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 container 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 – tune into our Easter segment on The Today Show on April 11th to see both our kid’s and adult brunch tables!
