Bunny Box - Another Easter Treat for You -

Isn't this just the cutest bunny box. My friend, Karen, another SU! demonstrator came over and shared this idea with myself and a few other demonstrators when we got together for a "Shoe Box Swap" and lunch at my house. It is really easy to put togehter and thought I'd share the idea with you all so that you had another idea for Easter - which by the way is only 17 days away!

So start with a piece of CS (Cardstock) 6"x6". Score it at 2" & 4" and then turn it and score again at 2" & 4". Fold on score lines.

Then Carefully cut 1 " away from the left and right hand middle sections.

Then using a ruler or paper trimmer, draw a diagonal line in each of the four corner squares. Then carefully with scissors - cut those corners off so that your 6"x6" piece looks like the picture below.

Then using red sticky tape, place strips down like in this picture. Then peel the red sticky tape from the left hand bottom portion, and adhere that to the middle small piece making sure that your pieces match up on the bottom so that your box will stand straight. Then peel the red sticky tape from the right side and overlap that on top of what you just did. Repeat on the other side, to form your box. (see picture below of how box looks after adhering the flaps)

Then cut a piece of CS 1"x7" , and a piece of DSP that matches your CS - 3/4"x7". Put adhesive/snail/glue on the back of the DSP (Designer Series Paper). Then adhere that to the middle of your CS for your handle for your basket.

Put red sticky tape at the bottom of each end of your handle no more than 1/2" up from the bottom, because you don't want it to show where your box flaps cross over, because this is the lowest area on your box. Then adhere handle to your box.

In this picture I forgot to adhere the handle for you to be able to see. But I did want to stick this picture in the tutorial so that you could see how the flaps of your box overlap each other, and you could see what I meant by the lowest point of your box. (where it comes to the V shape)

Then you will need the following for your actual bunny's bottom;
(1) Barely Banana Scallop Circle
(1) 1 3/8" Circle from Whisper White
(2) Small Ovals from Whisper White
(2) Small DSP Ovals Cut by hand a bit smaller so they layer nicely
(1) White Pom Pom
(1) piece of Ribbon to match your box. (I used 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon) in an 8" length

Assemble your bunnies bottom/backside, and attach to box. You could use red sticky tape, hot glue, or pop up glue dots.

This is a picture of how I made toes on the bunnies feet just using a Pretty In Pink Marker.

Then put everything together for this CUTE box. Add some treats to it for that someone special!

Happy Stamping,
