Easter Extravaganza - Beautiful holder for bunny

My kids love giving teachers gifts for any occasion, and Easter is no exception.  However with lots of teachers and teaching assistants the cost can add up, so the answer for me is all in the presentation.  Don't you think that this gifts look more expensive than 79p because of the presentation!  I do and so did the kids.

 It is really easy to make and used 1 piece of A4 paper cut in half vertically.  I then cut that to measure 22cm with a score at 4cm (longside)

To make the closure it is the Scalloped Tag Top punch - and you don't have to just use on paper that fits in the slots (which is only 2") you can use any width of paper.  You will just need to make sure you push the paper you are using all the way in, with the same amount on each side for a centre tag, and then punch as I have done here.

Then just cut the bits at the side off and you have the piece for your closing.


I then used a framelit to cut the square shape out the one piece of the paper; stuck the two pieces together by overlapping the 4cm pieces with some Tombow,, decorated the box, added the bunny and there you have it!

 Oh forgot to mention to make the frame piece you just use two different sized framelits, one of them is the framelit you used the cut the hole, the other a bigger one to give you the width of frame you desire.

Hope this makes some sense, next time I promise more pictures to add to the instructions!

Check in tomorrow to see how to make this cuts little basket.....

Happy Crafting
