Birthday Suspension Card

I’m finally getting around to posting another one of the projects from February. This one is from the stamp club that meets in my home. It’s a fun card that has some movement to it. The “Happy Birthday” image is attached to a piece of dental floss, and on the back-side there is another circle that says “and many more”. When twisted before the card is closed, the recipient sees it twirl around upon opening the card.

Bunny Tin Stamp Club project

This is one of the projects we made at my February stamp clubs. Everyone loved them, and they were so easy to make. The body of the bunny is a heart-shaped favor tin from Wilton. I purchased mine at Michael's awhile back. The rest of the bunny is made using paper scraps from Stampin' Up!'s Berry Bliss DSP and punches. Dimensions for the designer paper are: 5/8" x 8" strip for the base; scraps or 4 pieces 1 1/4" x 2" for the ears. Use scrap paper (Whisper White, Basic Black, and Pretty In Pink) for the face elements. The ears are the large and small oval punches, the bunny face uses the 3/4" and 1/4" circle punches. The whiskers are made using linen thread folded in half and tied in the middle. All these elements were adhered to the tin using mini glue dots. To finish off the lid (and to hide the ends of the bunny ears), attach 1/4" Pretty In Pink grosgrain ribbon (7 3/4") using Snail adhesive! Voila! Fill with candy eggs, and you have a really cute, inexpensive favor to give away for Easter.
