You will need:

Step 2

Stick the inner ear shapes to the outer ears and stick the tips behind the large heart shape. Stick the heart-shaped eyes and nose on the large heart shape to create the bunny’s head.

Step 5

Construct the box by folding inwards at the fold lines. For a neater fold, score the fold lines with scissors (ensure this part is done by an adult) before folding. Apply glue to the fold tabs and stick together.
