Scrapbook Accent Tutorial: Spring Bunny by Kim Watson

Dream Team Member, Kim Watson

Hello everyone,

With Spring just around the corner & Easter preparations underway, I thought I’d help you get a head start with a tutorial on how to make a cute stuffed bunny page accent for your next Easter and spring themed scrapbook page.

Stuffed Bunny tutorial:

Step 1

Step#1- Cut out a bunny shape from tissue paper. Leave bottom of ‘head’ on paper-fold.

Step 2

Step#2- Cut out patterned paper pieces for inside of ears & glue in place.

Step 3

Step#3- Pierce stitch-holes around edge of bunny shape.

Step 4

Step#4- Hand stitch with white thread.

Step 5

Step#5- Pull thread tight between ears, to gather slightly.

Step 6

Step#6- Before stitching completely closed, stuff lightly with cotton balls.

Step 7

Step#7- When completely stitched. Draw a cute face on your little Bunny.

Step 8

Step#8- Tie ears with blue bakers twine.

All done… a sweet 3D accent, perfect for my page of the childrens Easter hunt last year.

Try layering patterned paper under a die-cut title for more dimension, accented with color pops in the form of buttons.

By hiding Pink Bunny in a grassy patch along the bottom edge of the page, she anchors the photo cluster together and adds an unexpected flash of pink.

Thanks for stopping by, & Happy Thursday!
