Altered Easter Peeps Box

Hello my Peeps!
I know, but I could not resist.
Well when would I ever get to say that?
Today I bring you crafting and snacking!
Do you like PEEPS?  I have to admit I do not! I gave mine away to make this project.
I am sure you can find someone who will help you out and eat them :)
I used a small package. 

Here is a Vintage Post Card you can use.

It was the perfect size for the PEEP box.
I printed 4 on my cardstock. I made 2 boxes.
You will only need 2 postcards per ALTERED BOX.

Carefully cut your background piece.
Save the rest of the postcard for your first layer.
Use white glue to attach to box.

I used these colors below to blend into the background, top and side.

All printers are different try to match your postcard.

You can paint the white area on the box behind the top chick.
Your first 3 D layer should cover that area.

Used a straight edge to fold up 1/4'' at the bottom of postcard.
Add a few foam dots. 
Put glue only on that lower edge.
Set in front of background to give a 3D appearance.
 Cut the next layer 2 chicks and the nest.
Cut out the standing chick body ( no legs )
Cut out the egg shell.

Add foam dots to the back side.

These pieces will be the next layer.

You can add other embellishments.
I added a small bit of Spanish Moss and small cloth flowers.
On the second box,
I added some Vintage Baby Rick Rack to the edges.
I always pick these up thrifting when I find them!


Put it in my cubbie box -along with some other SPRING d├ęcor.
 Spring is coming and I can't wait!
I hope you have an awesome week- 
Thank you for visiting!

  1. OMG . . . I LOVE this idea! I don't like to eat Peeps either but I have a collection of vintage Easter postcards that will be perfect for this. These would not only be fun to display but would also make perfect little hostess gifts for Easter. Thanks do much for sharing! Happy St. Pat's Day! ~Cheryl

      Thank you so much! I love your idea to color copy your
      own postcard collection. These would be sweet little gifts. I appreciate your kind comment :) xo Lisa S

  2. Well how cute is that! Love it!

  3. So cute! I don't like Peeps either but this is a great improvement over them! Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. This is absolutely adorable, Lisa! And I love that teeny, vintage rick rack whenever I can scoop some up, too! I agree with you...the Peep box is much more desirable than what's inside!

      Thank you so much. I love Rick Rack. I kind of felt bad opening the package, but thought what am I saving it for if not to use :) xo Lisa S

  5. What a gorgeous idea. We like Peeps at our house, SO, especially. I so want to try this. Thank you!

      Thank you so much! I knew someone would admit to loving Peeps! I brought them to work and they disappeared. I hope you do make a shadowbox. Let me know- xo Lisa S

  10. What a cute idea! My husband loves stale Peeps (I know, gross...). Any way, I used to buy Peeps a few weeks ahead of Easter and poke holes in the plastic so that they'd be stale by Easter. In the past few years, we've found that they don't go stale, even after months. (Another reason not to eat those yucky candies.) Anyway, I have a Peep container and I'd love to make this!

      Thank you so much! Your story made me laugh out loud.
      You are an awesome wife to make sure your sweetie gets his stale peeps!!! xo Lisa S
