♥ Crafty Secrets Easter Box ♥

Hi there everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Friday was our son Antonio's 7th Birthday. How quickly they grow up! He is such a sweet, kind, loving and fun little boy! He always puts other people before himself! How many 7 year old boys do that?! He is an angel from above that has blessed us all in so many ways! Both of our children are gifts from God and we thank him everyday for them. Happy 7th Birthday Antonio!


Easter will be here in a few short weeks. I love making little boxes on holidays to give little gifts inside of. It's like a gift within a gift! I altered a paper mache' box with some beautiful papers by Crafty Secrets from the Radiant Paper Collection.


I then added a small Melissa Frances birds nest to the top and then added some Victorian Floral Easter Eggs and Pretty Vintage Easter Eggs to the inside of the nest.


I then finished it off with some die cut branches, punched branches, flowers, seam binding, pom pom trim and a tag made from the Happy Easter Stamp Set.


Stop by the Heartwarming Vintage Blog for some more inspiring creations from the fabulous Crafty Secrets DT!

I will have my giveaway winner posted in a day or two! Good luck everyone!

Have a sweet day!

hugs...
