Easter Scrapboxsket: Easter Basket In A Box

So, even though College Boy aka Chocolate Chip aka our son will spend his first Easter away from home ( sniff sniff, waaaaah) , he still needed to have an Easter “basket” right?

Bunny Box

Shipping costs being what they are, I had to get creative. I wasn’t about to ship an actual basket.  I looked around and had an old box from some photos I ordered from Snapfish. Perfect. Re-use, re-purpose, recycle…especially during April which is “Earth Month”.

Of course I couldn’t just leave it plain, so  I scrapped the inside of the lid!

I took a piece of green Core’dinations cardstock and some coordinating paper from my stash and measured to fit inside the lid. Then tore the patterned paper and adhered to top and bottom as shown. What’s an Easter basket without a chocolate bunny?

Chocolate Vinyl Bunny

This bunny is melt proof since it’s from chocolate colored vinyl. I found a bunny image in the Silhouette online store and dressed him up with a swirly ribbon bow tie, and a rhinestone tail.

I took a scrap of the green cardstock and freehand cut some “grass” for the bunny to nestle in.

Hoppy Easter

I cut the words “Hoppy Easter” from the same chocolate vinyl and embellished with more rhinestones. Son will understand that when it comes to his mom “it don’t mean a thing, if it ain’t got that bling”.

Oh and what’s inside?

A real chocolate bunny, and lots and lots of “eggs”.

"Boxsket" is great! Love the 3-D blades of grass, and all those eggs will be eaten in about 4 minutes.

This is lovely. I'm sure he will appreciate all the effort and the goodies inside.

It makes me happy that my son is only an hour and a half away, so he gets to come home for Easter. I makes me feel a little spoiled.
