Sweet Easter Treats Candy Box – by Heidi Blankenship

Heidi has a super fun, quick and easy Easter gift project to share today.  She enclosed delicious and delightfully colorful Jordan Almonds into a Clear Box for gifting.  Using some beautiful paper from Graphic 45’s Sweet Sentiments Collection, Heidi created a simple belly band for the box and added some spring/Easter themed images she cut from the same pad as additional embellishments.  After adding a bit of ribbon, a flower and some stick pins she was DONE!  And what a GORGEOUS Easter gift.  How fun it would be to make up a selection of these Easter Candy Boxes for gifting at Easter.  Take a look:


Doesn’t this make a gorgeous gift for Easter!

And once we’re talking Clear Boxes, here’s a few other ideas for using them:


Barb used a Clear Box to beautifully display a pair of baby socks and head band she altered with fun ribbon accents.

Here Barb encased her card in the Clear Box, and attached the box to the gift bag front. Very clever!

I made a set of six baby thank you cards for a gift and boxed each individually, then tied them together with ribbon. Kind of a pretty presentation.

Here I made a Mother’s Day Card (on the right), then I decorated the top of the Clear Box (on the left) to coordinate with the card.  The card was inserted inside for a pretty Mother’s Day presentation.

Here’s a single card encased in a Clear Box with a simple ribbon belly band.

Here we have a set of 6 flat for mailing cards in a Clear Box, and the belly band is simply torn postal wrap tied with Baker’s Twine.

I did put 6 envelopes in that box with the cards before gifting, but I apparently took the photo before putting the envelopes in.

You can see the original post here.  Can’t get any easier than this one!


For this project I made 50 table favors.  They were cards with Scripture for a ladies event at church.  Each was in a Clear Box for gifting at each place setting.

Also, I use the Clear Boxes to store my cards in the above fashion.  As they usually have bows and/or flowers creating dimension, this protects them perfectly.  I arrange them in plastic bins by theme – baby, wedding, birthday, etc.  When I need a card, I can quickly flip through my bin with no damage to the cards, pull out what I need, and it’s ready for gifting in it’s very own Clear Box.
