    Easter Egg Shadowbox Kit!

    Filed under Art Projects, Collage Sheets, Easter Egg Shadowbox Kit, Giveaways, Newsletters, Sale, Teri Calia

    Almost Spring! Well… it was feeling like Spring a couple weeks ago. All the trees started to bud and now we’re having a hail storm so I don’t think there’ll be many flowers on those trees this year.

    But… Spring! And bulbs, chicks, rabbits, baby ducks… sounds like time for a new kit!

    See that photo below of me holding one of FOUR new covers for the Mini Shadowboxes? That one I’m holding (the smallest one) is in the Easter Egg Shadowbox Kit!

    That’s a little box (just 2″ x 3″) but perfect for a tiny shrine to a fuzzy Spring chick. (Note: there are some new fuzzy chicks below, but not included in the kit.)

    The kit does includes some new 12mm eggs (cute), and tons of 6×6 papers in patterns (and florals and egg designs) — “tons” in this instance means 15. 12 of the sheets are from the new Cottontail 6×6 Paper Pad, so you’ll get all of the designs from that pad.

    And new collage sheets! Teri Calia designed one called Happy Easter (with lots of options, from bunnies holding a banner (in 2 sizes) to baskets of violets for decorating your tiny shadowbox). And there are many photos below of ALL FOUR of the new shadowbox lids decorated by Teri (note: the same Easter-themed windows are cut from lids (box tops with sides… scalloped edges on the sides, too!) and covers (heavy, flat chipboard without sides).

    Back to collage sheets: I designed one called Easter Banners, with banners to fit all four sizes of Mini Shadowboxes. Some banners have Easter greetings, some are left blank for your own text. It also includes tiny postcards that can be used as flags (or pennants) for making a hanging banner.

    More info about the new kit is on the Easter Egg Shadowbox Kit page. And remember to scroll down to the Giveaway on this page for a chance to win a kit plus lots of extras! Plus between here and there, a big bunch of pretty coordinating trims!

    Artwork! Wow! Teri must love Spring… she made FIVE shadowboxes! (Scroll down just a bit to see a wide photo of Teri’s Easter Celebration Boxes… she made 2 of the Small Bunny design, so she made 5 boxes).

    One of the Small Bunny lids is also shown at left (and fits perfectly with those shutters)! That little chick pulling a ribbon, and the 2 bunnies on top are from the Happy Easter Collage Sheet. And the brown bunny, eggs, and basket are new today.

    I love the sweet, little pennant banner. It looks appropriately casual, with the ends of the baker’s twine left hanging. The little flags are cut from a mix of the papers in the kit, and the new Jubilee 6×6 Paper Pad.

    More info and photos in Teri’s blog post, and here’s a link to see all her supplies.

      I would make the four boxes very similar to what is shown. I love those peek-a-boo Easter eggs I used to get every year, where I could look inside them through a hole in the front and see another little world.
      Thanks!

      These would be so fun to decorate! I love the chocolate bunny one! I’d make mini Easter goodie boxes with two of them and fill them with little candies for my daughter and her boyfriend.

      Oh, my gosh! I love this kit! We just moved into a new apartment that could really use some spring/Easter decorations. I love Teri’s designs, and would probably take a lot of inspiration from her creations, probably adding some more bunnies and chicks to the boxes. (Can one ever have too many bunnies or chicks?) These would be perfect hanging–or on tiny shelves–between the living and dining areas in our apartment. <3

I have some pastel fuzzy chicks somewhere that would look so cute in a few and I ordered the carrot card stock and the little white bunny that would go nicely as well.
