Easter Printable – egg-shaped box template

EasterEggBox_1

Today’s Easter printable is a pretty floral egg-shaped box. It is just the right size to hold a generous handful of mini eggs or your favourite small candy.

The printable includes the box in three pastel colours — yellow, green and lilac — each with a matching label.

You will need:

  • Egg-shaped box template printable
  • glue, scissors, small hole punch
  • embroidery thread or ribbon to attach label and close box

To make up the box:

  1. Cut out the template and cut/fold along the lines indicated on the sheet. The solid-coloured flaps at the top and bottom are folded out, towards the right side. All other folds are inwards.
  2. Glue the small tab (on the coloured side) and attach it to the last segment at the opposite end. This will create a tube.
  3. Glue each of the solid-coloured flaps on one end of the egg on the wrong side. Join them together with their neighbouring flap.
  4. Completely close one end of the egg, gluing all the flaps together.
  5. Repeat step 3 on the other end – remembering this time to leave one of the flaps free, so you can fill (and empty!) the box.
  6. Punch a hole on the open flap and its neighbour. You can now fill, and secure with thread and a label.

These paper eggs would be perfect for an egg hunt – small enough to hide in nooks and crannies, colourful enough to still be found.
