I've got two sets of "outside the box" projects for you this time! The second set should be ready next week, but today I am ready to share with you a few fun alternate ideas that I created with the contents of the March 2017 Bunny Buddies Paper Pumpkin kit.
This is what I have for you in my first set of projects (part 1 of 2)...
- altered colored bunny bags
- ways to make your own ears
- a sachet
- envelope bunny treat bags
- and a fun Project Life layout
Watch the video first to get tips, measurements and directions. Then scroll down to see close-up photos of these projects and a list of extra supplies I used to make them. (Click on each picture to see it a bit larger.)
Here are close-up photos of the alternate projects that I created from this kit that I shared in the video above.
MY VARIETY OF BUNNY BAGS
The two with the peach ears are made per the kit directions. The other 3 are altered a bit.
Here are the altered bags. Two have different ears (that I show you how to make in the video). The white one is a bleached bag. And the brown one is a stained bag.
I loved changing up the bag colors!
Staining is easy with Stampin' Spritzers. (If you want a more permanent color, you may want to use fabric dyes instead of our Classic ink reinkers.)
I wasn't a fan of the multicolored ears that came in the kit, so I made my own for a couple of the bags.
As you'll discover in the video, sewing is NOT my thing. But I do love the smell of this sachet! I could gift it, but instead it will be going in MY drawer.
For those of you who don't mind working with a needle and thread, you will find this project quite easy.
Decorate the bag, stuff it, and sew it shut.
I used Gold Glitz (see the complete supply list below), but Dazzling Details "glitter glue" is also available in Silver Sparkle.
ENVELOPE BUNNY TREAT BAGS
Those of you who use your small note cards in the kit for other things will have extra envelopes left over. Bagalopes is another term used when referring to these fun bags made from envelopes. Check out the video to see how easy these are to make!
MY FISHY PROJECT LIFE LAYOUT
The wild patterned paper reminded me of a school of fish swimming. So I took the "ear stickers" and put them together to form a fish.
I share tips for centering these alphabet stamps and for turning our white bubble stickers (White Perfect Accents) into clear ones.
The fish eye is another altered White Perfect Accent.
I had a great time creating these ideas. I hope you got a bit of inspiration from them so that you can use your Bunny Buddies kit contents in other ways.
If you are one of my March Paper Pumpkin kit subscribers, you'll be getting my 12-13 extra exclusive project ideas on April 2nd. So watch for that.

“Bold, vibrant, and artistic—with a little bit of sass,” is how Stampin’ Up! CEO Sara Douglass described the kit she designed for the April Paper Pumpkin. Plus every April Paper Pumpkin kit will include a FREE gift! Get started, stay active, or renew your subscription.
Prepaid subscriptions are another way to get in on the fun. You purchase 1, 3, 6 or 12 months all at once, enter your prepaid code into your Paper Pumpkin account (you will get an email after purchasing that gives instructions for this), and then enjoy each month for the number of months you purchased. I highly recommend the 3-month or the 12-month prepaid right now. Click here to read more about Sale-A-Bration. Even current subscribers can purchase prepaids, because the prepaid code that comes via email after purchasing can be entered into a Paper Pumpkin account and it will override the credit card that is already in the system. I LOVE that Paper Pumpkin prepaid subscriptions count towards your purchases for Sale-A-Bration rewards! But hurry! Sale-a-Bration ends March 31st.
Thanks for checking out the projects I had to share today. Have a great weekend!
