This week we are flaunting the little bunny with present on page 27 of the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge.
For my project, I made a cute little Easter basket for a Red Hat Lady. I found a great tutorial at SplitCoastStampers.The base of the basket starts with one piece of 4 3/4" x 7 3/4" piece of cardstock. One piece of 1" x 11" piece of cardstock is needed for the basket handle. You will need one 1 1/2" x 15" of patterned paper to decorate the basket and one 7/8" x 11" of patterned paper to decorate the handle. See the tutorial for the complete directions! I used the Martha Stewart doily lace edge punch on a piece of the purple paper and glued it around the top edges of the basket. To secure the handles of the basket, I used Red Hat Society brads. The little bunny is cut at 2 3/4 inches using a lavender piece of K&Company Designer Mat Pad. I used an Action Wobble on the bunny and placed it on the basket. It is so cute when it wobbles. Here is a close up view of the Wobble and my cute little brad.
For my second project, I chose to make a card to go along with the basket.
These projects are my first time to use the Birthday Bash cartridge. I was pleasantly surprised to see a cut for a crown! This is the card/tag cut on page 47 and is cut at 5 3/4 inches. For the remaining cuts, I used the Layer 1 and Layer 2 on page 56 cut at 6 inches. First I tried 5 3/4" (same as card size) but it was too small, so I used a size larger. I trimmed off a bit of the red check paper for a better fit. Hmm, guess I need to learn to use a Gyspy! Of course, Red Hat Ladies like bling! I added little red hearts which was a Valentine clearance, Recollections gemstones, and Diamond Stickles. For the inside of the card, I used the phrase feature on page 56 to cut Royal Wishes at 3 inches. "For you" phrase is found on page 34 and is cut at 2 1/4 inches. This is photo of the inside of the card. I hope you enjoy my projects!
