Envelope Bunnies from Martha Stewart

A fun way to say "Happy Easter" is with paper-envelope rabbits - bearing treats, of course! This too-cute tutorial is from Martha Stewart


1. Seal the flap of an envelope, and draw bunny ears on the sealed side, as shown below. You can draw your own or use our bunny ear template
2. Cut along the line through both layers of the envelope
3. Flip the envelope over; what was the side of the envelope becomes the bottom of your treat holder. 
4. Cut pink construction paper to make eyes and insides of ears, and glue them on the front of the envelope. Use colored pencil for mouth; glue on a pom-pom nose. Fill with yummy Easter sweets.
