THE cutest Easter Bunny on the planet!

For my last scrap booking class, I wanted to do an Easter layout -- so I searched the web for some cute new Easter ideas and ran across this adorable Easter Bunny and the little "hatching chicks" on Pinterest.  Just too cute not to share, so here they are!

The bunny is made with a huge pile of punches and Basic Grey, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, and Very Vanilla cardstock.  Here is the list of punches: the head is the ornament punch, the body is the 1 3/4" round punch, ears -- large oval punch and retired small oval punch, feet -- large oval punch, hands -- large petal from the petals builder punch, cheeks -- current small oval punch, eyes -- current small oval and the owl punch, nose -- owl punch.  The little chicks are the 1 1/4" scallop punch with the owl punch used for the eyes, and the beaks a folded triangle of pumpkin pie card stock punched with a petal tip from the petals punch.  For their little tufts of fluff on their heads, I took a little piece of Daffodil Delight seam binding and attached it to the back, then unraveled the end to look fluffy and trimmed it to the look I wanted.  The egg shells -- punch some wide ovals out of Melon Mambo, Wisteria Wonder, and Bashful blue card stock that has been pre-embossed with the square lattice folder.  Cut them free hand in a zig zag pattern and stick the little chick inside one of the halves. 

For those amazingly sparkly Easter eggs, I used one of my favorite Glitter Magic techniques -- simply apply the Big Shot multipurpose adhesive sheets to your favorite designer paper -- here I used the Tea for Two pack from the Spring catalog -- punch out your eggs using the wide oval punch and current small oval punch, burnish the egg a little with a bone folder so your adhesive sticks really well, peel off the adhesive backing and dump dazzling diamonds glitter to the sticky surface, shake off the excess and you have a lovely sparkly Easter egg.

The title is made with the Lovely Letters alphabet and postage stamp punch.  Easy peesy.

Enjoy your Saturday, and if you haven't seen all the fun specials going on right now, be sure to check them out on my website -- just click the link below. :)
