Easter Treats for a Jems Blog Hop

Hello there!
Today is a Jem's blog hop day! I'm joining in with some very talented ladies we'd all love if you followed the hop around, links are at the end of this post :-)
The theme of this hop is (the fast approaching) Easter! So much fun!
I do like to decorate small gifts or eggs at Easter so when I saw the Mini Egg Cartons in the S/S catalogue I was dead chuffed.
These egg boxes come plain, in a sort of off white colour, so I started by spritzing half with Peekaboo Peach and the other half in Mint Macaron. See me spritz them HERE on Instagram ;-)
I added about 12 drops of peach reinker in my stampin spritzer but only 6 of the mint, because of this I found the mint ones to be a bit pale so they needed a second coat, which I did this time using Pool Party.
 I stamped, watercoloured then die cut lots of images from the very lovely "Basket Bunch bundle" then made 8 different toppers using the pieces. I didn't particularly plan this stage - I just went with what I had in my little basket until I was happy ;-)
 I stamped all the coloured images on shimmer white card which is fairly stiff- so, great for layering, and added just some of the elements with dimensionals...
 Inside the lid I added a square of DSP (3"x 3" or 7.6cm square) from the Tasty Treats pack.
The sentiment inside is from the super versatile stamp set "My Hero" and I used the baby wipe technique for a multicoloured image.
 To finish these cartons I used the largest scalloped square die to cut some of the lovely Sale-a-Bration glimmer paper which I adhered onto the lid of the cartons before adding a ribbon bow around the centre and finally adding the topper with foam tape down the two sides.
Remember: All things Mint Macaron will be retiring at the end of May including this yummy mint ribbon. (Along with everything In Colour 2015-17) so stock up on your favourites now :-)
 I do hope the (not so little) kids like these Easter treats and that you do too!
Right, next stop on the hop is Karen who I'm sure will have a lovely project to share with you today, or you can go back to the very lovely Sharon who is the first in the hop! Thanks for looking today!
