DIY Easter Bunny Sign | Cricut Crafts | Craft Klatch

Learn how to make an Easter Bunny sign, using the Cricut cutting machine!  It's an easy holiday project!



Here is a quick video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made it:  




Directions:


1.  I created a new project in Cricut Design Space.

2.  Watch the video above, to see exactly how I did it.  


3.  I cut it out with my Cricut.

4.  In the meantime, I painted my wood panel with a light purple paint and let it dry.


5.  In the meantime, weed the vinyl.


6.  Apply transfer tape to the vinyl.  

7.  Burnish it down.

8.  Remove the transfer tape from the backing.  You want to pickup the vinyl with it.



9.  Put the vinyl and transfer tape onto the dry board.

10.  Burnish the vinyl, to make sure it adheres well.

11.  Then, carefully pull off the transfer tape.


12.  Burnish down the edges again.

13.  I used the same purple paint to paint over all of the vinyl. I made sure to go in all directions.  This prevents any seepage of the next color.  Allow it to dry.

14.  Paint green over everything and let it dry.

15.  Once dry, start pulling off the vinyl.



16.  I glued pom poms on as bunny tails.

17.  Add bows.

That's it!


I hope you like it!  Remember:  Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™

This is the resin I used for this project:
FX Poxy:  http://amzn.to/2AF3Pkk ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500 degrees F.
Fast Cast (optional for white background):  https://amzn.to/2wTZ6wc

White pigment (optional to tint clear resin for background):  https://amzn.to/2QbPRiU


Here is a quick video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made it:



Directions:
1.  I mixed one ounce of fast curing resin, which cures white.  I didn't want a stark white background, so I mixed in some copper pigment powder.


2.  I poured it into the mold.  The resin cures fast, so you need to move quick!

3.  Once cured, you can remove the coaster from the mold.

4.  I removed it from the mold and laid it on a flat surface.

5.  I tore up some newspaper.


6.  I painted the Mod Podge onto the coaster.

7.  I laid the newspaper onto the coaster.

8.  I painted Mod Podge on the newspaper pieces, as I put them on.

9.  I repeated this until I covered the hole face of the coaster.



10.  Once all of the Mod Podge has dried, I stenciled a heart onto it, with acrylic paint.




11.  I mixed an ounce of clear resin and slowly poured it over the coaster.

12.  I helped it get to the edges.

13.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles and let it cure for a minimum of 12 hours, before handling.

That's it!  Here it is finished!

Here is the back!

Easter Bunny Place Cards | Cricut Crafts | Craft Klatch

Learn how to use your Cricut cutting machine to make Easter Bunny Place Cards in this craft tutorial!  It's an easy Easter DIY!


You will need:
The links below help support this channel,  as I may earn a small commission at no extra cost to you.

Cricut (Amazon):  http://amzn.to/2wChE2l  

Here is a quick video, so you can see exactly how I made them:






Directions:

1.  I went into Cricut Design Space and opened a new project. I clicked on images and typed in bunny.  The image I wanted for this project was the first one.

2.  It was actually a good size at 3.64" x 3", but you can size it to whatever size you want.

3.  I changed the color to pink, to go with the card stock I used.

4.  I clicked on the shapes and selected the circle and shrunk it down to the size of an eye.



5.  Click on the bunny and select duplicate.



Now they are multiplying like bunnies!😉

6.  I selected each bunny and changed it to the color that corresponds to the card stock I will be using.

7.  I clicked on text and selected a writing font and I happened to use the one named Awesome.  I sized it to 62.71.  I moved the text box to the middle of the first bunny.  

8.  I then repeated the same process and added names to all of the other bunnies.  I then selected each bunny and its corresponding name and clicked attach, so they would become one.  Tip:  Double check that the bunnies and eyes are on cut and the names are on draw.

9.  Click the Make It box and you will have a screen that shows your bunnies separated on different colored mats. 

10.   It defaults to a 12"x12" size for the materials.  My material is 8.5" x 11", so I changed it.  It did not matter for this particular project, but if I had more bunnies, it would have properly placed them, based on my material size.

11.  I placed my card stock on the mat and rubbed it down.

12.  I set the machine to go and made sure it was set to card stock.  I also made sure I had my marker in place.

13.  Once it cut and drew, I easily peeled off the excess card stock.

14.  Here are the cute bunnies!  You can be done right here, or you can add just a little more.

15.  I used thin ribbon an dried a small bow.  

16.  I hot glued it onto the bunny.

17.  I hot glued a small pom pom onto the tail.


That's it!  Now you have these adorable bunny place cards!





They can be used as place cards, but if you are doing a buffet, instead of names, you can write the dishes onto the bunnies.  You can then glue them to stir sticks or skewer sticks and put them in the food, or just lay them in front of the bowls or dishes.


Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you give them a try!  Remember:  Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
