Bunny ears bag for Easter - with video tutorial

While browsing Pinterest the other day, I saw a cloth bag with bunny ears and immediately thought how cute Stampin' Up's chevron paper bags would look with ears! I went off to see what I could come up with and this was the result:


Isn't it cute?! A pack of these chevron bags are only £3.75 and they're gorgeous and can be dressed up in all sorts of different ways if you're not a fan of bunny ears! (But of course you are!)


Have you seen that chevron ribbon - it's faintworthy! (and yes Spellchecker, I do know that's not a real word!) I can't decide which is my favourite colour but this Blushing Bride has got to be in the running.


My bag was filled with all sorts of chocolate yumminess so I stamped the tag with an appropriate sentiment from the Oh Goodie stamp set!


I made a little card to coordinate with the treat bag...


... with a hint of what's in the bag on the front!


What a fun Easter project! And the beauty of it is that it takes hardly any time at all, so it would be easy to make lots of them...


... which means there'll be lots of happy bunnies all round!

I've made a video tutorial to show you how to make the bunny ears bag, the tag AND the card:



Enjoy the comedy bit in the middle where I wrestle with the bunny!

My husband likes to regale the family with what he terms 'fun facts' and recently came out with the story that Mel Blanc, the actor that voiced Bugs Bunny, didn't like carrots. My youngest son seemed deeply affected by this. "How do you know?" he asked. " Oh everyone knows that!" said my husband. "Really?" said my son. "Why am I always the last to know?"

Have a great weekend and I'll see you very soon.

Hugs,
