When I first saw these Sizzix Plastic Flower Domes from the Susan Tierney-Cockburn collection, I was in love! There are so many possibilities of things to make with these, and I knew that I could make an adorable 3-dimensional bunny decoration with them.
To make the little white bunny, I made a Sizzix sandwich with a Sizzix Standard Cutting Pad, the Sizzix Movers & Shapers Base Tray, the Sizzix Movers & Shapers Mini Bunny die, a piece of white card stock, and the other cutting pad on top. I rolled it all through my Sizzix Big Shot.
I used Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue to glue a small white puffball onto the bunny's tail.
Next I made the green grass. To do this, I used some light green crepe paper and the Tapered Fringe Decorative Strip die. I made my Sizzix sandwich using the Extended Multipurpose Platform open to Tab 1, a Decorative Strip Cutting Pad, the die with the cutting side up, the crepe paper and another Decorative Strip Cutting Pad. I rolled this sandwich through my Big Shot, and then had two long pieces of grass.
I used Aleene's Clear Gel Tacky Glue to glue the grass into the bottom inside of my plastic dome. The glue dries perfectly clear, so you couldn't see the glue at all. I used 3-4 layers of grass to give it more dimension.
I cut a piece of white Sizzix Little Sizzles mat board to the size that I wanted my finished decoration to be, cut a piece of striped pattern paper to the same size, and adhered it to the mat board. I adhered my bunny down to the center of the paper.
I used Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue to glue my clear plastic dome to the center of my striped paper.
Then I took another piece of pattern paper (yellow), used the second largest oval die in the Sizzix Framelits Ovals die set, and die cut an oval in the center of my yellow paper. To use Framelits in the Sizzix Big Shot, use the Magnetic Platform. Layer on one Standard Cutting Pad, the paper, your die and another Standard Cutting Pad. I placed the cut out oval over my clear dome, so that it fit perfectly, then glued down the yellow paper. I used scissors to trim down the yellow paper to the size of the mat board.
To make my Easter decoration stand up straight, I cut a long thin rectangle out of mat board, and glued it to the back center of the mat board so that the bottoms of both pieces were even. Now my decoration had a stand just like a picture frame!
I love how this cute project turned out, and I'm really excited to use these plastic flower domes for more fun projects!
