♥♥♥Easter Blessing♥♥♥ Candy Container

Hello everyone, Today I wanted to share a recycled Laughing Cow decorated container that I made for Easter. On my Treat container I used  
♥♥♥Really Reasonable Ribbon's Beautiful Satin's ♥♥♥


My friend Carol made several of these a couple of years back, and I absolutely fell in love with them, so thought I would give it a try. Thank you Carol(Chocolate,Crafts and bears, oh my)

I used the Diamond Satin Tulip, that is also in the March Ribbon Kit. I LOVE this beautiful ribbon and the color is soo pretty!!!! I also used some Pink 3/8"Satin with Iridescent Edge Pink for the Bunny Bow, and for around the outside edges of my container.



 ♥♥♥How to ♥♥♥
I took a Laughing Cow empty container and painted it using white Paint and some Creative Inspiration Paint in PINK to mixed in. Painted the outside of the entire container and set aside to dry. Next I took some Circle /Scalloped Circle Spellbinders and cut my sizes for the top and inside layering. 

I glued the pieces on, and then added my CottageCutz Easter Basket Bunny,CottageCutz Filigree Egg, Picket Fence Border. All are glued on except the Bunny and the cloud. I used Foam Squares to attach them. The cloud was a cutout from MLS, and I stamped a SU! sentiment on it. Super easy to make. All the Pearls are from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and they are glued on the egg!


♥♥♥It measures 4" around, and is 3/4" high on the inside♥♥♥
I think its perfect for holding jelly beans, mini choc eggs, mini chocolate bars the ones that are wrapped, you could maybe do 2 layers of those.



♥♥♥ I think these are a perfect gift idea for Easter ♥♥♥
 And SUPER Fun & Cute!!!

Challenges-

Cheryl this turned out so super cute. I adore your bunny image. Love the ribbon decorating the lid and bottom-I need to try that is looks so finished off that way. So sweet. You should see how many of these boxes I have....lol I even sent some to another friend like 10 of them. I can't throw them out. Let me know if you need any...lol Love what you did.
