Chubby Easter Bunny Baskets

Here's my Easter project this year. I think they are darling and very easy to make, so I did a few in Spring colors. First, I cut out a 7" oval in white CS and cut it in half to make the body for the front & back and attached to a 4" x 4" box. To make the box, I started with an 8" x 8" piece of CS, scored at 2" on all 4 sides.

The bunny's ears, eyes, nose, feet & tail were made with various size punches. The handle measures 1-1/2" x 11". I used a decorative border punch on each side and attached a ribbon down the center. I filled these baskets with several pieces of chocolate, so they were a little heavy. I attached the handle to the basket with a small amount of sticky strip and a brad on each side.

I hope everyone had a glorious & blessed Easter!
