Easter Sweetie Box

Easter Candy Sweet Box
All the dominoes I use for my wooden tags come in lovely slide lid boxes also made from wood, so it’s a challenge to use them up too.
Wooden Dominoe Box
This box measures 6.5in x 3.5in x 1.5in and I’ve just covered it with gingham and green paper, adding a bit of faux stitching and several coats of Ronseal clear gloss, quick drying varnish and a knob, if you’ll pardon the expression!

When completely dry I’ve then added a few wooden ladybird embellishments that I have had for more years than I care to remember.  I am hoping that Tesco will be having their nets of chocolate ladybirds in again this year as that is what I would like to fill the box with to then give as an Easter present.

Check out my followers gallery as I have just added a project sent to me this morning that was done by Linda using the Tesco chocolate ladybirds I am praying they have again this year.

Aww thats so sweet (pun intended, lol) and a great way to put the box to good use. You have reminded me that I have a family of ladybirds like those somewhere, must find them. Take care

Box is fab Helen, reminds me of one particular summer (in the 70's I think) when there were hundreds of ladybirds and we collected them in matchboxes. Great card by Linda too. xx
