This was a make-and-take from Diana Parsons' Stampin' Up! Hostess night - so it is an idea she either found, or created herself, and I took it a few steps further. The basket is made with the Petal Cone Bigz Die - you simply cut and square off the bottom of the cone to make the basket, bend back the top flaps and use pop-up glue dots to hold them in place. Cut a 2-3/4" circle out of white and cut in half to adhere to the front and back flaps. Punch out the other shapes with the various punches (you can probably tell which ones you need). I used the smallest heart from the Heart-to-Heart punch for the nose and the feet. The toes are made with the circle from the Punch Pack (I think!). The tail is made out of the largest flower on the Boho Blossoms punch: cut out and scrunch 5-6 flowers, use pop-up glue dots (I like to cut the dot in fourths because this project is small), and layer them (this is the same technique you'd use for the scallop punch scruffy flowers, if you've ever seen them.) Or, you can use a pom pom ball, or anything you want for the tail. I used the chalks to put shading on the various parts of the bunny, and if you want you can also add whiskers. I also used 1/4" google-eyes. The handle is made with a strip of paper - you can use a border punch or anything you want to make it decorative. It's super easy and fun, and definitely a project your kids could help you with!
