Disemboweled Easter Bunny!??

OK, I just couldn’t resist this one…I was asked to make some Easter cards for a client using the Sweet Treat Cups and this is what I came up with. I thought is was a great idea until I started to assemble, and then almost wet myself as I started to think about what it looked like to me taking out the candy from the Bunny’s treat cup (or tummy). :) My husband came into my office and asked what I was so hysterical about, then I showed him and was laughing so hard I was basically crying…sometimes my sense of humor is just so wrong, OK so it is like that ALL the time. :)

The other reason why I thought this card was so funny was that my bunny looks high as a kite or drunk as a skunk. I still can’t keep it together as I look at this little guys face. I just think it is so funny…I think I will try and make him look a little more endearing for my client and not so inebriated.
I guess I should tell you what I used huh? I made this dude with nothing but punches. I used the large oval, small oval, 1/2″ circle, Crop-A-Dile, Heart-to-Heart, 1-3/4″ circle, 1-3/8″ circle, Modern Label punches, and the Circle Scissors Plus cutting system for this card. This little guy is a rough draft and needs some tweaking and shading which I will fix on my actual cards for the client and when I get those done i will show those in all their glory.
I LOVE using that little heart punched shape for his nose- I just used my Marvelous Marker to draw on his mouth and whiskers. I used a dimensional for the nose to which makes it look even cuter!! For the feet I used the Crop-A-Dile to punch out the feet pads, since I used the smallest hole on that tool I punched the holes directly onto the White large oval shape. When a Crop-A-Dile punches out paper it curls the small pieces of card stock. I thought it was easier to simply do a reverse and place a Pretty in Pink oval punch behind the White foot and then you have the little feet pads. I then punched out a 1/2″ circle punch for the larger piece of the foot pad.

Here is a better view of how the feet are layered to create the look i wanted. I used some snail adhesive and attached it to the treat cup. If you filled the cup with a soft pink candy it would look just like his belly would if it were a stuffed animal. Awe…

Of course what Bunny is complete without a little grass, and no this isn’t the grass that made him high…HAHAHA- sorry I couldn’t resist myself.
I made this with a piece of Old Olive card stock and my paper snips, easy peasy!

I used the modern label punch to complete his arms and curled them in to give some dimension to the little guy. Then at the very bottom is the trap door escape. We will see more of that in a minute.

Simply pull on the ribbon and it opens the trap door. It is nice since your recipient doesn’t have to destroy the card in order to get to the candy inside, which makes me feel A LOT better knowing that my creations won’t get destroyed so quickly. :) I used the Horizontal Slot punch for the ribbon to feed through and placed a Circle Designer Brad to hold the tab together.

Here is the inside view of the card front, I would place my Easter sentiment on the inside of the card since the Bunny takes up the majority of the front of the card.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project. I plan on including a tutorial for this fella when I have my ACTUAL Easter card completed and ready for delivery, so stay tuned for that.

  1. Maybe he just ate too much (all) of the candy, so he has a tummy ache. But even if he is inebriated, I think he’s cute!
