I have had a little bag of Easter candy hidden away for a friend for months. On many occasions I’ve resisted the temptation to eat that sweet, candy-coated egg-shaped goodness myself.

I wasn’t exactly sure when I’d give it to her, but I knew that chance summertime meetings would not be a good time since the candies would be a melted pile of goo if I just carried them around with me.

Today I learned that my friend was suffering a nasty summertime cold. Those are the worst. Summer – when you should be out playing in the sunshine, enjoying school-free days, and splashing in the pool – is not the time to be holed up at home with a cold.

I needed to run some errands near my friend’s house, so I decided this would be a good time to drop off the eggs. I was just going to hand her the candy bag, but then my little one napped a bit longer than expected so I took the opportunity to run up to my craft room and put together a little packaging.

Egg and Yolk card and magic can gift made by Jill Inks using Stampin' Up! products

The card and wrapping literally took 2 minutes. So easy to do, and yet so cute!

I put the baggie of candy in the upcycled tin can (directions here) and and wrapped a strip of DSP around it, securing the paper to the can with Sticky Strip. Then I punched an oval egg and split the egg in two by sticking it in my Pennant Builder Punch. The yolk is out of Summer Starfruit cardstock – it’s kind of a “rotten egg-y” color, so I thought it would work well for this card. I popped the egg up with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it a little more 3D-effect.

Inside the card I wrote (paraphrased) “Sorry you are feeling rotten. These candy eggs are guaranteed not to be! Feel better soon!”
