Hop over to Easter

Melanie is hosting our BBTB2 challenge this week.  The theme is to put a bunny/rabbit on your card, layout or project.   I found this adorable bunny couple on A Child's Year and made a vintage looking burlap flag for my front yard.   I cut out the bunnies at 11.5" from card stock and used the negative as a stencil for painting on the burlap (painting over where the tail would go).   Then I sandwiched cotton batting in the middle and sewed around the project.   I wasn't sure how to decorate it without going overboard, in the end, I put down a handful of vintage buttons (picking out the dark ones) and hot glued them on as they were.  I decided they were a girl and boy and made a tie and necklace to add bling.  I got this inspiration from Pinterest, but the button part is my idea.  Several have said this flag is a knock off from Pottery Barn.

Hop on over to the BBTB2 blog and post your projects and see what the designers have come up with for the bunny challenge.  Happy Easter everyone!
