Bunny Ghirardelli Holders


Had seen the Bunny Treat Holders by Chat at:

http://memystampsandi.blogspot.ro/2010/03/bunny-treat-holders.html

Perfect size holder for the Ghirardelli candy bars.

Supplies used:

Stampin Up Ornament Punch (bunny head)
1/2" circle punch (pink cheeks)
3/8" circle punch (white nose)
Stampin Up oval punches -- old black punches for ears
Stampin Up Owl punch (black circle behind eyes)
Wiggle eyes
Stampin Up Gray ink/sponge
Thin black marker

For holder:

Sizzix Card, Petal die
Stampin Up Curly Label Punch
Stampin Up Cute and Curly stamp set
Stampin Up Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ribbons
Glue dots
StazOn black ink

To make the holder I cut out the Sizzix Card, Petal die in purple and pink card stocks.

For the bunny head I punched out two ornament pieces from white/GP card stock. Used scissors to cut off the top of the ornament. Used white/GP card stock for the white oval ears. Using the Stampin Up Gray ink I sponged the edges of the ornament pieces and the white oval ear pieces.

Punched out the white circle for the nose, the two pink ovals for the ears, and the two pink circles for the cheeks. Used glue dots to put the nose on the pink cheek circles. Used a fine black pen for whiskers next to the nose. Punched out two circles from black card stock using the Stampin Up Owl punch and put the wiggle eyes onto these black circles using glue dots. Then put the nose/cheeks piece on the ornament piece using glue dots. Put the wiggle eyes above this piece, again using the glue dots. Put the pink ovals on the sponged white ovals for the ears and put the ornament/face piece on the ears using glue dots.

Used a bone folder for the Card/Petal piece for the holder. Wrapped a ribbon around each holder and put that in place with a large glue dot. For the greeting I stamped a label stamp from the Stampin Up Cute and Curly stamp set using StazOn black ink on white/GP. Used the Stampin Up Curly Label punch and punched that out. Using oval punches I punched out a pink and a purple oval . Then stamped "Happy Easter" on white/GP and punched that out using a smaller oval punch. Put the greeting on the striped label using glue dots and put this on the holder front.

Put the ornament/bunny piece on the top of the holder using large glue dots. Added a Ghirardelli candy bar to the holder and this treat holder was complete. Here is a closer photo of the greeting and label piece:


Could add a small bow near the bunny ears if you wanted to dress it up a bit. Thanks to Chat for sharing her holder and directions on her blog. Another cute project using the Stampin Up Ornament punch. TFL and YOLO
