Easter Goodness

Happy Saturday!!
I had a pretty uneventful day day. Just the way I like it after a LONG week at work. When I was doing my morning blog hopping I found some surprising news. I was one of the TOP 3 at :
 The Sweet Stop.
Yeah!! That was a great way to start off my morning. Thank-you ladies.

Once I actually got my day started, I went grocery shopping and stopped by my LSS and picked up a few new goodies. They have a new gift wrapping section and I was inspired to create a pretty package for my niece for Easter. Here are the results.
I made this adorable 4 pack mini milk carton set. I know my niece will get a kick out of it. Each box is filled with different goodies. And she can use the little milk cartons after in her pretend grocery store.

I used a template that I found online at :
(great website)
It was super easy. I just printed out the template from my computer, directly on the patterned paper. I then cut and scored it and viola! Easy, peasy.
Here's a little picture of the money that I colored for the tag.
And here's a picture of the wrapped package, all ready to go!!

I am entering this for the following challenges :
I hope you like this project and I better run and create a few more packages for my other niece, my daughter and my nefew. Have a good day. Thanks for taking a look.



  1. Alexis, such an adorable project - just the sort of thing I like to do as well. Thanks for the link to the website for the template. Going to give this a try.
    Good luck in the challenge (even tho I'm entering too) lol.

  2. Hi Alexis, I checked out the website you gave the link for and what a great website it is. However I do have one question, I was unable to find the 4 pack mini milk carton set, the nearest I came was the 'Snowy Cocoa & Cakes 2 Go' set. Did you use that and adapt the carrier thingy to hold 4 cartons - or what?
    Would appreciate it if you would email me please at
    Thanks in advance, cheers
