This project is just adorable – perfect for Easter and also baby shower favors – the Bunny holds a cello tube that you can fill with small candies such as Jelly Beans and M&Ms or anything else you can think of…

Isn’t he cute? And SO fun to make!  And what a great little treat to give to kids – they will LOVE them!

And those Cello Tubes?  They have a clear seal at one end that works beautifully since it keeps your goodies in the tube and is almost invisible thus keeping the cute look of your gift.

You can leave him as above or you can add cute paws to him holding onto the Tube…

Something NEW I am offering on Tutorial Tuesday…lots of you have asked and so I am now offering a kit of consumable supplies to make my project!  You will find details about this at the bottom of this page!

And don’t worry – my Tutorials will continue to be and will always be free every week!

Where can you get those Cello Tubes? They come in packages of 20 or 50 – find out more at the bottom of this page!

Here is my tutorial so that you can make your very own adorable Bunny – at the end of this tutorial you will find a printable version too so that you can print it out and keep it for reference.

Firstly you need to gather supplies – you will need cardstocks, a small cotton wool ball, a Cello Tube and some Linen Thread.

Next you need to punch and die cut shapes from cardstock – I used the colors Whisper White, Pink Pirouette and Basic Black.

You need to cut the following shapes:

4 x White Ovals using the 2″ x 1 3/8″ Oval Punch

1 x White Scallop Circle using the 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch

2 x Pink Ovals using the 1 3/4″ x 7/8″ Oval Punch

2 x Pink Circles using the 1″ Circle Punch

6 x Pink Circles using a 1/4″ Circle Punch

4 x White Circles using the 3/4″ Circle Punch

2 x Black Circles using the 1/2″ Circle Punch

1 x Pink Heart using the Heart-to-Heart Punch

1 x Scallop Circle using the Scallop Circles #2 Bigz Die

1 x Circle 2 1/2″ in diameter – I used my Circle Scissors Plus & Glass Mat

To assemble your Bunny:

Take two large white ovals and your two pink smaller ovals – adhere the pink ones to the white ones to form the ears – I like to have a wider white margin at the top of the ears and so overhang some pink oval at the bottom and then trim it off…


Next adhere your ears to the back of your large scallop circle to make the head…
Now to make the feet – take the remaining two large white ovals and all the pink circles…
And adhere in place…
To do this easily, I use Mini Glue Dots to adhere my small punch outs – as soon as I punch them out I attach them to a glue dot on the roll – the glue dots are the perfect size and by doing this I avoid losing these little pieces…
To make the body take your 2 1/2″ Circle and adhere it to the back of the head…
Fill your Cello Tube with the candies or treats of your choice and attach it to your bunny using two Mini Glue Dots at the bottom of the Scallop Circle…
And this is what your Bunny will look like – he is really coming together now…
You need to attach your feet very firmly so that they don’t pop off – to do this, turn each foot over and apply Sticky Strip…
Peel off the backing strip and push firmly onto the bottom of the Bunny’s body…
Assemble the eyes and adhere in place.  To make my whiskers I used Linen Thread that I teased apart – I attached a glue to and then pushed my whiskers into place – and finally I added the cute little pink heart nose on top…
You can leave your Bunny like this or you can add paws…here is mine without paws…

To add paws, take your 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle and cut it in half – adhere both paws to each side of your Bunny directly onto the Cello Tube.
And for one very cute finishing touch you can attach your cotton wool ball to the back of your Bunny for his tail…LOVE that tail!

Isn’t he just adorable?!

I know that you might not have all the Dies and Punches to be able to make your own and so…
