It's a Basket Case Blog Hop: Day 1: Bunny Easter Bags

Welcome to the It's a Basket Case Blog Hop hosted by Rhonda of http://scraphappenswithrhonda.blogspot.com/.  If you have just stumbled upon my blog and would like to play along, please visit Rhonda to start.  If you have arrived here from you had me at scrap  you are in the right place.  We will be showcasing Easter baskets and Basket Filler ideas for you and have giveaways along the way.

For today's project, I have a cute Bunny Bag to share with you.
For these bags, I used the following Cartridges: Storybook, Sentimentals, Create a Critter and George and Basic Shapes.  You will need the following cuts to complete this:
Storybook Marquee: For the bunny base (cut twice) at size 6.2W x 8.86H
George and Basic Shapes Ovals: You will need 4 for the base of ears cut at 2.65W x 3.59H, two in pink for the inner part of ears cut at 1.96W x 2.65H, 2 for feet cut at 2.65W x 3.59H, and two welded together for the cheeks at a size of 1.61W x 2.18H
George and Basic Shapes Circles: You will need these for the inner circles on the feet 2 at 1.07Wx 1H and 6 at .57W x .53H
Create a Critter heart: For the nose cut at a size of 1.26W x 1H
Sentimentals Scallop Circle: This will be used for the hands.  You will hand cut sections of 4 scallops for each hand.  Cut the circle at a size of 2.72W x 4.88H

You will also need google eyes for the face and I have used a small carrot piece and bow from Hobby Lobby to embellish my bunny.
Next, I layed all of the pieces out to see how they would fit and used a pencil to trace around each area so I would make sure and glue the objects correctly in place.


Now, I outlined everything in black and drew the whiskars.  Then, I used hot glue to attach everything to the front of the bunny and I glued a large pom pom to the back piece of the bunny.

Next, I got a white paper lunch sack and cut it to the size that I wanted the inner bag to be.  Once this was ready, I simply used hot glue to put the front and back on my bunny.

I made three of these in total for the my sisters for Easter.

Now for the blog candy.  I will be giving away a Cricut Lite Cupcake Cartridge.  To be elgible for the giveaway, be sure to become a follower if you are not already and leave a comment on this post.  You can also leave a comment on tomorrow's post for an additional chance to win.  I will use random.org to select a winner and announce the winner on Monday, April 18th.

Your next stop on the hop is My Fantabulous Life .  Go over and see what she has in store for you.  Remember to stop back by tomorrow for a great idea for a basket stuffer I have to share with you all.

I am also linking these up to the bunny challenge at Jen's Craft Corner here: http://www.jenscraftcorner.com/
