Easter Bunny Gift Box

Hello friends!  Welcome to this week's Bitten by the Bug 2 Cricut Challenge. My talented and sweet Design Team sister, Laurie, selected this week's challenge - 3-D Cut challenge.  Laurie based her selection on March being the third month of the year!  How clever is that?  The challenge is to use your Cricut to create whatever 3-D project strikes your fancy.

With Easter at the end of the month, I am already thinking about Easter Bunnies and basket fillers.  I made this cute 3-D box to use in an Easter Basket.  The basic box was cut using the Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More 2 cartridge in Design Space.  I found this tiny bunny print cardstock in my Easter stash and thought it would make an adorable box!

My sweet Teddy Bunny was created using the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge. I just love this cut!  The bear is just so cute dressed as a bunny.  I hand cut a shadow layer to add a bit of contrast.

The eggs on the box did not photograph true to color (the yellow on the eggs and the bear is off).  The eggs are very pretty in real life, not having the mustard color depicted in the photos.  In fact, I will be making more of these eggs in the very near future.  You can find them in Design Space on the Happy Easter Cartridge.

I finished the card with the Happy Easter phrase from the Birthday Cakes cartridge.  I like this pretty cursive cut, in fact I wish that I had this font on my computer!

I hope that you decide to join us this week at Bitten By The Bug 2 for our 3D challenge.  I would love to see your 3-D projects.

  4. so sweet, I know who is getting this little treat bag. Nice colors too. I had grand ideas of making lots of Easter Cricut items, but don't think its going to happen. Love that bear, I just used this cartridge for the first time last week.
