I found this idea on-line and I thought that this Easter bunny was so cute! This project is so simple that it would be great for making multiple items or a great project to do with kids! We made these for my kids school teachers gift.
Easter Bagalope Tutorial~
Supplies: Legal Size Envelope, Stamp Set, Ink, Ribbon, Craft Glue, 3-D Dots, Black Marker, White Marker, Scissors, Pom Pom and a Tape Runner.
Punches: 3/4 x 1 1/2″ Oval, 1 1/4×2″ Oval, 1 1/2″ Circle, 3/4″ Circle, 1/4″ Circle, 1/8″ Circle and a Small Flower.
Seal the envelope and then stamp the front of the envelope. I used Old Olive ink.
Make a template that is 1″x4 1/2″ . Trace around it on the top right and top left corner to make the handle of the Easter basket.
Cut a piece of green (I used old olive) 1″x4 1/8″, then cut grass strips about 3/4 ” deep.
Punch out the following shapes:
4 Lt. Pink 3/4″ x 1 1/2 ” ovals – I used Pretty in Pink
2 Lt. Brown 3/4″ x 1 1/2″ ovals – I used Creamy Carmel
4 Lt. Brown 1 1/4″ x 2″ ovals – I used Creamy Carmel
1 Lt. Brown 1 1/2″ Circle – I used Creamy Carmel
2 White 3/4″ Circles – I used white card stock
2 Black 1/4″ Circles – I used Basic Black
1 Pink 1/4″ Circles – I used Pretty in Pink
6 Pink 1/8″ Circles – I used Pretty in Pink
3 small Flowers – I used Barely Banana
Adhere grass strip to bottom of envelope. Draw “paws” on 2 of the small Lt. Brown ovals and adhere them to the envelope. Adhere the 6 1/8″ Lt. Pink Circles and the 4 Lt. Pink Ovals on the 4 Lg. Lt. Brown Ovals. Put together the bunny’s face. Draw the whiskers and eye details on.
Adhere the 2 large bunny paws and the 2 bunny ears to the envelope.
Adhere the bunny’s head with pop up dots. Tie a ribbon around the base of the handle – I used lt. pink organza ribbon. I did not have an Easter stamp, so I printed “Hoppy Easter” on my computer and punched it out with the large (1 1/4″ x 2″ oval) and sponged the edges with lt. pink – I used (). Adhere the small lt. yellow flowers and small pink rhinestones in the center of the flowers. Adhere the pom pom for the bunny’s tail.
