Bunny Cubby

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 together.

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. 

 The little table I used is a GSL Simple1:24 Table which has a table top, eight leg sections and a base where the legs are inserted.

The legs are glued together in pairs to make them sturdy. Those get glued into the table base. Once the glue dried, the table got painted and set aside.


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. 

Here it is finished and painted, along with a few other props I made for the cubby. The bowl is a ¾ inch wooden bowl painted orange. 

I added a crocheted trivet under a mini porcelain teapot and added a couple of polymer clay slice lady bugs.

Thanks for stopping by!
