Easter Bunny Egg Box and Card

You will need to right click on the template and save to your computer. You can then print the template out onto cardstock. It should be A4 size when printing.

Cut Egg box out of cardstock. And score along the dotted lines.
Prepare and attach your bunny before folding.
Cut bunny shapes out. For the little pads, eyes and nose I used a normal hole punch. Assemble your feet and ears. Add your ears to your box. Followed by the body, feet and then add your eyes and nose. I used some string for whiskers and added the nose on a glue dot, to give it a bit of dimension. (See picture below)

Fold along all score lines
Add some double sided tape as shown and fold your box up and stick together.

Add further decoration.

For the Card I used the same idea and Bunny Pattern. I cut an egg shape card with a flat bottom.

Have Fun and give it to some bunny special!!!

9” Ribbon

Cut 6” x 6” Square from cardstock (you can get 4 baskets from one sheet)
Score at 1 ½” on all sides

Tip: If you don’t have a special scorer, use your paper trimmer as a guide. Use
the back of a butter knife to get a nice score line

Cut on all four sides as shown

Fold along all scored edges
Put some double sided tape on your box as shown.

Place your ribbon as shown. I put another piece of double sided tape over my
ribbon for added strength

Fold up smaller sides and then fold the larger side with the ribbon as shown.

Lay your ribbon over onto the other side and fold up as per the other side.

Decorate as desired.

Gift Cone

This gift cone is super quick and easy and looks lovely to give to someone.

Cut a large circle - I cut a 15cm dia circle. If you don't have a circle cutter use a small plate or bowl as a template. ** Note you can make your circle as big or small as you like** I found this size was a nice size.

I have used my corner rounder to punch a scalloped border around the edge

Gently roll your circle into a cone shape. Unroll and add some glue or very strong double sided tape and roll up again. Decorate as desired.

I have used a ziplock bag and cut off the ziplock section to hold some lollies inside my cone. You could add chocolates, soap, jewellery - anything!!!

Have fun!!!
