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.

Easter Basket & CarrotEaster Basket CarrotSUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Suite Sayings  Wood # 140709, Clear #140712
Ink: Blackberry Bliss
Card Stock:  Blackberry Bliss
Farmer’s Market Designer Series Paper #138448
Tangelo Twist
Cucumber Crush
Whisper White
Big Shot:  Berry Basket Bigz L Die #137366
Pyramid Pals Thinlits Dies #140618

Other:  Antique Brads  #117273
Honeycomb Embellishments  #140566
Tombow Glue
Tear & Tape Adhesive
Glue Dots

BASKET INSTRUCTIONS:
Watch this Video for basic instructions on putting the Basket together.
1.
 Cut your Blackberry Bliss at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and Farmer’s Market Designer Series Paper the same or just cut in half for a 6″ x 12″ paper.
2.  Cut your papers using your Big Shot and the Berry Basket Die.  You can cut two sheets of card stock at once, but only one sheet of Designer Series Paper at a time as the score lines will tear if you do two sheets.
3.  Glue the Blackberry Bliss and Farmers Market pieces together for the Berry Basket main parts and the handle.  Fold the score lines on the Berry Basket Parts.  Decide if you want the patterned paper on the outside or the solid color on the outside.  Lay the two Berry Basket parts together and put Tombow Glue or Tear & Tape to attach the bottom Basket Parts together.
4.  Put Tear & Tape Adhesive on the outside top edges of each Berry Basket Side.  Take the two Scallop Edge pieces.  Fold on the score lines.  Glue the small tabs to the edge of the other Scallop Edge piece to form a square.  Attach each Scallop side to a Basket side centering the Basket side.  Repeat on all four sides.
4a.  This is the way I should have done it.  Glue together a Blackberry Bliss and Farmers Market Straight Piece for the Handle.  Punch a 1/8″ Circle in the center of two opposite sides and each end of the Handle.  Attach to the Basket with the Antique Brads.
5.  If desired, use the Patterned Scallop Pieces around the inside top of the Basket to cover the Brads.
6.  Stamp the Easter Blessings in Blackberry Bliss ink on Whisper White card stock.  Cut out with the Deco Label Framelit leaving some space above your Easter Blessings.  Attach a Honeycomb Embellishment to the top of your Easter greeting with Glue Dots.  Attach the Deco Label with to the front of your basket with either Fast Fuse, Tear & Tape, or Tombow Glue making sure the adhesive is only on the part attaching to the basket.
7.  Fill with Easter Grass and goodies.

CARROT INSTRUCTIONS:
Pyramid Pals CarrotCarrot Top
1.  Cut out two Pyramid shapes from Tangelo Twist card stock.  Fold all score lines the same way for each piece.  Rotate the pieces over the bottom square so the plain triangles are opposite each other and the triangles with tabs are across from each other.  I found it easier to use Tombow Glue to glue the tabs behind the plain triangles.  Press firmly on the sides to make sure they stick together.
2.  Cut a 2″ square of Cucumber Crush card stock.  Add some Tear & Tape Adhesive along one edge.  This will be the bottom.  Use your Fringe Scissors to cut down to the Tear & Tape, but not past it.  Cut into 1/2″ pieces.  Attach to the center of your Carrot Top.
3.  Add to your Easter Basket.

Happy Easter!

M&M Bunny

Make this fun Candy Bunny with the 1″ x 8″ cello bag and 24 M&Ms.  Add some Baker’s Twine and a Circle Punch face for a quick and easy Bunny Treat.
M&M Easter Bunny

SUPPLIES:
Markers:  Basic Black
Blushing Bride
Card Stock:  Baked Brown Sugar
Punch:  1-3/8″ Circle Punch  #119860
Other:  1″ x 8″ Cellophane Bag #124134
Strawberry Slush Thick Baker’s Twine  #135637
24 M&Ms in your choice of color(s) from your local store
1″ x 10″ piece of Printer Paper scored down the middle at 1/2″ x 10″.

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Fold your Printer Paper in half and insert into the 1″ x 8″ Cello Bag.  This will make your M&Ms go in quickly and easily if you insert them inside the folded paper.  Try to keep them all going the same direction and close the top carefully over the top M&M.  Tight, but not super tight.
2.  Get your Baker’s Twine ready.  I probably used 6-8″.  I cut it after I had tied the Bow.  Count 5 M&Ms from each end and place these ends next to each other.  These will be the Bunny Ears.  Tie your Baker’s Twine between the 5th and 6th M&Ms on each end.  Tie tightly so the Bunny Ears separate some.  I tied a knot, then a bow.
3.  Punch your 1-3/8″ Baked Brown Sugar Circle.  Draw on the Face with Markers:  Eyes with Basic Black, Nose with Blushing Bride, Mouth and whiskers with Basic Black fine tip.
4.  Round out the M&Ms under the ears.  Attach your Bunny Face with Glue Dots.
5.  Make this quick Bunny Treat for your family and friends.

