Mail Box Easter Bunny

I get very excited when I can use up stuff in my stash. I have limited space in my crafting area, so when I use something, it makes room for me to buy more stuff! I bought a bunch of these mailboxes last year for Valentine's Day, and I had one left. So, I decided to transform it into a fun Easter decoration/basket.

I made the face using a variety of paper punches, Nestabilities, and my Cricut. The eyes are accented with a white gel pen, the cheeks blushed with chalk, and the freckles are made using a sharpie pen.

I wrapped a piece of designer paper around the mailbox. Ric-rack was glued around the edges. I wrapped a piece of polka dotted ribbon around the middle of the mail box. The tag was made using a stamp from Dandelion Designs. A button and some paper leaves completed the flower embellishment. I glued a pom pom on for the tail.

Then, my favorite part, I filled it with some paper shred and candy!
