A Book Page Bunny

Since my book page Christmas tree was a big hit in blogland, I decided to try a book page bunny for Easter.

I searched the net for book page bunnies and although there were a lot of decoupaged bunnies, there were not too many decoupaged with book pages.





There was this bunny with tutorial from Little Birdie Secrets.


And then there were these book page eggs that interested me from Oleander and Palm.  I liked the idea here of several shades of book page color and print sizes.  Maybe a little more vintage looking.

So I picked up this bunny for $3 at the thrift shop...

It's bright and shiny.


Then I ripped up small pieces of book pages prior to gluing.  I think I ended up ripping some pieces even smaller, but you can see the variation in type size and page color.


I started brushing on Mod Podge with a small foam brush but really ended up applying a lot of the Mod Podge with my finger.  It took me several hours to finish as I used pretty small pieces of paper.  Then when I woke up this morning and checked on my project some of the bright blue was peeking through in spots.  I added more Mod Podge and more paper pieces.  

I really like the way my bunny turned out.  He has a crazy quilt kinda vintage quality!





I put my bunny in an Easter vignette with one of my styrofoam button Easter eggs in a zinc pot with Spanish moss.  If you want to try your hand at the button eggs, my post is here.

 I added a vintage framed Easter card that was my Grandma's.



Stay tuned for my chocolate bunnies to come soon!

  19. This bunny looked so familiar to me. I looked at mine and it is exactly the same, but it's ceramic with a crackle finish that I just added a ruffled burlap collar. Love how you did yours. I too have one done in music sheets. Love the button egg.
