Easter Boxes and Baskets for the KL SNS Challenge #23

Kristine challenged us this week to create a box of some sort, so with Easter right around the corner, I couldn't resist trying my hand at a cute little Easter basket (now I need some goodies to put in there).  I have been trying to eat healthier and get in shape, so Hershey's Kisses or Reese's PB cups aren't in the house!!  yet anyway *wink*


I was just dying to get my hands in that little packet of mini rose primas (shared a few with a customer this week too, so the packet is looking a bit empty in the photo).  :)

Anyway . . . I used some of the green mini rose primas with a pale yellow ribbon (close match to the Barely Banana cs, I think), Lemonade BasicGrey paper and my Martha Stewart doily punch to "girlie" it up a little.  The tutorial can be found HERE at SCS for the basket.

The stamp used here is from C. C. Designs and is called SweetNovember Baby Bunny with Egg.
It was colored with the Copics shown below as well as highlighted with the Signo white gel pen also available at KL Stampin N Scrappin.  There is a little sparkle added to the egg with a Sakura gel pen but of course it doesn't show well in the photo.

Last but definitely not least . . . My good friend, Luanne created these sweet bunny and chick boxes after looking at this Bunny Box Tutorial from Marie They were created with the Top Note Die from SU and paper punches.  I hope to try mine this weekend with my scalloped circle nesties and ovals since I don't have all of the punches.  But really . . . aren't they cute?!
Okay, so now you have to show us your boxed item.  Check out the challenge details on the design team blog for KL Stampin N Scrappin by clicking here!!  Come on and join the fun for a chance to win a surprise Easter package this week worth $15-20!!

First off, your box is adorable! Would it fit a few of the cadbury eggs with grass in between? I could use some cheering up. Fill 'em with Reeses and send them MY way! LOL.

And your friends boxes using that die cut? They are to die for!
