Samantha Walker April Blog Hop

Welcome to the Samantha Walker Spring Blog Hop, the whole creative team is working and creating with the same cut file that you can get for free just participating in the blog hop.
You should have arrived here from the talented Diana Fisher's blog.


 Leave a comment by Sunday, 04/13 at 11:59pm MDT in order to be eligible for the free SVG/Silhouette file as well as the prize...which is the 

This is the free file you can receive for participating in the blog hop using the Raffle Copter entries below.

I created a fun little Easter gift to give to a very special little person.  I have been seeing lots of bunnies in jars on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to dress up the front on the jar with this gorgeous file.  I added a chocolate bunny, chocolate eggs and just a bit of crinkle paper.
Here you can see the bunny and chocolate eggs from the back!  So really it is pretty from all views.
I also created a fun little tag to add to it, I used the Cute As A Bunny file, 40150, and just the flowers from the free file to create the tag.
To create my bunny jar, I reduced the original file size by 25%...so you can see here that you type in 75%  and hit apply!
I cut the doily separately and then cut my flowers.  After cutting them, don't remove the mat...then you can create an internal offset on each flower, .080, was about the perfect distance.
After you create the internal offset, then you can change the line style.  I love to created faux stitching with my Silhouette pens.  It is so easy and it creates such a fun embellishment with ease.
Click on the picture below and it will take you right to the Silhouette Store to grab this file.
