Boo Boo Bunny Tutorial and GIVEAWAY!

*** Fun ETSY giveaway at the end of this post!  Scroll down to enter! ***

One of the worst things about Little Bug walking everywhere now is that he falls a LOT!
I'm sure you can relate.

And falls usually result in bad boo-boos.
And boo-boos need tending too.
Insert... the Boo Boo Bunny!

While this is not an original idea, it may be new to some of you...
Boo Boo Bunnies live in the freezer so they are nice and cold when a boo boo comes.
They also have a place to hold a single ice cube for those big boo boos!

Here is how to make your very own - very fast!

1. Start with any washcloth and lay it out like this.

2. Start rolling one corner toward the middle.

3. Stop rolling when you get to the middle of the washcloth.

4. Do the same to the opposite corner.

5. Fold the washcloth in half with the crease on the outside.

6. Then fold in half the opposite way (bring the loose edges back toward the fold).

7. Put a rubber band around the front of your fold.

8. See the bunny?  You can straighten out his face and ears now if you need to.  And wrap a ribbon or piece of yarn around the rubber band to cover it up!

A lot of people put googly eyes and noses on their bunnies, but I choose to avoid the potential choking hazard.
Plus, I think they are cute as they are!

Boo Boo Bunnies belong in the freezer until the time comes to use them.
Then, simply insert an ice cube into the bunny's body and apply it to the sore spot.
Instant fix!

I'm SO excited for this giveaway from ETSY seller Blue Cloud!!
