I enjoy making paper jewelry every once in a while - the fact that you can make something wearable from something so flimsy always delights me. Since Easter is just a few days away, I decided to make some paper bunny-in-an-egg necklaces for my sister to give to her friends (my fiance actually suggested I make these bunnies... he's getting crafty nowadays). Crafting this with a die-cutter is so easy it's not even funny.
- Silhouette Cameo- or any die-cutter
- White cardstock
- Patterned paper
- Mod Podge
- White / pink paint
- Template - downloadable at the end of the post, in a png format
Start by cutting your bunny template. If you're using the template, you may want to resize it first.
Now glue them together, layering them - for the bunny part I layered 6-7 pieces and for the egg part I layered 3 pieces (on each side). To let it dry flat, you may want to sandwich them in a heavy book (or a notebook, and then just sit on it, lol).
Paint your bunny parts - I painted mine white, but you may paint them any other pastel color you like. Might I suggest a light pink?
Now cut some patterned paper from the egg template, and then glue them on both sides of your bunny pendant. Apply a few layers of mod podge on each side, string them onto your necklace chains and you're done!
Of course you'd still want to be careful when wearing this - don't leave this near water or you'll be really sad.... Want more bunny / easter crafts? Check this link out.
I hope you're still having a superb week! And if you loved this, comment/share/pin, I'd appreciate it :) Have a great day friends!
