EASTER BUNNY CHOCOLATE MINI EGG TREAT BOX


Thank you for joining us on our Crafty Cupcakes Blog Hop! We're showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the Stampin' Up!® Spring/Summer and Annual Catalogues with the emphasis on SPRING. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!




Using Whisper White card stock (#106549), I punched out 2 circles with the 2" circle punch (#133782) and 6 oval shapes with the large oval punch (#119855).

I then used the owl builder punch (#118074) and punched out the heart in Pink Pirouette card stock (#116203) for the nose and the two middle sized circles in Basic Black (#121688) for the eyes.

Using a sponge dauber (#133773) and the Pink Pirouette classic stamp pad (#126956), I gently sponged some colour onto two of the oval shapes to make the ears and, with the same stamp pad and two more of the oval shapes, I used the eraser end of a pencil to stamp three little pink circles for the feet.

To make up the face, I adhered the ears to the back of one of the 2"circles and glued the second circle on top to give a smoother finish and add some stability.  I then added the nose and eyes and, using a black fine liner pen, drew on whiskers and eyelashes.  A white gel pen added a glint to the eyes.

The gift box was made from a 6" x 8½" piece of Whisper White card stock stamped with little flowers from the Butterfly Basics stamp set (#137154) and So Saffron Classic Stamp Pad (#126957).

With the card stock in the portrait position, I scored at 2" and 4" then rotated the card 90 degrees clockwise (landscape) and scored at 2", 4", 6" and 8".

I turned the card back 90 degrees anti-clockwise (portrait) and at the 1½" mark, scored down to the 3rd scoreline and repeated at the 4½" mark.  Turning the card 180 degrees, this time I just scored down to the 1st scoreline from the 1½" and 4½" marks.  

The shaded areas (Fig 1) were cut away and then I cut along the ½" wide sections and mitred the edges (Fig 2).  All score lines were burnished and sticky strip added to the areas shown (Fig 3).



Fig 1                                                 Fig 2                                                   Fig 3


Once assembled, I adhered the head to the rear of the box, stuck the two feet on the front and using the remaining two oval pieces, I curved them slightly using my bone folder and glued one end of each piece to the back of the box and the other end to the side to look like the bunny is holding the present.

To finish, I added a bow to the top of the box made using the bow builder punch (#137414) and So Saffron card stock (#126957).
