I had too much fun playing around with all the things I received from Canvas Corp Brands and Dare 2B Artzy!  I had a plan for the pennants.  But, as I was thinking about what might be and how they might be used…BUNNY EARS became the new project concept.  I randomly  accordion folded a banner and an ear was born.

The name is a play on my partner’s nickname from years ago…Bunk!  It is a bunnykey…bunky…bun-key.  He also loves word play like this and got a good laugh!

They sent me so much to work with that I also created several cards!  If you comment on the linked post I will send you some Canvas Corp Brands paper.  Get the details on that post!


Ears (x2):

  1. Randomly stamp Canvas Corp Brands canvas pennants with Dare 2b Artzy Big Bloom using stamping ink – Tropical Blue.
  2. Fill in some lines of circles with Tattered Angels Glam – Light Blue.
  3. Color the centers of the flowers with Tattered Angels Shimmer – Goldenrod.
  4. Mix Dare 2b Artzy Tropical Blue and Goldenrod and use to color in some of the leaves.
  5. Spray Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Jack Frost in a 6-inch line, drag the edges of the pennant through until the edges are colored blue, as desired.
  6. Allow to dry.
  7. Accordion fold the wide end and wrap with Hemp – Natural use a square knot to set and a simple knot in the ends.


  1. Canvas Home Basics Burlap Flower – Blue.  Randomly apply Tattered Angels High Impact Paint – White.  You can use a brayer, a stamp, your fingers…whatever!
  2. Flower Center:  This is from Poland I got it in a swap.  It was sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – French Lime, adhere with hot glue.
