Easter Bunny Shadow Box
By: Mary Jo Johnston
Here comes Peter Cottontail, hoppin’ down the bunny trail…. =)
Easter is just around the corner! And, guess what?! There are scrap supplies in your kitchen! It’s a little secret I just discovered when I was thinking about what kind of cookies my twins and I were going to make for the holiday.
I noticed this cute little Easter Bunny cookie cutter (aka new scrapbooking template!) and immediately my mind started wandering to all of the cute papers I could use to cut out little Easter Bunnies.
Go grab these supplies and you can make one of these adorable shadowboxes, too!
Assorted Peppermint Creative Patterned Papers (printed on cardstock)
I used the following:
Hoppy Easter Papers|
Soopa Sunburst Papers: Her Collection
Color Coded Papers: Paper Collection
Sweet Cheeks Papers
Daditude Kit Papers
Rainbow Joy Papers
Miso Funky Papers
Shadowbox (I used the 7 Gypsies Shadowbox Tray)
Cookie Cutter or Easter Themed Template
White Fuzzy Pom Poms
Hoppy Easter Elements Kit
Easter Themed Brad or Embellishment
How I did it:
Print your papers onto cardstock or use all those small pieces of scraps you’ve been saving!
Trace the cookie cutter on the wrong side of the paper.
Cut around the traced image. Repeat as many times as necessary to fill the spaces inside your shadowbox.
Apply a small amount of glue to lower center of your bunny and adhere a small white pom pom for the tail.
Adhere all of your images to the inside of the shadowbox.
Print a scalloped circle, word art tag and doodled border from the Hoppy Easter Elements Kit; cut and adhere to shadowbox as shown. Embellish with an Easter themed brad or accent.
Hang your new Easter décor for everyone to see! Happy Easter!
