Spring is here which means Easter is right around the corner! Do you decorate for Easter? That’s a silly question. If you’re a crafter, of course you decorate for Easter!
This bunny banner is so adorable and so easy to create. Cricut Design Space has lots of images that are perfect for a fun banner. But of course, I had to put my own creative touches to it.
After all the pieces are cut, put them together prior to adding adhesive. I like to do this to avoid placing adhesive to the wrong side (ask me how I know this) or getting glue splotches on your finished project. This also gives me a chance to see how I want to put it together – do I want to change anything?
For instance, the carrots seemed a little flimsy to put on a banner so I added an offset to them. More changes were made to the carrots by dry emboss small polka dots and using foam adhesive to raise them up a little.
The bunnies are adhered directly to the egg shapes. Once everything is adhered, two holes were punched onto each piece using a Crop-a-Dile and strung into a banner using two different spring shade ribbons to string them all together.
To add some variety, wooden beads were added between the eggs. You can certainly paint the beads to add more color but I chose to keep them natural.
I’ll be honest, the banner was a little hard to photograph, but you can certainly see how cute it is.
Cardstock used for the banner: Pop Tone Orange Fizz (which is quickly being one of my favorite colors to use), Granny Smith Green, Olive Green, Pastel Pink, Jet Stream, Yellow, Wedding Cake White (for the bunnies), Cougar Smooth White (for the carrot offsets), and Pop Tone Black Licorice.
Other products used: Wooden beads from the Dollar Tree, orange & lt. blue ribbons from my stash (wrap the ends together with tape to create a “needle” tip for easy threading!), polka dot embossing folder, foam adhesive and liquid adhesive.
There is such a great color selection of cardstock on the CutCardStock website that it was easy to grab what was needed to create this cute and colorful banner. What will you make this year for Easter?
