Easter sweet box

After all my chores yesterday, I sat down & made this Easter sweet box, it just evolved as I had no real plan when I started, other than to make anything but a card! I started by making 4 little boxes, without lids & stuck them together to form a square & then thought ahh I will make a drawer card.
I decorated them to match the outside of the box. The papers are unknown, MS Daisy punch used around the edge of the base

On the top I used Hello Tilda & coloured with Promarkers & mounted it onto a Labels Nestie. The pinkish card, I coloured with Promarkers to get as good a match as I could to the papers.
Flowers from my stash. Butterfly is also a MS punch, whih I have coloured with Gel Pens & a little Glitter Glue.
Magnolia Doohickey die is the tag, on which I have hand written Easter & attached with a brad. Ribbon also from stash.

My intention is to fill it with Mini eggs & give as an Easter present. I am entering it into these challenges
