Big Shot Sizzix Scalop Bunny Box

Isn't she cute! I made a girl bunny since I only have guys around my house. One day in the future I will have a couple of "daughters". I can't wait! They are so sweet and the Lord has provided two of our sons wonderful godly girlfriends. On to the box now.

There are instructions in a lot of places on the net for the scallop envelope box. I don't know the original designer of the box, but if it was you, please contact me and I will give you credit. Inspiration for this project was from the cute bunny box by Sandi MacIver here.

Start by die cutting 4 of the Stampin’ Up! Scallop Envelope dies with Green Galore cardstock. Cut off both of the tabs on two of the envelopes. Leave the other two envelope’s tabs intact. Run the envelopes back through the Big Shot with the Squares Texturz Impression Pad from Kit #4. That makes it look textured like a basket. Apply Sticky Strip to the side tabs. Making sure you have the correct side facing outward, align each side and adhere together. Fold the bottom flaps in by slipping one side of the flap under the next one and so on. I cut a 3 1/8” square of Green Galore to add to the bottom for extra strength. Glue this inside. Glue flaps down on outside.

Cut a 2 3/8” circle from Whisper White. Punch 4 large ovals from Whisper White and 4 small ovals from Pretty in Pink cardstock. Cut small strips of Certainly Celery for flower stems. Die cut 2 leaves using the Birds and Blooms Sizzlits die. Glue ears and feet on box and circle. Cut slim pieces of Whisper White for the whiskers. I used 5 strips. Put a glue dot where you want the nose. Arrange the whiskers on top of the glue dot. Put another glue dot on top of the whiskers. Punch heart from Heart to Heart Stampin’ Up! punch in Pretty in Pink. Adhere to top of whiskers with glue dot. Tie ½” Pretty in Pink grosgrain in bow. Use a glue dot to glue to bunny’s head. Punch ¼” circles of Basic Black. Glue eyes on to head. Glue bunny head to inside back box.
Die cut 3 large flowers, 5 small flowers, 2 leaves in Pretty in Pink and Barely Banana. Adhere around box.

Using 1 ¼” x 11” strip of Green Galore, punch both sides with Stampin’ Up! Eyelet Border Punch. To get eyelets to be equal on both sides, start one punching one side of the strip using one of the lines as a guild. Flip the strip over and punch using the same line. Make sure to start on the same end of the strip. Glue to inside of box lining up in bottom. Glue cotton ball on back for her tail. Fill with shredded paper or Easter grass and your choice of goodies. I always choose something I can’t eat so I am not tempted to snack. LOL Please leave your comments and questions.
