5- Introducing Just Hatched!

By February 10, 2008General

The products I am about to introduce you to today hold a very special place in my heart.  Several months ago it occurred to me what an incredible blank canvas plastic hinged easter eggs are.  I wondered if there could be a way to make them elegant and versatile in the papercrafting world.  And that is how the idea of our Just Hatched stamp set & box came to life.


021008_egg_boxThis little box may look simple, but it has several attributes that make it a joy to work with.  It is made out of a very sturdy chipboard which is covered in a high quality matte white paper.  The box is white even on the interior so it is easy to maintain true color when painting it.  The matte white covering also gives you the ability to stamp directly on the surface with out any preparation work.

021008_egg_box_openThe box has a simple insert that has holes for six eggs.  It is a sturdy insert that can handle quite a bit of weight.  The insert is designed so that it is very easy to cover with designer paper as well.  The box measures about 4×6 inches and 3.5 inches tall.  The insert is removable for even more possibilities.  The box will be priced at only $4each, and of course, available exclusively from Papertrey Ink.

021008_painted_boxEaster is obviously something that comes to mind first when thinking of what exactly to do with this box.  But what about babies?  To begin my project for today, I painted my box pink.  I was very careful to paint the outside and the top rim only.  The matte surface of the box takes the paint beautifully!

021008_lining_piecesI just adore lined boxes.  They have such a boutique feel.  I decided to line my egg box with custom stamped designer paper that I created with Beautiful Blooms.  The easiest way I discovered was to cut pieces of paper for each individual side. I have included measurements below so it will take all the guess-work out when you line your own box…


  • 2) 6 x 3-1/4 inches (long sides)
  • 2) 4-3/16 x 3-1/4 inches (short sides)


  • 1) 6-1/4 x 4-3/8 inches (top)
  • 2) 6-1/4 x 1-15/16 inches (long sides)
  • 2) 4-3/8 x 1-15/16 inches (short sides)

021008_finished_box_lid_2To finish off the box, I added a strip of the same patterned paper I created for the lining, to the outside cover.  I pierced holes along either side of the strip and followed up with a pink marker to achieve faux stitching.  I also adhered the ribbon and label.

021008_side_of_boxI continued the patterned paper strip and ribbon down the sides of the box as well.


021008_label_closeupWith the concept of this box came the idea for our Just Hatched stamp set. This set contains images that make it easy to turn this box into the perfect gift.  This is one of three label images in the Just Hatched stamp set.  It reads "Half-Dozen Gifts Hatched Just For You, Little One".  The labels from this set coordinate with the Nestabilties Oval Dies perfectly!   

021008_rolled_sockI knew that I wanted to put an itty-bitty pair of baby socks into each egg.  I rolled them up tightly and tucked a pair into each of six eggs.

021008_egg_ribbonTo give the plastic eggs a little pizazz, I decided to add ribbon.  The ribbon needs to be about 10-inches long for each egg.  Lay the ribbon out flat, apply a glue dot to the bottom point and top point of the egg.  Adhere the bottom of the egg to the center of the ribbon strip.

021008_ribbon_tiedPull the ends of the ribbon up and around the egg and knot it into place on top of the egg.  The two glue dots on either end will prevent the ribbon from sliding off!

Once I assembled everything together, the ensemble looked like this…


I am just in LOVE with this box.  The way that the insert holds the eggs perfectly in place is such a STUNNING presentation!  After showing the Just Hatched Egg Box & stamp set to our Design Team, they came up with a plethora of uses that aren’t necessarily geared towards eggs, or Easter for that matter!  I thought I would share some of their ideas with you BEFORE the reveal on February 15th.  Somewhat of a sneak peek at what is to come.  Instructions & supply lists will be available for ALL of these project in the Ink Pad gallery after the reveal!

021008_laurens_box_3Lauren Meader designed this box with candy filled "carrots" made from disposable frosting bags!  She raised the box insert to the top edge of the box to allow room for the carrots.  They look as though they are being pulled from the ground when you remove one!  How much fun would that be for kids!  (Well, adults too, for that matter!)


Heather Nichols Created this vintage findings box.  It is the perfect gift for a crafting friend year-round.


021008_heathers_box_insideShe was able to use the insert holes to keep the spools of vintage trims in place!

021008_jennifers_box_outsideJennifer Ellefson created a special Easter box for a teacher.  (Take note of the special border along the edge of the box that uses stamps from the set that read "Just a little something" and "For an eggstra special teacher").

021008_jennifers_box_insideThe eggs are filled with all kinds of fun desk supplies that will help get them through the last half of the school year!  A gift card to an office supply store could be attache to the inside of the cover to continue the theme and support your child’s classroom!

021008_taylors_box_outsideTaylor VanBruggen took a really simple approach to the outside of her box.  I just LOVE the way she used the ribbon!

021008_taylors_box_inside_2She discovered that the holes in the box insert were the perfect size for miniature cupcakes!  Imagine bringing a box like this to a friend or co-worker!  They would be so impressed!

021008_lynns_box_outsideLynn Mercurio made this colorful box.  She utilized all the wonderful colors in the ribbon she chose to decorate the box.  They are all wonderful "spring" colors!

021008_lynns_box_insideI am in love with the way she decorated the eggs inside with ric-rac & primas!  They are almost too pretty to open!

