Stampin' On Tuesday Project #3 - Just in Time For Easter

Who doesn't like the Easter Bunny? Everyone I know not only likes, but adores him and that's why Sheri and I decided to make this cute little bunny container for our third project last Tuesday. 

Actually, I don't think I had any choice in the matter.  When I showed Sheri this Easter Bunny I made at Cheryl LeFore's stamp club back in February, she immediately wanted to make one too. 

Supplies:
Card stock: 
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Strawberry Slush
  • Basic Black
  • Very Vanilla
DSP:
  • Sweet Sorbet (Sale-a-Bration designer series paper - now retired) or DSP of your choice for ears and egg
Framelits:  Ovals Collection

Big Shot:  Petite Purse Bigz L Die 

Punches: 
  • Extra Large and Small Oval punches
  • Small Heart Punch
  • 1/4 Hole Punch
  • Word Window
Ribbon:  White Baker's Twine

Accessories: 
  • Dimensionals
  • Tom Bow glue
  • Pom Pom for tail 
Assembly:

For the Basket: 
  1. Start with a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" piece of Chocolate Chip card stock to create the egg basket that the bunny is attached to.  Run this piece through the Big Shot with the Petite Purse Bigz L Die
  2. Cut off the purse flap as you don't need this piece. 
  3. Crease on the score lines and use sticky strip to adhere the sides of the basket.  
  4. Attach the handle with glue dots.
  5. Glue a pom pom on the back of the basket for the bunny tail.
  6. Put shredded paper in basket and add chocolate eggs or kisses for treat.
 
In step two you need to cut off the top flap that looks like a dome in this photo.

For the Bunny:  
  1. Cut a piece of Chocolate Chip  3" x 4" and die cut with the Oval Framelit for the Bunny's body.
  2. Using 1 3/4" x 2 3/4" pieces of Chocolate Chip cut out two ovals for the ears with the smallest Oval Framelit die. Punch out two more ovals for the arms and legs (2 for ears, 1 cut for arms cut in half and 1 cut in half for legs. Attach arms and legs to the body with dimensionals. 
  3. Using 2" x 2" pieces of DSP punch out 2 ovals for the insides of the ears with the extra large oval punch. Attach ears with Tom Bow glue.
  4. Punch 2 eyes from Basic Black card stock with the 1/4" punch. Adhere to bunny's face with Tom Bow glue.
  5. Punch out a small heart from Strawberry Slush card stock for the nose.  
  6. Cut three 1" strips of Baker's twine.  Attach to the back of the heart with a glue dot and then attach heart with a dimensional to bunny face.
  7. Punch out a small scrap of DSP with the small oval punch for the egg.  Place this between the arms.
  8. Stamp "Happy Easter" sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink on Very Vanilla card stock.
 
Here are the two bunnies we made.  Mine has the Sweet Sorbet DSP for the ears and Egg and Sheri has used retired DSP for her version.  She also used different twine for her whiskers and omitted the sentiment.

In this view you can see the cute little basket made with the Petite Purse Bigz L Die. The basket will hold a couple of small wrapped Easter eggs or some Hershey's Kisses. 
 
 
Additional note:  Sheri also made these three "Super Sized" bunnies.  Aren't they adorable?  They are twice the size of the ones we made above and she filled them with chocolate covered eggs.  She gave one to Ethel, myself and Debby at our last get-together!  What a friend!!!  

I hope you enjoyed this post and found the instructions easy to follow.  Happy Easter everyone!
