Bunny Challenge

Hello everyone!  It's time for a new challenge over at Bitten by the Bug.  This week we are creating projects, cards, or layouts featuring a bunny cut with your Cricut.  I decided to get a start on Easter treat bags for my kids' classes.  I bought some bunny graham crackers at Walmart.  I thought they would be perfect for treat bags.  
I was determined to make this easy since I am making 51.  I didn't pick anything with a lot of layers.  
I started off by picking a photo mat from Artbooking to use as my topper.  I cut the bunny from Holiday Cakes and the carrot from Create a Critter.

I used the craftroom to help me with my sizing and to layout several cuts on a page.  
For the photo mat, I glued the layers then I scored it at 2.5 in. to fold it to make a topper.
I also used Auto-Fill for my bunny cuts.  You can adjust this to whatever size paper you are using.  
I usually cut everything out and then I start layering and putting together my treat bags in an assembly line to go a little faster.  
So 46 more to go this week!
Artbooking Cartridge:  Frame cut at 6 in.
Holiday Cakes Cartridge:  Bunny 1.5 in.
Create a Critter:  Carrot 1 in.
Recollections cardstock and pattern paper
CTMH black ink
And after I finished a few treat bags, we finally put up Easter decorations and had some of this:
And it was soooo good!

We hope you'll join us this week over at Bitten by the Bug 2 with your Bunny Project.
