Bunny Rabbit Easel Card and Tutorial

Assembling Front of Bunny Rabbits Easel Card

 
 You will notice small dash lines on the face of each bunny. These are guides for placing the eyes and nose on each. It also makes it much easier for adding cheek blush and shading around the eyes and nose before actually gluing them on.

Bunnies are created as individuals. Glue on their eyes, noses, inner ears along with bow ties and vest. Add a real button to the vest or cut the one provided. Bows are 3 layers for 3D effect.
 
 
 
Once each bunny is assembled add them to the card front layer starting with the middle bunny. You will notice there is a slightly larger outline around the characters, but the bottoms line up flush with each other.


Then add the bunny on left and lastly  the one on right.
Add pop dots to back of 2 front bunnies for added dimension.
 

Assembling inside layers


Glue lining to inside of card leaving a slight border.
Then glue message layers together.

Add pop dots to back of message panel and attach to inside of card.


How to fold base of card and attach front layer.

Fold card base along score lines. Both lines will fold forward.
Add glue to bottom 1/4 of card as shown then

attach the card front, lining up along edges.

Photos above show what the easel card will look like from the side and back when slightly opened.
 
Easel cards fold flat for mailing. When opened the card is folded forward and the bottom edge tucked behind the message panel.
