I love this design. It is sorta inspired by the doggie projects by Crafts With Sarah. You should check her stuff out. She has some free stuff, but charges for most of her projects. I wanted to try to make my own and it is harder than it looks! It has taken many tries to get this right.
Paper Selection for Easter Bunny Layered Art
This project can be made with any paper. The colors for the bunny parts in my version are two shades of pink. Patterns, foils or glitter paper would work for everything in this project and would add bling. Patters probably need to be smaller in size though.
Cutting the Easter Bunny Layered Art
Start with the lowest layer and cut the designs upward in layer. Be careful removing the bunnies from the mat because the lines can be thin, and they can tear easily
Since you have to use the SVG, make sure you read the instruction sheet that is included in the zip file. This document will tell you how big the project should load up, but if you want it bigger or smaller that works too.
Assembling the Easter Bunny Layered Art
As you cut the layers, build up from the bottom. Glue each layer to the one below it before you cut the next layer. This way you don’t lose the little pieces.
You can glue the layers together with foam tape or liquid glue. Foam tape adds more dimension to the project but you end up using a lot of it. And I think it adds some needed dimension to the project.
Start with the solid bunny on the bottom. Then add the dark pink cut out layer lining it up exactly with the layer below it. Next attach the outline layer. The whiskers are the hardest part to line up. Once they are aligned properly the rest just falls into place.
Next assemble the egg, tie and carrot. You can use liquid glue or foam tape. I used foam tape for assemble but attached them and the eyes to the bunny with liquid glue.
Once the layers are all together, use a piece of cardstock that goes with your color scheme for a base if you need it.. Frame the piece with a shadowbox frame to give it enough room. If you want to use a regular frame, you should put foam tape between the mat and the glass along the edges to make the frame stick up far enough to give the project room.
And your Fancy Easter Bunny Layered Art is done. Maybe I will do more of these in the future, now that I have figured it out.