021008_beckys_box_outsideBecky Oehlers took a nature based approach to her box, coinciding with the Spring Garden label included in the Just Hatched stamp set.

021008_beckys_box_insideShe used real eggshells to create a gift of a spring garden for someone special.  The best part?  The recipient can plant the flower & eggshell directly into the ground.  The eggshell will provide additional nutrition to get the plant established!

021008_genys_box_2Geny Cassady created another version of a baby box with lots of assorted necessities, like washcloths, pacifiers, nail clippers, etc.  It is a wonderful gift that you can make in advance and will be very useful (and pretty to look at) for any new mother!  I love the way she added little buttons on either side of the label.  Such an adorable touch!

021008_amys_boxAmy Rysavy gave "Spring Garden" new meaning with eggs full of Primas!  Such a fun gift to give to a favorite stamping buddy!  We all know you can never have enough Primas!

021008_debbies_boxDebbie Olson worked her usual magic with combining several patterned papers elegantly together when altering her box.  The colors are so fresh and "springy"!

021008_lisas_boxLast but not least, Lisa Johnson created this masterpiece.  As a special treat to you, Lisa will be sharing some fun details about the contents of her box and a project idea with you on Tuesday in a tutorial feature on her blog!

    Stephanie says:

    Wow this will be just so fun to play with. I would say my idea I will use is : Make a christmas theme box and use the icing holders and fill with hot cocoa, marshmellows, candy canes, hershey kisses to make Snowman soup in a box. LOL Add 2 more holders with Christmas candy or even a gift certificate as part of the surprise!!!! Looking forward Nicole to these being a real hit. Good luck.

  • 53

    Omygosh, this is an amazing idea. I can alread think of a dozen applications. But the first for a friend would be to take those little biodegradable brown cups you use for starting plants. And fill them with the appropiate start mixture and the seed. All ready to water and start your own special garden. Perhaps some herbs for starter!

  • 54

    I love the idea of using it for baby stuff & Lauren’s “carrots” are amazing – who would not like to receiving something so amazing as all of these!

  • 55
    Victoria says:

    Unbelievable that you have all these amazing ideas in your head…I must have this! I am going to a baby shower in April and this is my gift. I also want it for my daughter’s birthday. She will be 6, and there are 6 spaces, one space for each year of her life!

    I am really going to be in trouble with the husband!!

  • 87
    Kiko says:

    There is never a lack of surprises at Papertrey. You not only keep coming up with “out-of-the-box” ideas for stamp sets, you’ve actually reinvented the box!!! I have two projects that especially caught my eye… the babysock eggs are so pretty, and those carrots Lauren did are so fun! Either would make delightful gifts to give to someone special.

    Oh, my goodness! Each day gets better and better! I love the fact that you showcased several ideas from different designers–I definitely see myself “casing” the Easter carrots and baby gift items. I think presentation is just as important as the gift–and its all here. Can’t wait to the 15th and to see whats next. Awesome!

    Crafty Math Chick says:

    ALL of the boxes were really beautiful, but I think the one with the baby plants inside intrigued me the most – what a wonderful housewarming gift! I had no idea baby plants could be planted in eggshells, let alone that they provided nutrition for them as they grew! Terrific!

    What will you talented ladies come up with next?


  • 97
    Tracy says:

    All of these ideas are sooooo cute, but I have to say my favorite idea is to put the baby socks into the eggs! I have soo many friends right now that are having babies and this would be the perfect gift!

    Steph says:

    These are all so beautiful and so creaive… I must say I’m most “wowed” by Becky’s spring garden in the box! I can’t wait to get one of these and alter it myself… oh and the coordinating stamp set is so cute, too!

    I am just SPEECHLESS! All of these ideas are just wonderful and all different. So many possibilities for this cute box! You and your design team are FABULOUS, to say the least!

  • 101

    These are all just DARLING! I love the baby socks! I am curious if the holes would work to give a set of decorated clear glass ornaments for Christmas? I’m sure there are many possibilities for the boxes!

  • 102

    Tough to choose from so many wonderful samples, plus the plethora of ideas swirling around in my head. However, as my daughter has a wonderful teacher that she just LOVES, and Teacher Appreciation day will be here before we know it, I’d have to say the box containing teacher desk items!

    Denise Groves says:

    This is sooooo cute!!!! I just love all the ideas. I can’t wait to play with this.

    Anette Eakins says:

    Oh my gosh- this just takes the cake(or should I say the egg?)! What a GREAT idea!!! LOVE this box. I love all the ideas, but the baby theme with the eggs stuffed with baby socks and other baby items really is my favorite (probably because I have a new baby gift to someone give soon).
    I am so anxious every day to get on your blog to see what else you have come up with!
    Thank you!!

    Stephanie (steffie1027) says:

    Nichole, you are so innovative & amazing! This box & stamp set are spectacular with endless possibilites! I love the baby gift idea & the cupcake box that Taylor made! All of the boxes are beautiful!

  • 115
    brittany says:

    I really like the boxes! Thanks for all of the good ideas! Would onesies rolled up work? Transfer the baby info onto one onesie…stamp the rest or throw in other essentials…and take it to the hospital in a cute little box! I do like the “baby” applied boxes! Can’t wait to see more.

  • 116

    Oooooooh I love this little box set & the stamps. I’d love one (or two) of these to make vintage-inspired treat boxes for my son’s teachers.

