Fluffy Punch Art Bunnies!!!

Aren't these the cutest things to add to any Easter projects??
Thank you to Deb Speijers who first showed the to me on Crafters Anonymous. They are all punch art, here's the list:
Ears - large oval, small oval (inners)
Face - ornament (head), 1" circle (cheeks), bird wings (eyes), circle from itty bitty set (eyes and nose)
Body - wide oval, bird wings (arms)
Legs - large oval
Basket - round tag, large oval & small oval for handles (hint: punch a small oval out of some card and then punch the large oval around the hole, creating an oval ring)
Eggs - small oval

The key to making them look realistic is to sponge the edges, which gives them some dimension. Deb sponged hers in Whisper White which on the Chocolate Chip makes the bunnies look so cuddly!! The addition of the white on the nose and the eyes makes them look glossy - a perfect finish to punch art projects.
I think I will add these to cellophane bags of mini Easter eggs for my nieces.
