I created this box for the Creative Crew materials challenge. I chose to work with window sheets. Stampin' Up! makes great window sheets. They are thicker than transparencies and therefore make sturdy box tops. This box is a longer version of my Clear Top Candy Box. The insert keeps different colored eggs in separate compartments to give it a more upscale feel. This would be a cheerful gift to give at Easter time and with its polished look, everyone will think you bought it at a high-end candy store.
If you would like to make your own Clear Top Easter Box, please see my tutorial below.
