Bunny Box by Sue K.

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Sue K. has made a gorgeous Bunny Box to share today. Its adorable, I hope you enjoy it. 



Tutorial:
Use Aqua cardstock for the base of the box.



 Take the Crop-o-dile big bite and punch two 1/8” holes about 2” from the top on the two smaller sections.  This will be where the handle will be.
Fold at each score line, secure the sides with strong double sided tape.  Fold in 2 opposite flaps on the bottom, securing with double sided tape, then fold in the remaining 2, secure with tape.

Cut Echo park patterned paper, 12” x 2”, use the tape runner around both the top and bottom edge, wrap around the bottom of the box.

Cut some Yellow Echo Park paper, fussy cut around the pattern, using the tape runner, secure around the box as pictured
Use Robin’s Egg cardstock



Secure the lid with squares of double sided tape, attach a 2 ½” x 3” piece of patterned paper to the top of the box.
For the handle, cut Aqua cardstock, 12” x 1.5”, use the border punch to decorate each side
Attach the handle to the box with some large split pins.
Cover 2 large buttons with glue, sprinkle with fairy dust glitter.  When dry thread through some ‘happy go lucky’ twine, tie the ends in a bow.  Attach onto of the split pin with some Helmar 450 glue.

 Using SB smooth white and robin’s egg cardstock, cut out the pieces as pictured


For the paws, take the 2 half ovals and scallop with a border punch. 
Using a 0.3 copic multi liner, draw in all the features, mouth, eyelashes, etc
Sponge all the edges with ink, assemble with a mix of double sided tape and foam dots.  Bend one of the ears over slightly
Attach the bunny to the box with foam dots, ensuring the lid will fit behind his ears.
Make a tail using Felt and the loopy bloom Die, secure the end with Helmar 450 glue and the same to attach it to the box.
Lastly use the bow easy, wrap the twine around repeatedly around 1 ½ “ prongs, wrap the end of the twine around the centre of the bow to secure.  Attach to the bunny with Helmar 450 glue.
Oops, nearly forgot, fill it up with yummy chocolate and enjoy the smile on a loved one’s face!
