Craftin' the Days Away

Not really.
Sometimes I may wish I could craft the day away.
But c'mon, that's not realistic.
We did find a little extra time for crafting this weekend, though.
And it felt sooo good to get out the scissors, glue, ribbon, and lovely, lovely, {oh so lovely} scrapbook paper.
Ahhh, I love pretty paper.
Anyway.

We made Bunnies!
We are so ready for Spring, and flowers, and sunshine, and bunnies.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I am no artist. I need templates for everything.
So, I searched online for a bunny template, and I found these precious creations at Betz White's. We even made these little bunnies for the girls to snuggle {not out of cashmere, just minky}, but her template worked fabulously for this other project I had in mind. One that you can do too!
Here's what you'll need:
Scrapbook Paper
Glue
Ribbon
Stickers/Brads/Embellishments
To make things a little easier for the girls, I printed the template on the "wrong side" of the scrapbook paper. That way they could easily cut around the dotted line, and no ink would show on the pretty side. Once your bunny is cut out, it's time to glue and decorate.

We glued ours to an 8x8 sheet of scrapbook paper

Kam kept us entertained all the while.

Once I cut mine {Kam's} out, I attached a little flower bunny tail with a rhinestone brad.

Makenna was pretty proud of hers. Cute, no?

We used a brad for the eye, and the girls insisted on little hearts for our bun-buns ;)

Once we were done assembling, and they were glued to the squares, we punched holes to attach.

And used ribbon to hold them together.

A little ribbon at the top to hang . . .

And voila! Easter Decor :)

I used the same template to cut out oil cloth.

She looks cute guarding the Easter Eggs, don't ya think?

More crafty goodness to come, stay tuned! :)
