Easter Bunny Matchbox Favour

Every time I pop into The Works in Evesham I have a good ruttle through the reduced box hoping to find a few more packs of reduced matchboxes as I have a feeling they might not be doing them again, though I have them on “Notify” if/when they are back in stock on their website. However I have found similar boxes from Baker Ross should they dry up completely.

The felt bunny stickers came from lemonmoonltd on E-bay, but could be old stock (from Baker Ross) as I bought them just before Christmas. The spotted paper tape comes from The Works.

The tape is so easy to use and brilliant for decorating the sides and ends of the matchboxes, bought recently, I think they are going to be a staple for all sorts of projects.

I used scraps of Forever Friends paper on the front, back and inside of the matchbox……..

At the moment this one remains empty until I find something to put in it, something small like chocolate eggs, bunnies and chicks and then I will go into proper production mode.

Love these. They are a great idea for little gifts. I never think of looking in The Works so will make an effort to do so now. Karen x

Perfect for a little Easter treat! I love how you line the inside with the DSP - makes it eggs-tra special. he he

Great idea! You can get micro mini eggs from M&S I'm sure you can also buy a 250g bag from treasure island sweets (online shop) for £3 but I don't kno how that compares to M&S??

Big hugs
