Bunny-rama, Part III: Bunny Bandage Tin

Have I mentioned how much I like 3-D projects? Cards are great, of course, but there's something about a little book, box, tin, or other non-flat object that really floats my boat. Hare's another bunny project you might enjoy (sorry, couldn't resist the pun!) using a bandage tin box:


This one was really simple to put together, but I did have a couple of things I wanted to mention. The patterned cardstock that covers the tin measures 3 5/16" x 8". After cutting out this panel, trim a 1/16" wide x 2 1/4" long sliver from the long side starting 7/8" from the short edge:

Then place the cut-out sliver part on the back of the tin, just underneath the hinge, when you adhere the panel to the tin. That way, the edge of the panel won't get crinkled when you open the lid. And the green eyelet-style edging along the bottom? I made it with the Fiskars Threading Water Border Punch.

Update on 11/23/09: Unfortunately, the Bandage Tin has been discontinued by the manufacturer and we are no longer able to get this product in stock.
