I don’t know why, but these days there’s something about bunnies that has me going completely gaga. Maybe it’s because they’re so darn freakin’ cute? Or perhaps it’s because they’re so darn freakin’ cute AND I’m nesting/clucky/hormonal from being pregnant.
Either way, little rabbits are becoming a hard and fast favourite in my book, so I’ve got my fingers and toes crossed that you like them too!
This project is a great one to make for (or with) the littles in your life – they can have a nice, chilled out craft session before they take their bunny boxes and rampage through the garden in search of chocolate eggs. 😉
These boxes also make great packaging for little Easter treats for your friends, workmates or anyone you’d like to spoil with sugar. If you’re a bunny fan like me, grab some cardboard and a pair of scissors and let’s get crafting!
- Bunny box printable (see the end of this post to download)
- White A4 card
- Bone folder
- Glue or double-sided tape
Download the bunny box template (see the end of this post for the free file) and print it onto white A4 card.
Then score along each of the faint white lines in the template using a ruler and bone folder.
Once you’ve scored along all the lines, cut out each of the boxes with a pair of scissors.
Fold the boxes along the lines you scored in Step 1. As you do this, the box will start to take shape. Make sure you fold inwards so that the printed side of the box is on the outside.
Apply glue or double-sided tape to each of the 4 small tabs on the box.
Stick each tab to the side of the box that’s directly next to it.
Once your tabs are stuck down, fill your box with treats and then hand them out to your kids and friends!
It’s funny, I make up boxes like this all the time to hand out as gifts, but I haven’t actually gone on an egg hunt or done any of the usual kid-related Easter activities since… well, since I was a kid I guess. It’s pretty unreal to think that all that will change once our little girl comes into this world. And you know what? I can’t wait! 🙂
