Before I share my project with you I wanted to tell you a funny story about it. I started out making rice krispie treats in the shape of carrots and covered them in orange and green chocolate then put them on a stick. My original idea was to use that for the Peachy Keen Treat holder challenge. I came home and asked my hubby where the carrots where and he said "OOHHH you wanted those??" I was about to flip out but decided to go to Plan B. I didn't have anything left over to make another batch so I made brownies and used a whole body of a bunny and cut them out so they would look like a chocolate bunny. Again I was going to put them on a stick but they were so moist it wasn't gonna work so well. So I put three aside and fed the rest to the wolves that were staring me down for some. LOL! The next day my Mom was watching the girls so I could go to a doctors appointment. I came home and she says to me..."Your brownies were really good." I said "What brownies (since they were all gone)?" Then it hit me, I yelled out please dont' tell me that you ate the ones in the foil hidden all the way in the back on the counter!!!!! arrgghhh She said well I just ate an ear and Mia ate a head.!! I wanted to scream yet again. So came up with Plan C but I was so distressed I ate Plan C. So Plan D was store bought cookies with the bunny already in the cookie!! I gave up after that fiasco.
Now onto my project!! :) After having to change my idea a gazillion and one times I came up with this cookie holder. The cookie holder is from SVG ATTIC's Cookies for Santa collection. It is actually a very nice size and would hold a bunch. I was going to cut out the inserts to it and put several different kinds of candy but they were to big for my mat. The grass border I sized down from the Easter Elements collection to fit the width of the box.
In my opinion this bunny has to be one of the cutest bunnies ever so I had to cut her out. Originally I left the middle open so you could see the cookies but I wanted to use this bunny. I colored her with my PrismaColor pencils. I found this piece of paper from another project already stamped with Market Street Stamps Sweet Lace background stamp. It fit the opening perfectly so I added it. The bunny is from PKS PK-286 Easter Patch, the sentiment from PK-278 Easter Basket Paint Fight and the carrots are from the BUNNIES die. Coloring this bunny made me realize how much I miss my PKS family.
Sorry about the bad pic of the inside. I didn't realize until now that I forgot to take a pic of the inside. So I hurried up and took one with my Iphone. I would of had to go past my girls room to get my camera and they would of seen me preventing me from finishing this post!
