Pardon the pun! I've always thought easter eggs were a bit of a rip-off, but when the children were little I always got them one. Now they are older I have tended to buy them a box of chocs instead. Well, this year I have been seeing in the shops a lot of egg shaped boxes with a few mini sweets inside tied up with a ribbon and I thought "I could make those". So, yesterday I gave it a go...... I don't think I'll bother again, LOL! It was a bit of a feat of engineering, the two bits don't fit together too well, and I.m sure with a bit more time I could have made a bit of a better job of the "hinge" part. Unfortunately, I'm off to Bournemouth with work tomorrow and won't be back until late on Wednesday which didn't give me a huge amount of time. Anyway, here they are, one each for my DD's still to be filled with chocs
They look very "rustic" LOL. I think maybe I should have used a continuous strip for the sides and stuck them together in one go, but I didn't think of that at the time... plus I think the cereal packet wasn't tall enough. Anyway, I'm sure once they are filled with chocolates nobody will care!
