Easter Bunny – By Yvonne @ Edmonton Store

  

  

Here’s what you will need        

Here’s what you’ll do

Cover cardboard  with green tissue paper, taping on the bottom.  Cut 4 strips of non woven white 7 ½ ” wide and 19 ½” long for the body.  Cut 4 strips of non woven white 6” wide and 19 ½” long for the head.  Cut 3 strips 6” wide  white  tulle  19 ½” long for the body.  Cut 3 strips 6” wide white tulle 19 ½” long for the head.  Cut 3 strips  6” wide  white  tulle  19 ½” long for the tail.

Draw some bunny ears on white paper, making the left ear longer, as that will have a fold on the top.  Add some extra length at the base so you can tuck them into the space between the head and body. 

Cut out the paper ears and glue pink tissue to the center .

Draw one bunny foot on the paper and cut out 2.  with your paper folded in half to give you a left and a right foot.  Cut out some flowers from the tapestry tissue paper and glue these onto the corners of the green base.

For the head and body, alternate the non woven and tulle layers The tail uses only tulle, so will have 3 pieces.

Fold your layers into an accordion shape along the short edge, giving you a nice full fan.  Tie the center with a twist tie. 

Snip about an inch into the edges, through all the layers on both the head and the body., about ¼ “ apart

Fluff the layers of the fan apart, the tulle will give the fabric a little more body.

Place the three pieces  together and hot glue the tail to the body, and the head to the other side.  Fold the sides of the ears in a little to help make the ears stand up and glue the base into the rabbit head and body.  Fold over the top of the left ear.

Tie a bow with the organza ribbon in front of the ears.

Cut two eyes from the black faux jewel ribbon,   nose from the pink .Glue  into position on the face.  Hot glue the feet to the base of the body.  Add small pieces of shred and hot glue into position.  All he needs now is a carrot!

What You Will Do

Cut the bottom off the bags at the fold. Draw a petal shape on 1 of each size bag. Stack the bags and cut out the petals. Fold a crease lengthwise on each petal for definition. Using a hot glue gun, glue the larger petals, overlapping the points at the center. Do the same with the smaller petals, gluing to the center of the larger flower. Stagger the small petals and hold them up a bit until the glue sets.  Cut a small square of jewel ribbon and glue to the center of each flower.