    L-O-V-E it. Fabulous!

  • 117

    Love the box for baby gifts! The little socks are sooooo cute. It’s a great gift when you want to give just a little something! Perfect — can’t wait to see the stamps.

  • 118
    Melissa says:

    OMG, Nichole, what WILL you think of next?? I am amazed at these precious li’l boxes and cannot wait to get my hands on one. All of you came up with such creative ideas. I love the idea of making it into a special reward box for my kids to dig into year long when they’ve done something special. I can hide a few quarters, some candy, small toy, etc. in each of the eggs for them to choose from. Keep ’em coming, girl. I am dying for the 15th to get here!!

  • 119

    Angelina Leonard says:

    I love the idea of hiding the baby socks in the eggs. It is always fun to get cute baby socks. And Becky’s idea of the eggshell spring garden is awesome and beautiful. I don’t know how you ladies do it. Great job. Angelina

  • 121
    Rita says:

    OUT OF THE BOX CREATIVITY! Becky’s approach of using egg shells is unique definitely something I would like to try.

  • 122
    Kelly B says:

    What great projects! All of them are wonderful, but I can see the baby sock gift being the new mother’s favorite gift…what a cute box to set in baby’s room to hold baby powder, lotion, etc., after the socks are put away.

  • 123
    CindyML says:

    What a talented group of designers!! Each project is so beautiful. I can’t wait to see what is in store for the 15th reveal!! Keep on creating!

    OMGosh! I don’t know why I keep acting surprised every time you show us your ingenious ideas!!! If I could just be a ‘cell on the wall’ in your brain for just one day I’m sure I could have enough ideas to last me forever!! I absolutely love the idea of the baby socks!! The possibilities are endless for this project! Thanks so very much for sharing your creativity!

    Alison says:

    I love it, this is just my kind of thing! They’re all so gorgeous. I loove the cupcake idea since i bake too and the baby socks.. to cute. What size are the holes? They might be nice for displaying hand made/decorated candles or small enough clear top tins with coffee, tea, little pots of jam, spices, whatever. ..Im away to rack my brain for more ideas.

  • 128
    Karleen says:

    Oh my these are just adorable. My Ukranian eggs I make would look awesome in there!!

    I LOVE the baby gift idea… JUST ADORABLE! Your Design Team is FABULOUS, and what a great price for the box! My mind is stuck only on pinks and blues as I quickly post to join the THOUSANDS of others entering the drawing, but I look forward to coming up with other applications… I am sure the stamp set will also inspire me. Have you considered a Papertrey payment installment plan?!?! 🙂

    I am in so much trouble! Should I tell my husband now or later how much money I will be spending???? Good thing the release is right after Valentines and maybe he will be in a loving mood! I can tell you I need alot of these boxes, and all of the other stuff you have shown so far!

  • 132
    Glorie says:

    What an amazing idea!! I love the spring garden idea. Herbs for the kitchen would be my first project for that.


  • 133
    catlover6 says:

    Another wonderful idea from the ladies at PTI. As I looked at this, I thought, ‘what a great way to package a house warming gift for a new neighbor’. A space for a gift card for a local restaurant, maybe another card for the movie theater, a slot for a town map, a homemade card for a free night of baby-sitting (so the new neighbors can go to the movie), etc. So many possibilities!

  • 134
    Jen M says:

    Love the teacher box and the garden one is just sooooo clever…I can see giving little vegetable plants to friends for thier gardens…

  • 135
    Barb W says:

    Wow, absolutely awesome!!!! All of the fantastic ideas. I have to admit if I had just seen ‘the box’ in a store, I would of passed it up as I’m not one to think outside the box, but now, I want it!!!! I love the Spring Garden and know I am going to make one for my SIL. I will be putting herbs in each as we are both into recipes and using fresh herbs. THANKS, THANKS, THANKS!

  • 136
    Carol W. says:

    Wow, I love this idea! Nichole, you never cease to amaze me. 🙂 I really like the idea of the cupcakes because I LOVE to bake! This would make such a wonderful and thoughtful gift. Way to go PaperTrey!

  • 137
    Christine says:

    I am stunned by every one of the ideas that your designers created. Who would have thought that such a simple box could produce such elegant and fun results. I really love your idea though of the baby socks in the eggs. That is something that I would love to give as a baby gift. I can’t wait to get my hands on one of those boxes. Your ideas are just fantastic as always.

  • 138
    Patricia C. says:

    I need a special gift for a friend having a baby and it’s been years since I’ve had to come up with a baby gift. I’m wondering if six tees will roll up and fit into the holes (without the eggs). Can’t wait until the 15th to order.

  • 139
    Shirley says:

    The samples are so beautiful, love to look at what several crafters can do with the same item for their own unique look.

  • 140
    Carolyn Mustopa says:

    OMG, you’re killing me! How on earth do you do it?!!! I love the idea for baby gifts. Oh, and of course, CUPCAKES! How perfect. Really, I think I can live without cable TV now — I’ll just automatically route that money to PTI.

  • 141
    Jennifer Delaurier says:

    I am without words…these are the most beautifully decorated boxes I have ever seen. I am so anxious to try out my own ideas…I am a chef, so perhaps something a little “kitchen inspired” for a house warming gift, or even for a hostess gift as well. Thank you so much for even more inspiration!

