Bunny Come a Callin'

Hey Y'all,
I have been out of commission with my machine for a while now. I needed a new cutting strip and had to wait for it to come to cut paper again. No sense cutting something that won't cut all the way through the paper right? Anyhoo, I was online and saw a darling bunny glass where the cheeks  and the teeth are on the side of the cup and this idea popped into my head. I was dying to get it made before Easter. So here it is and it is so simple and quick you might have time to whip up a few for that surprise invite to someones house for Easter Dinner.

 I used the mason jar snowman head to make this cutie from Santa's Sweets SVG Kit.
Open the white_svg, release compound path and un-group the white_svg. Delete the slit for the nose. Now regroup, cut and assemble as you normally would. Don't put the hat on yet. Using the ears from Bunny Hop SVG Kit size the ears to W 2.600 x 3.432 H.  I only used one set of them so it would be easier to curl them a bit with the dowel. I used just the ears but it would look cute with feet or even the arms as well.  Size the inside of the ears to W 1.399 x 1.938 H. Glue the inside of the ear in place.  Cut the flaps on the white outside of the ears off with scissors. You will not need them as I glued the ears to the brim of the hat. Use a pencil or a wooden dowel to slightly curve the ears down. Finish assembling the hat as Mary instructs. I added Tim Holtz Vintage Papers ink to the edges for a weathered look. I used several paper flowers from my stash and a My Minds Eye Brad for the center.

The teeth are made using a rectangle. I double clicked on it and added an extra node in the center bottom, bring that node up to the center of the rectangle then add and extra node on either side of your center node to make it square. Add a couple of extra nodes at the bottom of each tooth so the teeth are square at the bottom as well. Glue your teeth to the top of the scoreline for the lip of the jar. Hot glue two 1 inch pom balls over the teeth and to make the cheeks. I added pearlescent chalk for some rosy cheeks. Then put a glittered Doodlebug enamel dot for the nose. The eyes are black enamel dots, then I used my Sakura Jelly roll black pen to draw on eyelashes and some eyebrows.

The ribbon is something I had in my stash but I believe it is from Stampin up. I found that glittery Rhinestone at Joann's on a shopping trip with my girlfriend.  We split the pack so I cannot tell you what the brand name was. Tie the ribbon and use a 3d zots to adhere the bow to the jar. Don't forget to do the same on the back with a 1 inch or lager pom for your tail. Fill the jar with a goodie and your done!

The perfect quick gift to take to your hostess. I hope you like this little guy, or make it a girl with more flowers and feathers or whatever you like. Mary has a free bow on the freebies page that would look darling on this jar, or use the one in Bunny Hop SVG Kit. There are also many 3d flowers from Mary's wonderful files you could use as well. Just have fun with it and let your imagination go crazy! To all my wonderful readers thank you. Have a blessed Easter and Happy Craftin' Y'all!  Blessings Sharalyn
