How To Make Cute Paper Bunny Treat Bags

The great thing about these paper bunny treat bags, they are quick to make, cost almost nothing and make an adorable Easter gift.

After stitching paper for my Valentine’s Map hearts for the first time, I got the idea to stitch a paper bunny for Easter. Like those Map hearts, the bunnies are very addictive, and I made lots of them.

I also got to use some fabulous printed papers I’d saved from a calendar.

What you need to make the Easter treat bags

  • I use whatever I can find, craft papers, wrapping paper scraps & wallpaper samples for decorative papers. I adore her simple Scandinavian prints; I used an old Lotta Jansdotter calendar for some of my paper bunnies.

Top Tip: Many shops will give you free wallpaper samples; there are so many fantastic wallpaper designs. All you need is approximately one A4 piece of paper for each bunny.

How to Make a Paper Bunny treat bag

Step 1: Firstly, download and cut out the paper bunny template. Or you can attempt to draw your own.

Step 2: Once you have decided on the paper you will use (it should be A4 in size), fold it in half lengthways and draw around your template.

Step 3: Then cut out your bunny shape. You should end up with two identical paper bunnies. Place the wrong sides together and stitch around the edge, leaving a gap at the bottom. Use a sewing machine for this.

Step 4: Fill with your Easter treats through the gap and sew it up to close.

Step 5: Add a small pompom for the paper bunny tail (tutorial below). Also, you can add a name tag using a small luggage label and some baker’s twine.

I enjoyed making these bunnies as I love stitching paper on the sewing machine. Every season I find any excuse to make treat bags with paper and stitch. I’ve also made similar DIY denim bunnies for my mantle.

I made some cute Halloween bags three ways in the shape of pumpkins, bats and Ghosts. I’ve made two types of stitched paper Christmas crafts a gingerbread kraft paper garland and a repurposed bag advent calendar.

A Quick Way To Make Pom Pom Tails.

You probably know how to make pom poms, but just in case you don’t, I’ll show you my quick way to make lots of pom poms at once.

All you need is a metal coat hanger, wool and scissors.

Step 1: Open up the coat hanger and mould it into a rectangular shape.

Step 2: Wind your wool around the coat hanger at least 20 times. The more wool winds, the bushier the pom poms.

Step 3: Using a piece of wool, tie around the wool strands at even spaces along the length of the wool. These will be the middle of your pompoms.

The more bits of wool you tie, the more pom poms you will make, but smaller. This is easier to visualize by looking at the picture below.

Step 4: Cut the wool between these tied middle pieces and cut the wool off the end of the coat hangers.

To finish, fluff up and trim your pom poms as desired. Stick a pompom to each paper bunny treat bag.

These paper bunny bags are great for giving out treats at Easter, but I think they will also make great party favours.

We will spend Easter in a beautiful part of the English countryside, the Consall Valley. My nephews, who made the patchwork fabric eggs, will also be there, so I’m going to take these paper bunny bags with me. They are just perfect for an Easter egg hunt.

If you like these paper bunnies, you might want to check out these other bunny craft ideas and more Easter crafts. I used some old bed springs to make cute upcycled spring bunnies. I’ve also repurposed sweaters into bunny pillows.

This isn’t my first Easter craft that uses a wire coat hanger; I’ve also used one before to make a Marimekko Easter egg wreath.

These bunnies are very Scandi in style, which I love. You should check out my other Scandi and Nordic crafts.
