𝐏𝐚𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐧𝐞𝐝 𝐁𝐮𝐧𝐧𝐲 𝐄𝐠𝐠 - 𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐛𝐚𝐛𝐲 𝐛𝐮𝐧𝐧𝐲 𝐩𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞


Create colourful Easter and Spring eggs to hang on your wall or turn them into lovely cards! Use any colours you’d like. Painting the eggs with watercolour paints is fun and compliments the cutout design.







  1. Fold a Square piece of paper into a triangle

  2. Fold it again into another triangle

  3. Trace the bunny image (from above) any direction you want making sure the edge hits along two of the folded areas.

  4. Cut out the image. Don’t cut on the fold, just on the design, that way the bunny image sticks together, like a snowflake or paper chain.

  5. Open it up to view your pattern and put it aside.

6. Paint a large egg that will fit your bunny cutout. Use paper or cardboard. Paint the paper or colour it with whatever you’d like.


7. Glue your bunny cutout onto your large painted paper egg!

If the paper starts to fold after Gluing on the design, weigh it down over night with some heavy books,


𝐋𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐥𝐲 𝐌𝐢𝐧𝐢 𝐛𝐮𝐧𝐧𝐲 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐬 - 𝐒𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐁𝐮𝐧𝐧𝐲 𝐋𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐬 𝐌𝐞 & 𝐒𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐛𝐮𝐧𝐧𝐲 𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐬 𝐘𝐨𝐮!

These adorable books have one bunny on the front, but once you open it up, another bunny friend appears, with the cutest cutout heart between them. Gift these mini bunny booklets to someone you love or make some for yourself!

Choose from a few different styles. Add your own creative to the cover and the inside.


Cut out several white pieces of paper together with our free bunny template and staple it all together where the arrows indicate.

Make the cover out of felt or coloured paper.

Get extra creative: try adding string embroidery to the wreath, follow along the wreath pattern to make the embroidery. A perfect template to follow for kids learning to embroider and sew. You can try to make your own embroidery as well.


You can paint or write your own message on the front cover or use one of the designs we have come up with.

This is the perfect little book to write special self affirmations onto or dreams and goals you want to record.



Turn them into nature books and write what you see on your nature walk.



𝙋𝙖𝙥𝙚𝙧 𝙍𝙤𝙡𝙡 𝘽𝙪𝙣𝙣𝙞𝙚𝙨!

Grab this template from our store bunny pack (free this week!)

Cut out these cute bunny templates and simply glue them onto a paper roll. You can even play around with clothing designs by adding paper or felt clothing to your bunnies!


We glued them onto a toilet paper roll and then cut away part of the roll around the head, to make the silhouette stand out better. You can colour your bunny and draw the clothing directly onto the paper or just make the bunnies and play with them as is.




If you’re feeling extra creative, add some props to your paper bunny toys. This paper roll carrot is adorable! Cut the top into a zig zag pattern and tape the one side of the bottom together, if you leave the one side not taped it will still stand up. We painted ours with Acrylic paint, but washable paint will work too.

In the Spring Bunny pack you will also find nature activity eggs, and affirmation cards. Hide them outside and have a mindful nature scavenger hunt!

𝐒𝐩𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐒𝐮𝐧𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐫 - 𝐛𝐮𝐧𝐧𝐲 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐬𝐧𝐨𝐰𝐝𝐫𝐨𝐩 𝐭𝐞𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐞


Directions:

  1. Cut egg shapes out of cardboard, creating different sizes are fun!

  2. Cut the design you want out of the cardboard using an xacto knife, or scissors. Use caution for this step and an adult should be the one cutting the design. Use our free printable to make our bunnies and snowdrop silhouette.

  3. Glue coloured tissue paper onto the back side by placing glue around the silhouette onto cardboard, then place the tissue paper onto the cardboard and press down. Don‘t put the glue onto the tissue paper first or it could rip.

  4. Allow it to dry and then turn over your cardboard cutout.

  5. Put glue over all of the cardboard (not the tissue paper).

  6. Place the Lace that you roughly cut out bigger than the cardboard egg onto the cardboard and press down.

  7. Allow the glue to dry.

  8. Cut the excess lace that hangs over the edge of the cardboard egg.

  9. Now it is done, hang it in a window!

For further instructions you may want to check out our other blog post ‘Cardboard & lace Suncatcher eggs.

You don’t need to add the lace, they look great without them too.


Bunny Basket:


Use the same cute bunny and add it to a recycled basket! For full instructions on how to make a cardboard basket click on our Nature Basket blog post, then add the bunny to the front!






Make a vine bunny carrot toss game and add this fun banner to decorate!

-the banner is on the free PDF download.

We made felt bean-bag carrots by cutting out a triangle from orange felt and sewing along the side. Add the beans into the hole at the end and the bottom of the green felt leaves and sew it closed!



𝔹𝕦𝕟𝕟𝕪 𝕡𝕒𝕡𝕖𝕣 𝕔𝕙𝕒𝕚𝕟 𝕨𝕚𝕥𝕙 𝕔𝕦𝕥𝕠𝕦𝕥 𝕙𝕖𝕒𝕣𝕥


Add any colour you want and keep making it longer!

Fold the paper into a fan making sure it’s the exact width as the bunny printable. Trace the bunny template and cut it out. The flat part on both side should line up the papers edge. When you cut, cut through ever layer of the fold at once.

Pull open your cutout and voila! tape two or more together to make it extra long.

Hang it in a window frame to enjoy the cutout heart or on the wall!
