I'm so pleased to be invited to join the Cuttlebug Mania team as their Guest Designer for the 'Make a Project with the Easter Bunny' challenge. My project is a one sheet bag that I've decorated with an Easter rabbit and filled with small Easter eggs.
I'm entering the Cardz 4 Gals 'Flora or Fauna' challenge and the Dies R Us 'Anything Goes' challenge. The card and ribbon are from my snippets drawer so I'm also heading into the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Stampendous 'Joyous Easter' stamp
Versafine Vintage Sepia ink

Snippets of brown pearlescent card, green textured card. pink, black, white and gold matt card.
I scored down each long edge of the A4 paper at 2½ inches and down each short side at 4½ inches, and folded along the score lines a few times to make them flexible. With the patterned side of the paper facing down and the paper in portrait position I brought the long narrow panel over the middle panel and folded it back diagonally. This was repeated on all corners. (If these instructions don't make sense, they can be found in the 'Everyone Needs A Hougie 2' booklet.) I decorated the bag before the final assembly as I find this easier.
I die cut and embossed the Garden Weave from green textured card, trimmed it slightly so it was the same width as the bag and attached it to the front. I die cut the Easter Rabbit from brown pearlescent card, the ears from pink card, nose from black card and bow from gold card before attaching them to the bag. I punched six daisies from white card and three small circles from gold card to make the double layer daisies which were attached to the lower edge of the bag. The bag was assembled by gluing the sides and I punched two small holes in the top. I stamped the sentiment onto white card before die cutting and embossing the tag. To finish I fastened the bag with white ribbon, attached the tag and tied the ribbon in a bow.
