Bunnies and Blossoms Banner for Kids

Welcome to the Bunnies and Blossom Banners for KIDS!!  

If you are looking for the Memories in Tyme Easter Blog Hop, please go HERE!

 Forty very talented crafty people have come together for a two day hop (Friday March 24th and Saturday March 25th) to showcase handmade banners that will be donated to the children at Pediatric Specialty Care. The hope of these banners is that they bring smiles to these children's faces and awareness of Pediatric Specialty Care to all those that hop along.  Here is a complete list of the blogs in Friday's hop.

And now, on to my project.  The first thing I do when I create is grab my Gypsy.
I found the Scalloped Eggs on Easter 2010 and sized them to 4 inches.  I cut them out in yellow cardstock.

Also at 4 inches is the regular Egg from Easter 2010.
I cut the eggs out of this beautiful paper from DCWV called The Painted Petals.

I wanted grass on the bottom of the egg so I grouped the grass from Easter 2010 sized at 1.94 inches with the egg shape.  By grouping the grass with the egg, the sides of the grass will be shaped to fit the egg perfectly.

I used two different bunny shapes from Easter 2010 sized at 1.90 and 1.59 and cut them out of shimmery pink cardstock.  I cut out the word "spring" from Art Philosophy at .88 inches and cut it out of the same cardstock.

I assembled the pieces and added Liquid Pearls for the bunny eyes.  I added some flowers by punching out two different sizes of circles, crinkling and inking them.  I used brads to fasten them together.

I glued pink ribbon bows to the top of each egg and strung the eggs together.  I punched out green circles and glued the letters on to spell out SPRING.

Thanks for stopping by today!!  These kids and their families LOVE these banners!!
