Bunny Box

I've been very naughty today. I should be doing lots of work things and instead I made a cute bunny box for Easter :)  Oh well, with any luck maybe my hubby will sack me and I can retire lol (probably not much chance of that but I can dream!)

I saw this cute box on Papercraft Planet and thought it would be fun to make a cut file for it. The original template is FREE from Easter Colouring Pages. I traced it in MTC...simply the BEST and easiest to use cutting software you can find....then made inner ears and bellies to decorate it. The original size uses a 12 x 12 sheet of paper and would hold a medium size egg or maybe two smaller ones. I didn't have any large eggs on hand but did have some small solid Cadbury eggs. So I used a cello bag, half filled it with the eggs and popped it in the little box...cute!

Then I got to thinking that a tiny box would be cute for a single small egg or the little solid eggs, so I went and reduced the pattern and gave it a go. End result...super cute lol This size uses an A4 sheet of paper.

The only tricky bit is slotting the hands together when you finish decorating it. Be careful not to tear the  CS! You have to sort of bend one out to the front and hold the other one back...hope that makes sense! If you make this you'll see what I mean. For those who don't have a cutting machine, the template from Easter Colouring Pages can be cut by hand.

I've added a link for the zip file below, which contains the MTC & SVG files. If you use the file I'd love to see what you make. Leave a comment and I'll come and check out your blog :) I'd appreciate you linking back to here for the file...not offering it from your blog...thank you.  Let me know if there are any problems with the link.
