This Easter bunny envelope is such a fun way to say happy Easter to someone special. It is very easy to make with just a few supplies you probably already have on hand.
Supplies needed: 2 pieces of white A4 paper, scissors, black marker, pink crayon, glue stick, green tissue paper
1.Cover your work area with an old tablecloth.
2.Fold one of the pieces of white paper in half.
3.Unfold the paper, apply glue to both of the side edges, refold and press the edges to make sure the glue sticks. Do not put glue on the top edge. You should end up with a simple envelope.
4.Fold the second piece of paper in half and cut out a large bunny ear shape. You should end up with 2 bunny ears that are exactly the same.
5.Apply glue to the bottom edge of one ear and press it inside the top of the envelope. Repeat with the other ear.
6.Add detail to the ears with pink crayon.
7.Use the black marker to draw the face. Give your bunny some character by giving him long whiskers and big teeth. Colour the nose in with the pink crayon.
8.Make grass by cutting long, narrow strips of tissue paper and stuff it inside the envelope. Let a few pieces peek out of the top.
9.Voila! Your Easter bunny is done! Just fill it with sweeties and give it to someone special.
