Jelly Bean Bunny!

Hello stampers! What a difference a day makes... yesterday sure was nice change from our usual snowy days! I actually got to wear my flip flops and a spring jacket last night. Then I woke up to a blizzard, I was in such shock... I really thought that Old Man Winter had gone into hibernation and spring was to show us her beautiful glory... no such luck, that's what I get for buying new flip flops yesterday! Hopefully this is the last of it, the snow was finally starting to melt and now we have another two feet. Enough weather talk, it's depressing me and I have an adorable share for you today!!

I made these super cute Easter Bunnies with punches. I had a craft sale last weekend and these were one of the items that I was selling - I got a lot of compliments on how stinkin' cute they were!

I'll sum up the punches and framelits I used in case you wanted to make some for yourself. All supplies are from Stampin' Up! For the legs I used the 1/8" Cello Bags and filled them with jelly beans, but you could use Smarties, M&M's, or any other small candy that will fit in the bags.

I used the Oval Framelits to make the bunny body. I cut the largest (scallop) oval and cut it in half, the 3 largest for the bunnies face (I cut 2). I cut two to use on the back to cover the glue on the back of the bags (legs). Both were cut with Crumb Cake cardstock - I made some with Whisper White also.

Now for the punches:
4-Extra large oval punches for the bunnies ears and feet (Crumb Cake)
2-Large oval punches for the inside of the ears (Primrose Petals)
2-1 1/4" Circles punches (Crumb Cake) -and add some whiskers with a Black Stampin' Write Marker.
1-Small heart punch for the nose (Primrose Petals)
2-3/4" Circle punches for the eyes (Whisper White)
2-1/2" Circle punches for the Iris of the eyes (Baked Brown Sugar) -you can use any colour you like.
2-1/4" Circles from Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack for the eye pupils (Basic Black); 6 for toe pads on feet (Primrose Petals).
2-1" Circle punches for feet (Primrose Petals)
1-Word Window punch for lips (Primrose Petals) -I cut it in half and just had a tiny bit showing.
1-Petite Petals punch for flower (Crushed Curry ink on Whisper White) -you can use any colour.

Use a glue gun to attach the 1/8" cello bags to the Largest Oval Framelit (cut in half) - add more glue to the back and add the other half to secure the legs in place. I added a dimensional to the top to secure the upper part of the diecut. Then I added the 3rd largest Oval Framelit to the back to make it all tidy on the back. I used a glue gun to attach the feet also - you can add a white pompom to the back for a tail if you want. I hope you like these adorable bunnies, they are super cute and easy to re-create. You can also adjust to use punches that you already have. I will be giving some of these out at my class in April - so hopefully my class attendees will like them!

Here is another one I made, but in white! It's the same process and materials, I just used the second largest oval framelit for the body!!

Have a great day, bundle up and stay warm :)
