    one 3/4" Circle
    one 3/4" X 15/16" Oval

  5. Adhere bunny square onto Petal Card box as shown in photo 4.  Fold back one ear if desired.
  6. Fold Petal Card box on score lines and, using Mini Glue Dots, join the sides together.  See photo 5.
  7. Use Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and a 7" long piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock to make the handle for your basket.
