Firstly, apologies that Tutorial Tuesday slipped into Wednesday…sorting out a few new things this week has made my schedule slide!

So here we are with Easter only a month away and when I realised that, I figured I should start thinking about treats that the girls can give to their friends & classmates…

I played with paper for a while and came up with a cute Bunny holding a tube of Jelly Beans…isn’t he adorable?  That Tube is the perfect size to hold Jelly Beans or M&Ms.  Wouldn’t he also be great for baby shower favors?

Please read on for details on how to make him plus a link to my free printable tutorial and as always, this week’s blog candy…

Now with this Bunny I have a bit of a dilemma – the one above has no paws…but I’m not sure if I prefer him or the Bunny below with those cute paws holding onto the Tube…what do you think?

Tough, eh?  How did I make him?  By using punched and die cut shapes – I made his head using my Big Shot and the Scallop Circle #2 Die, his paws using the 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle Die and everything else using a selection of Oval and Circle Punches…

I have a full list of the Dies & Punches along with how many shapes of each are needed to make him on my printable tutorial.

What colors did I use? I used Whisper White, Pink Pirouette and Basic Black to make him.  Like that nose?  Made using the Heart to Heart Punch and some strands of Linen Thread.

Is there anything on the back of my Bunny? Oh yes…one very cute finishing touch…check out this tail…love it!

The Tube? It’s a cello tube filled with Jelly Beans and is sized perfectly to hold these and M&Ms – there is a peel off sealing strip on one end that holds the goodies firmly inside and is almost invisible to see when sealed.

You can use multicolored candies or keep them all one color for different looks – here are some filled tubes to give you an idea of the effects you can create…

Want some of these Tubes? I have them…read on for details!

    I like the one without the paws better but both are cute! :-)

  • March 23, 2011 at 6:36 pm

    Love both the bunnies but I think the one without paws is my favorite. Thanks for all the cute ideas and free tutorials.

  • March 23, 2011 at 6:36 pm

    I like the one without the paws but they are both cute. Thanks for the cute idea!

  • March 23, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    Cute, cute idea for my grand-kiddos! Thanks for sharing. I much prefer the bunny with paws and was surprised to read that those who replied before me did not. Oh, well…I am often my own majority!!!

  • March 23, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    They are both adorable, but I like the one without the paws best.

  • March 23, 2011 at 7:37 pm

    Sweet bunnies: nice idea! I like them both but I think I like the one with paws better. They both say spring and Easter.

  • March 23, 2011 at 7:47 pm

    Tough call but I think maybe the bunny with the paws. But both are really cute!

  • March 23, 2011 at 7:49 pm

    This is adorable!! The bunny DEFINITELY needs his feet. How else will he hold onto the candy? Blessings, Mary

  • March 23, 2011 at 7:50 pm

    Well, I think the paws have it! But, you could make another with jut one paw on the candy and one paw waving or something? Either way, the tail is just the cutest! Thanks for sharing such a cutie!

  • March 23, 2011 at 8:05 pm

    I love the one with paws.

  • March 23, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    So cute..i like the one without the paws.

  • March 23, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    Great tutorial! I like the bunny with the front feet. I think it might look good if the front feet were a little closer to it’s body…they can be behind his back feet with just a little of his front feet peeking out from the sides of his back feet. Hopefully that makes sense:)

  • March 23, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    With paws – i think it looks more balanced and real that way. Gorgeous tutorial thanks so much for sharing so generously of your time & talent

  • March 23, 2011 at 9:33 pm

    So cute! I like the one without paws best.

  • March 23, 2011 at 9:38 pm

    I like the one with the paws best. Maybe try moving them a little closer to the center would give it a different look, too. They are both adorable!

  • March 23, 2011 at 10:01 pm

    They are both adorable, but my preference is with paws. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us.

  • March 23, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    TOO STINKIN CUTE AMIGA! I like the one without the paws…no the one with paws…no really the one without the paws…UGH! I like them both…Thank you for a chance win the Bunny Kit and SOME YUMMY Jelly Beans

    Too cute. I like the one without the paws the best though. I want to get some of your tubes too, but will email you about it or pm.

  • March 23, 2011 at 11:54 pm

    I like the bunny with paws best. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us.

