Pinterest Mom Wannabe 1 - Bunny treat bags


I saw some little bags similar to this on Pinterest, and thought they would make a nice little treat to hand out to the Preschool teachers at the Easter garden party.  

Oh Happy Day has a template to cut out the bags, but since my bags were a completely different shape to the print out, I just cut on the basis of a third in, and a half down. I didn't worry about punching the holes as in the template. Perhaps my paper was too thick? A scrunch and tie was perfectly fine for my bags.

Also, my bags had a pleat, so the ears needed to be turned out before gathering together (I realised this after creating a double set of ears bunny first). I used cupcake wrappers to add the ear detail, and found it easier to glue on after tying the ribbon around to form the ears - easier to slide the detail into place. On the back I glued a little cotton tail (essential feature, no?). Easy peasey big long ears-ey and off to the teachers tomorrow afternoon.
