Bye Baby Bunting!

Do you guys know that song?
Bye Baby Bunting,
Daddy's gone a hunting
To get a little rabbit skin
To wrap the baby bunting in!
I use to sing it all the time to my younger brothers and sister when they were growing up.. and when my own kids came along too! Then I realize how violent a song it really is.. kinda like Rock-a-bye-baby...
None the less, when I saw this post it just reminded me of that song.... plus because Easter is over doesn't mean we can't keep making those adorable little bunnies... here's a great project for a baby gift box that Nikki Spencer had on her blog... she altered measurements on the caddy style box taken fro Dawn Olchefske's samples.
The measurements and score lines are in the picture below. It's held together with a fun fold and 2 mini glue dot's. She decorated the caddy with some punch art bunnies made with Pink Pirouette Cardstock.

To create the big bunny, she used 1" & 3/4" Circle punches for the body, Build a Blossom Punch for the ears, Trio Heart punch (retired) for the feet & the Itty Bitty flower Punch for the tail.
For the baby bunny, she used 3/4" & 1/2" Circle punches for the body, Flower Punch (retired) for the ears, Trio Heart Punch for the feet & Itty Bitty flower Punch for the tail.

Cardstock: 8.1/4" x 8.3/4"
Score along the 8.3/4" side @ 1.3/4"--3.1/2"--5.1/4"--7"
rotate & score @ 1.3/4" & 6.1/2"
Bye Baby Bunting!
