|Family Easter cards and Ben's Easter Basket.|
The basket is made from four (4) Scallop Envelope BigZ 113462 to give me a square sizable box. Simply stick the side flaps of each envelope to the next, until you have four (4) in a line. You will need to use Sticky Strip 104294 to ensure the basket stays together. Then make a box, with the flaps on the inside of the box and tape together the fourth side. The bottom flaps can be folded in which ever way you like, however I am a symmetrical person so I folded in the opposites and used sticky strip to ensure the basket bottom would hold.

|The Crumb Cake seam binding is crisscrossed over the length of the handle to add texture and break the blue|
To make the rabbit you will need the following punches
119850 1 3/4 Circle punch
118074 Owl Builder punch
119855 Large Oval punch
120908 Small Oval punch
117193 Small Heart punch
Punch Art HINT and TIP - Use a paper piercer, tooth pick or similar to move smaller pieces into place and to dot glue onto smaller pieces.
- I used the small oval punch for the cheeks, and drew on the whiskers and dots (what do you call those)
- Owl punch's large circle for the nose,
- Owl punch circles for the eyes (drew the pupils on, putting those on was hard enough)
- Large Oval punch for the ears and cut the pink down to fit in the ear (how I miss that retired oval punch that fits inside ever so neatly!).
- The paws were made with the heart punch and medium circle from the Owl Builder punch
The feet/back paws were made from the Large Oval; the pads from the small oval and medium circle from the Owl Builder punch. The greeting is from Every Bunny (W124968 / C122707) and stamped in Early Expresso which is also used to sponge the Modern Label 119849 punch out.
|I very lightly sponged the rabbit with Pink Pirouette and Chocolate Chip. I did this to soften and dirty up the edges of the sharp white punch-outs.|
There is a bit of work in this little basket, I cannot wait to watch Ben fill it with his Lindt dark chocolate eggs...(the only chocolate he can have but in VERY small quantities) we will just have to monitor the consumption of said eggs LOL, I'm not up for several sleepless nights due to his indulgence!
Happy Easter to all of my precious friends and valued customers. I hope you have a wonderful and safe break.
