Mini Easter Bunny Boxes

image

I was inspired by an amazing diorama on Kittie Kraft to make these sweet little treats for Easter. As I was mass-producing and mailing these, I made my scenes a little simpler but you can go as detailed as you like.

I die-cut a small gable box as my base (specifically the Sizzix Carry-all Bigz XL, but Papertrey Ink, Clear & Simple Stamps and I sure other companies have similar dies), but the Treat Bag or the Candy Box from Lawn Fawn would look totally cute decorated in this way as well.

I cut out and assembled my boxes before decorating, using different pastel shades of 12 x 12″ Bazzil paper. I found that Sookwang tape (aka Scor-Tape) was the best adhesive for assembling these boxes: no mess and holds tight!

Next, I got to die cutting: bunnies, grass, flowers, eggs, butterflies and birds.  I used dies from Impression Obsession, Lawn Fawn, and a tiny EK success punch for the eggs.

Glitter paper made for sparkly chocolate bunnies. Patterened paper became already-decorated easter eggs.

I glued the components of each scene onto the sides of the boxes, and trimmed any overhanging grass or leaves.  I found that Glossy Accents held well, and even the tiny flowers stayed on through the mail. For tiny pieces, I applied the glue with a toothpick.

The large tags were cut from the Lawn Fawn Tag You’re It die, and attached with vintage seam binding. The stamp is from my LSS Paper Tales.

Dies Used:
Impression Obsession: Rabbit set, Stems & leaves, Tiny flowers, Small bird set, Butterfly set, Grass border, Hollyhocks, Tall grass
Lawn Fawn: Grassy border
