Happy Easter Bunny Treat

Isn't this the cutest little treat holder? I had so much fun making this. My favorite part is the little flower tail! Once I put that in place it turned into an adorable little bunny.

Here is how the bunny is made. I used the Ornament Punch and the 1-1/4" circle punch. After the pieces were punched, I cut off the top on the ornament and just the tip at the bottom.
For the ears I took one of the punched circles and put it back into the punch sort of half way and punched. To do the second ear, just turn the punched piece around and stick it back in and lay the ear piece already punched on top so that you get the same size, and punch. Hope that makes sense.
So then you get two little bunny ears the same size
Before I assembled the bunny I sponged all the edges with Early Espresso ink which is the same color as the cardstock. It just adds depth to the little guy. I used snail adhesive to stick the pieces together. It's beginning to look like a bunny..........
For the tail I used the Vanilla Flower Trim in the Spring Mini Catalog. Those little flowers come in handy for lots of different projects! I wanted my bunnies tail to be pink, so I sponged the flower with Pink Pirouette ink before adding it to the punched bunny.....
Now it looks like a bunny with a little fluffy tail! Just to cute : ) 
The Happy Easter stamp is from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set - one of my favorites, then cut out with one of the shapes from Bitty Banners Framelits. I think I use those Framelits the most out of my collection.

To make the treat holder I used the Two Tags Bigz Die for the Big Shot. I cut two. Because this die has a fold in it, you must use a crease pad when cutting so that the fold line does not cut all the way through.
After the pieces were cut I ran them through the Big Shot again using the Vine Street Embossing Folder from the sale a bration brochure. Only a couple of weeks left to get this product free with a qualifying order!
To assemble, fold at the score line, place sticky strip tape on the bottom of one of the tags and adhere to the other one like this.
Now it's ready for candy! I used Hershey's nuggets and designer paper cut 1" wide and long enough to wrap around the chocolate. Glue Dots hold the candy in place.

These will look adorable on the table for Easter dinner or given out to friends or teachers. Instead of the bunny on the front you could put a flower for a Springtime treat for someone or for a wedding shower, a baby shower or how about a tea party! The possibilities are endless. I hope this inspires you to make these little treat holders. If you have any questions, you can leave a comment.
