B is for Bunny

B is for Bunny
She's always hip-hopping,
Her button nose twitching,
Her long ears flip-flopping!
   ~ Tanya Lee Stone

 

I love how happy this little critter is with its sly, crooked smile and makeshift flag. What a great idea to just tie some fabric scraps to a wooden stick and wave it in a one-bunny parade. Maybe I'll do that around the living room and make the neighbors talk. They already know I'm one sandwich shy of a picnic.

 

 

Whoa Howdy! Ya'll are rocking our B for Bodacious Recipe Swap! We've got some Bingo playing Bouncing Ballerina Bears – and all other things that start with B – I love it!

So . . . I present to you . . . B is for banner waving bunny belly with a button sun. Now, I bet I'm the only one who pays a tribute to bellies – but check out the cute one on my bunny.

 

To make the glittery circle frame:

  • I covered my tiny polka-dot paper with Sookwang double sided adhesive sheet.
  • Then I sprinkled it with micro-fine transparent glitter so the paper would still show underneath.
  • This is where it gets really fun. I ran the glittery paper through the die cut machine with two sizes of the circle die cuts at the same time, one inside the other.

I was inspired to make this little scene in a circle by JoAnn Basile's darling card here. She's got a wonderful tutorial for you to follow. I made my scene just a little differently – you might try it this way if you're challenged like me with cutting around circles.

Lay out the background of your scene first.

  • Very loosely, I adhered my fence and layers of grass on my Chevron paper with repositional adhesive.
  • Then I ran the whole thing, all together, through the die cut machine so all the layers were perfectly trimmed.
  • You can then pull the layers off one by one and adhere them again with pop-up dimensional adhesives to add dimension to the scene.
  • Then, adhere your circle (or other shape) frame with pop-up dimensional adhesive.
  • I wanted my bunny ears, banner flag and clouds to hang over the circle frame, so I added them last.
