Envelope Punch Board Bunny
My project today is a cute little bunny made with the Envelope Punch Board! She sure makes me think of spring! This idea was inspired by a Snowman that was created by Jackie Topa. Thanks Jackie for the inspiration!
Her body is a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock, cut 3 inches x 11 inches, and scored at 5 inches from each edge. I used my paper trimmer to score these lines. This created the base of the bunny.
To create her neck, I used the Envelope Punch Board - and punched four notches at 2 1/2 inches.
I did this to all four edges of the card stock -
This completes the base of the bunny - now to add the cuteness factor! Most of the rest of the bunny was done using Stampin' Up! punches -
Her eyes were punched in black cardstock with the 1/2 inch circle punch. I used the Chalk Marker to add some simple highlights to her eyes.
Her nose is created with the one inch circle punch and Sahara Sand cardstock. I added a few freckles with a Basic Gray marker.
Pink Pirouette cardstock was punched with the small heart punch and added to her nose. I attached a few wisps of linen thread beneath the heart for her whiskers, and then added a bit of pink pirouette to create her mouth.
To hold her together, I used a piece of Blushing Bride Chevron Ribbon and added a bit of a tea lace doily to create her collar.
Her ears were made using the Large Oval (pink pirouette) and the Extra- Large Oval (whisper white) punches.
Her carrot was made using a framelit from the Hearts Collection framelits - and the carrot top was easily created with my Fringe Scissors, and some gumball green designer series paper.
I created a small "Happy Easter" banner using a stamp from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, and added it to the carrot.
And we all know every well dressed Easter Bunny needs an Easter Bonnet - and hers was created using the 2 1/2 inch Circle Punch - I cut this in half and the brim of her hat is just a small piece of card stock with the corners rounded (using the envelope punch board). I used the Square Lattice die and my big shot to make her bonnet resemble a straw hat.
The flower on her hat is created using several layers of the 7/8 inch scallop punch - layered together and snipped with the fringe scissors. I sprayed a little water on the card stock so I could "scrunch" up the layers. To finish off the hat, I added a jumbo rhinestone.
Hope this helps you and that you want to create a Punch Board Easter Bunny of your own!
