It's a Basket Case Blog Hop: Day 2: Bunny Doughnuts

Welcome back to day two of 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 http://youhadmeatscrap.blogspot.com/ you are in the right place. We will be showcasing Easter baskets and Basket Filler ideas for you and have giveaways along the way.

I am so glad that you have joined us for a second day of great Easter ideas.  Today, I decided to make a basket stuffer to share with you.  Who wouldn't love to get a pack of white doughnuts dressed up like Easter Bunnies! 


To make these, you will need to start with the individual 4 packs of doughnuts.  I used the Little Debbie Cakes brands.  You get 6 packs of 4 for $1.99 and they do not have any writing on the front of the packages. 
You will turn these over and hot glue a medium sized puff ball to the back of your bunny.  When attaching the items, be sure to not smash them down, because you don't won't to crush any of your doughnuts.

Now, you are ready to make the cuts for the front of the doughnuts.  For the face, I used the Create a Critter bunny rabbit and just cut the head off of the body.  You will need to cut the bunny at a size of 3.56W x 4.76H and use all of the layers to complete the face.  For the arms and feet, you will need ovals cut from George and Basic Shapes.  You will need two of each cut as follows: arms at a size of 1.09W x 1.47H and feet at a size of .84W x 1.14H.  Once these were cut, I added pink lines with a pen and some pink chalk to them.

Now, you will just need to hot glue these onto the doughnuts to finish them up.  You could also add additional embellishments if you wanted to liven them up more, like a bow on the ear, ribbon around the neck, google eyes, etc.  I liked the simple look of them and decided to leave them as they were. :)
Now, on to the blog candy.  Remember, I am giving away the Cricut Lite Cupcake Cartridge to one follower that will be randomly chosen from all comments from today and yesterday's blog hop posts.  To be elgible, you need to be a follower and leave a comment on this post.  Be sure to leave a comment on the Day 1 post for a second chance to win.  I will 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.  Thanks so much for hopping along with us and a special Thank You to Rhonda for hosting this blog hop also.
