Rose Bunny Rabbit

Rose Bunny Rabbit (2)

A very early start for me as my little girl (15 months) has only just got her first tooth and is teething really badly. She has been awake on and off most of the night as I think most of the teeth are now coming through at the same time :-( 

While I’m up (and have a few minutes peace) I wanted to share my creation for the latest challenge that started yesterday over at Jellypark Friends and our theme this time is:

Happy Easter

I’ve used an adorable image Rose Bunny Rabbit to make an Easter gift for my little girl. It only has a few little chocolate in it as she is bit young to have a big egg, but she does like a little treat….don’t we all?

Rose Bunny Rabbit (1)

The basic shape is a tent card but I haven’t sealed the top and I made a little cellophane bag for the inside. I have used eyelets and ribbon to tie it shut so that it can be used over and over as a little treat bag.


  • Image: Rose Bunny Rabbit from Jellypark 
  • Colouring Medium: ProMarkers
  • DP: First Edition 6x6 ‘Spring Drop’ Paper pad
  • Card: DCWV Textured Card, Papermania Kraft card and Crafters Companion Classic Crest Solar White Car
  • Stamps: Alpha stamps and ‘Happy Easter’ Sentiment 
  • Dies & Punches: EK Success Border Punch
  • Embellishments: Paper Flowers, Ribbon, Eyelets, Viva Decor Cream Pearl Pen and Stickles Glitter Glue
