I made them with the Ranger sticky backed canvas, an amazing product that you can do so much with. Using canvas means they will be supple and so you wont have to worry about them becoming bent while wearing them.
Making them is very simple.
I made myself a template using a scrap piece of card. I drew around 2 round objects (I used my round die set) one smaller than the other to make the body. I then drew and bunny ear and drew around that to make my second ear. I glued the ears onto my bunny body to finish the template.
Then I cut a strip of the sticky backed canvas, using the template to judge how wide I needed it. I then folded the strip in half bottom to top, peeled off the backing paper and stuck the two halves together. If you start at the fold and smooth up, you wont get any bubbles.
Using my template I drew my bunnies and cut them out.
I used the Cosmic Shimmer paints in pastel colours to paint both sided of my bunnies.
When dry I drew around the outside with a crayon.
I decided not to draw any features on my bunnies but just added a little bow and a pompom from a pompom trim I had for his tail. You can add what ever you have to finish them off.
I added a broach back to the back using a small strip of the sticky backed canvas with a little PVA glue to add extra strength. If you don't have any broach backs then a safety pin works just as well
I made my bunnies into little broaches but you could put them onto slide backs, key-rings or on cards too. There are all sorts of ways to use them.
Here are the products I used from the shop-

Cosmic Shimmer paint -
I hope you like my little bunnies and will have a go yourself.
Until next time Happy Easter
