How to Make an Easter Candy Holder Bag
Begin by using a ruler to measure and mark off your paper so it is a square.
Now, you will cut the excess paper off, and be left with a square.
Use your ruler and paper cutter, to cut 4 sections on one side of the paper that will be used to fold together for a bottom on the paper. See the video if unsure on how to do this step.
Now, you will fold your paper on the crease where each "flap" is, and fold over onto itself creating a rectangular "box". You will begin folding the bottom pieces over themselves to criss cross and secure the bottom of the box.
Glue the sides together, and then add a drop of glue to the bottom flaps to hold in place if wanted.
Now, you will draw 2 bunny feet onto the white paper, then pink accents on the feet on the pink paper.
Assemble your bunny feet.
Glue the feet to the bottom front of the bag about 1-1 ½" above the bottom.
Next, cut out 2 ear shapes from white paper, and 2 smaller pieces from the pink paper to go inside the white ears.
Attach the pink to the white to create the ears.
Glue the ears in place on the back top of the bag.
Now, you will use the green paper to cut a strip the width of the bottom of the bag, and cut strips of fringe to resemble grass.
Glue the grass piece onto the bottom of the bag below the feet.
Draw a face onto the bag.
Now fill with goodies for giving to our kids or their friends.
