Supplies Needed:

  • One sheet of 12x12 or 8 1/2 x 11 White cardstock
  • Easter Bunnies acid free sticker (The ones used here are by Hallmark and is the Heartline series.)
  • Black Extra Fine tip pen
  • Yellow Brush tip pen
  • Light Purple Fine line & Brush tip pen
  • Orange Brush tip or Broad tip pen
  • Light Green Fine tip pen
  • Wavy Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Eraser
Instructions:
  1. Take your pencil and your wavy ruler and draw a wavy line around the outside four edges of your cardstock about 1 inch in from the edge.
  2. Line your wavy ruler back on your wavy drawn pencil line and take your Light Purple fine tip pen and draw dashed tiny lines along the wave up to where the corners meet. Continue all the way around your page.
  3. Erase pencil lines.
  4. Place your Easter Bunnies stickers spaced evenly along the left or right (or both) edges starting with placing your sticker in the top and bottom corner.
  5. Place your Easter Bunny stickers where you wish to place them along the dashed wavy line. Started by placing the corners first
  6. Next, take your Orange Brush tip pen and place single dots here and there scattered and spaced out along the outside edges of your border. Try not to place too many. You can always go back and add more later if you like.
  7. Then with your black extra fine tip pen draw tiny loops to create 5 petals around the Orange dots circle to create a flower. (Note: you do not have to close the loops near the center. This creates the look that the orange center is on top and the petals fall behind adding dimension.) Repeat this step for as many flowers you would like to fill in the space around the stickers from the edge of your page to approximately 1 in from the edge.
  8. Add a curved stem to each flower with the Light Green Fine tip pen. Then add two tiny leaves to each stem.
  9. Place scattered dots with the Light Purple Brush tip pen between the flowers and the stickers.
  10. Your Page is now ready for pictures and journaling.
