DIY: Bunny-Stamped Goodie Bags for Easter

I have a thing for animals - specially cute ones like bunnies, pandas, cats and turtles (oh, who am I kidding, I find most animals cute). And with the days heading to Easter soon, I thought I'd make something with bunnies for this month's Silhouette challenge post. And yes, I've made a bunny necklace, a bunny poster and even a bunny-inspired headband, but life's much better with a lot more bunny-related projects - so I decided to make a bunny stamp to decorate Easter goodie bags (for my siblings). Remember the crane stamp that I did a while ago? I made this similar to that, so most of you may be familiar already. If not, just check that post out to see how to make your own stamp with just craft foam from the store! If you do know, read on to find out how I assembled my goodie bags. 


Supplies:
Kraft bags (kraft paper to make your own goodie bags)
Bunny stamp (template for that is available at the end of the post!)
Circles
Pastel-colored paper
Kraft paper
Scissors
Glue
Ruler 


Make your bunny stamps. I used my Silhouette Portrait to cut mine out, but since it's a relatively easy shape, you can easily hand-cut it yourself. Want to know how to make them from craft foam? Head on over to this post for the details.


Cut out circles bigger than your bunny stamps - since I sized my bunny to about 1.5" across, I cut 2" circles, then stamp your bunny stamp on the center of your circle - I just feel so giddy when I make my own stamps. Do you feel that way, too? I backed my white circles with starbursts.


For added cuteness I made some paper rosettes from pastel-colored paper. After all, it's Easter and it's Spring, so you must have some kind of pastel cuteness going on in there. To make the rosettes, you must cut up two strips of paper (mine measured 1.75" in height) and accordion fold them like in the photo above. It's much easier to do this with a scoring board, but you can also do without. 


Attach both strips on each end, making a circle as shown. They will expand uncontrollably so it's a good idea to stick a circle on the center to hold the folds in place.


I made my own kraft bags as well, using the printed kraft paper found at the dollar store. When I was there a couple of days ago they have a few more designs that's more Easter-appropriate, but I used what I had on hand.


Stick those circles on the center of your rosettes, and then add a few embellishments to finish (I used my DIY enamel dots).


Now all you have to do is stick those pretty rosettes onto your bags and you are done.



I just love the star-printed kraft paper and the addition of enamel dots. For a simpler version - just stamp them onto your bags and you'll be good to go!

  1. These are so sweet! If you didn't want to break out your scoring board, you can make the accordion folds with your silhouette--I just made some for my twin daughters' birthday decor! I love your bunnies!

    1. I make accordion folds with the silhouette for bigger projects since my scoring board is tiny. :) Thanks!

  4. The stamps are adorable. I'm totally going to repost this! Also, I'm going to show my dress form thread holder, only it won't be complete, because I'm still deciding what to use it to hold. ^_^
