Bunny Treat Holder

This cute Bunny Treat Holder is perfect for Easter or Spring Treat or Small Gift Giving.  It is also really quick to make!  So get some Thick Whisper White card stock and some circle and oval Framelits or punches and make one for the people you love.
Bunny Treat Holder, Bunny Gift HolderSUPPLIES:
Marker:  Basic Black #1000082
Card Stock:  Thick Whisper White
Blushing Bride
Big Shot:  Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372
Adhesive:  Tear & Tape
Tombow Glue
Other:  Pencil or pen
Paper Trimmer with Scoring Blade #126889

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut and prepare your papers:
~two large circles from Thick Whisper White card stock.  I used the largest Circl Stitched Shapes Framelit.  Put both circles together on your Paper Trimmer and trim off 1/2″  This will give you a flat bottom.
~Two Thick Whisper White ovals the size you want for your Bunny Ears.  I used the second smallest Stitched Shapes Oval Framelit.
~Two Blushing Bride ovals just smaller than your Bunny Ears.  I used the smallest Stitched Shapes Oval Framelit.
~Decide how wide you want your Bunny Treat Holder to be.  Mine is 1″ wide.  Decide how wide you want the tabs to be.  Mine is 3/8″.  Double this measurement – 3/4″.  So I cut a 1-3/4″ x 8-1/2″ piece to go between the large circles.  Score along each 8-1/2″ side at 3/8″ so you have two long tabs.  Put the Tear & Tape on the tabs now.  Leave the Tape backing on.  Fold both Scored Tabs with your Bone Folder.  This is your Bunny Width Strip.
Bunny Treat Holder-side vid2.  Prepare & Assemble.
~Choose one of your Circles to be the front.  Draw a Bunny Face on it.  Don’t worry if it is not perfect.  It will give you bunny character and make it even cuter!
~If desired you can add a Bunny Tail to the other circle with a small punched circle or a pom pom.
~Glue a Pink Oval to a Whisper White Oval.  Repeat with the next set.
Bunny Width Strip
~Find the center of your Bunny Width Strip either by measuring and marking the tabs at 4-1/4″ or by making light fold marks on the tabs.
~Hold the flat part of your Bunny Face circle next to the center of your Bunny Width Strip.  Try to make the Bunny Face even on both sides of the center mark.  Mark both the tabs where the outside of the Bunny Face is.  I drew a straight line on the tabs.  DO NOT cut between these lines!!
~Now cut out “V” shapes every 3/8″ to 1/2″ along both tabs leaving the part you marked in the center flat.  These “V” shapes will help eliminate bulk and make it easier to attach to your Bunny Face and Back.
Assembly
~Now pull off the Tape Backing.  Have your Tabs folded up with the Adhesive on the outside.
Attach your Bunny Front and Back to the center of each tab with the part you want showing on the facing outward and the plain sides facing the Bunny Width Strip.
~Decide how far up you want the Bunny Width Strip to go on each side of the Bunny Face and Back.
~ Attach one side of the Tab to both sides of either the Bunny Face or Back up as high as you want.  Trim off the excess on both sides.  Repeat with the the other Bunny Face or Back.
~Glue the Bunny Ears inside the Bunny Back.  I put Tombow Glue on about 1/4″ from the bottom of the Bunny Ear and attached it close to the Bunny Width Strip.
~Fill with Treats or a small gift.

Adhesives:  Foam Adhesive Strips #141825
Tombow Glue + Sponge Wedge + Silicone Craft Sheet
Glue Dots

