Take your chosen designer series paper or cardstock and cut to the size shown below.

It should look like the container in the second picture below.  I stamped the rabbit and coloured with Stampin’ Blends as they share beautifully.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I used Memento Black but you could easily subsitute with a coloured ink pad.  I fussy cut around them both and stuck them to the container with mini dimensionals ( they are so handy).  All you need to do now is gift them to a friend or family !

My final step was to add a little of the new scalloped lace trim which is lined up against the box edge.  I’ve shared a little close up below so you can see this in more detail.
