Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | Bunny Hop – Big Bunny Bag
Welcome to the final part in this year’s Bunny Hop series, sorry this is a little later than planned, apparently, if it rains really hard here we don’t have reliable internet??? Anyway, today I have a bigger bag to share with you made with the Sweet Soiree DSP and Hello Easter stamp set I’ve been using for all the projects so far with a surprise appearance from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set and coordinating framelits.
As promised, this bag is much bigger than my previous projects and measures a whopping 10-3/4″ x 2″ x 2-5/8″ or 27.5 x 5 x 6.5cm! I designed it to hold one of the 80g Cadbury bunnies that are readily available in Australia and you can fit quite a few small eggs in there with them as well.
The bags use a piece of Sweet Soiree DSP that measures 10″ x 12″ and are a basic bag to make. I used my score board for these ones, but you could also make this on the Gift Bag Punch Board following the small bag directions.
* Score @ 1-1/4″ (on 12″ side)
* Score @ 2-5/8″, 4-5/8″, 7-1/4″ & 9-1/4″ (on 10″ side)
* Fold & burnish your score lines, cut up the score lines to the 1-1/4″ score line to make the tabs for the base, remove the smallest rectangle and assemble as usual.
I finished off the tops differently for each bag just to mix it up a little.
The striped bag simply had some holes punch at the top and a double strand of Smoky Slate Gingham ribbon tied in a bow to keep it closed, quick and easy 🙂
The pink bag has a topper made from Daffodil Delight cardstock 2-5/8″ x 6″, scored @ 3″. I scalloped both edges and ran it through the Big Shot using the Quilt Top Embossing Folder. I adhered it to the back of the bag only and the Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon keeps it closed.
The main embellishment on each bag is the largest egg from the Hello Easter stamp set. I stamped one in Marina Mist and the other in Powder Pink and used the smaller fill in stamps to add some colour.
I stamped the large and small flowers from Bloomin’ Love using the same colours and die cut them out with the coordinating Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits.
My flowers needed some greenery and the leaves from the Magical Mates Framelits were the perfect size. As I was already using my Big Shot it was no extra effort to cut some out of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.
I layered all my botanical elements using glue dots and added a Smoky Slate bunny and sentiment banner with dimensionals for even more texture. To finish off my eggs I added Rhinestones to the centre of each flower, it’s a bit over-the-top, but sometimes you just have to go for it and I do like my sparkle 😉
On the striped bag I simply adhered the egg at the top using more dimensionals and on the pink bag I used the reverse pattern on the leftover 2″ strip of DSP (from making the bag) to make a belly band and popped up the egg on that.
Well, that’s this years’ Easter series all wrapped up. There are lots of ideas to choose from to make your Easter treats a little more special, I hope one of them will be just right for you 🙂
