The Easter Bunny Has Arrived, Yeah!

Super Saturday Tutorial Number Two today… LOL, that doesn’t happen often!! 

I was going to save this for next weekend… but thought you’d rather be able to order all the supplies at My Online Stampin’ Up! Store to have them arrive early enough so that you can sit down and make them before Easter!!

Today’s Easter Bunny Treat was a huge hit at the First Wednesday Card Club earlier this week… and it’s so easy to make, even your kids will want to help!

(2) Basic Black Itty Bitty Shapes circle punches

(2) Pretty In Pink Scallop Oval card stock punches

(1) Pretty In Pink Itty Bitty Shapes Circle Punch

Step By Step Assembly Instructions:

  1. Sponge edges of all very vanilla and pretty in pink card stock punches using pretty in pink classic ink and stamping sponge wedge.
  2. Use Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker and fine tip to draw mouth on bunny face, and then attach Pretty in Pink nose just above mouth.
  3. Use white gel pen to make a small comma on each black bunny eye, and attach to face._Comma_accented_white_gel_pen
  4. Attach each pretty in pink scallop oval punch to an extra wide very vanilla punched card stock piece using multipurpose adhesive (ears), attach to back of bunny face with multipurpose adhesive.
  5. Tie ribbon into a bunny ear bow, and attach to top of bunny face/head at base of ears.5.bunny_ears_and_Bow
  6. Attach a 1.5” York Peppermint Patty candy to the back of the bunny face using 2-3 mini glue dots.
  7. Align the second 2-1/2” very vanilla card stock circle so that it is even with the bunny face, and attach with 2-3 mini glue dots to the back of the candy.sandwich_the_york_Peppermint_patty
  8. Use snips to create a narrow, flat edge along the bottom edge of back circle.. not too much or your bunny won’t stand up!8._Snip_A-Small_Wedge_Of_Cardstock_off_Bottom_back_of_Bunny_Head

Today’s Tips for Paper Crafters:

  • The snipped area is about 1.25” long… just barely removing a portion of the circle.
  • You can get six bunny heads/ears combos from 1.5 sheets of Very Vanilla Card Stock (8.5” x 11”)
  • Each bow uses approximately 9” of ribbon, one 10 yard roll of ribbon will yield 40 bows.
  • Tie a perfect “bunny ear” bow simply following this tutorial for bunny ear bows!

See you tomorrow with a couple new cards Winking smile  I hope you’ll stop by to say hi!

Lordy how stinkin' cute Sharon!!! I am def gunna get my ki.ds (the gal perhaps moreso than the boy) to try and make one or 2 of these. Don't ask me why, but for some odd reason I am reminded of the cartoon character Miffy when I first saw the bunny face!! Just gorjus.

Simply adorable, Sharon, and oh so sweet. The cutest bunny ever sporting a peppermint patty is high on my radar! Thanks for all the details to recreate these ~ make a great favor at Easter brunch or dinner.

So cute - I'm going to try modifying it as a simple card to mail to 2 young great-granchildren sans mint patty. I also checked in to watch the bow-making video and want to thank you for what I consider the key instructions in that - how to attach bow so it doesn't come undone when loosely knotted. I've always noted they look so much better when not pulled tightly, but always worried about them coming undone. The glue dots are a simple solution and I appreciate that info.

That is so cute. It would even be great for a baby card, w/o the candy. :)
