PTI Secret Sister reveal box

Hello all! It has been a while! For the last month and a half I have been participating in a PTI secret sister swap on Splitcoast. I haven't been able to post any cards because I didn't want my secret sis to catch on to who I was! So here is the final reveal package...by the time she sees this it won't matter because she will soon find out it is me!


I knew right away that I wanted to use one of PTI's egg boxes. These boxes are so sturdy!


Let me tell you a little about this package :0)

I covered the outside of the box with some cool tissue paper that my DD had gotten in a present back in February. I knew the colors would be great and the flowers are similar to some of PTI's images. I lined the inside with old olive textured CS and lined the egg holes with some PTI bitty dot paper in Razzberry Fizz (thanks to my friend Carol at splitcoast!)


I knew I was going to load up some plastic Easter eggs with some goodies. I put some flowers, buttons, brads & ribbon inside and tied them with some coordinating ribbon.




My original intent was to do six eggs, but then I saw the cutest pots at target! My secret sis is allergic to smelly stuff, so I got her veggie plants instead!
I put some die cut flowers on top of the labels to make them look like cute little plants and added them to my box.


PTI's "Bloom where you're planted" seemed to fit the whole floral feel of the box. I also wanted a button "bouquet" as part of the focal point. I put primas behind the buttons so they would have more of a flower feel to them.


I am also adding some of my secret sis's favorite treats to the package. They will fit right on top of everything in the box.



Thanks so much for stopping by! I really had fun with this project!


Hugs,
