Gosh, I love banners. I just can’t stop making them. Even if I already have one for a holiday, I need more. 🙂 They are just SO fun to make! Today, I’m sharing this fun Bunny and Chick Easter Banner that I put together this week.
I cut everything out using my Cricut Explore (affiliate link) machine. The images I used for this project can be found on the Birthday Bash, George and Basic Shapes, and Doodlecharms cartridges. I cut out my banner shapes ovals, noses, and chick feet and then inked all the edges of them with brown ink. (The chick feet are made from welding 3 ovals together.) All of my patterned papers are the new Core’dinations Patterned Paper. I’ve been loving creating with it lately.
I started by putting a small strip of adhesive between the holes on the back of the colored banner pieces.
Then stuck it to the white background banner piece.
Next I put together my chicks. I used glue dots and put the beak and the feet on the egg. You could also draw eyes on there. I chose not to, but my five year old did let me know that they were missing their eyes. 🙂
I layered the two ovals together for each ear, and then I folded one ear down. I was making four bunnies, so I left both ears up on two of them and folded one ear down on the other two. I used glue dots to put the ears on the back of the oval, and also to affix the nose.
I used dimension squares to place each bunny and chick onto the banner pieces. On the bunnies that didn’t have an ear folded, I added a baker’s twine bow. Once I had all the banner pieces put together, I used baker’s twine to string the banner together.
Then I hung it up! Here you can see how the baker’s twine bow looks on the bunny ear.
I love the dimension that is added, just by using the squares to lift the ovals off of the banner shapes.
I think it is fun as well, that the banner shapes are only attached at the top, that helps add dimension too.
Here is a better look at the whole banner. I love that it is a pretty simple banner, but having the different colors makes it so festive and fun!
I was excited to get out some of my other spring and Easter decor that goes so well with this fun Bunny and Chick Easter Banner. My Paper Easter Wreath (that I took the nest out of and put on one of my shutters) is made from the same paper, so it matches perfectly! My Potted Spring Flowers match pretty well too! I got my green lantern from Pick Your Plum (affiliate link).
I’m pretty excited about the way my shelf is looking, at least for the Easter season!Linking up to some of these parties.
