Craftwell Bunny Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! 

Welcome to the Craftwell Bunny Blog Hop!

I'm so excited to be a part of the spring blog hop and so glad you will be hopping along with us today.  So please, grab a cup of coffee or tea, sit down, relax and enjoy the hop!  Oh and get ready for some really amazing projects and some fun (and maybe even a giveaway! ;) )

Originally, I had a totally different project done and ready for the hop.  But then I saw the new Sweet Peeps Collection by Sheri McCulley over at Lettering Delights and thought these cute little peeps would be perfect for a Bunny Blog Hop!  With my eCraft at my side, this project was fast and easy to cut out and assemble. 

How adorable are those bunnies, butterflies, and chick?! 

The boxes are from the One-Piece Boxes SVG Kit by SVGCuts.  The pink box is box 3 and the blue box is box 1 from the kit.  I cut the box and accent pieces at the kit's regular size and assembled them together. 

The banners on the front are made from the Pennants SVG's at Lettering Delights.  The letters are stickers from We R Memory Keepers Cotton Tail Scrapbook Pad. The pennants are folded over twine and I added a bow to both ends. 
Everything pictured above is from the Sweet Peeps Cut It's Collection by Sheri McCulley at Lettering Delights

Both of these bunnies were cut out at 3 1/2 inches high.  The balloon is actually attached to the bunny in the svg, so after cutting it out with my eCraft, I cut off the balloon tie with my scissors and adhered a piece of twine wrapped wire on the back of the bunny and balloon. 

Everything in the above picture is also from Sweet Peeps, except for the kite which is a free svg at SVGCuts! The kite has wire attached to the back and the end of it is placed underneath the flower so the kite would appear to be flying in air.  I also added twine to the bottom of the kite tail and attached it to the bunny's wrist.

I sized the bunny and chick-a-dee to 3 1/2 inches high also, so it would be the same as the other box.  Both boxes have one flower on top from Sweet Peeps  (the file has 3 flowers in one svg but I just ungrouped all of them and deleted the other two flowers in SCAL3.  This way, I only cut out what I needed.)  I added pop-dots underneath each flower layer to give it some dimension.  I re-sized the butterflies and caterpillars smaller so they wouldn't be too large on the boxes. 

Hope you liked my Spring Bunny (and Chick-a-dee) boxes! 

Enjoy the rest of the hop!