  • 142
    Ilene B. says:

    Nicole – Do you and your teams sleep? This is an awesome idea and the ladies as usual are amazing. I love Lauren’s idea and I am a big fan of Debbie Olson, but they are all beautiful! I would love to have this prize coming my way, thanks for the opportunity!!!
    Ilene B.

  • 143
    Deb says:

    ALL of the boxes are beautifully decorated. I love the idea for using it as a gift to a crafting friend, and putting goodies inside the eggs. But the baby box with the ribbon-wraped eggs is absolutely adorable. Thanks for all the GREAT ideas!

  • 144

    So awesome!! I’ve been covering paper mache boxes but with fabric. Paper would’ve been easier! I love this new box of yours – you’ve done it again Nichole!! I even had to call my husband over to see your project and the other samples – he’s impressed!

  • 145

I love the gift box you made with the baby socks…such a sweet, and beautiful, gift. I have a friend that just had a little pink bundle herself and I would love to make one of these to present to her.

  • 147
    Mary Hines says:

    Oh, what beautiful boxes. They are all so lovely. But, I have to say that I really like Lauren’s idea of the carrots. I make “surprises” for my family members on holidays and these would be a perfect surprise.

  • 153
    Carol Hinton says:

    All the boxes have been decorated so beautifully! Becky’s spring garden box is my favorite. I love the idea of putting small plants inside the cracked egg shells. I also like the size of the box. It’s not too small and not too large. It’s just right.

    Starla (star) says:

    WOWIEWOWWOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What great minds!! I just taught a lesson to the 4-6th graders at church about thinking outside the box….these girls did it wonderfully (and it looks like I need to practice that concept more myself!!) Love all these ideas….the carrots, the baby, the teacher….(thinking, thinking….)

    ElizabethB says:

    It really is a toss up for me between Becky’s spring garden (love love love the colors) or Lauren’s easeter box (all of the tiny details). 🙂 I really love all the ideas and ‘peeks’ you are giving us.

    I love the idea of a spring garden, especially this wintry time of year! Another idea would be to use the egg box to hold the Christian Easter Eggs; it would be a beautiful family heirloom!

  • 175
    mary says:

    Oohhh and aahhh to all the box creations. My hands down favorite has to be Lauren’s carrots. It’s all about color and children’s delight! Of course, Becky’s plantable eggs were a very close second.

  • 176
    Linda Roberts says:

    I absolutely love these boxes. What a wonderful way to give a gift. I love what everyone has done with them, but my favorites are using the plastic eggs, the frosting bags and the cupcakes. I can’t wait to get some of these and the new stamp set. Nicole you never fail to amaze me.

  • 177
    Jeni Benson says:

    I just love all of the ideas you came up with for these boxes. My favorite has to be the eggs filled with baby socks though. I was just at two baby showers yesterday, these would have made such cute gifts. I wonder if you couldn’t also use the box to hold a set of votive candles & holders.

  • 178

  • 190

    Sheri Watts says:

    These are awesome! I love the baby sock idea and the mini garden! Actually all the ideas really were cool. When I saw the socks I was thinking onesies would be cute. (rolled up and put in the holes – not in an egg of course) So many possibilities since the insert can be taken out! Thanks again Papertrey!

  • 207

  • 210
    Stephanie says:

    Oh my, what a beautiful box and the ideas are limitless. As soon as I saw your box, I thought Mothers Day. I always send my mother-in law seeds for the garden. We have a memorial garden at her house for my son who passed away two years ago. Last year was a tree in his honor, this year, she is going to get a box with seedlings already planted and ready to go! I can not wait!!!

    You truly have an amazing creative mind, I love coming to your blog daily!!

    off to see Taylor’s creation.

  • 216
    Cindy Major says:

    Love, love, love the new box! There are just so many possibilities!

    I do want to try the baby gift idea for a coworker that will be leaving on maternity leave in April, but the new idea that popped into my mind was Christmas ornaments! Either to offer handmade gift ornaments to someone or as a put away box for the rest of the year.

    I’m very excited about playing with this new product!

    HOLY MOLEY!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVED the boxes!! I feel like the Meryvns commerical once again, wanting the 15th to be here, so the ordering will “open, open, open!”. I want to use the box for a wedding shower I am going to. We are hosting a scrapbooking “shower” for one of our fellow scrapbookers. I am going to load the box with small jars, in the jars, wedding scrapbooking emblishments. Won’t she be SURPRISED!

    that spring garden in a box was very cool. the use of real eggs to plant is great! i also loved the idea to use glue dots to keep the ribbon in place on your sock eggs.

  • 236
    Melissa D. says:

    WOW!!! I am not sure which one I like better. My son will be starting school this year so the teacher idea would be great. But I love all of them and will possibly be using every idea somewhere down the road.

    JoLynn C. says:

    Like Picasso who entered his ‘blue’ period… I have entered my ‘cupcake’ period and can’t imagine what joy decorated mini-cakes would bring springing from that container. I’m also thinking little baby food jars filled with buttons and beads and treasures from the past would be cute (with the lids decorated of course) as a gift for an artsy friend. Can’t wait to order.

  • 245
    Beverly says:

    WOW! I just love this boxes and you have really shown their versatility well.. I would have to say that my favorite is the candy-filled carrot! What a fun surprise… and second would be the filled eggs….they are beautiful! Thanks for the idea and the inspiration.

