Pin the Tail on the Bunny Game

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:

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 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.

Happy New Year Card

Mary Pat here with you today.  I have an easy New Year’s Card for you today using some of my favorite Core cardstock – Chalk Core and Glitter Silk!  You can’t go wrong with a combination like that!


For my card I started with the Chalk Core and embossed it using an embossing folder.  I then lightly sanded it.  I then found an image from the internet and traced it on my Glitter Silk and cut it out.  I then used the Core Basics Vellum and embossed my sentiment using embossing powder.  To finalize things I added some pearls in matching colors.  Very quick and easy.  You can make several of these to send to friends and family!

I made this video  demonstrating the techniques of embossing (both dry and heat), and  sanding.

Thanks so much for joining me today.  I will see you soon.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

New Year’s Eve Hourly Countdown

December 18, 2014 by  
Filed under Core Blog, Core Projects, Gifts & Party, Winter Projects

New Year’s Eve is such a fun time to celebrate! My kids look forward to having fun activities to do on New Year’s Eve, keeping them busy most of the day up until midnight. Today I’m sharing this Hourly Countdown with you. Starting at 1pm, every hour on the hour you pull an activity out of the little bag/box and do what the paper says. It helps to pass the time, and makes for a fun day. Let me show you how to put this together for yourself.


New Year’s Eve Hourly Countdown Supplies:


Step 1. Trim your white cardstock to be 10″ x 4″. Save the thicker strips of the cardstock to use for the activity papers. Follow the instructions for the small bag on the punch board.


Step 2. Fold on the scored lines. Put adhesive on the flaps that need to be glued.


Step 3. Fold the bag together, sticking the adhesive together as you go.


Step 4. Using a digital die cutting machine and Glitter Silk cardstock, cut out your numbers.


Step 5. Glue your numbers to the front of your little bags.


Step 6. Use the leftover white cardstock strips to write your hourly activities. Roll them up.


Step 7. Place your rolled up papers in your bags, and use the clothes pins to clip the bags to the jute twine. Find the perfect place to hang your countdown.


Now you are all ready to ring in the New Year!

Step 1. I cut out the holly leaves and box using Core’dinations Spotted Tillie Dot and the Silhouette Cameo 2.  The berries were cut using the pretty Core’dinations Glitter Silk cardstock.  I used the 3D Holly Box (Silhouette ID #52658) and duplicated and shrank more of the holly to recreate the image on the card.

Step 3: I assembled the box and used liquid glue to secure the sides and bottom.  A combination of the Xyron and liquid glue helped me adhere all the parts of the box and card.


Step 4: I stamped the holly sentiment from the Joy’s Life Oh Christmas Puns stamp set onto a Core’dinations kraft card using red ink.
