We’re already at the end of March and spring is officially here (did you hear that Spring?! It’s time to start warming up!) so this week I put away the winter mantle decorations and started decorating for spring.

This year I wanted to use my new Silhouette and make a banner with bunny shapes. For the paper I went with floral patterns and solid color sheets with geometric patterns. I created 3 .svg files of bunnies in different poses and imported them into the Silhouette Design Studio where I created a cut pattern. Then I cut a few of each of the bunny shapes out of the different papers.

After I had the shapes cut out I measured the ribbon I used to hang them and laid it out on the floor to check the spacing between each bunny.
