Easter is this week and it is a small miracle that there are still Easter chocolate treats in my house. Usually by now I have restocked at least once! I blame Doodlebug completely - their Easter collections are always so darn cute that I find myself using them this time of year to make all kinds of cute treat containers. And if you are making treat containers, one must take out the treats to make sure they work in the creations. And then one must sample the goods to make sure they are worthy of the cute treat containers. I know you know what I am talking about!



So for this week's project, I actually grabbed the Hippity Hoppity 12x12 papers and teamed them up with a darling Doodlebug cut file you can find at the Lori Whitlock store (Hoppy Easter - Bunny 3- link below).

While this is a flat file, I figured I could turn it into a cute 3d treat box with just a little effort. Here are some tips if you would like to try it too:


When you cut the file, cut an extra copy of the pot shapes. One will create the front of the treat box and the other will go on the back to make the treat container look a little more finished from the back. I also only glue around the edge of the back pot so I can add a little note into it as well.

Cut a strip of paper 1.5" wide and the length of your 12x12 paper. Score 1/4" from each long edge. This will create the side panel for your pot - the piece you need to create to turn this from a flat cut file to a 3D shape. Cut up along the long edge of the paper to the score line. Then use these tabs to secure the side panel to the front pot first...


...and then onto the large white cutout of the rabbit to close the shape. Trim off the excess. I printed the cut file at about 5.5" wide and needed about the same in length for the side panels. Add the second cutout of the pot to the back and then add the details.


I also modified the size of the flowers in the cut fil by making one larger just for a bit of a different look. Fill up your treat containers and you are all set to go.


Here's a side view so you can see the 1.5" side panel in action.


I really love how these turned out! I think I need to go check out the other Doodlebug cut files to see if I can modify them in this way as well - if the treats last that long, that is!  Thanks for stopping by!
