Easter Treat Boxes (Pion Design/Green Tara)

Can you believe that Easter is just in 2 weeks? OMG I can't start to tell you how April will be so busy for me.  I have 3 kids, ALL with birthdays in April - PLUS Easter too!  If that is not enough, there are also 2 weeks of no school - since I do before and after school care for 3 children other than my own = I get nothing done for the first 2 weeks of April!  THEN, my Dusty Attic shipment is due to arrive soon and there is STILL... income taxes due for my childcare and retail businesses (of course I have procrastinated in order to scrap instead :)  Oh yeah - scrap work for 4 DT's now too!  AHHH!!! It makes Christmas seem like a breeze, LOL.  So please forgive me if I am not around much to visit blogs and galleries next month.  Anyways...

I have made 3 cute little kirigami boxes from my tutorial using beautiful Pion Design papers (a mix of "Studio of Memories" and " Fairytale of Spring" collections) and gorgeous Green Tara Aster flowers and many of their trims. The two paper collections work so very nicely together!

I used the pretty TCR palette #103 that is based on Pion's Fairytale of Spring collection since Pion Design is a sponsor for TCR for March.

Also, Pion's Fairytale of Spring collection is now available in 6x6 (shown below) - recently released after the overwhelming success of the 12x12 size.
