As much as I am thankful for pre-made scrapbooking embellishments and the time they save me, sometimes they just don't have what I had in mind for a particular project or theme. When I can't find something pre-made, I've never been one to shy away from creating my own. I actually quite enjoy making my own custom embellishments and special themed designs.
I knew when I started my YouTube channel that I wanted to start a series that shows how to create easy-to-make embellishments so I'm really excited to roll this one out!

With Easter right around the corner and these cute photos of Jackson and his Easter egg haul, I was in the mood to play.
I was lacking any large embellishment, which is really what I was looking for to us on this layout. Lightbulb! Lately I've seen some really cute Easter bunny home decor on Pinterest and I knew I could recreate something similar with patterned paper.
Anytime I am making a custom embellishments, I look at the object of what I want to make, in this case the Easter bunny, and I break down into the different shapes that can be used to create it.
I had to look at the lower body, upper body, ears, and tail and figure out what shape I could use to create it. This one was super easy! The Easter bunny only took one shape to complete the whole bunny!
Check out my video to see how I put it all together to create this simple, yet cute patterned paper Easter bunny.
