The Easter Bunny clipart is a vector graphics image that I created to use for a photo stand-up frame where kids could get their picture taken at our church’s Easter carnival. I cut out the perimeter on my CNC router and mounted ink pens in the router to mark the basic image.
One of the carnival volunteers used the pen marks as guides to paint in the details. The funny part is that the picture was supposed to have been a bunny leaning over an Easter egg. In the original, I hadn’t added the egg decorations so the lady painting it thought the egg was the bunny’s body. It worked great, but I added in the decorations so now you can clearly see that it’s an Easter egg.
In the PDF file I have included a couple of dimensions to give you an idea of how large I made mine. The oval cutout for the face is just about the right size and height for a child. Small children needed a small step stool to reach the opening, and big kids (aka adults) had to squat down a bit.
As I mentioned earlier, I cut it on my CNC router out of a half sheet of 1/2" MDO plywood. MDO is great for painting signs that will be used outdoors. It holds up well to the weather and usually has a smooth, primed surface that is easy to paint. If you want to make a photo stand-up, you’ll need to secure it somehow in an upright position. A friend of mine fastened the Easter bunny to a plywood base using a pair of inexpensive shelf brackets.
Keeping with the spirit of sharing as much of what I create as possible, in addition to including the vector artwork files and the PDF drawing, I also included a JPG image. If you just want the picture then right click on the large image below and save it to your computer.
The Easter Bunny clipart was originally created as a tool path file from my CNC router programming software and then exported to a DXF (AutoCAD) file. This and the PDF, AI (Adobe Illustrator), and EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) file formats are all included in a ZIP file.
