Spring Treat Box

Here is a sweet treat for the bunnies in your life this Springtime!

Start by making a basic box from plain cardstock.  Cut a 12″x12″ sheet to 10.5″x10.5″, score on all 4 sides at 3.75″.  Cut at the four corners, fold into the box shape and adhere.

Now, cut one egg shape of around 7″ from light cream cardstock, and a second reduced by half an inch from Spectrum Noir Aqua Watercolour cardstock.  (I used an egg shape outline, and cut using my Silhouette Cameo.)

Create a watercolour effect background on the smaller egg shape with Spectrum Noir Aqua watercolour markers, and add water with a brush.

Using DecoArt Media Modeling Paste, apply some flowers on the bottom left of the egg with a stencil, then use Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers to add a little bling to the petals.  (Note how the modeling paste will pick up the colour of the watercolour ink underneath.)

My Bunny friend is a character named BeBunni from Crafter’s Companion, that I have coloured with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  Cut out the coloured image and apply to the egg background as the focal point.  A lacy edge die from Crafter’s Companion Rustic Cottage collection, a printed and matted sentiment, and a die cut butterfly completes the composition.

Adhere the decorated egg shape to the larger egg and highlight the edges and lacy die cut with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Marker clear overlay.  (I love this stuff!)

To finish, adhere the egg shape to the box, colour the edges of the box and add a few die cuts from the Rustic Cottage paper collection.  Fill the box with some decorative coloured grass, and not forgetting some chocolate mini eggs.  Happy Spring everyone!