  • March 23, 2011 at 11:57 pm

    I’ll raise my paw–ah, hand–for the one with paws. So darling, thank you!

  • March 24, 2011 at 4:49 am

    Just adorable!!! To paws or not to paws, hmmm…
    Not to paws is my vote. The paws take away from the face, make it too busy…

  • March 24, 2011 at 6:11 am

    Both are too cute to decide! Just adorable :)

  • March 24, 2011 at 7:17 am

    I like the one without paws the best! :) They are both adorable though!!! Great idea and thanks for sharing with us, I am sure I will be making them for my kiddos too! TOO CUTE!!!

  • March 24, 2011 at 7:29 am

    Cute, cute, cute idea! I love having another presentation for the cello tube bags. I’m all in favor of the bunny with the paws. Thanks for a great idea and for sharing the tutorial. jmniffer

  • March 24, 2011 at 7:55 am

    Love them both! But I think I like the one without the paws. Maybe if the paws were closer together it would look better. Thanks for sharing!

  • March 24, 2011 at 8:22 am

    The one without is cute. actually both are adorable. I truly enjoy your blog. Great ideas.
    Keep up the great work. Thank you.

  • March 24, 2011 at 8:26 am

    So incredibly cute! Looks “just” like the bunnies in my back yard. I like the one without the paws.

    Love your web-site!

  • March 24, 2011 at 8:38 am

    I would have to vote WITH THE PAWS !

  • March 24, 2011 at 8:43 am

    What I cute bunny! I really like the bunny without the paws. It seems as though the paws are too large and take away from the effect of the bunny “holding” the treat tube. I wonder what it would would like with the paws being made from the scallop oval punch or one of the smaller oval punches, as those are narrower and bunny feet and paws are naturally more narrow. Thanks for sharing and offering the blog candy. I’d love some of those tubes, Sarah :)

  • March 24, 2011 at 9:16 am

    My vote would be for the “with paws” version…although they are both completely adorable! Thanks for the inspiration.

  • March 24, 2011 at 9:40 am

    I love this bunny and the cello tubes are a great idea, will have to put in an order. I wonder if the paws are on the bottom of the tube (holding up the tube or outstretched thus giving the candy to someone)and in a bit closer to his body. Of course, I vote for having paws showing! Tks for sharing.

  • March 24, 2011 at 9:44 am

    First of all these are sooo cute, they would be perfect to give each of my sons classmates for easter! I prefer the one without the paws, cute and simple. Second, i would like some of the plastic tubes, do you except paypal and what is the s/h cost or is that included in the $5 for 50 price quote?

  • March 24, 2011 at 11:23 am

    I prefer the bunny without the paws. Such a cute little fella! Thanks for sharing.

  • March 24, 2011 at 2:19 pm

    oh it has to have paws!! Too cute!!

  • March 24, 2011 at 9:29 pm

    This is such a cute idea. I’m sure my grandkids would love them. I think the bunny with the paws is my favorite.

  • March 24, 2011 at 9:50 pm

    OMG, your Peter Cottontails are adorable. Think I prefer the one without the paws though because the jelly beans in the cello bag are so colorful. What a cool idea to make for all the little nieces, nephews & friends’ kids for Easter. Wouldn’t they be adorable added to your table for decorations? I can see I need to place an order for the cello bags in the next day or two. Thanks for the chance to win a kit ~ your tutorials are so helpful.

  • March 26, 2011 at 6:00 pm

    I love your Bunny holding the jellybeans so much that I just ordered the tubes. I think I’ll make his paws smaller and scallops UP so it looks like he is holding them in his paws. Or maybe I’ll make it your way…depends how mine look. Thanks so much for sharing your tutorials…boy, you’re going to keep me busy.

  • March 27, 2011 at 6:56 am

    I love the one with the paws looks more like he is holding the candies not them jus sitting in his lap. Either way is great thought . Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us every week.

  • April 25, 2011 at 5:54 am

    LOVE your bunny & wish that I would have come across your blog BEFORE Easter.. I would have loved to make these for our Easter table.. next year for sure! Can’t wait to get the tubes I ordered from you to use for some wedding shower favors! :)
