Hopped up on Treats
The other day we bought a bag of chocolate Cadbury mini eggs and it barely lasted a day in the studio. If that’s any indication, Easter is a perfect excuse to indulge is some sweets. As usual, we designed a new holiday treat box for Easter. Introducing – adorable bunny treat boxes! The bunny ears make it super easy to secure the box together, and you can also use the blank outline of the box design to make your own bunny characters.
Assembling your Treat Boxes
Our designer Krista created both a PDF version and an SVG version of these boxes, so you can either cut by hand or use a cutting machine. We cut these with our Cricut onto white cardstock, and then cut the facial details onto black cardstock. Before gluing the black eyes and whiskers onto the face (we used a glue dot roller), we used a soft pink art marker to brush on some cute ears and rosy cheeks. You can also use crayons, colored pencils or any other markers of choice. With the PDF version, the bunny’s face is printed right onto the side of the box, so you just need to trim and fold. The dashed lines on the boxes are score lines to show you where to fold.
If you want to get a little creative with these Easter bunny treat boxes, print the blank template in the PDF file and draw on your own bunny face. The final touch to completing these bunnies is to add a fluffy tail. We used an extra small pom pom maker to make a simple yarn pom with white yarn and attached it with hot glue. You can easily buy pre-made pom poms at your local craft store, use a felt ball or even just glue on a regular cotton ball. Super simple!
Inspiration for Easter
Once you’re done making your Easter treat cartons, we recommend filling them with jelly beans or candy eggs of any kind. Of course, you could always fill these with carrots instead 😉 We added these cuties to our kid’s table setting for Easter brunch – watch my appearance on The Today Show where I shared my designs for a kid’s Easter table and an adult Easter brunch table!

I am unable to download the SVG file for the printable Easter bunny treat boxes. I have tried it on different computers, and different web browser. Every time I select download svg, it asks me if I want to become a member, or sign in. But I am already signed in because I am able to write this comment… I am unsure how to proceed. I became a member just for this svg file to make for my kid’s class for Easter.

Mmm the ears seem to be a problem with everybody. I’m also having a problem with the ears and I seem to tear the slit 😣
I don’t have the cutter I downloaded the pdf do you think this is my problem. Help I joined last year to be able to make the cute treat boxes for this year.
Thanks a mill
Love hot sunny south africa (cindy)
I’m sorry! Text weight paper or a light cardstock is ideal so the paper won’t rip. You can cut the slit a bit larger, too, if that helps!
[…] Popcorn, jelly beans and more. We are in love with these carrot treat boxes! How precious are they in that brown bag Easter basket?| Lia Griffith […]
i have the same problem..can’t download the bunny treat boxes….and i’m a member….
Make sure you’re logged in, and perhaps try a different web browser. Some browsers (internet explorer, specifically) don’t keep you signed in for long, I’m not sure why.
I found these very hard to assemble without having to fold and bend the ears to get them into the slits.
Am I missing an easier process?
You do have to bend the ears a little bit, but not so much that they ruin them. I glued the ears together first before pushing them through the slits, but it might be easier to leave them unglued?
lia could you please give instruction for assembly? I can not seem to keep the ears together… thanks… trish
Once the pattern has been cut and scored, fold up both sides with the bunny ears, then glue the ears together (we use a Scotch dot tape roller). Once those are secure, bring up the sides and slip the ears through the slits. Hope that helps 🙂
I have already paid and signed up to be a member. Why can’t I log on to the
Bunny treat box!! I am very disappointed!!
