Easy Easter Bunny Banner – In 30 Minutes or Less!

Comment

Decorate for Easter with this Easy Easter Bunny Banner that you can complete in 30 minutes or less. It’s so easy you could whip one up for a friend too!

It seems like  holidays hit us in quick succession February through April. I love celebrating and decorating, but life is busy and it seems like I’m always in a rush. Because of that, I’ve tried to simplify without sacrificing the fun, so I try to focus holiday decor in a few focal points of our home so we still feel festive but cut down on the time and effort put into decorating and taking down.  For me (who still has a few Christmas & New Years decorations sitting in the corner of the laundry room waiting to be put away still) this is a total win! This easy Easter Bunny Banner packs in all the handmade goodness in 30 minutes or less.

the electronic die-cutting method –

  1. Download and print the Easy Easter Bunny Banner digital file.
  2. Open the black and white cut file in the die-cutting machine software. Use the trace feature to create cut lines, then move the cut file off to the side.
  3. Open the digital bunny banner file; copy and paste into the document that has your cut lines. Size your bunny banner file to match the cut file lines. (The cut file provides a white edge around the images to help your banner pieces pop.)
  4. Select the cut lines image. Object>Arrange>Bring to Front.
  5. Add printer registration marks for your machine.
  6. Send to color printer.
  7. Place printed banner pieces on cutting mat; load cutting mat into your die-cutting machine and cut.

TIPS & IDEAS

You can make this banner as simple or complex as you like:

  • Tie ribbons, raffia, tulle or pastel colored pipe cleaners (curl the ends on a pencil) in between the paper pieces.
  • Cut a simple pennant flag to add to the mix out of a patterned paper.
  • Want to spell out Easter or other Easter words? Purchase large stickers or cut them with your die-cutting machine, and adhere them to a pennant flag or simply tape the letters to the twine.
  • Use a glue stick to cover the green portion of each carrot and then add some of the crinkle paper Easter basket filler to give your banner dimension.
