From cereal box to Easter bunny bag

Submitted by on April 14, 2011 – 1:32 amOne Comment

It’s been a while since I transformed a cereal box into something useful and pretty to look at. Yesterday morning while I was tidying up after breakfast I suddenly got an idea for an Easter craft with an empty box of cereals.

I like to keep the large boxes for storing little toys, pens, old drawings and anything I feel the urge to keep so I often turn these boxes into storage files but this time I made a different type of storage: an Easter bunny bag. This cute bag can be used to collect all those little chocolate eggs on Easter Sunday and after that it will conveniently fit on any kid’s bedroom to store toys or it can be used for pretend play.

To make this bag I used a large cereal box, wrapping paper, crease paper, scissors, black marker, glue, glitter glue, scrap felt and cotton wool.

1. Strengthen the bottom of the box with tape and fold the top flaps inwards to obtain a thicker top edge.

2. Trace the handles with a black marker and cut the wholes with a scalpel (an adult must complete this part as scalpels are very sharp and difficult to handle)

3.  Cut the wrapping paper for every side of the box and attach it with glue

4. Finish the handles and the edges with crease paper trimmings to hide where the paper joins together

5. Cut two identical rabbit shapes out of paper of a different colour from the background and attach one on the front and one on the back of the bag

6. Decorate the rabbits as if they were front and back: attach a piece of cotton wool on the back and eyes on the front; use the glitter glue to mark the facial features and the buttons on the rabbit’s body. Make a tiny bow tie with a piece of felt and attach it with glue.
