Well, I finally gave in to my inner squirrel and stashed one away. It wasn't in the stash for long (thank goodness!) before I created this little bunny box with it. I'm about 80% liking this box. I know I can do better, so plan on seeing more experimentation with this surface...I do eat one little cheese wedge a day, so I can build up a stash pretty quickly!
A Couple Details:
- Tissue tape makes dealing with oddly shaped edges soooo much simplier! I applied a couple of layers...one wrapping the bottom edge and one wrapping the top edge for both the top and bottom of the box.
- My Coluzzle (you could also use an electronic cutting machine) made quick work of cutting circles to cover the top and bottom.
- The adorable bunny image is from The Graphics Fairy. I colored him with Distress Inks and a water pen, then added several layers of UTEE to give him some thickness.
- Some Tim Holtz adornments make our bunny royal and heavenly (it is an Easter box). And layered flowers, seam binding, buttons, and an edging of Liquid Pearls finish things off.
