Punch Bunny – Take 2

Sorry I was MIA yesterday, I had a fight with the 24 hour flu bug and it won!  It made me miss travelling to do a class a couple hours away AND my hair appointment yesterday!  Bummer.  Good news is that I slept most of yesterday and last night, so I feel MUCH better!  I haven’t been sick like that for quite a while.

I made up several of these Punch Bunny candy boxes to take to a stamping retreat to sell a couple weeks ago.  I just have two left.  Since this was a pretty small group of stampers and scrapbookers, I was pleased! 

EDIT:  These have been SOLD.   Thanks to those that inquired!  NOTE:  I have 70 test tubes left from a bulk buy.  If you are interested, please email me.  Cost is 30 cents each, plus shipping to you…min of 10.  (I will give preference to someone who wants them all.)  The smaller jelly beans fit great, or nerds or plain M&Ms…anything small.  I take Paypal (no credit cards).

I started with the Stampin’ Up! Bigz XL die, Box #2 cut from the Sale-A-Bration Designer Paper Delicate Dots and made the box.  On the lid, I punched two 3/4" circles and then put the box together.  I added a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock (stamped in So Saffron with a retired egg design…the new wheel would be perfect, but I didn’t have it when I made these!) for the back (3 5/8 x 5 1/2) and adhered it to the inside wall of the box.  The front I decorated with my Punch Bunny (1 3/8 and 1" circles for body, Small Oval for ears) punched from Going Gray and shaded with Going Gray ink around the edges.  The tail is one of the Trio Flowers punch from Whisper White.  The eggs were punched from Patterns Designer Paper in Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink and Lavendar Lace (I think this was a retired paper pack we carried at one time) with the small oval punch and cut in half.  I cut a strip of Certainly Celery and used my scissors to make cuts for the "grass".  Finally, I wrapped some Celery Twil Ribbon (another Sale-A-Bration bundle selection) around the back and the test tubes to hold them in place.  (I placed a mini glue dot on the bottom of the test tube when I placed it in the box, too, to help hold them.)  Easter Wishes was stamped with Basic Gray on Very Vanilla, punched with the 1-1/4 circle, layered on Certainly Celery 1 3/8 circle and finaly layered on So Saffron Scallop Circle punch.  I used the 1/8 circle punch for the hole to tie it with the ribbon.

Hope you enjoy this little treat box!
