Today's post wraps up my Easter series of marbled Model Magic and I have to say that today's project is my favourite, mostly because of the colour scheme. Who doesn't love a good pink? If you're visiting family or friends and want to bring along a sweet surprise, these Easter boxes are more travel-friendly than open baskets.
You can go as simple or fancy as you like with these. I went the simple route, using a kraft paper box from Michael's. Just use a hot glue gun to attach your Model Magic shape onto the lid, and there you have it! I filled mine with Easter grass, candy, and some cute miniature toy bunnies and mushrooms.

Looking to add some interest to your place settings this Easter? Try using these marbled Easter shapes as place cards. Write names on each egg with a felt tip marker. The cookie cutters I used had the stripe built in (I'm pretty sure these cutters are older than me, so I haven't been able to source them) but I think they'd look just as cute without the stripe, with larger names in a bold cursive script.

Did you see my last DIY tutorial for making marbled Easter shapes? I love Crayola Model Magic for so many reasons - it's non-toxic, lightweight, affordable, and comes in lots of colours. Earlier on I shared how to use acrylic paint to marble white Model Magic; if you've done this and let it dry overnight then you're ready to make this springy garland. Over the next few days I'll be sharing a couple other ways I like using these Easter shapes. Click through to see more about how to make today's garland.
I've been on a marbling kick for the past little while so I've got a number of projects up my sleeve, but since Easter is quickly approaching let's start with these pastel spring shapes. Using this tutorial as a first step, there are a handful of fun ways to use these little guys. I'll be sharing a a few ideas over the next couple days, so stay tuned! But for now, I'll show you how to get started.
