Hippity Hoppity!

Everyone attending my crop this weekend will receive a little treat along with their Stella Kit - a Bunny Bag!

Isn't she cute???? There's even a treat inside!
My sweet friend Emmy Rackley sent me the idea and directions. (THANK YOU EMMY!!)

I just love my buck-tooth beauty!

Would you like to make one of these? Here are the instructions - thanks to Emmy!
All pieces cut from the AP Cartridge:
Gift Bag - Fit To Page (White Daisy)
Shape6 (ornament) - 3 1/2" (Head) (White Daisy)
Oval2 - 1 3/4" (Outer Ears) - 2 (White Daisy)
Oval2 - 1 1/4" (Inner Ears) - 2 (Cotton Candy)
Oval2 - 1 1/2" (Feet) - 2 (White Daisy)
Oval2 - 3/4" (Inner foot pad) (Cotton Candy)
Circle1 - 1/2" (Inner foot dots) - 6 (Cotton Candy)
Circle1 - 1 1/2" (Cheeks) - 2 (White Daisy)
Heart1 - 1" (Nose) (Cotton Candy)
Circle1 - 1" (Mouth) (Cotton Candy)
1/4" x 1/2" Buck Teeth - 2 (White Daisy)

Here is Emmy's version! She did all white paper with Hollyhock ink. Love the whiskers - I just couldn't get mine to look good. I also didn't attempt the furry cheeks - afraid I'd mess those up too!

Great job Em! Thank you for sharing! 
*Additional Note: Emmy's inspiration came from Tracey Sanders. You've got to check out Tracey's blog - she has a lot of great artwork and ideas! I love how we all inspire each other!
Gotta go chase cotton tails now!

  2. Thanks Judy! They go together fairly quickly! Watch out - once you make one, they tend to multiply! LOL!

  4. CT's World - I don't see an email for you in your post or on your blog so I hope you get this - YES the FTP is for a 12x12 mat. Sorry I neglected to mention that. The actual size is 6.25". So if you only have the smaller Original Cricut, make it as large as possible (which won't be that much smaller) and make similar adjustments to your other pieces if necessary.

    I hope that helps!

  5. sorry about that! yes I just came back to find where I got the instructions from and found your reply - I just finished making one (I guessed it was 12x12 and that's what I used) ... having the cut sizes made it so easy to cut and put together so I just wanted to say thank you again! have a hoppy Easter!

  6. So cute. I'm a new consultant with Close To My Heart and love your posts. I'll have to try this for my granddaughters though I don't have any cotton candy paper yet I'm sure I can adapt. Thanks.

  7. Thanks Nancy! And Welcome to CTMH!

    You can use anything. Do you have any of the pink cardstocks - baby pink, blush, etc? What about the Lucy pink B&T paper? Or ink the white cardstock like Emmy did. Just about anything will work!

    Hope to see you at convention!

    1. Hi Ruth! The bag is on page 23 of the Art Philosophy book - the square key + the font layer/shift key. Hope that helps!
