Egg Container

Hello ladies, i hope you have had a great Easter celebration with your family and children.
I know in Europe, you are all still celebrating Easter Monday and have today off, my husband works here for a Italian company and he also is one of the lucky people who is still home.

I would like to show you a "quick" Mitbringsel (German :-) for a friend. I used up all scraps of the pretty Little Darlings "Summer Sorbet" papers. They matched perfectly the Milka Egg container i found at my local grocery store. For those of you who have not seen those containers - because i noticed it is almost impossible to get in the States paper egg containers for 4 or 6 eggs. The containers Milka has is filled with 4 chocolate eggs and i only saw them about 3 weeks before Easter, they were already sold out about 1 week ago. Luckily I did buy 2 containers - one the kids ate of course all the eggs but i keept the container and i plan on altering it maybe to give to a baby - filled with a pair of socks or hand knitted booties. I will come with something up i am sure.


 Supplies used: Milka chocolate egg container
Stamps: Tilda - Sweet Crazy Love
Sentiment: my friend Tammi gave it to me
Paper: Little Darlings
Other: ribbons; Stampin up yellow taffeta, recycled wide twill (Pottery Barn Kids), Raffia,
 Pearl stickers, Paper Doily, lace, double sided sticky tape, mounting pads, feathers, circular punches, Stickles,

Claudia - your image looks wonderful. It was great that you were able to find the container one store that we have here that I sometimes find unusual finds is World Market - I don't know if you have that store near you. Love how you added the feather.
