Okay, I know that Easter is past, and one might say that the time has come and gone for a treat container containing chocolate eggs. But I say, when Down on the Farm is the collection on the crafty table, it is the perfect excuse to bring on all fun things farm themed – including delicious chocolate eggs (like I need an excuse)!
And let’s be honest, it doesn’t get much more “down home” than little milk carton treat containers, so that is exactly where I went with this little project for the absolutely adorable and heart-warming Down on the Farm collection!
I decided to use some amazing primary coloured textured cardstock for the base of each container, and then used some of the great smaller prints in the 12×12 patterned paper collection for the accents on each side.
And then as the focal point for each container, I used an fantastic Doodle-pop to, well…POP!
I love the dimension that these Doodle-pops have and they are the perfect size for the little 2×2″ space I had on the front.
To add a little sentiment to each, I grabbed the funny Chit Chat die cuts and found one to match each of the Doodle-pops that I was planning to use. Oh, and did I mention that I had choice galore – there are so many great sentiments in the Chit Chat collections that I could make enough of these treat containers to last all year!
Each container was then topped off with some of my favourite stand-bys – mini doilies, Sprinkles and a mini paperclip, all of which happen to be the perfect size for these little containers. Oh, and if chocolate eggs are not your thing (besides the fact that we might not be able to be friends any more) you can fill these little containers with just about anything from candies to mini cookies to individual cupcakes. It’s a farm-friendly project sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face!
