Follow this easy step-by-step guide courtesy of craft blogger Laura from Bugs & Fishes. This craft idea makes a lovely gift, and is perfect for Easter, too.
You will need:
Download and print the bunny template. Cut out the pieces and draw around the face and outer ear templates on pastel-coloured card. Draw around the inner ear and nose templates on pale pink paper or card and the eye template on white paper or card. Cut out all the shapes.
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.
With a black pen, draw on the bunny’s mouth, teeth and whiskers. Draw black hearts in the centre of the eyes and colour in.
Download and print the box template and cut out the box shape. Draw around the shape onto a sheet of pastel-coloured card. Draw the fold lines on neatly with a pencil and ruler.
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.
On the back of the bunny’s head, apply glue to the bottom half and stick to the side of the box.
Add a dab of PVA glue to a cotton wool ball and stick it to the opposite end of the box, creating the bunny’s tail.
When the glue has completely dried, fill the box with chocolates or a small gift and close the lid.
