Instructions

  • Cut and assemble the party hat. This will be the ’body’ of the bunny.
  • Open body.svg and size. ’break apart’ and remove the ’body’. Cut everything but the arms.
  • Weld a rectangle to the bunny arms that is about 3-4” wide and 1.20” tall. This will make the arms longer so they can stick out a bit.
  • Cut the bows, flowers (6.svg), and tulips. Set aside.
  • Assemble the bunny face and adhere a bow. It looks cute to curve the ’tall’ ear a little! Adhere to the top of the party hat.
  • Using a craft kife, cut slits on the side of the party hat. This will be where you slide the arms in.
  • Adhere tulips and bow to bunny’s arm. The ’tails’ on the bow were hand cut.
  • For the legs, you will cut two strips 10.50” wide and 1.25” high. Accordion fold these every .50”. Adhere feet and then adhere to the inside of the hat.

Design Tips

Tamara Tripodi - SVGCuts Design Team Artist

  • When using white on white cardstock (or any ’light’ colors) I like to ink my edges a bit to add some contrast some everything doesn’t ’blend’.
  • Have fun making a ’family’ of bunnies.. a boy and girl, etc. The bow would be cute for a bow tie!
  • Use foam adhesive to layer facial features and tulips for dimension.

I hope you enjoyed my cute little decor piece and it puts you in the mood for some fun spring crafting! This will look darling on a fireplace, shelf, etc! Try to use other animals as well! See ya next time!

    I believe there is a typo with the size of the pink section of the buddy body.  I sized mine to 11.00 and it was way too large!  I did some quick math and set mine to 3 in. (keeping proportions) and it worked just fine!
