Paper Basket Bunny Favors

Design little paper basket bunny favors. Fill the favors with either basket fillers or use tulle! These little basket favors look adorable with different color-coordinated cardstock and would be a wonderful surprise to guests at your Easter table. The paper basket bunnies could even double as table place-cards.



1. After a quick google search I found this cute template for making these paper basket bunnies. Visit inkspired musings for a collection of Easter cut-outs. Towards the bottom of the collection is the paper basket bunny pattern. I traced the pattern on cardstock and then cut it out.

2. Next, I scored the the bottom to form a box and fold the bunnies up and attached their hands together.

3. Once the bunny baskets were formed I placed candy inside and added tulle on top. I also attached rhinestone eyes.
