Tutorial Tuesday and a trip around the house...

This bunny is one of many I've made over the last few years. It's very simple really, but I don't have step by step pictures this time because I haven't made one this year :( so I'll just have to walk you through it... I took a small sticker to kinkos and had them blow it up and copy it on good paper - not cardstock- too thick (you could do this with a free graphic from one of our generous graphic blogs...) I cut out the rabbit, leaving a small bit of edge, then I sewed it to a piece of scrapbook paper that I thought went well with the rabbit. You could also use fabritac or a similar strong bonding glue and run a very thin bead of it around the edge of the rabbit and skip the sewing. I then filled him with stuffing and glued a bottom made of coordinating paper to him. I glued reindeer moss to the silver dish and then glued him to the moss using hot glue. Really easy peasy I promise, but if you have any questions I'd be glad to help! I made this with one of Karens graphics and added the sweetest silver bird ever!
Sorry this didn't come out as good as I would have liked but it is one of my favorite Easter decorations! I love this print in it's chippy black frame.

This picture is one of the few things that I picked up at our local flea market last month. There really wasn't much there but when I saw this my heart did a little leap:)

This man is by far one of my favorite finds ever. I just love him he looks all serious but he has such a sweetness to his face. I love that he is holding his beloved hat. I dare say that he is one of the few treasures that I have brought home that everyone likes! How about that! LOL

This piece is huge! I made it out of an old atlas and used almost every page to do it! Even the center -The World About US- is from the book. I only wish I would have made sure all of the points were pointing in the same direction... oh well, live and learn!

Well, that's it for today... 2 posts in one day! Wow, that's kinda crazy! And with tomorrow being White Wednesday well, I'll be back soon! So tonight I'll have to look around here to see what white goodness I have to share with you!
Thanks so much for stopping by, Theresa xoxo

Oh I almost forgot... I'm linking this up to Tutorial Tuesday over at Hope Studios!

    I think your atlas wreath is gorgeous. The map colors are perfect and I like that you added the "The World About Us" to the middle. It's a great finishing touch.
