Easter Egg Gift Box

 Easter Mini Egg Gift box

Almost 3 years ago I shared a little tutorial on how to make these little gift boxes for Mini Easter eggs as a guest post over at the Pinning Mama. They are simple to make and just the right size for gifting a small chocolate egg - one of those that is the same size as a real chicken egg.

To make one all you need is:

  • a sheet of thin card
  • a little piece of tissue paper
  • some left over scraps of yarn
  • pencil, ruler, scissors, stapler and hole punch

Mark your card out following the diagram below. For those who need a translation:

  • 4cm = 1.5" 
  • 12cm = 4.5"
  • 20cm = 7.5"
  • But note if you measure in inches your box will be a fraction smaller as I've not translated it precisely

Cut out the corners and then cut and fold the lines as shown in the photo below.

Punch holes in the ends.

Fold the sides of the box up and then in and secure them with a staple.

Pop a little tissue paper into the box and add the egg on top.

Bring up the side and secure the top with a few mini pom poms.

I made my mini pom poms using the fork method. Find out how here at That's What Che Said. Just leave a long tail then use it to secure the box top by tying through the holes you punched.

You can use patterned thin card too and maybe make some tassels instead of pom poms.

Or maybe tie a bow with embroidery thread or ribbon.

These are so quick and easy to make, just perfect if you have  children in the family that you like to give just a little something at Easter. They are also easy enough for the kids to make for their friends too.
