Recycled Box-Easter Basket & Bunny Shaped Card

Everyone looks for that last minute Easter basket or box, it never fails.

I love recycling things and it's awesome when you find something sturdy! So this simple empty box became.....

A super fun Easter Basket and it had a white lining.

The box had preforated slits down the side so easy to cut the top 1/2 off, covered with Close To My Heart Paper and punched a hole for the ribbon. (This grograin ribbon was hand died by a friend~ Thanks Betti!)
Filled with shredded paper, and a few goodies, added a die cut bunny. (You could add whatever) I would suggest your tie a knot on your handle to secure for carrying. You could add fringe, or ribbon around the top, flowers, bling, dies or other on the front. This also holds cards! Next...

A bunny shape cut from a card.

Random stamped with Close to My Heart Chocolate ink and stamped with one of the eggs from Easter Eggs stampset (Feb. Stamp of the Month).

I liked the eggs because it gave dimension and a look of feet and legs. Decorate with ribbon, flowers, bling or what ever. Make a liquid applique or flower tail.
Stamp any greeting you like, chalk, distress or use other techniques as desired. If you are a registered follower of my blog, email me for the template for the bunny card!
