Last year at one of my downline meetings, Donna brought this adorable Easter Bunny box for us to make. I got most of the parts sponged and the little pieces glued on, but I didn't finish it until now.
Isn't she cute? I don't know where Donna got the original instructions, all I know is that it was created by Terri Ransom.
You can click on the photos to see a larger view. All of the Whisper White cardstock (except for the whiskers and the box) were sponged with Going Grey ink. All of the Pretty in Pink cardstock was sponged with Pretty in Pink ink. I used a Basic Black Marker to add the little dots on her cheeks and to draw in her mouth. I also added a few highlights with a White Gel Pen.
Here's a list of all of the punches and dies that were used.
- Bunny: Top Note Die
- Ears (both parts): Build a Flower Set #2 Sizzlets
- Eyes: 1/2" Circle Punch
- Cheeks: 1" Circle Punch
- Nose: Small Heart Punch
- Feet: Large Oval Punch
- Large Pad on Feet: 3/4" Circle Punch
- Small Pads on Feet: Tulipe Big Shot Die
- Tail: Boho Blossoms Punch
The whiskers are thin scraps of cardstock held in place with a glue dot.
My daughter thinks I should have used a cotton ball or something with more dimension for the tail, but I was trying to stick with the Stampin' Up! punches and dies.
The box is a piece of 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" cardstock. With the 8 1/2" side going across the top, score at 3 1/2" and 5". With the 4 1/2" side going across the top, score it at 1" and 3 1/2". Cut on the four small score lines and use Sticky Strip to form it into a box. Add sticky strip to the front and back of the box and adhere it to the Top Note Die bunny pieces.
Fill the bunny with chocolate and you have a cute gift to give away this Easter/spring. I think I covered all of the directions, but if I left anything out or you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks for stopping by!
