    Hello I Heart Naptime readers! My name is Tauni. I have a blog where I share fun gift and entertaining ideas and I run a conference for craft and DIY bloggers called Snap. I am so excited to be joining you with a fun summer project – watercolor fruit treat boxes.

    This is such a simple project, it’s one you could even have your kids pitch in and help out on.

    Watercolor Fruit Treat Boxes

    The supplies needed for this project are relatively inexpensive and you may even have them on hand.

    Supplies:

    • Paper plates (I like like the uncoated heavier plates for this project.)
    • Watercolors
    • Paint brush
    • Stapler (I used the We R Memory Keepers mini stapler with colored staples.)

    The first thing I did was fold my plate in half. It provided a bit of perspective and kept my watercolor aligned.

    Watercolor Treat Boxes by Tauni for iheartnaptime.comI unfolded the plate and started painting the edge of the plate to represent the skin of the citrus fruit. The plates I was using had a nice rim, which provided a great natural boundary for the color.

    Watercolor Treat Boxes by Tauni for iheartnaptime.comOnce I had gone all around the edge of the plate, I started on the middle of the fruit. I just eyeballed the plate and then outlined a few triangles.

    Watercolor Treat Boxes by Tauni for iheartnaptime.comNext up, I filled in the triangles with color.

    We’re using our treat boxes for a pool party so we filled it with all sorts of candy, but also included some sunscreen and lip balm. We kept things from moving around too much by including a little filler. The great thing about these treat boxes is you could really fill them with anything!
