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.

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.
