Embellished Filigree Easter Egg Tutorial

Wanted to share this Easter Egg Box I embellished - picked up it up at JoAnn Fabric & Craft Store - so pretty with the filigree top!

Recently I received a box of paints from Testors® Corp from a bloggers' event I attended at CHA (Craft & Hobby Assoc.) trade show in January. They had a beautiful selection of paints. I paired one of them with Authentique Paper, one of my favorite paper manufacturers, newest Cuddle Boy Collection and it was a perfect match! What do you think?

I painted the filigree box top with Testors® Craft Paint in Island Breeze, about two coats (dry time between coats). Set aside to dry.

While the top dried, I traced the detachable back of the box top with Cuddle Boy Five patterned paper and pencil. Trim with scissors and adhere using Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Girlie Grunge Art Medium. Set aside to dry.

Paint two coats on the top and bottom edges of the box. Dry time for each coat. Set aside. With two 1.75 x 12" strip of Cuddle Boy Five patterned paper, paint the edges so it blends into the painted areas of the box.

Adhere the strips of patterned paper on the side of box with Girlie Grunge Art Medium. Let dry and trim off the excess paper. Repeat the same process for the box top sides with two 1 x 12" strip of Cuddle Boy Three patterned paper.

Die-cut Spellbinders® Reflections Die with green striped patterned paper. Place Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® 3D Easter Shapes Bunny in the center of die cut. Remove liner and sprinkle Stampdenous Micro Glitter. Press firmly and shake off excess glitter.

Use Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Dodz™ Small (clear double-sided adhesive dot) to secure the embellished die cut on to the box top.

Fill with "grass" (I cut some leftover green patterned paper with a fringed scissors) and candy.
