Isn't he sweet?  My blue bunny perks up this easy to assemble Round Top Box (Delicate Dots Designer Series Paper).  The template is part of this week's Splitcoast "Try a New Technique" Challenge (TLC208) and can be downloaded by clicking HERE.  You may need to reduce the image slightly when you print on a 8.5 x 11 piece of paper.

The bunny is from Stampin' Up!'s Animal Crackers stamp set.  I stamped it in Basic Gray on Stampin' Up!'s Watercolor Paper.  TIP:  To avoid "pilling" and control your color, use quality watercolor paper (like Stampin' Up! offers) and waterproof ink (like Stampin' Up!'s Basic Gray, Basic Black and Basic Brown Classic Inks).

TIP:  By squeezing my Bashful Blue Classic Ink Pad, I created a small pool of ink on the inside lid.  Using a Blender Pen, I added color to the bunny, focusing darker areas on the edges and left side (as if the sun is shining from the right).  A wee bit of orange is added to the carrot with the fine tip of my Stampin' Up! Pumpkin Pie Marker.  Two stick-on rhinestones provide a touch of bunny bling.

The bunny was cropped and embossed using a Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and Circle Nestabilities (Nestabilities available at  Behind, I layered a Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery Daisy, created with Daisies #2 Flower Bigz Die.  Scallop Circle #2 Bigz Die is responsible for the So Saffron background layer. 

The flower on the front of the box combines two 5 Petal punches in Certainly Celery and So Saffron.  A 1/2" Circle in Bashful Blue topped by a stick-on rhinestone gives the center pizzazz.  The So Saffron 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon coordinates beautifully.

I wrapped up a Cadbury Caramel Chocolate Bar (resisting all temptation to gobble it) in Delicate Dots Designer Series paper.  It's accented with Certainly Celery 5/8" Poly-Twill Ribbon and another Daisy using my Bigz Daisy Die. 

The flower center ring was created using a 1/2" Circle Punch (first!) then cropping again with a 1" Circle Punch.  TIP:  For a unique polish, I threaded the ribbon through the center and tied a knot. The "yummy" stamp was inked in Basic Gray, stamped on Very Vanilla and shaped with Paper Snips.  It's adhered Stampin' Dimensionals.
