Here comes the Easter Bunny!

So, I've been sick most of the weekend and didn't get to play along with most of the challenges on VSN. :( To cheer myself up today I decided to make another coaster box. While I was organizing my stamp room for VSN, I ran across an unopened and forgotten pack of Making Memories Boho Chic -Lauren patterned paper. It was so cute and springy that I had to pull out my new Cat's Pajamas bunny stamps.
To begin I cut four 4" squares of the paisley printed paper and ran through my Xyron. (I didn't cover the bottom coaster, because...what's the point? LOL!) Placed the patterned paper on the lightweight coasters, cut the rounded corners and sanded lightly with a sanding block. Then I Modpodged the outsides of the coasters and let them dry.

While that was drying, I stamped Bunny Kitty on watercolor paper with black Stazon ink and cut out with my Creative Memories circle cutting system. Next I colored the image with Tempting Turquoise, Gable Green (thought I grabbed celery, but it worked out anyway) and Pale Plum Stampin Write Markers and a blender pen. Then I highlighted with Crystal Effects and poured Dazzling Diamonds on the top. Layered the image onto a circle of caribbean patterned paper and a Mega Scalloped circle punch of plum patterned paper (all from the Making Memories Lauren pack) with holes pierced in the scallops. Next I stamped Some Bunny in Black Stazon on watercolor paper and matted on caribbean patterned paper.

When the Modpodge was dry I punched holes with my Crop-a-dile and laced the box together with white grosgrain ribbon. I really wanted some plum, celery or caribbean organdy, but didn't have any so I settled for the grosgrain. The handle is made with a 1" x 9" strip of patterned paper layered onto a 1.5 x 9" piece of pale plum and attached using a Crop-a-dile and a W-R-Memories square snap.

To finish I attached the stamped images with pop dots and filled with easter grass and plastic eggs for a totally cute Easter basket.

Thanks for all your wonderful comments! They're so much fun to read. Tune in Monday for the winner of my Blog Candy giveaway!
