I was perusing the pbkids website the other morning - I know. It's a disease. It's really their fault because they keep sending all these emails. Anyways, they have these really cute Peter Rabbit Glitter Cut-Outs for Easter. They looked so good I almost just ordered them. Almost. Then I decided I could do some myself and probably for a lot less money.
After printing I did enhance some of the parts of the bunny with some felt tip markers. Sometimes when you enlarge things in Word the image quality suffers a bit and filling in things with a marker makes a huge difference.
I decided to highlight just a small detail on each vintage animal instead of outlining the entire shape in glitter. Now I did have to go buy glitter and I did spend about $10 on glitter but I do now have 15 little jars of glitter to use on any future projects. I may just be glittering up some paper mache eggs this weekend:).
Here they are again sitting on top of our piano.
Here they are lounging around in the bookcase. I think I like them here the best.
Another spot in the bookcases. By the way if you want the details on the bookcase project you can click here.
For the bunny I used silver glitter to outline the ribbon on his egg.
Because the chicks didn't have any accouterments, I thought their eyes were the feature that could use some glitter.
The little lamb is my favorite. His bell and collar turned out so nice.
My goal with this project was to make a little something that could sit on a shelf or mantle to make it festive for Easter. I love the vintage look of these - as if they could have been in our family for years and perhaps they will be. I am thinking that I could even add some eggs or a basket to fill out the set. Which Easter animal is your favorite?
