3 Surprisingly Easy Easter Projects You Can Make!! (Project #2 The Bunny Wrapper)



With Easter just around the corner, now's a great time to get started on some projects!
We've put together 3 surprisingly easy projects that won't take you long to make. 
You can even recruit some "little hands" to help you!

Project #1 - The BunnyWrapper


The Bunny Wrapper is another really easy Easter project! All you need is a plain natural paper grocery bag (we used a 2lb.size) and of course an apple (or an orange!) With so many children having allergies (and many parents trying to reduce their children's sugar intake), this "healthy treat" is a great alternative.


Lay your bag flat on your table and using a sharp pair of scissors, trim off the sides of the bag.
Then, trim the top of your bag to look like ears, as in the photo above.



Now place your apple in the middle of the bag. Gather the 2 sides up and using a length 
of ribbon, tie a bow just below the ears to secure the bag. That's it! Pretty easy and really 
won't take long to do, even with "little hands" helping you!

We have our samples in the Store if you'd like to come by and see them.
Hopefully we've inspired you to give this Easter project a try! Looking for more ideas?

3 Surprisingly Easy Easter Projects You Can Make!! (Project #1 The Bunny Bag)

We've put together 3 surprisingly easy projects that won't take you long to make. 
You can even recruit some "little hands" to help you!

Project #1 - The Bunny Bag


The Bunny Bag is a really easy Easter project! All you need is a plain white paper grocery bag (we 
used a 2lb. and a 4lb. size but really any small size will work). Lay your bag flat on your table 
and using a sharp pair of scissors, trim the top of your bag to look like ears, as in the photo above.


Next, using a pink (or black) fine point marker or gel pen, 
draw 2 eyes and a nose like we did in the photo above.


Now you're ready to fill your Bunny Bag with all sorts of yummy treats! Once filled, use a length 
of ribbon to tie a bow just below the ears to secure the bag. That's it! Pretty easy and really 
won't take long to do, even with "little hands" helping you!

3 Surprisingly Easy Easter Projects You Can Make!! (Project #3 The Glam Bunnies)



With Easter just around the corner, now's a great time to get started on some projects!
We've put together 3 surprisingly easy projects that won't take you long to make. 

Project #3 - The Glam Bunnies




For The Glam Bunnies project, we actually made 2 different sized bunnies. 

This photo shows the larger bunny.






For the larger Glam Bunny, we used the double cupcake carrier (shown above, opened and closed). The cupcake insert can be removed if you wish to use the carrier for something other than cupcakes.



This photo is the smaller Glam Bunny. 



 For the smaller Glam Bunny, we used the single cupcake carrier (shown above, opened and closed). The cupcake insert can be removed if you wish to use the carrier for something other than cupcakes.


For the ears and feet, we used Glitterati gold and silver paper (from Envelopments). Using  
sharp scissors, simply cut our feet and ear shapes, as well as some whiskers.  Attach the
 feet using glue or double sided tape. For the ears, pinch the bottoms a bit so the ears stand 
up a bit better (use a stapler to secure). Then attach using glue or double sided tape.

 
 We added small satin ribbon bows at the base of the ears to hide where they're attached 
(plus bows are cute!!)


Now don't forget the bums!! We made small pompoms using tulle 
netting and attached with double sided tape.


Now you're ready to fill your Glam Bunnies with all sorts of yummy treats!
 That's it...pretty easy and really won't take long to do!

We have our samples in the Store if you'd like to come by and see them.
