Are you looking for a fun game to add to your Easter Egg Hunt this spring. How about a modern twist on the classic Pin the Tail on the Donkey? With just a few supplies the children can be playing Pin the Tail on the Bunny in no time.
Pin the Tail on the Bunny Supplies:
- Core’dinations Core Essentials Neutrals
- Coredinations Glitter Silk
- Electronic Cutter
- Rabbit Cut File
Step 1: Cut out your bunny shape. I used the rabbit from Cricut’s Pet Shop, but there is a similar Rabbit here in the Silhouette Store. To create a large shape simply place two 12×12 sheets right next to one another and cut. When done, use a piece of scrap paper to adhere the two halves together.
Step 2: Repeat for each of the layers in your image. My bunny had four layers, but you can use more or less depending on your cut file. I used a mixture of light brown and black neutrals, but you can use whatever colors you choose.
Step 3: Adhere your layers to form the large bunny design.
Step 4: Cut bow design from your favorite Glitter Silk color. I love the Glitter silk, it cuts beautifully, and gives that extra bit of sparkle without leaving glitter everywhere. Adhere to neck of bunny.
Step 5: Cut tails for your bunny from white Glitter Silk papers. I used a large flower shape, but you could use a circle or scalloped circle, and number each. You will need one tail for each of your games participants.
Step 6: Hang bunny on vertical surface at eye level for your players.
Step 7: Give each player one of the tails that has a little adhesive stuck on the back side. Blind fold the player and have them place the tail where they think it should be. The player who is the closest wins.
I hope you have fun creating this game for the little ones in your life.
Core’dinations makes it so easy to create cute cards with lots of texture in just a few minutes. This is really great if you have to make multiples of cards for parties, thank-you’s, etc. The Deco-Edge Kraft Cards and Envelopes are a real treat to use, not only for the trendy kraft color, but also with the fancy cut edge, half your work is already done. Kraft is also a great color choice, because it can be used for masculine and feminine projects alike.
Spring Meadow Kraft Card Supplies:
- Kraft Deco-Edge A2 Cards and Envelopes
- Sand-it Gadget
- Tim Holtz Classic
- Darice Dandelion Embossing Folder
- PunchBunch Mini Cherry Blossom Punch
- Imagine Crafts Pico Embellisher – Wedding Dress
Step 1. Cut a panel of blue cardstock to fit on the card front.
Step 2. Emboss the panel and sand the image with the Sand-it Gadget,
Step 3. Adhere to the card base.
Step 4. Add dimension to the flower buds, by add a dot of white with the Pico Embellisher, to each of the dots on the design.
Step 5. Punch small flower to layer over the flowers. Distress the flowers with a Sand-it Gadget.
Step 6. Finish the flowers with a small adhesive pearl in the center.
This is not my typical color palette, but I think it is a great combination for spring. Add the distressing, and it reminds me of a favorite pair of worn blue jeans.
Isn’t it so fun to make little treats for all the different holidays throughout the year? I think it is! Today I’m going to show you how you can make these Bunny Treat Buckets. They are quick to make, and turn out adorable!
Bunny Treat Bucket Supplies:
- Core’dinations Core Basics Pink Patterened Paper
- Core’dinations White Smooth Cardstock
- Mini Plastic Bucket
- White Candies
- Brown Ink Pad
- White & Black Buttons
- Baker’s Twine
- Circle Punch
- Electronic Die Cutting Machine
Step 1. Fill your little bucket with your candies.
Step 2. Cut out your bunny ears using an electronic die cutting machine. I used a tall skinny oval shape, and made the white ones slightly larger than the pink ones. Once cut out, ink all the edges.
Step 3. Adhere the pink ovals to the white ovals. Fold one ear down. I used a glue dot to keep the fold down.
Step 4. Hand cut the nose piece and punch a circle for the top of your can. Ink the edges of these with your brown ink as well.
Step 5. Use glue dots to layer your buttons for the eyes.
Step 6. Adhere the button eyes and nose to your can. Also, attached the bunny ears to the back of the can.
Step 7. Tie a baker’s twine bow on the front.
That’s it! You are ready to give anyone a fun little bunny treat. You could give these to your children, friends, teachers, etc. Doesn’t almost everyone love a little chocolate?
I am sure you have seen these darling “EOS” brand lip balm in the check-out area of the grocery store. Doesn’t the shape and bright colors of the lip balm remind you of Easter eggs? I decided they would make a darling little Easter gift for some co-workers. They were easy to create, and I found a bulk pack of EOS lip balm at my local Costco, which made this inexpensive! I love that.
Lip Balm Easter Baskets Supplies:
- Core Basics 12×12 Textured Kraft Cardstock (1 1/2 sheets will create 3 baskets)
- Core Essentials Brights Collection Cut and Emboss (yellow, purple and green; for flowers)
- White Decorative Edged Tags
- Darice Medium Flower Punch
- Small Circle Punch
- Darice Green and White Baker’s Twine
- Darice Green Paper Shred
- Silhouette Electronic Cutting Machine, using cut file Design ID #3198 “Woven Basket”
Step 1: Cut three (3) basket shapes using an electronic cutting machine. I did not resize the shape. I fit all three basket shapes onto one sheet of 12×12 Core Basics Kraft cardstock. I cut the handles of the baskets separately on a half sheet of kraft cardstock. Assemble the baskets using a strong adhesive. (I used my trusty hot glue gun!)
Step 2: Using craft punches, create elements for the flowers on the tags. You will need two flower shapes, two leaves and one circle for each tag.
Step 3: Assemble the tags. Stack two flowers, bend the leaves in the center to add dimension, add the circle punch to the flower centers. Stamp or hand write sentiment on tag. Attach tags to baskets using baker’s twine. Add green paper shred to baskets, and insert EOS lip balm!
An “EGG-cellent” inexpensive gift for the season!
Spring always gets me in the mood to make some new home decor. Today I have a cross to share with you that I made using Core’dinations supplies and is a perfect piece to put up for Easter (or year-round!).
Easter Cross Supplies:
- Silver Glitter Adhesive Cardstock
- Party Mixers Silver Pearl Rosettes
- Party Mixers Purple Grandeur Rosettes
- Hot Glue Gun
- Chipboard Cross
- Metal Leaf Die Cut
- Purple Petaloo Flowers
Step 1: Trace cross onto the back of the adhesive cardstock.
Technique Tip: Using some kind of liquid adhesive to attach cardstock to chipboard can be a nightmare! The glitter adhesive cardstock is perfect for not messing with that. It attaches quickly and smoothly and needs no time to dry! That’s a win in my book!
Step 2: Cut out your glitter adhesive cardstock and peel it back at the top.
Step 3: Attach the glitter adhesive cardstock to your chipboard cross.
Technique Tip: Start at the top of the cross and slowly work your way down attaching it to the cross. If you don’t get a great position at first pull it back up before you get too far. This cardstock peels up pretty easy initially – just be sure to push it down hard once you are happy with the position.
Step 4: Use a hot glue gun to attach the Party Mixer Rosettes. The rosettes are so sturdy and already assembled so they make this step really fast! No long hard struggles with assembling the rosettes.
Step 5: Die cut some vellum leaves.
Technique Tip: Core’dinations vellum cuts great in both a manual die cut machine and electronic die cutting machine. Just make sure that if you are using electronic you set the speed and depth to an appropriate setting for vellum
Step 6: Slide the leaves underneath the rosettes to hide the adhesive and attach them. Add small flowers as a final touch.
With all the colors available in glitter adhesive cardstock and rosettes you have a lot of options to make a beautiful piece of home decor that matches your own house perfectly!
