Repurpose an Old Drawer Into an Easter Basket

It's time to make Easter baskets for the grands and nieces and nephews but I really was wanting to make something DIFFERENT. Then I spied my stash of old bureau drawers which I've been absconding from the side of the road. I take them right out of damaged and no good bureaus. I figure, the drawers are still good. This is the first time I've done anything with my stash of old drawers, though. Gotta think of more ideas. Have any suggestions?
The first thing I did was paint it white. I couldn't spray it because the weather has been so cold here in Connecticut.. cold and snowy all winter long.
I bought some pretty ribbons to wrap the whole thing up with and some Easter straw.
I added some candy and a ceramic bunny and a little pinwheel. I'll have to add an Icard - because that will make the whole thing SO much better, don't you know. :)
I printed out a pretty vintage bunny graphic from the Graphics Fairy blog and added that to the front of the box also.
I added a tissue paper flower, too. I have LOTS of colored tissue paper now because I made a post on making an art picture for the wall with a tissue paper flower.

      @Hannah V Thanks, Hannah. It was so fun to make something different from an Easter basket. It will be fun to watch the surprise also.
