Some Bunny Loves You

...especially this bunny, called "Lil Ragamuffin Bunny" from Addicted to Stamps.  Here she is, showcased on a 2-in-1 card and treat box. 

I went over to Jinky's Crafts Blog and watched the tutorial for making a 3-in-1 card with treat box and treat bag, but wanted something easier.  So I mixed up her instructions a little and came up with a treat box attached to an easel card.

This project is made using two pieces of cardstock and some patterned paper.  It's all in the way it's scored.  So where, oh where, is my green element on my card?  It is St. Pat's Day, and the last day you can win blog candy.  All you have to do is tell me how YOU are going green in your craft room!

My trick today?  I sometimes get packaging that has a clear window with a piece of acetate, either in the mail or something I may have bought at the store, totally un-craft-related.  Well, you guessed it, I save those clear pieces of treasure.  When I cut out the window for my treat box, I found a piece of stahed acetate that I adhered to it and voila, a treat box with a window!!

So I plan to make a few of these for the next girls' day out with my mom and sisters.  I'll box them with the cool scoring tool I have called the Boxer/Enveloper ScorBoard.  With it I can make envies up to a couple inches thick!!  Here's what the card will look like laying in its box.

Patterned Paper: Basic Grey Sulky
