Illuminated Bunny Guest Spot at Top Tip Tuesday


      I have the honour of being a Guest Design Team Member at Top Tip Tuesday this fortnight.  I was thrilled to be asked to make a Non Traditional Christmas project for their new challenge.
     When I saw this cute bunny wrapped in lights I couldn't resist him. Some of you may be aware of my intense dislike of destructive (but cute) bunnies in my garden, so the opportunity to plug one in really made me laugh.
     This cute little bunny is from Zlatoena's Design who are one of TTT sponsors. He would be just as cute used on an Easter project, I don't think the lights restrict him to just Christmas.





     I have several tips for you on this one, Top Tip - use Stardust or glitter pens to colour the lights, it really makes them sparkle. Other tips include, use eyelets for the ribbon holes as it stops the card tearing when the ribbon is pulled. If you can't find a backing card the right colour use white and colour it with ink, but only colour where it will show so you don't waste your ink. Last but by no means least is measure carefully, then check it before you cut or crease, I'm speaking from experience on this one!
     The measurements for this treat box came from Splitcoast Stampers, they have a great tutorial on their site, this one is made with a 12x12 sheet of card. Measurements could be adapted to make other sizes for smaller treats.
     Thank you to Top Tip Tuesday for asking me to join them for this challenge. You can join in with any creation as long as it fits the Non Traditional Christmas theme, you don't have to have a top tip to join in but it would be appreciated.

I would like to enter my treat box in the following challenges:
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Non Traditional Colours
Completely Christmas - Anything Goes
Not Just Cards - Anything Goes
Holly Jolly Christmas - Anything Goes
