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 the first time for my Valentine Map hearts I got the idea to stitch a paper bunny for Easter. Like those Map hearts, the bunnies are very addictive and I ended up making lots of them.
I also got to use some fabulous printed papers that I’d saved from a calendar.

If you like these paper bunnies you might want to check out some of my other 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.