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Flirty Flamingo card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Choose the two Framelits you will use as your cut out and frame.
3.  Cut your Card front pieces:
~Whisper White at 4″ x 5-1/4″.
~Patterned Paper at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Cut out the window using the smaller Framelit.
~Window Sheet at 3-3/4″ x 5″
~Flirty Flamingo Window Frame:  Put both Framelits on the card stock on your Big Shot Platform.  Make sure the card stock showing between them is even.  Cut.
~Stamp your Ice Cream with Flirty Flamingo ink on Whisper White card stock with the solid Ice Cream stamps.  Stamp the Ice Cream layers with Watermelon Wonder ink on the solid Ice Cream piece.  Cut out with the coordinating Ice Cream Framelit.
~Cut out both the solid and the detailed Thinlit Ice Cream cone pieces from Crumb Cake card stock.  Attach together with Tombow Glue and sponge wedge on your Silicone Craft Sheet.  Glue the Ice Cream to the top.
~Stamp Happiest Birthday or other words in Watermelon Wonder ink on a Whisper White card stock strip.  Punch the end with the Banner Triple Punch.
4.  Assemble Card Front.
~Glue the Flirty Flamingo Frame around the Window on your patterned paper using Tombow Glue because it has a little wiggle room so you can use your fingers in the window hole to line up both pieces.
~Glue the Window Sheet on the back of the card front.  You just need glue around the edges of the Window Sheet.
~Attach the Happiest Birthday Banner with the adhesive of your choice.
~Attach the Ice Cream Cone with half Stampin’ Dimensionals
5.  Make the Shaker Card.
~Put your Foam Adhesive strips on the back of your card front within about 1/4″ from the window cut-out making sure there are no small gaps for your Sprinkles to escape through.  Rub the part of the Foam Adhesive Strip that is in the center where the sprinkles will be with your Embossing Buddy to remove all the sticky from the sides.  This will help prevent your Sprinkles from sticking to the Foam.  If you look closely, you can see I forgot this step.
~Also put some Foam Adhesive Strips about 1/4″ from the edge of the back side of the card front.
~Optional: Line up the Whisper White 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece with the completed card front to get an idea of where to place some of the Sprinkles with Glue Dots.   Attach a few Sprinkles on the Whisper White piece with Glue Dots.  Cut away the excess Glue Dot that sticks out beyone the Sprinkle if you want a smaller glob of Sprinkles to collect on the Glue Dot.  I just left the Glue Dot as is of all but one of the added Sprinkles.
~Put the desired amount of Sprinkles on the back of the card front inside the Foam Window.  Match up the sides of the Whisper White piece and the card front and attach.
~Attach your Shaker card front to your card base.
6.  Yippee!  You are finished!

I used some Gold Baker’s Twine from the Holiday Catalog.  Choose what you want.
Adhesives:  Tear & Tape
Glue Dots
SNAIL

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut out two of the Popcorn Box Thinlits with your Big Shot from Sweet Sugarplum card stock.  Use the Scallop Edgelit included to cut the top part of your box pieces so the top of your box will be scalloped.  Also cut out a small tag from Sweet Sugarplum card stock.
2.  Fold all the score lines on the box pieces.  Stamp in Rich Razzleberry ink if desired.
3.  Put Tear & Tape on the
~side tabs.  Attach the two Box pieces together at the side tabs.  Decide which part of the box will be the front.  The bottom flap attached to the front will be attached last.
~Bottom Side Flaps: Along the score lines and edges on the outside of the box
~Bottom Back Flap needs no adhesive added.
~Bottom Front Flap:  Along the edge on the inside of the box.
4.  Now fold in the Bottom Flaps in this order:  sides, back, front.  Yea! You have finished your Box! Now to decorate it.
5.  Cut about 20″ of ribbon.  This should give you enough to go around the box and make a nice size bow.  Fold the ribbon in half and put SNAIL adhesive directly on the ribbon on the 4″ or so on each side of the ribbon.  Now attach the ribbon to the box starting with the center of the ribbon on the back center of your box.  Place the ribbon gently in place in case you need to readjust it.  Make sure the adhesive is on the ribbon as it touches the box corners in the front.  Now tie your bow.
6.  Stamp your tag in Rich Razzleberry ink.  I also sponged the edges in the Rich Razzleberry ink.  Punch a hole in the tag if desired or just attach it under the ribbon with a couple of glue dots.  If you punched a hole, thread the Baker’s Twine through the hole and tie it around the knot in your bow.
7.  Fill with treats or a small gift.

Enjoy surprising your family and friends with treats in Popcorn boxes.  If the box is for a guy, just leave off the ribbon.
