Easter Bunny Banner + Pinspiration Friday


Check out this post and other crafty inspiration over at our new blog!



Oooo, have I told you how much we love Pinterest lately?  It seems like every time I jump on there, I find a whole new world of inspiration and a whole new crafting to-do list!  Today, we did a bright and beautiful Easter Bunny Banner!  But first, you can also view this post at our NEW site!  Hop on over!

From our {PINSPIRATION} list, we’ve done Hanging With My {PEEPS} T-Shirts and a Tutu Easter Basket, so let’s switch over to our handy-dandy Silhouette machine for a little paper crafting!

I created this colorful Easter banner for a friend of mine and it was {OH} so much fun to design!

First, find a few Easter egg cut files in the Silhouette Online Store.  And you know me, always looking for a deal!  If you look close, you will find a few files that include THREE egg designs instead of just ONE!

Second, locate the bunnies of your choice.  Again, I downloaded mine from the Silhouette Online Store (did I mention they are having a great sale on their Easter files?).

Once you decide on the size of your banner, start cutting those eggs out, one by one.  Make sure you cut them all the same size (or close to it).  The back layer is a solid egg shape with no design.  If you don’t want to download it, simply use the offset feature in the Silhouette Studio and shrink it down to an exact fit.  You’ll glue the white background to the color egg design.

Next, you’ll cut out your lettering in a contrasting color.  I chose white, then outlined the very edge of my cardstock with a purple sharpie for definition.

Once all of your eggs are assembled with the layers and lettering, think about putting a few embellishments on there for an extra special look.  I picked up some spring chipboard embellishments from the Dollar Tree, they’ve been in my stash for over a year, just dying to be used!

The two final steps are to punch holes in the desired locations and string some twine or ribbon through!  I chose the top of the eggs and bunny ears so they would all hang down in a row.  It’s also a little more difficult to align the hole punches on the sides, just something to keep in mind.
