Happy Easter Bunny Treat Box

Stampin’ Up!’s Gift Box Punch Board was instrumental in creating my Easter project today.  And it’s so easy to use!  I began with a sheet of So Saffron 12″ x 12″ cardstock and just followed along on the instructions on the handy label to create a box that is 4″ x 4″ x 4″.

Here’s how I decorated:

  • I took my color scheme from the Confetti Celebration Designer Paper using two of the many pretty prints in this package to create the belly band.
  • The bow was a snap with another fabulous Stampin’ Up! tool – the Gift Bow Die used with the Big Shot.  Just cut a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ and use it with the die.  Curling the pieces with your Bone Folder will make them easier to shape.
  • The Happy Easter Bunny stamp set was the perfect stamped piece for the front of my box.  I was able to cut it as well as the border using the Oval Framelits Collection and Big Shot.
  • I colored the tiny pieces with my Stampin’ Write Markers in Melon Mambo, So Saffron and Bermuda Bay.  This is the perfect time to invest in the Many Marvelous Markers set of all 38 colors in our color collections.  At $109.95, you’re saving substantially by purchasing the markers all together, and this is the only way to get the handy carrying case, too.  And with Sale-A-Bration still going strong, you can choose TWO free Sale-A-Bration gifts for your marker purchase!
  • I wanted a really light look for the bunny, so I switched my coloring technique to using both the Pink Pirouette and Smoky Slate stamp pads along with my Aqua Painters.  This way, I could control the depth of color more and could be sure to get just a touch of color.

  • I just LOVE how this box unfolds!  And to put it together there’s absolutely no adhesive used!  Just slide the opposite sides together using the slits.  I made a “nest” using Bermuda Bay cardstock cut super thin, then wadded it up in a ball.  I think larger Cadbury Eggs would be the perfect thing for this box, but I only had small “eggs” of pastel peanut M&M’s on hand.

This box is a fairly substantial size, so you could put a lot of different things in it, even a small stuffed animal.  It’s the perfect trappings for a special Easter gift!

Oh, my gosh – I just noticed a coloring goof!  Did you catch it?  I’m done with all my photo taking and editing and it’s just too late to go back and redo.  So what to do but make a game of it!  Let me know in a comment below if you can find what I did wrong.  First one to answer and I’ll send you a little something in the mail!

UPDATE:  Here’s a video that Stampin’ Up! has prepared showing how easy it is to use the Gift Box Punch Board.

If I “undress” my box, it looks like this.  I love the way the box closes with the little sliding tab top.

But are you ready for the coolest part of it . . .  This beautiful box goes together without any adhesive whatsoever!  You’ll cut your cardstock to the size indicated on the chart that’s on the face of the Gift Box Punch Board then just follow the punching and scoring instructions.  It couldn’t be easier!  And what’s really great is that these boxes are big enough to really hold something!  Sometimes boxes are just too small and aren’t that useable, but this is not the case here!  My completed box measures 4″ x 4″ so I began with a piece of cardstock that was 12″ x 12″.

  • You’ll want to have the Gift Bow Die for the Big Shot to make cute bows for all your boxes!  This one’s cut with Soft Sky cardstock.
  • The tag’s created with the Merry Everything and Note Tag Punch – two products that are bundled together to save you 15%!  It’s stamped in Old Olive ink, and there’s a cute Soft Sky button from the Nordic Designer Buttons at the bottom.
  • There are lots of fun fibers tied to this tag – Soft Sky 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon, Real Red 3/8″ Satin Woven Ribbon, Olive and Vanilla and White & Tangerine Tango Two-Tone Trim (yes – I pulled them apart and used the Olive and White together!) and White Baker’s Twine.
  • Did you notice the cute tone-on-tone stamping on the bottom of the box?  That comes from Cheerful Tags stamp set found in the Holiday Catalog.
