Gorgeous Spring day (in the 70's) here today!  Perfect backdrop for my Easter Big Shot Class.  I think everyone enjoyed our projects!  Punch Art is always a hit and I had plenty of Punch Art mixed in our projects.  I hope you enjoy them, too. 

First up is our 3D project.  My Bunny Box from last year has been transformed into a Tall Top Note Box - my favorite for different holidays.  And now she has a body, too!  ;o)  Such a cutie!  Check back tomorrow for the next project - a Punch Art/Big Shot Peter Cottontail card!

  3. This is so adorable! It's amazing how crafters can take a punch and make them come to life. I look at a punch and it's a punch. LOL I love this so much that I made 6 of them for Easter this year. Here is the link if you would like to see them.

    Thanks for the inspiration.
