Item details

Create an adorable Easter Bunny figure that doubles as an adorable lamp. You just need simple materials and our PDF pattern! Kids will love this light-up figure beside their bed. Kind of like a foot tall night light you can customize! Makes a great baby shower gift when complete or a great project for Easter.

This cuddly little guy sits on your table or shelf and gives light to a little reading corner or wherever you need. It's a great piece for adding character to a child's room.

Lamp looks beautiful in white, though you may try using thin, colored card stock (be sure it's transparent before building) or use watercolors to paint your own design! You can also add your own accessories (ribbon, bonnet, etc.) to make it even more adorable!

Approximate Dimensions:
14 in. tall, 10.5 in. wide, and 10 in. front to back.

Difficulty Level: Medium
Pages: 12


This purchase is for the pattern and instructions only. You will need card stock or other material, access to a printer, scissors or a craft knife, and glue or tape to build the figure. To use as a lamp, you will also need a pre-made lamp base or basic supplies from the hardware store (typical cost should be less than $10 + light bulb). The pattern and instructions will be available immediately for download once you finish your purchase.

Fine Print:
· You may make copies of the patterns for personal or educational use; no commercial use is permitted without written permission from Tetra Variations. We’re usually pretty happy to give permission if it’s a one-off kind of thing and you give us credit, so go ahead and ask. We’re really nice, we promise.
· Public or large-scale distribution of patterns by digital or physical means is prohibited. So don’t post this on the internet, please; we beg of you. We’re not exactly making bank here, so it’s tough to lose that income.
· Purchase of patterns does not constitute transfer of ownership or rights to the patterns. It’s mine, it’s all mine, my precious!
· Tetra Variations is not liable for injuries sustained when following any provided instructions. Please be responsible when using scissors, knives, glue, electrical components, or other tools for construction. We’d hate to hear that you’d hurt yourself building something. Unless it’s a really minor and sort of silly injury and you laugh it off and post it on Youtube. Then we’d definitely watch that.


FAQs

Patterns include a PDF with parts and instructions. You must print out the parts on paper or cardstock to build your creation. Most patterns can be downloaded immediately after payment. In a few cases, you will receive, after a delay for processing, an invitation to join a Dropbox folder where you can download the necessary files. Kits are shipped to you with a pattern and pieces already cut out for your convenience.

For patterns, you will need a PDF reader such as Adobe Acrobat, card stock or card board (old file folders can work great!), access to a printer or printing service, scissors or a craft (e.g., X-acto) knife (both can be helpful), and a cutting surface (self-healing mat, old cereal box, or something similar). For both patterns and kits, you will need glue or strong tape. We also recommend having something to watch or listen to in the background while you work.

The patterns are intended for US Letter sized paper (8.5 x 11″) or A4 (some printers may cut off edges when printing. In such cases, be sure to refer to the PDFs on your screen). For paper type, we recommend 65 lb card stock (170 gsm). This card holds up fairly well and comes in a wide variety of colors. 110 lb (200 gsm) stock will also work well. Alternatively, you can trace the pattern onto old, sturdy materials like index files, manila folders, or cereal boxes. Some customers have also used thin foam core and cardboard. These will require eliminating tabs from the pattern and requires care when folding.

Most white glues work quite well. We're fond of Alene's Tacky Glue. Note that only a small amount of glue is necessary – too much, and the paper will dampen and warp. Some customers have found hot glue to be effective, though it can be tricky in tight spaces and be bulky. If using tape, clear packing tape is a fast and strong way of constructing our patterns, though it can be difficult to paint (a coat of primer can help). Some customers have used magic or invisible tape effectively, though we recommend taking care that the tape is strong and adheres well.

Unfortunately, it's difficult to say. It will vary depending on the size and complexity of the pattern/kit, your skill as a builder, and the methods and materials you use to build. Particularly simple patterns (3-5 pages) can take about an hour if done quickly. Some other patterns (17+ pages) may take 8 or more hours of work if done with precision.

Our patterns all come with estimates of difficulty: * Easy * Easy-Medium * Medium * Medium-Hard * Hard However, it's difficult to say for sure how challenging any particular person will find our designs. We've seen 6 year old boys put together our most challenging kits with no trouble. On the other hand, we've had a few adults give up in frustration with simpler patterns. Some call our instructions and method of building simple. Others say it's quite complicated. This variety makes it hard to say what you'll think. If you're a fairly crafty type of person, we think you'll find it fairly straightforward. Some reviewers have called the process "fun" and "relaxing".

A few do, particularly the video game patterns, but most do not. Printing onto colored card stock can produce some lovely results, and some patterns have recommendations on colors to print each page to. Alternatively, you can paint your finished designs and create something intricate and wonderful.

We may be able to build and ship products for you, depending on our workload at the time. Bear in mind that this requires additional costs due to the labor involved. We're happy to consider custom requests for patterns and kits, so please ask! We may have to turn down some requests due to licensing issues, feasibility, or other matters, but we've had many happy customers bring great ideas that we enjoy bringing to life.

    Muy bien hechos los planos y muy bien explicado el proceso. Increíble figura! Lo único que mejoraría sería ponerle una tapa en la parte inferior para que no se vea el interior de la figura.
