Lindt Bunnies - I Love 'Um!

Hi and Happy March Everyone,
Oh my gosh, I am so happy that it is March!! This is the month that I start thinking of all that nice weather that is coming down the pike.  Oh yeah, spring, St. Pat's parade day, open windows, Easter and oh those little Lindt bunnies that I love so much. By far these little guys are the most perfect chocolate bunny to give to children and adults alike.  It's the size, they are tiny.  A little 2 bite of Easter Bunny love!  Now I have used these little guys for years.  I just love to re-package them.  If you click on my Bunnies or Easter label you will see them all.  So this year I wanted them in a clear package.  Last year was a basket.  I have so many plastic report covers that if I don't start using them they will take over.  I had used a regular pillow box back at Christmas and I wanted to change it up a bit.  I kept seeing these standing pillow boxes that were made with a Sizzix die.  Well sure enough in my research I come to find out that they no longer make the die.  That then led to looking for a picture of one.  It took a long time to find one.  If I can see it, I can draw it.  Once I got the shape and the score lines worked out it was easy to size it perfectly for the little bunny.  I left just enough room for a bit of green paper grass.  Here is a picture of the first group.
Don't they look happy sitting in their little plastic box! The plastic covers cut perfectly with my ZING. I left the score lines because it was easier than hand scoring.  I am so happy with how easy and quick they went together.  Now to make more!
Here is a picture of the file if you would like to give it a try:

If you would like the .pdf file you can find it here:
The .MTC file is located here:
The fold may look a bit confusing but once you have it cut and in your hands you will see how easy it folds together. If you have any problems, just leave me a message and I will do my best to assist.
Here is one more picture of how happy they look!
I hope you like this file as much as I do.  Feel free to resize and alter to your needs.  If you like it as much as I do, won't you take a moment to leave me a message and some bloggie love.  It really is all I need to keep me sharing files.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit.  Next up on my craft table is an odd project that isn't paper, this time it's brick!


  1. Thank you so much for this wonder Bunny holder. My daughter makes a trip to Montreal every year just to bring back Lindt chocolate for all of us!!!

  2. Just an awesome box, thanks so much, love your creations!!!

    Thanks again,

  3. Lysa: I love all your Easter ideas. I would love to know what you used to make the tag for this year and also if you have the design for the foldable 3 dimension eggs from a few years ago. Many thanks. June

  4. LOVE this Lysa...another brilliant little box file :) Now to find some of those bunnies lol
    Hugs xx

  5. Hi June,
    Thanks so much for your kind words. The tag on the box is made in CraftArtist 2 and punched out with the new Stampin' Up mini curly label punch. When I get a new punch I scan the shape in to my MTC and create the shadow for it. I have a shadow for every punch I own. I am sorry I can't share the egg file as I purchased that from Paperthreads years ago. I can't remember the artist name but Michele is on the MTC forum and she may still sell it. I had also bought the apple. I love both those files and use them a lot. Also you can search google for one. They are called "sliceforms" There is a free one on extreme cards but it is not hollow. Check with Michele to see if she has it for sale. I hope this helps.
