Bunny noses!

Today's my day to be the guest designer over at She's a Sassy Lady. If you have a moment please hop on over and leave me a comment. Here's my post:

Hi everyone! This is Kristy from craftin-on-my-door and I want to thank Sheila for allowing my to be her guest designer again today! I look forward to my monthly She's a Sassy Lady posts! Here's a cute and quick little project for Easter:
I used my trusty Gypsy and the Love Struck cartridge for the heart boxes and sized them at 6" each. Then I used the hide contour button to hide the hearts. Next, I placed a bunny head from Doodlecharms, and a rabbit from Celebrate with a Flourish over the hidden hearts. The bunny head was sized at 1.71" and the rabbit at 1.98".
I choose some "spring like" paper (from Me & My Big Ideas) and pushed cut. *FYI, I found that when I welded the rabbits onto the boxes, the Cricut didn't cut the score marks for some reason. 
 I just rolled with it, and scored where I needed to fold.
Before you glued the cute little box together you want to put something over the bunnies so that the jelly beans I mean Bunny noses don't fall out! I use pieces of packaging that I have in my stash. This piece was from a set of Halloween pins.
Just cut a square a little bigger then needed and add adhesive to the edges.
Now it's time to glue the little box together.
Once I scored and glued the boxes together I filled them with jelly beans I mean Bunny noses.
I used MS Word to make the tags, changed the font color to brown, and then printed onto white card stock.
Next, I used my faithful SU punches to punch out the saying, and a scalloped circle from card stock to add to the tag. (Yes, I first printed the saying in green, but then decided that I liked them in brown better).
In order to add a little something to the tags I decided to pierce each of the scallops. (The foam piece that I am piercing on top of is from a set of brads that I bought ages ago. It works perfectly for piercing!)
I also used a brown marker to doodle around the saying and then glued the pieces together.
I tied green tulle around the boxes and tied a knot.
Then, I folded the tulle over itself, tied some twine around it (to make it into a bow), added some more twine loops, and then added the final knot.
I also added a tiny Prima flower with a brad and attached the tag with a 3D glue dot.
I have to admit that I had a hard time not eating all of the "Bunny noses!" I almost had to take a picture of empty boxes! :) A big thanks to the hubbie for running out and picking up some more!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have an amazing Easter and get to spend time with the ones you love! <3 Kristy
