Instructions:

Fun Easter Craft Idea: Bunny Brooch made with Paper!

1. Cut the Paper into Strips.

To begin making the Bunny Brooch, use your paper cutter or a pair of scissors to cut your sheet of colored cardstock into 1/4″ strips. You will need roughly one sheet of cardstock paper for each bunny brooch.

2. How to Use the Quilling Tool

For this project I use a small quilling tool.  You can find them at most craft stores. I paid just a few dollars for this tool and I’ve used it for years!  Also, I prefer to use Tacky Glue because just like it says in the name, it is tacky.  I can work much more quickly as the glue works fast and dries clear.

Slide the end of a pink strip into the slot of the quilling tool. Then twist the tool and begin winding the paper strip around the end of the tool. Twist the tool and wind the paper until the entire strip is wound around the end of the tool.

3. Wind the strips of Paper into a Circle

Add dots of tacky glue along your strips of paper and continue to wind them into a large circle, adding strips as you go. Once the circle has begun, you can remove the quilling tool and continue by hand.

4. Create Two Paper Circles

Using the technique above, create a large circle for the body of the Bunny Brooch, approximately 1-1/4 inch in diameter, and a smaller circle for the head, approximately 3/4 inch in diameter. Glue the head and body of the paper bunny brooch together using tacky glue.

5. Create the Bunny Ears

Each ear will require 3 strips of 1/4 inch wide paper cut along the length of the cardstock. Use the tacky glue to glue the three strips together to create one long strip for each ear.

Once the glue has dried, use the quilling tool to wind the strip into a circle. (Do not add dots of glue to this one)! Remove the tool and allow the circle to loosen a bit, then pinch each end to create a petal shape. Use a dot of glue on the end of the strip in order to maintain the shape. Repeat for the second ear.

6. Glue the Bunny Brooches Together

Glue the ears to the top of the each head. Allow the glue to dry for about one hour.

7. Bunny Brooch Finishing Touches

To add a bit of sparkle and a few finishing touches, begin by painting the top of the Bunny Brooch with a light coat of Mod Podge. While the Mod Podge is still wet, sprinkle the Bunny Brooch with clear glitter. Glue on a small scrapbook flower.

Once the Bunny Brooches are dry, glue a pin to the back with E6000 glue.
