Easter is coming, and it's one of my favorite holidays because it signifies Spring and I LOVE the light pastel colors synonymous with Easter. So to get in the spirit, I started crafting and came up with this adorable Free Printable Bunny Easter Basket Template.
The Story Behind This Easter Basket Template
What is cuter than a bunny? Seriously, don't you just love watching the viral video with the bunnies in tumblers sleeping. So stinking cute. And if you want adorable bunnies, without the poop and needing to remember to feed them, make up an army of these little bunny boxes. Just look at their sweet little faces.
And to make them even more adorable, I added little pom pom feet and cotton ball tails. Bunnies need to be fluffy. Now instead of staring at my mistake box on my desk, I have an adorable little bunny smiling at me, and holding a treat.
How To Make This Bunny Easter Basket
These bunny boxes are super easy to make.
Supplies needed are simple too:
- White 8x11 Cardstock. Cardstock is preferable to regular paper just to give the bunny basket more thickness and stability
- Glue Stick and/or Glue Gun
- Crayons or Markers if you want to decorate further or don't have a color printer.
Just print out this basket template PDF and cut along the solid lines. Then score and fold along all the dotted lines.
Glue the tabs (I used a regular school glue stick). I started by gluing the tabs on either side of the front, then ended at the back, securing the back tab at the same time as the bottom tabs.
To add the handle, add some glue to the inside of the box just before the side fold. Then do the same on the other side and secure the handle.
Finish them off by glueing small white pom poms on the bottom front and a cotton ball on the bottom of the back. I used my hot glue gun for this.
Now fill them with a little Easter grass, then add your favorite treats. I am a huge sucker for Cadbury Mini Eggs so I loaded them up with some. I'll probably eat all the Cadbury Mini Eggs and fill them with jelly beans or malted eggs for the kids, haha!
Since I have a few more weeks until Easter, I can create a bunny basket army. Little bunnies in every room... sounds perfect to me!
