Bunny box, a puppy and a few recipes

Here's the cute little bunny box I was talking about. I've seen them all over the web when I blog surf. I'm going to be making these at the seniors complex on Monday, hopefully they enjoy them.
The box is made with 1/2 a sheet of cardstock, the rest is made from punches. I didn't have all the sizes so had to cut the eyes out by hand. (they turned out pretty good)
After the boys saw this box they wanted to make one too.
Colby made his a red bunny, and Carter made a red puppy. I did most of it on Carter's he didn't have the patience. We also didn't ink the edge's on theirs, but should have so the body parts would stand out more. (If you click on the picture it'll make it bigger.) After I took the picture Colby decided he didn't want eyelids on his bunny so I took them off. I'm glad they have fun in my studio.
I also have the recipes from scrapday for those that asked for them.

1 tsp parsley flakes
