All it takes is some pretty paper to create a beautiful framed masterpiece this Easter!
I have a huge weakness for scrapbook paper. I rarely scrapbook these days, but my love of paper has never wavered! I try to stay away from it at the craft stores, but every once in a while it gets the best of me, and I take a little peak. Lucky I did because I came across these gorgeous pink gingham, vintage floral, and wood plank papers! I thought paired together I could make the cutest little Easter decor.
I couldn’t be happier with how my paper bunny turned out! And it goes to show, even the most basic of craft supplies can create something so pretty!
You actually only need 2 sheets of scrapbook paper for this projects. The gingham and the florals are actually front and back of the same 12×12 scrapbook paper (from My Mind’s Eye). The wood plank paper is 8.5×11″ and is the Hobby Lobby brand.
You will also need my egg and bunny template.
Print the egg and bunny template and cut out the egg. Trace it on the back of the wood plank paper and cut out.
Cut out the bunny from the egg and trace it on the remainder of the floral paper but on the gingham side and cut out.
Center the egg on the 8×10″ gingham paper then the bunny on the egg and adhere together with glue or double-sided tape.
Now we just need to embellish our new little friend!
To make a pom pom, wrap yarn around a ruler or serving fork many, many times.
Pull the yarn off of the ruler and wrap the center with a piece of yarn and tie it in a knot.
Cut all the loops above and below where you wrapped and knotted the yarn.
Trim the pom pom until all of the ends are the same length and glue it to the bunny.
