Bookpage Bunny Sign-A Tutorial

I have seen so many projects, using pages from a book.  I wanted to create an Easter decoration using a book page.  I decided to make a book page bunny.  Since I've been working on signs, I decided a sign would be a great way to display my book page bunny.  First, I took an 8x8" piece of 1/4" birch plywood and painted it a great blue.  I painted very lightly so you could still see a little of the wood peeking through.

My friend used her Cricut to cut the bunny out.  I used my distressing pad to distress the edges of the bunny and distressed the actual page.

I dry-brush painted some grass on the bottom of the board.

I Mod Podged the bunny to the board.  I waited for the bunny to dry (about 30 mins.).  I then Mod Podged the entire board and let it dry.

After the board dried, I used my mouse sander to distress the board.

Then, I used my Silhouette to cut out the words, "Hippity Hop" on vinyl.  I used the font: Monster Paparazzi.
I used the vinyl as a stencil.

I painted a light coat of brown.

After the paint dried, I peeled off the vinyl and this is what I had!  It's a keeper!

  3. Thanks guys! Mimi, you don't have to have a paper cutter. I used an exacto knife for many projects! I just printed things off my computer and cut away.