    LaDonna S. says:

    These are awesome and have so many possibilities!! I LOVE the baby gift ideas and need to make one for a spring baby shower…but, in addition, I think even my teenagers would be impressed with one of these Easter boxes full of goodies. So I will let the Easter bunny deliver some to our door!

    The 1/2 dozen baby gifts is so precious!!
    The cupcakes are sweet.. I love the eggs decorated with the primas and rickrack…

  • 273
    Samantha Stobbe says:

    I’m amazed at the creativity by all your ladies. I can’t think outside the box. It is so hard to pick one since to me they are all different. I love the Spring in a box, what a neat idea.

    Everyone of these boxes are gorgeous!


  • 276

    Great ideas…all of them! But I especially love the baby socks idea! I am trying to think who I know that is pregnant so I can make this for them!

  • 283
    Jessica says:

    Being a complete cupcake fanatic, I am in love with Taylor’s idea! It’s so hard coming up with ways to present cupcakes without them getting smooshed and messing up the frosting – this looks perfect! I love the baby gift idea too – seems as if there’s something in the water around these parts because SO MANY people I know are having babies, which means lots of baby gifts needed!

    What a fun product!

  • 284
    Karen says:

    I love the idea of filling eggs with vintage findings, probably because I am of a vintage age!

  • 286
    Sue says:

    I’ve been on every day to find out what’s new and I think this is by far my favourite. At first I thought the egg idea was pretty snazzy… then the socks… then the vingtage ribbon spools…. then the cupcakes.. Oh My Goodness the possibilities. I would drool (wait I already am) at the possibility of playing with this box before everyone else….. Oh wow I’m actually excited just like I’ve already won!

  • 287
    Julie Baris says:

    I love your site. It is the first place I go when I get online in the morning. Especially now, with you showing us new things everyday! I loved everything the eggbox has to offer. It is hard to pick a favorite, but I would have to say the garden one was pretty creative! Thanks! Julie

    LOVE the box and all the ideas. If I had to pick one it would be the cupcake box. What an excellent idea to give as a hostess gift or welcome to the neighborhood treat. I plan on making one for each of my staff of nine for their birthday. Could also put muffins in it. The possibilities are endless. Can’t wait to order.

  • 292
    Leah says:

    I think a little boy who loves dinosaurs would get a kick out of this presentation. Eggs filled with dinos,magnifying glasses, etc would be fun–lots of earthy paper tones/browns/greens. Would make a great birthday gift.

  • 293
    Mary Webb says:

    I love all of the ideas. I think the box by Lauren Meader is so adorable, I’d love to make those for all my little nephews and neice.

    lollipopsanroses says:

    Nichole, a “box for all seasons”-one for each month, and then some! My little brain is really getting cramped by all the wonderful possibilities that can be found for this little treasure box! Can somebody invent a clock with ‘more time’on it so we can all do more playing here? How much more can one say about all the wonderful surprises you have already shared with us, great job, y’all.

  • 304

    I absolutely LOVE your egg boxes. It is hard for me to choose the one I like best but considering I have a new granddaughter the box with the baby socks seems to be the one that draws my attention the most.

    I am Ukrainian and these boxes would be perfect for six Pysanky(Ukrainian Easter Eggs)!! What a fun package to give them in. The eggs take a lot of work to decorate so why not have a pretty package to go along with them! You girls have the BEST ideas!

    Adelina says:

    These are adorable boxes! I grew up in Germany as an Army brat and the first thing that came to mind for these boxes is a chocolate treat available year around in Germany called Kinder Eggs {http://malincho.com/kindereggs.asp} When I was in middle school and got good grades, my dad would take me out to get half a dozen of these as a reward. I would love to get one of these boxes and order some for my dad as a Father’s Day gift. Thanks for these fantastic ideas!

  • 314

  • 323
    Holly says:

    oh my goodness how cute are these?! I have to admit the spring garden is an idea I never would have come up with, but it’s such a wonderful idea. Since it’s Valentine’s Day in my mind right now maybe I’d fill it with coupons for things like a massage, a special dessert, a car wash, etc. for my DH.

    I absolutely adore all of the creations. I can’t pick just one, but if I had to it would be the one created by Lauren. I love the carrots. I can’t wait to place an order and get the stuff to play with!!!! Such possibilities. Have you thought about making available for purchase a plain piece of the chipboard and additional inserts to allow a layering of small items? I think it would make a great box to put mini cupcake papers filled with homemade chocolates or small papercrafting items, such as brads, buttons, bling, ets. Just food for thought.

    I’m in love with this box and stamp set as I collect and make eggs (Carved ukaraian pasanki eggs) I also love to use rub-ons on blown eggs. I love the carrots, cupcake and baby sock ideas also. Oh could I have fun…

    Jacque (SCS: Petals) says:

    My favorite? There are too many to choose from. The are all really wonderful, but the three I can see myself replicating are the baby socks, carrots, and plants in real egg shells. I know people who would love to receive all three! What a great DT you have!

    What a wonderful box!!!!! I LOVE it. I know of several friends having babies that would adore receiving such a special package.

