How To Craft The Cutest Easter Egg Bunny Gift Box

This is such a happy kit! Everything from the colours of the card to the dies and stamps just makes you want to smile.

You will be able to make up an egg shape which you can then adapt to create a bunny and/or chick.

I’m absolutely sure that you’ll also let your imagination take over and create all sorts of other animals or creatures. That’s the beauty of a kit like this! The photos on the leaflet are just the starting point.

In this step by step, I’ll be showing you how to make the basic egg shape and then use the cute little dies to turn it into a bunny. I have used the ears provided (what a strange phrase!) but I think you could also use the arms/legs as ears to create a lop-eared bunny. Enjoy.

Step 1

Using the Ivory card, die cut 4 Hexagonal Base pieces.

Step 2

Cut List For Our Easter Egg:

Die cut Easter Egg Top x 6

Easter Egg Base x 6

Large Hexagon x 1

Medium Hexagon x 1

Closure Tab x 2 (optional) I used magnets instead

Easter Egg Hinge x 1

Step 3

Burnish the top and bottom score fold lines on the Easter Egg Top die cuts crisply. This is important to make the finished egg come together neatly in the centre. Gently shape these using a marker or something round (to prevent creases).

Step 4

Adhere the top tabs of these pieces to the Medium Hexagon.

Step 5

The glue all the semi circle tabs on the sides to each adjoining die cut. The little square tabs do not need to be glued in place. 

Step 6

Glue a Hexagonal Base under the glue tabs on the rim.

Step 7

Repeat this process using the Easter Egg base dies and the Large Hexagon. 

Step 8

Glue the hinge in place.

Step 9

If you’re using the Closure tabs, you can glue them in place now. Adhere the 2 remaining Hexagon Bases on top to cover all the glue tabs.

Step 10

If you’re using small magnet to close the egg, you can adhere one under each side of the rim as shown. Die cut another Medium and Large Hexagon and glue in place to cover the glue tabs.

Step 11

Die cut 2 sets of bunny ears and a pair of ear “inners”. Remove the tabs from one set of ears and glue these to the back of the full set. Glue the inners in place. Fold the glue tab back and glue the ears to the head. You can cover the glue tab with another matching hexagon.

Step 12

Die cut the pieces shown to create the face, arms, legs, tail etc. I have cut double amounts of arms and legs to glue together to strengthen these parts.

Step 13

Glue in place as shown. 

Step 14

You can use the little tail piece (in pink) to add pads onto the feet. Cover the join with an extra die cut.

Step 15

Glue the little carrot onto the “hand”.

Step 16

If you wish to reinforce or strengthen the bunny body, go ahead and add plain die cuts inside the body. 

These are some other things you can also do with the contents of the kit. You can see how I made them in my video
