The Easter bunny comes to visit

Happy Easter to everyone.
Being my son Larsen's first Easter I wanted to create a fun layout that captured this special occasion. I designed a large bunny using card stock and then finished the layout with some cute embellishments. If you would like to make the bunny your self just follow my simple directions.
Here is my layout

Step 1
Cut out your pieces- two large circles 14 and 9 cms in diameter and two small ovals for the feet. Then cut out the outside of the ears, then using coloured card or pattern paper make the insides of the ears and two small circles for the pads on the feet. Make sure your ears are not too long by using a full 12 x 12 sheet and piecing your bunny together temporarily.

Step 2
Ink all of your pieces, I have used some pink ink.

Step 3

Turn your pieces over and using this double sided tape, stick your pieces together, again keep checking that your bunny fits onto the 12 x 12 paper.

Step 4

For the feet use some foam tape to give a raised effect and then place 3 pink brads in a semi circle for the toes. Cut 3 very fine black strips from black cardstock and a small black triangle with rounded corners for the nose then using the foam tape place the whiskers under the nose and bend into shape. For the eyes I have used two black full stops from a thickers packet. Draw in the mouth with a black pen like this one.

For the layout I have used white, pink and blue bazzil. Also this easter egg ribbon from Carolees Creations. Some blue flowers from Green Tara. Black letter stickers from doodlebug and Kaiser craft rhinestones.. Again for the centre of the flowers I have used some fullstops from these black vinyl thickers.

I would love to see what you come up with for your Easter layouts in the gallery.

Happy scrapping !
