Happy Saturday, everyone! With Easter
just around the corner, I was inspired to make a rabbit-related
project featuring a little porcelain bunny my husband bought me on
our travels. I decided to make him his own little space, complete
with a few things that would make him happy. Here's how it came
I started with a GSL Deep Open Front 4.5 x 5.5 Shadowbox. It's available over at Alpha Stamps, as are all of the chipboard pieces I used in this project. It's a simple box that was assembled using tacky glue.
I used a leafy green paper from Craft Consortium's Herbarium collection to wallpaper the top section of the room. The lower wallpaper is a neutral green from a Tim Holtz paper pack. A coffee stir stick was painted a soft gray to serve as a chair rail between the two papers. I used scraps for the floor and ceiling of this tiny space. The exterior is a 49 and Market Tattered Garden paper.
I used painted wooden beads to foot the cubby. Using a Q-tip to hold the bead makes it super easy to paint and set to dry without messing up your fingers.
Wall decorations included some gray bunny images cut from a First Edition's Wild at Heart paper pad. The Peter Rabbit image is glued into a paper frame. My favorite is the Jessica Rabbit calendar I made from printed images. Easter is, of course, marked in red.GSL Simple1:24 Table which has a table top, eight leg sections and a base where the legs are inserted.
On to the basket which holds vintage dollhouse carrots. This GSL Tiny Picnic Basket – Half Scale comes with lots of layers to stack and glue together plus two tiny little handles that I chose not to use for this project.
Thanks for stopping by!
