Some Bunny Loves You

It's time for another Tic Tac Toe challenge over on The House That Stamps Built. Choose three items (across, down, or diagonally) to include on your creation, then come by the blog and link it up! I chose the top line -- Pearls, Bunnies, and Pink!

I started by creating a lattice background for this fun little shape card, but instead of using all white paper strips, I changed it up with some pastel colors!

 Creating a lattice background:
  1. Cut a stack 1/8 inch paper strips
  2. Run a strip of adhesive across the bottom of your cardstock  and adhere a line of paper strips
  3. Starting at the top, weave a strip of paper through and slide to the bottom
  4. Repeat until you reach the top 
  5. Carefully lift your woven piece, apply adhesive and press to your cardstock
Note: If you'd like to make a shape card like mine, be advised that it's very difficult to cut through all the layers with nestabitlites. I recommend cutting your lattice piece into a square and then adhering the white frame over top.

Absoutely adorable, Esther! The detailing and handmade weaving is amazing. I've never done the weaving before, but may have to give it a try.
