How I made a cute little container for crochet toy rabbit food

For Christmas, I crocheted our niece a picnic basket and some play food.

She had a birthday recently, so I figured I'd add to her toy food collection.

IBlog Photo made her some crochet chocolate sandwich cookies and a couple of slices of watermelon, because these are excellent picnic foods.

I also made three small carrots and three tiny heads of cabbage for her beloved toy bunnies.

I wanted to keep the toy food for the toy rabbits together, since all the pieces were fairly small. I decided to put it in a clear plastic container that once held items I bought at Beachy's Bulk Food.

Then, I realized it should be labeled.

I used images of a frame and a rabbit from The Graphics Fairy, an amazing website full of royalty-free images. I found exactly what I was looking for there.

I put the rabbit inside the frame, and typed the words "Rabbit Food" in Kelmscott Roman font.

Blog PhotoI printed it, laminated it and cut it out. I then used hot glue to attach it to the plastic container. It was pretty cute, and I like that it's also child-friendly. (For about two seconds, I considered using a mason jar and realized that would be a bad idea for a 2-year-old.)

Ahhh, I love a simple solution that you can easily make yourself.

Also, if anyone wants to use this label, email me and I'll send it right over. I had a heck of a time finding a pre-made printable rabbit food label, so if I can share this one, I'd be happy to.