    And for Easter gifts….the box would be a great box to store all those special keepsakes after you ate the treats.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Linda Deline says:

    Just amazing. I love all the boxes. I can see creating a ‘just for you’ box with trial size things from the drug store like lip balm, gum, nail polish, etc., or a bride’s box with a new hankie, a garter, lip balm, sachets, etc., or a box for a new home owner with a tape measure, nails, etc., or a sewer with needles, etc., or a …. sorry got carried away. Guess I’ll be ordering several boxes. God bless. Linda

  • 367
    Susan N says:

    They are so cute and creative. I love the baby idea. You could also use it as a bridal shower gift, find glass wear that fits in the holes and fill them with spices or cooking utensil. Put in a recipe and include the spices in the recipe. Fill them with office supplies for a gift for your co-worker. You could also fill with crafting supplies for one of your crafting buddies.They would make great hostess gifts. They would be fun to fill and decorate for a 50th birtday. The possibilities are endless. I am very excited over this.

    Sandra Flowers says:

    Hello Nicole…I just saw a post on SUDSOL regarding your “Nestibles?” It brought me to your website and noticed this adorable box filled with socks and carrots filled with candy. I just love the idea…how cute of a project that anyone can finish and so manageable. It is one of those projects if you look at it friends will say I can’t do something like that and has such a “WOW” factor. Now how do I purchase one of these boxes? I have a baby shower coming up soon and would love to present this lovely gift box to her. So many other ideas too! Thanks for all your creativity!

  • 396
    Tona says:

    Wow! What an original idea. I’m having a hard time to choose a favorite. Such great ideas. I really like the baby socks as well as the garden growing from egg shells for a gardener & the eggs full of primas for a scrapper. This is one of those “gotta have it” products.

  • 397
    Lisa H says:

    OMG – I just love this box and oh the possibilities! I love all the designs but my two favorite are Lauren’s carrots and Amy’s prima flowers! This is another must have!

    Janet Smith says:

    All the box ideas are terrific but the baby socks in eggs is so cute and the cupcakes are adorable but I loved the little tiny egg garden best. My daughter raises chickens and loves gardening so she is getting one of these for Easter, that is if they aren’t all sold out before I get a chance to get one. This is so much fun coming here each day to something new and exciting, thanks so much.

    Lori M says:

    Everyone has such spectacular ideas!!!! Too bad your idea didn’t come out earlier, my son is going to a baby shower today, the sock idea would have been so great!!!!

    Bee says:

    WAOW! All I can say is WAOW!
    You never ceased to amaze me!!
    All of those boxes are stunning, simply gorgeous!♥
    And I love the little oval frame in that stamp set, it’s so elegant and classy and the perfect touch as accent on those boxes! And they take paint so beautifully!!…

    What would I put first in those boxes? Hmm…So many possibilities. I think what attracts me most at the time would be the spring garden. I love the idea of the eggshells and would love to start an herbgarden in there and then give it away! 🙂

  • 406
    Isabel says:

    Just when I think you can’t beat the last item that you introduce, you create something new that wows me even more. You are incredible. I can’t wait to play around with the new box. I love that you can paint it and decorate the inside with any design/element that you choose. It’s versatility is what intrigues me the most. You’ve done it again:)

  • 407
    Christi E. says:

    I love the baby gift idea. I also have a sister getting married and this would make a wonderful presentation of gifts for her on her wedding day. My something borrowed, something blue, and also a few other necessitities like tissue and mints! I can’t wait to get my hands on one!!!

    Winthrop84 says:

    You should have had a contest as to who decorated each box. I would have had NO trouble what-so-ever identifying Heather and Taylor’s box. Each of those beautifully decorated boxes SCREAM their names. They all are beautiful though. I am most impressed with the “egg” box. How perfectly green for the planet!! Thanks for a chance to win.

  • 417
    swheet says:

    Which idea intrigued me most? They are all wonderful! My top two have to be the baby sock box, and the spring garden. Both wonderful uses of eggs within the beautiful box. The box surely demonstates an endless possibilities for anyone to create a beautiful project.

  • 418
    Renae says:

    All of the projects were great. I can see myself using it for treats like those in the “carrots” or for small containers full of stamping accessories like brads and buttons.

  • 427
    Jennifer Franzen says:

    I am very impressed with this new idea. My thought would be to give it to a new stamper with each egg filled with stamping accessories. Items I thought might be fun would be brads, sequins, primas, eyelets, etc.

    Granna on the Go says:

    What an awesome idea!!!!! The box has endless possibilities either painted or covered with stamped paper. The elegance of the “Just Hatched” labels really adds a classic and adorable touch. What a clever baby gift with socks in the eggs. Your ribbon tied onto the egg is really sharp. The pink ribbon looks like something we will be seeing in the next few months. Love that soft color!!!!!!!!!
    Nichole, you are so awesome! Your design team has certainly “showed their stuff” and are most worthy to be where they are. You have such a good eye for design and talent.

    cknutti says:

    One of the things I like best about PaperTrey is the ingenuity of your design process. You have created stamps and accessories that coordinate beautifully together, and not only do they meet specific needs, but they provide a jumping-off point for the rest of us to use our own creativity.

    I love the way these boxes showcase a gift and can do double-duty as storage later on. I love the egg-holding possibilities.

    By the way, you are one marketing genius!

  • 447
    Rebecca says:

    I think that it would be fun to make a gift of this to my nieces. I would decorate it in fun and brilliant spring colors and fill it with the candy filled eggs that are pre-filled. M n Ms, Starbust Jelly bean eggs, ect. It would be fun to find a variety of treats for the kids, they would have a rainbow of color to look at and eat on Easter morning.

