Bubble bunny basket

This basket was done for the SCS challenge
TLC213 Mini Easter Basket. It challenge was just too cute to pass up. The pattern can be found at SCS along with other really adorable examples. It was pretty simple to do but I thought you might like to see how I changed the bubbles into flower bubbles.

The bunny is from a set called Bunny Love from Close To My Heart. Very cute set for Easter cards. This picture was just used for the demo, not the one I used for the project (meaning I didn't stamp it very well) but I wanted to show the whole image of the bunny and bubbles which I cut off. The flower is also in the set. I colored the bunny with prisma pencils and gamsol. The flowers were done with Stampin Up markers and an aqua brush.

With the bunny on the wrong side, I taped some fishing line I managed to talk my husband into taking off his fishing rod (what a guy!).

I put a small piece of tape on the wrong side of one flower and placed the fishing wire on top.

Now place the other flower on top matching it up with the other so they overlap each other. I trimmed off any excess that showed on either side.

Finally, I put pop up dots (one of my most favorite cardmaking tools) on the back of the bunny. I layered three 1/8" dots on the bottom so the side of the basket wasn't squished down, and one at the head to secure it at the top of the basket.
Now hop on over to SCS and see all the other cute samples and make one of your own.
