Hello stampers and Earning Alaska Blog Hoppers! Let me tell you about one of my favorite new products, the Mini Egg Cartons. This is one of my must-haves from the new 2017 Occasions Catalog. I have so many ideas for cute projects using these!

Mini Egg Cartons

These Mini Egg Cartons are seriously the best treat-packaging ever! They come in a natural recycled color but they’re so easy to color! Here’s what the Mini Egg Cartons look like when you pull them out of the package:

To color the Mini Egg Carton, all you have to do is add 10-ish drops of ink to a Stampin’ Spritzer, fill the rest of the way with water or rubbing alcohol and spray! You can add more or less ink depending upon the tone you’re going for. Here’s a Mini Egg Carton being colored Calypso Coral:

Every one of the Stampin’ Up colors is available in a re-inker so you can make the Mini Egg Cartons whatever color you like!

This Mini Egg Carton has been colored with Daffodil Delight–much to my chagrin, I discovered that I don’t have a So Saffron reinker, which would have matched the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper perfectly. Not a problem though. If you need a paler color, simply add less ink to the Spritzer!

The top of the Mini Egg Carton was decorated with the Layering Squares Framelits Dies and coordinating Stitched Shapes Framelits, which I absolutely love! I also used one of the new Lace Doilies.

The tag was made with the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit. I stamped the greeting from the new Lift Me Up stamp set in Calypso Coral. The cupcake is also from the Lift Me Up stamp set. I stamped the frosting in Bermuda Bay and the cup cake liner in Soft Suede. Both were cut out with the new Up & Away Thinlits Dies, which coordinate beautifully with the Lift Me Up stamp set. The stamps and dies are available as a bundle with a 10% savings (links below). To finish the tag, I added Sprinkles Embellishments, which were adhered with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.

From this photo you can see that I used Burlap Ribbon along with the new 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon, which you can get for free during Sale-A-Bration with your $50+ order. This ribbon is so yummy! You’ll get two spools of ribbon. One is a white woven ribbon with silver accents and the other (pictured above) is a vanilla woven ribbon with gold accents. They’re both so very gorgeous!

Inside the Mini Egg Carton

You’ll have plenty of space to stuff some goodies into the Mini Egg Carton. I added some crumpled filler paper along with some Lindt truffles to my box but there’s definitely room to spare!