    Elizebeth says:

    As a vegan family, I am always trying to find new and unique ways to celebrate the traditions of Easter with our children while respecting our beliefs.

    While the bright plastic eggs in the store are just fine, these boxes with openings in the right size are an elegant way to present a fun gift.

    I look forward to being able to bring a new way of celebration into our family with these boxes. For people who don’t eat eggs at an egg filled Holiday, I have to say
    THANK YOU!!!!

  • 450
    Angie says:

    I love these little boxes. They seem like the perfect size for a little thank you gift when someone invites you over to their home! My friends and I used to get together for movie nights and we would rotate who hosted. I would decorate the box for our movie night and inside, instead of the typical popcorn and candy, the little “egg holder” could be used to hold mini liquor bottles! Our movie nights were our miniature “ladies night out” afterall!

    I think the beauty of this box is the many, many possibilities. I am impressed with all of them, but I especially like the “spring in a box” with Becky’s natural eggshells and plants. So many gardeners with just love this. Plus this project could lend itself to the Green Thumb set.

    What a cute idea. I think this would make a great picnic addition. You could decorate it with red checkerboard paper and add ants all over it. Then on the inside you could use the insert to hold your condiment bottles.

    What a great little box. And let me just say, your design team is amazing! So many great ideas. I especially LOVED the box Becky made with the tiny plants in the eggshells. What a fun gift, and just amazing presentation.

  • 475

    The garden in a box is AMAZING! I can’t wait to try out one of the boxes. I think it would be fun to put some coordinating, handmade jewelry in eggs for my Mom and Mom-in-law for Mother’s Day!

    I have looked over these projects about 15 times. Love the spring garden in egg shells, teacher supplies, cupcakes…I am so inspired. I will have to buy a good number of those boxes.

    Every single idea is fabulous!!! I am in love with the baby sock idea and the cupcakes … these are things I would totally do. But now I am so inspired!! My 5 year old would adore dinosaur egss filled with tiny dinasaurs to play with and my 2 year old would love eggs filled with magnetic ABC’s. Can’t you just imagine the fun I would have decorating the boxes for those gifts?! {Pick Me – Pick Me!}

  • 494

    These are just amazing projects! How wonderful to have a cost-effective way to make such a special gift for a special person. I think my favorites so far are the “carrot” bags and the spring garden in the real eggshells, but it’s so hard to choose. They’re all spectacular!

  • 495

    Wow! These boxes are ALL so precious! I LOVE the egg idea… no matter what is in them and I love the fact that your team always demonstrates several ways to use each stamp set and item you sell because I am not creative enough to think to use this box for a baby gift or a flower garden! You ladies are AMAZING and I love reading your blogs everyday!

    I really love the spring garden that Becky O. did – what a great idea for my mom and MIL!! I also liked the teacher idea and would like to twist it into elegant office supplies for a gal with a new job…..covering those binder clips in coordinating paper, tying ribbons around the paper clips, etc. I wonder if a spice jar would fit in those slots – that might make a really cool gift for a bride or a chef!
    Loving all the new goodies!!

  • 511
    Lisa K says:

    That little garden inside those egg shells are amazing! I am not a plant person but would love to give that to someone who is! The team has thought of EVERYTHING! Very creative…I also love the babysocks and those carrot candies! Great ideas! Lisa K

    Wow! What a unique accessory. I have so many family members and friends either starting or expanding their families that the baby sock project is really an inspiration. On the other hand, I am always looking for new ways to deliver treats to friends and family so the cupcake and candy carrots are also fantastic. I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these so I can experiment with other uses too!

    Holy Cow! THese boxes are awesome! I especially like Lauren’s candy carrot patch and the spring garden. I know that my SIL would love the spring garden since she is the gardener in the family.

    LorrieJane says:

    I am, at the same time, bursting with admiration and pea green with envy at the boundless creativity of all those involved with your products and ideas. The freshness of your concepts, in a world where there is nothing really ‘new’ under the sun, is astounding.

    As a jewelry artist, as well as paper crafter, I plan on using these boxes to create jewelry sets. Maybe, a necklace with 2 coordinating bracelets, and 3 sets of matching earrings. The possibilities are endless (and isn’t that just what you had in mind).

    WOW, over 530 comments, LOL. I have to say I am loving, REALLY loooving the garden box. What a wonderful way to present clippings from you garden for a new gardener, a new home owner, Mother’s Day and so many other reasons. Even a “just wanted to share” gift. I can hardly wait to play with this idea. The designer team did an outstanding job, as always 🙂

  • 545
    Pat V. says:

    I love the box with the little baby socks in them. I could see the possiblity of a matching hair ribbon for a girl. Or some small jel/window clings I have seen at craft shows! Wonderful way to present small items! And I have 2 baby showers to attend this spring. Thanks for the great ideas:):)

  • 546
    Suzanne Trickel says:

    The baby idea caught my attention since our family will be welcoming a new baby this year – but the teacher gift idea also has my mind going since before I know it, the end of the year will be here.

Can you imagine the look on someones face when they received one of these as a gift – for *any* occasion. Wow. Hmmmmm …what about one for a 40th or 50th birthday … done in black … with ‘old’ things little containers inside ….. or one with playdough in each spot for a child, with some cookie cutters tied on the outside as an embellishment …. SOOOOOOO many possibilities!!!

