Now that we have all that info out of the way we can get right to my hop project I want to share with you. 
For this Easter Hop I decided to try a milk carton treat box with a twist. Why not a hexagon shape or 6 sided box. I used the instructions here as my guide.

I started with the milk carton image from the Imagine All Wrapped Up cartridge and filled it with paper from the Berries and Cream cartridge. I sized the image to 9" and cut it twice. I then printed another coordinating sheet of paper to trim out the side panels.

The adorable Owl is a svg freebie this week over at Treasure Box Designs. The title was not going to cut  well for the size I needed so I just typed and printed it on my computer. 
The tulips, which are on all the other panels of the box are cut at 3.5" from Walk in My Garden cartridge. 

The finished dimensions of this box is approx 7" tall, by 6" wide and about 5" diameter. It is very roomy inside for a little Easter grass and Easter treats.

Now onto the rest ofthe blog line up. Your next stop is Cori.
