a flash!  



These darling bunny egg boxes are part of the Hunny Bunnies set.  I sized them at 2 1/2 inches wide and used a strip of paper 1" x 8 1/2" for the sides.  I used the solid egg  from the Cut Flower Eggs set for the bottom and inside eggs.

In the spirit of full disclosure:  I now get a small token from Lettering Delights if you click from the image below or in  my side bar to purchase from Lettering Delights.
