LW Hexagon Easter Bunny Box tutorial

Hi friends! I'm here with you today to share a tutorial on how I made these adorable Hexagon Easter Bunny Boxes! This is one of the new cut files for Easter from Lori Whitlock.  You can find it on the Lori Whitlock site here or on the Silhouette Design Store here.

When you open this file up in the Silhouette program it is already color coded and shows you where most of the pieces go to get you started.

I separated all of my pieces and added 3 more sets of the inner ear piece cut so that I could fold them in half long ways (which I will show in a few minutes) and adhere to them together to create a look of extra "fluff".


So here is what it looks like after I cut out all of my pieces. I went ahead inked up the edges and let that dry before going to my next step.

I started assembling my box by adding glue to side piece first and then the bottom flaps. Do not put glue on the top tabs because your box opens and closes from the top flap.

Next comes the face. Start with the black piece for the eyes and adhere it to the underside of the flap with the eye holes lined up with the eye holes that are cut into the box.

Next I worked on the ears where I folded each inner ear piece in half long ways (4 pieces for each ear). Then glued them together and then to the outside ear piece.

Slip the bottom of each ear piece into the slots provided and glue to the underside of the top flap. Then glue the white hexagon piece to the underside. This give the ears more stability and the whites of the eyes.

Your box should look like this. Then the rest is simply adhering all of the mouth pieces together and then adhering to the box.

Here is Mrs. Bunny...

and her sweet little cotton tail!

and here is Mr. Bunny.

And here is the sweet little couple together. 

Thanks for stopping by today to take a look and I hope that everyone has a blessed Easter holiday!

Lori Whitlock 2018 March Blog Hop!!

Hello crafty friends and welcome to my part of the Lori Whitlock March blog hop! You should have arrived here from Michelle's blog.

For my project today, I have the Carrot Favor Box (in the Silhouette store) that I've cut 4 different times with different patterned papers. I adhered the green grass to one side of the opening and let that dry. Then I added some Easter goodies like the malted milk eggs and jelly beans and sealed the carrot all the way. I thought they would look so cute sticking out of this clay pot like real carrots. Now after our Easter dinner the kids can grab a carrot and have their dessert!

Lori Whitlock - Sweet Baby Girl card and gift bag

Hello crafty friends! I am so excited because this is my 1st Lori Whitlock project! I am still over the moon to be joining this team of amazing crafters and working with Lori’s amazing cuts!

Today, I am sharing this card/gift bag for a sweet baby girl. I used the Diaper Bag and the Baby Bottle Shaped Card along with the beautiful new Lori Whitlock Sweet Baby Girl collection. We have had 2 new sweet baby girls born into the family within the past 3 months!

This card is just adorable and came together quickly! I had it put together within 5 minutes and then came the fun part of decorating it! Every piece of this card came from Sweet Baby Girl collection with the addition of some Doodlebug twine and button.

Same thing for this sweet little diaper bag...it came together quickly! I used small amount of glue to put the box together and to adhere the "diaper" pieces to the front, back, and sides, and then a couple of pearl brads to attach the handle. I don't know of any mom who wouldn't love to receive this sweet little set!

Hope you have enjoyed these projects, thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

My Girl Step by Step tutorial

Hello friends! Today I have another step by step tutorial for you! This layout is somewhat simple but I really wanted to focus on 2 things. First, the picture of my sweet daughter and second, journaling of what her favorites were at that time (which is hidden). This picture of her was taken in the Spring so I wanted all of the elements of the Creative kit to reflect that.

Here is a look at the fabulous February creative kit that I used for my layout...

I started out with a sheet of white 12x12 cardstock and pulled out some of the softer "springy" die cuts and frames.

I started this process by adhering the two frames down on to the cardstock with the pink one overlapping the greenish blue frame.

Next, I took a piece of 8 1/2" x 6 1/4" white cardstock and folded it in half to make a card base. I matted my picture with the pink flower pattern paper and adhered to front of card base.

For the inside, I adhered this printed list of all her favorites from a couple of years ago. Years from now, she will enjoy looking back on what she liked and disliked at the time.

After my picture was adhered down, I started building up clusters around the page. 

Next was simply adding some pink sequins.

Here are some close-ups of the clusters on the layout.

And here is the finished layout...

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and by now are enjoying one of the fabulous February kits!  My Creative Scrapbook
