Altered Easter egg box

I altered an Easter egg box (I bought this for mum for Sunday). This is the original:

I opened out the box to make a template:

and used the template the cut around some Easter wrapping paper:

I then stuck the wrapping paper on to the original box template and did it up again, adding a few flowers (originally from Early Learning - a long while ago).
