Bunny baskets boys and girls

OK so I've not got the Dad's Easter gifts covered yet - but I have got extras for the Mums and one for DH. I found these gorgeous bunny baskets and they were just so cute that I had to have a go.

Thanks to Wendy over at Got Rubber, Will Stamp, for her inspiration and instructions. She got the original design from Terri Ransom but I've not had any luck in tracking down Terri's version (please let me know if you spot it and I'll add a link).

My own changes/additions are the box base (because we don't have the Fancy Favor Die yet) and the teeth!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink/Bashful Blue, Basic Black
Ink: Crumb Cake, Pretty in Pink/Bashful Blue, Soft Suede, White Signo Gel Pen
Punches: 2" x 1-3/8" Oval, 1-3/4" x 7/8" Oval, 1-3/8" Circle, 1" Circle, 3/4" Circle, Heart to Heart, Two-step Owl, Boho Blossoms
Taffeta Ribbon: Pretty in Pink (I didn't add one for the boy bunny)
Bigz Die: Top Note
Other: Subtles Brads (Bashful Blue brads retired)

The box base is a 25cm x 8cm piece of Whisper White card. This is scored 1cm inwards from each long edge and 9cm inwards from each short edge. "V"s are cut from each short score line to reduce the bulk when folding and then Sticky Strip applied to the narrow margins:

The middle edge is adhered to the reverse of one Top Note in line with the bottom of the shape and then each long edge is folded in and adhered:

Repeat with the other Top Note die cut to form the basket. All the punched shapes are then sponged, highlighted and adhered to the basket front either directly or with dimensionals.
The teeth were hand cut and adhered behind the cheeks. A strip of Whisper White was secured to either side of the basket with brads and a little sponged tail popped up on a dimensional on the back:

And here are my girls and boy ready to be filled with little packets of treats.

Looking forward to a great weekend ... and I must get on with the Dad's gifts tomorrow.

Hope you all have an eggstra special Easter.
