Bunny Pattern - See Link in Step 1
White Acrylic Paint
Ribbon or String
Embellishments such as Jute and Flowers
STEP 1: Print the "Peep" Bunny Pattern onto cardstock and cut it out. The "Peep" bunny pattern can be found online here: http://www.danamadeit.com/2008/07/tutorial-peeps-bunny-bunting-and-door-hangers.html .
STEP 2: Pick out some of your favorite pattern papers and trace the bunny pattern on the backside of the papers (the side you don't want to show) and cut them out. I traced and cut out seven bunnies.
STEP 3: Ink the edges.
STEP 4: Take a small paper punch and punch out two shapes for each bunny you cut out for your banner using the same pattern papers as the bunnies. Adhere one punched out shape to the backside of each of the bunny’s ears as close to the tops of the ears as shown. This will help reinforce the pattern paper when you hang your banner. Note: I used an XS heart shape paper punch because I couldn't find my circle punch, but I think a circle punch would probably work better when punching the holes in the ears.
STEP 5: Punch holes at the top of each of the ears and decorate
the front sides of the bunnies.
STEP 6: And just because I never know what to do with all my numbers that I always have left over on my sticker sheets -- Select a few 0's, 6’s, 9’s or 8's from a sheet of American Crafts Thickers and cut out the circle parts of the numbers and paint them with white acrylic paint. Let them dry and then adhere them to the backside of the bunnies for tails as shown.
STEP 7: String a piece of ribbon or string through the holes on the bunnies' ears and your banner is complete. Note: I used some May Arts paper raffia and tied the ribbon at each of the holes so it would prevent the bunnies from sliding around on the banner and possibly tearing the ears.
Hang your banner and enjoy! Here is my bunny banner hanging on my office door. I hope you try making one of these for yourself or make one to slip into someone’s Easter basket.
