Easter Pillow Boxes

One of my family's Easter traditions is to set out small treats (preferably chocolate!) at each family member's place setting at the main meal. My parents will be joining us for Easter dinner this year so I thought I would continue the tradition but also create some cute packaging for my sweet offerings. 

I used the Essential Pillow Box die by Papertrey Ink to create my packaging. These were so easy to make! If you are like me and have waited until the last minute to make Easter favors, these work up in no time.

I made the happy discovery that this pillow box die will just barely fit on a 6x6 piece of pattern paper. So I looked through my stash of 6x6 pattern paper stacks and picked an assortment of fun spring colors and patterns.

Here are my assembled boxes, now they just need decorating!

I tied each box with ribbon and tucked a banner die stamped with the sentiment underneath. You could also write the recipient's name on the tag and use these as place cards.

I think they turned out pretty cute!

I filled each pillow box with a few Cadbury caramel eggs. Yum!

Wishing you a happy Easter! He is risen!
