  2. Punch two black circles and one light pink circle for bunny eyes and nose and glue them to the die cut. Draw a black mouth. Shade the edges of the bunny with gray chalk. Shade the corners of the mouth and the centers of the ears with pink chalk, blending to soften. Punch two tiny holes on each side of the nose and weave the wire whiskers through the holes.
