The Funny Bunnies have BABIES!

If these little critters look familiar, it's because they're the spittin' image of their parents, Bonnie and Benjamin the Funny Bunnies!  They've been reborn in miniature to dress up a plain old candy bar for Easter gifts for my co-workers.  After all, good things really do come in small packages! 

You can probably make most of the parts with scraps of paper and cardstock, but you'll need a fairly large piece for the wrapper itself.  I recommend a lighter weight paper for the wrapper and cardstock for the bunny parts.  You'll also need 1/4" googly eyes, and I use ink and sponges to add dimension to the pieces, and Stickles to add some sparkle.  I used clear Stickles over the pink cardstock.

I didn't make a tutorial, because the assembly for the bunnies is exactly like that for the gift bags, so if you missed that one, be sure to watch it for tips.  For the wrapper, just wrap over the existing one on the candy bar and adhere on the back, then glue your assembled bunny on the front.  Quick and easy!

Cindy,
Just to let you know I did about 30 of your little bunnies. I just downloaded some of them on the message board. I'm not too good with sending pictures. I did size the pic down but it printed large on the mb!!
just wanted to say thanks again, they are so cute.
