Hoppin’ into Spring

Hello Everyone!

Spring is finally into full swing, at least here in the midwest.  It is such a wonderful season; I love watching everything come alive again!
 Today I am sharing a sweet little box with you; it would make a great treat box for Easter or would also be perfect to hold a little gift or trinket.

To make this box-
1.  I made my box out of Curious Metallic Cryogen White cardstock and  used my We R MemoryKeepers Gift Box Punch Board to cut and score. 
 You could use a template and hand cut your shape, or if you have an electronic cutting machine, you could use that to cut your template.  Assemble your box. 
2.  Cut a shape for your sentiment and to back your embellishments.  I cut a scalloped circle out of the Curious Metallic Lime cardstock
3.  Now you can embellish.  I added designer paper to the sides of the box.  Then I cut some grass using Curious Metallic  Botanic cardstock.  I used a die, but fringe scissors or hand cutting would work as well.  Notice the gorgeous glimmer of the Curious Metallic cardstock!

4.  My bunny image was stamped on the Curious Metallic Cryogen White cardstock and colored with Copic markers. I cut a circle out of Cryogen White cardstock as well and mounted it to the scallop circle. 

5.  I stamped my sentiment and adhered the circle to the box.  Next, I added one layer of grass to the box, and then using 3D foam adhesive, I added the second layer of grass.  My bunny was tucked in between the layers of grass and then finished it off with a handmade flower, stamped and die cut out, using Curious Metallic Cryogen White cardstock
6.  To add even more sparkle to the flowers, I ‘colored’ then with the Zig Wink of Stella marker.  I had heard so much about this marker; it really stands up to its reputation; it lays down such amazing sparkle! Finally, add some pearls and tie it all up in a bow! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Happy Crafting!
