Bunny Week: Peter Cottontail Slimline Tea Wallet

Hello, Friends!  Today’s Bunny Week make is a super simple Peter Cottontail Slimline Tea Wallet Card. Once again, I am working with scraps from Memory Place “Peter’s World” paper collection. (Linked below).  Like all slimline cards, this one measures 3 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and is made from one sheet of 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper.  This is a very quick and easy make, fun to give, and easily adaptable for any theme or occasion.

Peter Cottontail Slimline Tea Wallet Tips and Tricks

  • First, score an 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of gray cardstock on the long side (landscape orientation) at 3 1/2″, 7″, and 10 1/2″.
  • Now fold along the scored lines to form a side opening slimline card base.
  • Next, machine stitch the focal image on a panel of  3″ x 8 1/8″ cream cardstock.  My panel of designer paper was about 2 3/4″ x 6″.
  • Then mat this cream panel on a slightly larger panel of light blue cardstock.
  • Now cut a scrap of the carrot pattern to fill in the gap between the focal image and the bottom of the cream cardstock.  Back this panel with foam tape or waste chipboard and adhere below the focal image.
  • Next  wrap half a doily around the left hand side of the cream panel.  Then decorate the card front with flowers and leaves from your stash.  I found another small doily (I think this is an ancient Prima embellishment) .
  • Locate the tab that we saved from yesterday’s post.  Tuck this between the layers on the right hand side of the card.  Affix a resin keyhole here. (Retired Melissa Frances resin)
  • Stamp a greeting on a small tab from the paper collection.
  • Add some burlap bows and your work is done!
A Peek Inside

Line the inside of the card as seen above.  Create a pocket from grey cardstock and adhere it over the 1/2″ flap on the right.  Tuck in some teas that match the paper collection.  Then hold everything together with a lovely little binder clip.

That’s it!  You could easily substitute chocolate for the tea, or mix it up if you prefer.

I have one last bunny project to share with you all tomorrow for Throwback Thursday.  I saved the best for last!

Thanks for stopping by!




** Please note.  Many of the items used in today’s project have been in my stash a long time.  I will link to the products I can still find below.  You can substitute goodies from your stash for the other items.

    OK now you have done it! I have become addicted to the slimline card and you have gone one step farther and created a pocket on the inside! Now it’s a slimline folio and I’m off to the races. You have totally inspired me!

    I can’t even tell you how much I love this! It is just adorable. I recently discovered you on a blog hop and now I follow you on Insta, too; every time you post, I swoon. I’m a card maker and your style is not my style, but seriously, I am crushing on your designs. Thank you for including the how-tos for this, pretty sure I’d lose my mind before I ever completed one of your creations, but I can still love them.

    I am really enjoying seeing all your bunny cards! Slimline cards? I have a concern about all the tuck in items falling out when the card is opened…gravity usually wins! Peter Rabbit images are so vintage cute…adding the machine stitching adds to that vintage look, too. I always enjoy reading all the comments from your subscribers. Happy Hop! Hop! to all!

    Cute as a button! Love those buttons and slimline cards are so much fun. Stitching adds that special touch that I find so appealing. Another great job!
