DIY Marbled Easter Shapes - Gift Box

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.

DIY Marbled Easter Shapes - Table Setting

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.

DIY Marbled Easter Shapes - Garland

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.
