Give Away Hugs

Happy Monday, everyone!  Today is my DT day over at Pink by Design, and I have a cute little Easter decoration to share with you.  Here it is:

That fun sentiment came from Pink by Design's Subway Art Stamp Set.  I love that you can use the stamps all together to create subway art, or you can use them separately as sentiments.  I thought the "give away hugs" one was perfect for this little bunny.  She is actually the Sleeping Bunny from My Scrap Chick's Easter Bunnies Mini Collection.  I didn't want her to be sleeping, though, I wanted her to be giving away some hugs. So, I used a face from Peachy Keen's Princess Face Assortment to make her look awake. I added lots of ink to the cuts, popped them up with different sizes of foam tape, and my little bunny scene was all done.

I was originally going to use this for a card, but it was so cute that I decided to make it into a little shelf decoration.  All I had to do was add a piece to the back to make it stand up on its own.  Here's how I did it:

First, I folded a rectangular piece of cardstock in half and cut it on an angle to create a triangle.  With it folded in half, I made another fold as shown. 

Then, I used my ATG gun to add adhesive to the piece I've marked in the photo.   

Finally, I adhered the piece to the back of my bunny scene.  Now, it stands up just like a picture frame would.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a great week!
