Bunny Basket

I've been working on a project for the Papercrafting group to work on next week.


My inspiration for this project was my friend Nikki Spencer.  She did some bunnies last year and I thought they were so cute.  She was kind enough to send me a scan of the bunny pattern.  Thank you Nikki! Go check her out.  She is so talented!

I reduced and scanned and fiddled for the better part of a day to get the size I was happy with.  I don't want to have to make a withdrawal at the bank to fill this little guy.  He measures about 5" long from nose to tail and about the same from foot to ear tip.  The little box in the middle is about 1" x 4".  

Edited to add:  You can find the original pattern here.  And another delightful project using this bunny pattern at Anne's blog.

And since I was half asleep and didn't realize that CASology was asking for bunnies, I'm going to go in the back door and make a visit.  I hope the fact that it's not a card won't matter.


Dynamic Duos this week is

Perfect Easter colors!

And Simon Says Stamp challenge is asking for  A Bit O' Green.  It doesn't have to be a lot.  


All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Baroque Motifs, Easter Blossoms (both retired)
Ink: Crumb Cake, Garden Green, Daffodil Delight
Paper:  White (Georgia Pacific), Whisper White, Daffodil Delight scraps
Other:  Itty Bitty Shapes Punch, Basic Pearls, Daffodil Delight Seam Binding, Stampin' Pastels

The tail is a cotton ball.  If I get to the craft store, I'll have some authentic pom poms for the group.

I'm really glad you could stop by.

Enjoy!
