Easter gift and card

Hi. Welcome. Glad you stopped by to have a look. I have had this idea in my head for awhile. We received this container with pretzels for Christmas and I saved it with the intension of reusing it. So today was the day. First, I cleaned and dusted, did laundry and went outside for a bit to skim the top of the pond, it is a mess! Anyway, it was late in the day by the time I got to come upstairs and play. I made a bag of microwave popcorn and drizzled melted Wilton Chocolate over it and let it harden. I then filled the container. It took most of the bag except for a few pieces which I promptly ate. I covered the original label with cardstock. The bunny is a stamp by Inkadinkado. I stamped him on the topnote piece and then colored with Tombow markers. I trimmed the cardstock with rickrack. The top of the container has a flower , which is a sizzix bigz die cut, Flower Layers #4. I have shown a close up of the flower on the top of the container. Tied a bow around the container and made a matching Easter card. Hope you had a relaxing Sunday. Until later..................
