Someone loves Easter!

Hello Crafty friends,

Today I was looking through some of my Silhouette files and spotted one that I've been wanting to cut for ages - its the 3D Bunny Purse Box by Lori Whitlock.

I love Easter time and finally decided to create this box today.

I chose my pink papers from my stash, this particular one has some glitter and I needed to double cut it (and will probably have to replace my blade! lol). It has only a pattern on one side so I cut out a pink and white striped paper to put inside and use as the bunny head shape on the outside.
I changed the look slightly by making it a shaker box and added sequins to the inside sealed between two clear sheets. This is only my second 'shaker' so I need to look for foam pieces/strips that I can curve with the shape for future projects - this looks a bit 'bitty' from the side.
I added a few smaller bunny heads in different patterns around the box for the photos and will include them in box with a bag of treats.
I had some spare bunny heads so I turned them into a fun banner for the background. I also used a sheer ribbon for the handle which matched the box nicely.

I hope you enjoyed my 3D Bunny Purse Box today - I love it and wish I could make more all night - but family duties call :-)

Happy Crafting!