    Oh, how precious! As a first time grandmother-to-be, I think the baby socks would be a fun gift for my son and daughter-in-law this Easter!

  • 600
    Beth says:

    Oh Nichole I love them all but I think the one that really caught my eye was the garden in a box.
    This would also be cute with bath stuff in it like salts and small soaps.

  • 601
    Kris A says:

    Absolutely stunning! All the boxes are wonderful….my fav was Amy’s box of prima’s followed by the baby boxes. Can’t wait to get my hands on one of these to decorate.

    Farnell says:

    All the boxes are sooo creative!!! I like the socks in the eggs cause i was looking for a gift to give a friend having her daughter around Easter. You have always thought outside the box, but now, Wow, you are thinking inside the box!!! It doesn’t get much better than that!

  • 607
    Hillary says:

    YAY!!!! Cute boxes to make our own!! And they’re blank and ready to decorate!!! Such wonderful ideas by the design team too–I can’t pick a favorite…they’re all creative and ‘eggs=citing’! 🙂

    Ann Gallihugh says:

    This is amazing! I just love it. So many ideas came to mind while looking at all the boxes. I just love the “carrot” box. So many things I could do with that. I can’t wait until the 15th!

  • 611

    Way to go designers! Keep on truckin’.

  • 612
    Barbara Brandt says:

    Absolutely everyone of them is a darling idea for the “Just Hatched” Box. However, the one that catches my eye and intrigues me the most at this time is the baby socks one. The reason for this is that I just became an aunt again for the 8th time on Feb. 1st. I have a new nephew. His name is Shepherd Paton (pronounced Payton). He is the most handsome and darling baby. So, I would use the box to stuff plastic eggs with socks and/or other tiny baby things as a gift to my new nephew, Shepherd.

    What a unique box! An idea that makes you say “Why didn’t I think of that”! All the ideas were fabulous but my favorite is the Spring garden in a box. So clever to use eggshells and what a surprise when the recipient opens the box.

  • 617
    Susan Kapp says:

    They are all wonderful, my head is spinning with ideas! I have always used paper mache’ boxes that need to be treated before embellishing, this box is wonderful!

  • 618
    Eileen M says:

    Oh,my more awesome samples! I am intigued by the baby gift, as I have a grand-nephew on the way. Too cute for words! I already have the heart shapes tin in my cart from Lauren’s blog, and now will have to add this, too! Thanks for the inspiration!

  • 619
    Anya says:

    These are so clever! I can see the box as a great herb garden starter kit, with small clay pots full of either seeds or small plants. A great gift for a chef! They would also be perfect for small candles. An assortment of colors and scents.. my mother-in-law would love it! (Way to brainstorm a Mother’s Day gift!)

  • 620
    Sue D says:

    Wow, what fantastic ideas! The baby socks are perfect for a baby shower. The box is a gift all by itself. I’m anxious to see what other ideas people come up with.

  • 622
    Kristyn Sinnott says:

    How fun to see all the ideas others had. Too cool. I thought maybe fill with bath or hair supplies for that favorite little girl or teen. For the little boy, hot wheels, silly puddy, gum etc.

    My favorite of the ones done was that real egg one with the plants. Now, wow! that was unique. Loved it.

    Love all the ideas but the one that I was most intrigued by was the spring garden box. (maybe that’s wishful thinking on my part!! It’s bitterly cold here today!)

  • 640
    SHERYL says:

    I’d have to say the one that intrigues me the most is the carrot by Lauren M. The way she jazzed up the bags and made it her own & just the overall imagination of it all! BUT, they are ALL wonderful ideas…such talented ladies.

  • 641
    Melissa says:

    What an adorable concept for a box. I know this will make such a great box for all kinds of fun gifts. As a pastry chef, I like the mini cupcake idea, but the easter eggs filled with a myriad of goodies will keep this box of ideas flowing for a long time.

    How ingenious!! I have three weddings and two baby showers this year..can’t wait to try my hand at creating some gifts with your fabulous ideas! And then the brides-to-be or mothers-to-be can use the box for photos or momentos! Thanks again Nichole and Team… I am in awe of your creativity.

Perfect teacher or co-workers gifts. Oh pick me, pick me, I would love to make and give those boxes out as gifts. They’re all so amazing!!!!

  • 654

  • 692
    Cherie says:

    This is the cutest new idea to “hatch” for awhile – hee hee. I love all the ideas but the carrots really caught my eye – probably because Easter is on the way and this would be fun to send to my nieces and nephews.

  • 693
    Bev R says:

    WOWie! Fantastic box! They are all amaaazing ideas, but for me the most riveting idea is the mini-cupcakes!
    You could make cupcakes or mini-brownies or muffins, or bars (all made in a mini-muffin tin). Imagine giving this to someone on their birthday with candles attached!
    What a fantastic idea!!

  • 694

    Pam Conner says:

    I absolutely love these boxes!!! An idea came to my mind to use these as birthday gifts, etc. for my scrapping/crafting friends. Inside the eggs you put brads, eyelets, flowers, beads/pearls, tiny spools of ribbons, etc. and decorate the boxes in brilliant colors and some neat fonts like, Tinker Toy, etc.!!! I know my friends would love these!!!

    Thanks so much for all the contests and inspiration!

  • 709

    These are just adorable! I’ll be ordering a bunch of these to use for a class I teach each month.
