I rarely use the envelopes that come with cards. I usually attach the card to the front of a gift bag to double as an embellishment for the gift. I don’t know if that makes me lazy, or brilliant- but either way, I have an abundance of envelopes.
I was thrilled to find a use for my extra envelopes with this whimsical Easter treats for kids bunny holders!
Supplies needed to make your own bunny envelope Easter treats for kids:
- A7 Sized Envelopes (you can use whatever size or color you have on hand! I used cream, white and kraft A-7 size)
- 1/2″ Pink Pom Poms
- 12mm Google Eyes
- Pastel Chalks (optional)
- Black Pen
- Pink Cardstock
- Clear Treat Bags and candy of your choice
Wait! Before you start thinking that this is going to be too hard to sketch out a bunny, it is not. Trust me. Use a pencil. Any inconsistencies are going to bring character to your bunny!
You can use a CD, or a round lid or plate to get the curve of the head. Make sure the ears do not make a full point at the top. We are leaving the ears intact to make the treat holder sturdier.
Once you are satisfied with how your bunny looks, begin cutting your envelope. If you cut just inside your pencil lines, you will not have to erase them. Remember to leave the tips of the ears intact.
Then, using your pencil, sketch the outlined shape a little smaller.
Use these templates to trace additional envelope bunnies and inner ears.
Adhere a pair of google eyes, and a pink pom pom nose.
Then, using a black pen- give your bunny a mouth. Start from the center of the pink pom pom nose, and make a half circle on either side. You can use a pencil first, if you would like, and then trace it in pen.
