Altered Holiday Gift Tag Mini Album Project featuring Carousel Christmas with Angela


Hi Everyone,

Angela here with you today with a brand new mini album made of tags and a soft mixed media touch.

Mixed Media Tag Mini Album by Angela Tombari made with BoBunny Carousel Christmas Collection

Sometimes I love messing and mixing with colors and pastes, it's always amazing to see what it comes out....

The tags of the mini are made using the Carousel Christmas Ephemera Pack and are held together by two rings on the top left side.

I started spreading a touch of color on the tags and then I used a few stencils with white gesso.

When everything was dried, I stamped randomly using the It Is Written BoBunny stamp and embossed them with embossing powder.

I fussy cut a few frames, which are part of Carousel Christmas collection, one for each tag and on the back I adhered a piece of vellum.

On each frame, I stamped a word and white embossed it.

As a finishing touch, to give a romantic feeling, I added different laces I had in my stash.

Christmas Tree Ornaments featuring Carousel Christmas - with Ayumi

Hello BoBunny friends!! It's Ayumi here. 
Today I'll share with you Christmas Ornament using Carousel Christmas collection!  

Christmas Ornament by Ayumi Iwashita.


I prepared a clear glass ornament for this project.   I wanted to use a concave piece that I can add decorations and small elements inside.  I am using a Stickable Stencil here as pictured.  This is ideal for use on a round surface.  This stencil is thin and very pliable and also has a moderate adhesive on the backside to keep it in place as I apply the glitter paste.


I then prepared to use some Glitter Paste.


I will use Glitter Paste as a pattern on the whole ornament.
It looks lovely when it dries, and truly catches the light! Sparkly!

I added a decoration such as a pine cone.

Since it alone is not enough, I cut out the pattern paper and decorated it, along with some other teeny elements to add interest

The snowman is very cute!



I Hope you enjoyed the pictures of the project. just for fun I have included a video as well!  I hope you enjoyed the project today!




Enjoy your happy day.

Thank you.

Merry Christmas to All! Handmade Cards featuring FaLaLa with Marilyn



Hello everyone!!!  It's Marilyn here to share these textured Christmas cards that I created with different products by Bo Bunny, let's take a look...


I made two different backgrounds for the cards the first one I gave textures with the Deck The Halls Stickable Stencils and white gesso. In the second card,  I stamped with the Circular Textures Stamp and a white permanent ink. The paper is from the Double Dot Designs paper pad (6 x 6).


I did a little traick of tearing the paper to create the hill and make white paint splatters to give the snow effect.  The adorable Santa and the gifts are from the Santa and Friends stamp that I hand colored.


The Circular Textures Stamp gives nice textures on my card, I played with them to make this fun background.  I gave more textures with the Silver Confetti Paste and adhered some little gems.



Here's a simple version of my previous card, this one doesn't have the confetti but I made dots with the sugar Pearlescents.




I had a lot of fun creating these cards and I want to share with you how I made them.

Shabby Chic Carousel Christmas Wall Hanging - with Ginny





Hey there BoBunny Peeps! Ginny here and today I'm sharing a very sweet and shabby chic inspired Christmas wall hanging using Carousel Christmas.


Jingle Bells Shabby Chic Christmas Wall Hanging Ginny Nemchak BoBunny Carousel Christmas

I just think Carousel Christmas is the dreamiest holiday collection.

I started this project thinking I wanted to create a shadow box styled ornament with painted mason jar lid...but before I knew it I had a wall hanging in front of me.

The lid is finished with a coat of Gesso then filled in with festive images and accented with faux snow for a frosty look.

Additional images are fussy cut and layered on with spacers for nice dimension. I've added a tinsel hanger and coordinating bows to hang.

The chipboard snowflakes are also finished with the Gesso then top coated with Glitter paste....because every shabby chic wall hanging needs pink sparkly snowflakes.

You can see the dimension I was able to get by adhering the elements with foam spacers between the layers. There's a bit of the die cut doily peeking out here and I think it adds texture as well as a visual break from the patterned papers.

 Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : )

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year featuring Carousel Christmas - with Emmy

Hello BoBunny fans!

Emmy here today with a brand new project featuring the lovely Carousel Christmas collection to share with you!


And here are some close ups and tips & tricks on how I did it.

To assemble the background, I layered two different pattern papers and white cardstock on top of each other. Then using Stickable Stencil and Glitter Paste I created the gold dimensional pattern. As a final touch I sprinkled Glimmer Spray on top. 




To decorate my page I used a lot of different fussy cut images and die cut shapes...






I used Glitter Paste and different colour rhinestones to embellish my images.

Hello BoBunny Fans

It's Denise here today with a little bit of festive decoration! I used the beautiful Carousel Christmas collection to create an altered Christmas decoration.

I have a candle inside, surrounded by artificial flowers, which can be lit and will be a beautiful piece at night. Here's a look at the top decoration.

...and here's a look at it, side on.




Carousel Christmas_Christmas Decoration_Denise_25 Nov_04




I did a lot of fussy cutting and used some die-cuts to create the little festive clusters. There are so many beautiful images that one can cut, that it's sometimes hard to choose which ones!!!




Carousel Christmas_Christmas Decoration_Denise_25 Nov_05




I fussy cut the bells below and added some snowflakes and holly. I also added some snow features and splatters, which I created with some watered down gesso and an old toothbrush.




Carousel Christmas_Christmas Decoration_Denise_25 Nov_06




I used some BoBunny cardstock and handmade these pink flowers. 




Carousel Christmas_Christmas Decoration_Denise_25 Nov_07



You can see from the photo below that I created a window effect by cutting out a big window frame for both sides of this decorative piece.



Carousel Christmas_Christmas Decoration_Denise_25 Nov_08


The layers and all the bits and pieces add dimension and depth to this project.



Carousel Christmas_Christmas Decoration_Denise_25 Nov_09

I added some foil transfers on the bottoms of the back and front faces too.



Carousel Christmas_Christmas Decoration_Denise_25 Nov_10

I had bought this piece more than a year ago and knew that I somehow wanted to alter it as a Christmas piece and so this year it will be sitting on the mantle in our lounge and will be part of the Christmas decorations,

Thanks so much for stopping by the BoBunny blog today.  We hope to see you back tomorrow.

Have a fabulous day!