Happy Easter!

Bunny Treat Box

This Tiny Treat Box decorated with a Punch Art Bunny is ready for Easter or a Spring Treat or small gift.  It is pretty quick to make.  Just two punches and two Markers to make it.  Yes, I did draw on the face.  You can use the Owl Punch for eyes if you want or use googly eyes.  It doesn’t have to be perfect.  You can even let the children draw the face themselves.  It will be cute whoever draws it!
Bunny Box

SUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes  Wood #128748, Clear #127802
And Many More  Wood #134273,  Clear #134276

Large Oval  #119855
Other:  Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon #114319
Silver Ribbon  #132137
Fast Fuse
Glue Dots

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Punch one 1-3/4″ Circle and two Large Ovals from Whisper White card stock.
2.  Color the pink parts of the Large Oval ears with your Blushing Bride Marker.
3.  Draw the eyes with your Basic Black Marker.  Draw your triangle nose with your Blushing Bride Marker.  Now draw you mouth and whiskers with the fine tip of your Basic Black Marker.
4.  Put Glue Dots on the bottom front of each ear and attach to the back of your Bunny Head.  If desired, tie a small bow with Silver Ribbon (or another color) and attach to your Bunny as a Bow Tie.
5.  Stamp the Sentiments on the top flap of your Tiny Treat Box.
6.  Measure 6″ of Organza Ribbon cutting the ends at an angle if desired.  Attach to your Tiny Treat Box sides and back with Fast Fuse.  I did fold my box to make sure which side was the front.  It is easier to put the Ribbon on the box when it is flat.
7.  Since the Bunny Head will make it hard to open your box, fold a 3″ piece of Organza Ribbon in half and staple to the lid flap of your box.
8.  Assemble your box:  The flap with the “U”, the sides, then tuck in the long flap.  Flatten from the inside if necessary.  You can put your treats or small gift in now.
9.  Now use Fast Fuse or Glue Dots to attach your Bunny to the front of your Tiny Treat Box.

Happy Easter!

3.  Stamp your flower image on Whisper White card stock with black ink.  NOTE:  Use Memento Black ink with Photopolymer stamps.  StayzOn will permanently make them black.  Color the flowers with Markers.  Due to the shading in the stamps only simple coloring is needed to make the flower look great!
4.  Choose the desired Oval Framelit to cut out your flower.  Yes, I cut off part of the stem.  Choose the next larger Oval Framelit and use it to cut your Crisp Cantaloupe mat.  Put Dimensionals on the back of both Ovals and layer them together.
5.  Stamp Happy Easter in Black ink on Whisper White card stock.  Punch out with the Word Window Punch.  Punch the mat from Crisp Cantaloupe card stock using the Modern Label Punch.  Attach your sentiment with Fast Fuse or SNAIL Adhesive.  Put Dimensionals on the back.  I usually use three half Dimensionals on the back of the Modern Label piece.
6.  Lay out your Ovals and sentiment in the desired positions and then attach them.
7.  Happy Easter!

2.  Cut your Whisper White card stock at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Use the Finishing Touch Edgelits on the long side of the card stock leaving about 1/4″ from the edge.  When cutting the second edge just move the Edgelit to the other side of the card stock.  We did need to use Post it Notes to hold it in place even with the Magnetic Platform.
3.  Stamp your Border Flowers with Memento Black ink along both the Finishing Touches Borders you just cut.  Color the flowers, leaves and stems with Markers.
4.  Stamp your Flower with Daffodil Delight.  We needed the Stampin’ Pierce Mat to get a good image with the Photopolymer stamp.  Punch out with the Scallop Punch.  Cut between every other petal down about halfway.  Now curl with your Bone Folder.  Then place in the palm of your hand and round your palm to help the petals for a nice shape.  I know this last part sounds weird, but it does help the flower look better.  Use Glue Dots to attach to the center of your card front.
5.  Use 2-3 Glue Dots on the back of the Something Borrowed embellishment and attach it to the center of your flower.
6.  You now have a bright, happy card you can use for any occasion.

Happy Flower Card Making!
