Blue Bunny Box

Stampin up saleabration animal crackers

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.

Stampin up salebration box animal crackers

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 www.ucutathome.com).  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.
