Easter in a Box

I was inspired by You are My Fave's in a box series (which you can see here and here and here) when it came to thinking what to send to Kate for Easter.  I wanted to do something fun for her to celebrate Easter given that she is off at university and wouldn't be home to engage in the usual chocolatefest.

I started by wrapping a cardboard box in some springy wrapping paper in Kate's favourite colour - turquoise.  I used the same paper to spell out "Easter in a box" on the top.

Then I filled it with goodies so she could have an Easter party in her room.  Here's what I included:
- a spring up and catch game
- glow stick bracelets
- a lollipop made of hair elastics
- egg-shaped lip balm
- a light up chick
- a flowery spring garland
- several packages of chocolate eggs 

Happy Easter Kate!
