Easter Treat Tag Topper Box

This is a box I found on Pinterest last week.  I give credit to Michelle Last for this creation.  This was part of my March Club and class.  I think everyone had fun making it.

2015-03-2014.06.11Isn’t he cute?  It was very quick (like a bunny) to put together.  Just gather all your tools first to save time.  I made mine from a 6 1/2″ x 8 1/4″ piece of Naturals White cardstock.  I used  one of the pinks from the Subtles DSP stack for the inside of the ears and nose.  So Saffron was the color for the daffodil with a Wild Wasabi stem.

You will score along the long edge of the Naturals White cardstock at 0.5″, 1.5″, 5.5″ and 6.5″.  On the short edge, score at 2″, 3″, 5″ and 6″.  You are to cut away the 4 scored boxes formed in each corner.

2015-03-2014.19.32You will insert the long, 2″ wide section all the way into the Scallop Tag Topper Punch as shown.  Punch.

 

 

 

2015-03-2014.21.12Fold in on all score lines.  Use Fast Fuse or Sticky Strip on the long, narrow side to seal the box together.

I also permanently sealed the bottom flap of the box shut.

I used THIN clear velcro buttons from Walmart to close the Tag Topper flap for easy access.

The cute little nose is made with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  Whiskers are added with the black Project Life Journaling pen.

The Basic Black eyes are from the medium circles from the Owl Builder punch.  After adhering with glue dots, I added highlights to the eyes with the Stampin’ Chalk Marker.

2015-03-2014.06.52You will punch 4 large ovals from the Naturals White cardstock for arms and ears.  I did bend the ears a bit, long-ways, to give them some shape before adding the smaller DSP pink oval (which can be made with a retired oval punch or trimming down the large oval).  I used liquid tombow glue to adhere the ears and arms (which I only glued to the sides of the box).

The daffodil is punched with the flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and Petite Petals Punch.  I used my fringe scissors to cut into a piece of Wild Wasabi cardstock to make stems (I only needed one for each box … you might want to make a whole bouquet!)  I put the flower together with glue dots.  Use the Word Window punch to punch out “Happy Easter” from “Teeny Tiny Wishes” and shorten it up to fit nicely.  Just tie a simple bow from bakers twine, adhering with a balled up glue dot.  Glue dot the assembled flower into his arms.

Add a Very Vintage Button, threaded with some Blushing Bride Baker’s Twine (and tied in a bow), with 3 glue dots to his backside!  Every bunny needs a tail!

Don’t forget to add a bag of chocolate treats inside!
