This month’s Movie Monday Challange is here again! So for something a little different we got to chose our movie as long as it was based on Easter or Spring! So of course with all of the fun bunny things I have been making lately, I wanted to make something about an all time favourite movie that my kids loved when they were little. The Tale of Peter Rabbit, not only did they love the movie but they also adored the books! So with some help of Miss Mustard Milk Paint and an old frame, I’m sharing my repurposed Peter Rabbit Frame for the movie challenge.

Supplies needed:

  • Old Frame
  • Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint – I used Farmhouse White for this project
  • Miss Mustard Seed Beezwax
  • Paint Brush
  • Soft Cloth
  • Silhouette Cameo Machine
  • Yellow Scrapbooking Paper – You can use any colour you like really.
  • White Vinyl
  • Transfer paper
  •  Scrapbooking Double Sided Tape
  • Bunny Template – I hand drew mine but Pinterest has plenty of free ones that you can choose from. Just adapt them to your frame size.
  • Visoflex – Same as heat and bond
  • Scrap White Material

 

It most certainly was one of my favourite things to do when my kids were little and read to them all of Beatrix Potter Books! But The Tale of Peter Rabbit was the main one that made my kid’s eyes light up like dinner plates. We would snuggle on the lounge and read away, with lots of giggles of coarse. Gee those happy memories make my heart sing.

Step 1 – Mix 1 part water and one part milk mix in a plastic cup. Leave to let the paint combine.

Step 2 – Using your Silhouette Machine create the following saying:

” Once upon a time
there were four little
rabbits, and their names were —
Flopsy,
Mopsy,
Cotton Tail
and Peter.”
– Beatrix Potter

Send the verse to cut onto the white Vinyl. Weed out any excess vinyl. Place the transfer paper over the top and using a store card burnish the lettering to ensure it transfers. Cut the scrapbooking paper down to the size of the backing piece of your frame. Attach with double sided scrapbooking tape. Transfer over the lettering.

Handy Hint:

Be very gentle when removing the transfer paper as you don’t want to rip the paper. This is why I recommend only using scrapbooking paper as it is a lot thicker.

Step 3 – Mix your MMS paint before applying to the frame. Then apply 3 coats to your frame letting each coat dry in between. Make sure you also mix your paint with each coat that you apply.

Handy Hint:

If the frame is glossy at all be sure to give it a good sand before you commence painting.

Step 5 – Add some wax to the frame using a soft cloth to seal.

Step 6 –  Trace out your bunny template onto the Visoflex. Make sure you flip the template so you get two bunnies facing each other. Cut out the bunnies and iron them to the wrong size of your material. Cut around the lines and remove the backing paper.

Step 7 – Using a warm iron with no steam, iron the bunnies onto the paper. You may have to go over them a couple of times to heat up the glue so that it adheres to the paper. Be sure not to hold the iron on there for too long otherwise the paper will wrinkle. Also, don’t iron over the vinyl as it will melt it!!

Step 8 – Pop all of your hard work back into the frame.

  1. Sam, I have fond memories of reading those stories to my littles as well. In fact, my daughter had a ‘Peter Rabbit’ themed room when she was born. All that to say that I love this project of yours…it speaks to me! And since I’m still quite new with my cricut, I am thrilled to have more ideas on how to use it.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    Hugs, Lynn

    1. Aren’t they just the sweetest books Lynn! Your daughter’s room must have been so very sweet! I’m sure once you get started with your Cricut you won’t stop!

  2. This is adorable Sam, Peter Rabbit is such a terrific quote. I also really like the soft yellow background and of course the way you updated the frame. Everything about this project says it was made by Raggedy Bits, love it.

  3. The frame turned out great! I actually have a bunch of old frames I need to paint and refinish soon, hopefully, mine will turn out as great.
