THE EASTER BUNNY TREAT BOX                                                                                                                                                      

Here is an Easter Bunny Basket that I have made for one of my grandchildren.  I like to make different things for each grandchild for each holiday.  Hope they like it but for sure they will like the candy.   My hubby loves those little cupcakes that come in clear plastic box so I decide to clean up the plastic box and reuse it for this project.  

Cartridges:  Craft Room Basics, Flower Shoppe.
Other Items Used:  Glue, black beads for eyes (I used 2 darice paste-on Eyes and colored them with a black Sharpie Marker because I wanted the eyes to look a bit larger.  One 3-D Glue Zot (to make the nose stand out) and a flower brad to hold the flower together.  For the whiskers I just cut some very thin strips of purple card stock  Ruffle/ribbon around the bunny's neck.

You can get the cricut craft room file here.

The picture above is to let you know what each of the items in the cricut craft room file are for.  I inked up the edges on some parts of the bunny for more detail then I assembled the bunny.  I formed a L-shape piece of cardstock to glue to back of bunny head and to the top of the plastic box so the head would stand up.  I also glued the bunny feet to the front of the box. Of course don't forget the bunny tail (cotton tail) on the back of the box. 

Here is another version by just adding an oval shape for the body the same size as the head and add two paws.
