Bunny Carton

by Twila Davis

Make a bunny-shaped carton for sweet treats.


  • Cardstock (8" x 10 1/2" base, Stampin' Up!® Whisper White used here), scrap of black (1 1/4" x 5", SU Basic Black used here) and scrap of pink (SU Petal Pink used here)
  • Paper Trimmer with scoring blade
  • Punches or dies - 3/8" circle, 1" circle, small heart, oval, 3/4" circle (optional)
  • Pink ink (SU Petal Pink used here)
  • Scissors
  • Bone folder
  • Crop-a-dile
  • Adhesives (Dimensionals and Tombow Mono Liquid Glue used here)
  • Other supplies as needed to complete the project (Stampin' Chalk Marker, Sponge Dauber, Wide Ribbon, Easter Grass & Candy)


  1. Step 1

    Score the piece of white cardstock along the long side at 2 1/2", 5", 7 1/2", and 10".

    Turn the cardstock a quarter turn to the right and score at 2 1/2", 4 5/8" and 5".

  2. Step 2

    Using the bone folder, crease all folds. Cut away the spaces marked in the picture. Cut the three slits at the bottom as shown.

  3. Step 3

    Fold the cardstock in half as shown. Use scissors to cut an ear shape from the top to the fold line.

  4. Step 4

    Flip the cardstock over and refold in half again. Cut out another ear shape stopping at the fold line.

  5. Step 5

    Cut off the remainder of the cardstock from the top as shown below.

  6. Step 6

    Attach the sides of box together by adding glue to the side flap and attaching to the other side.

  7. Step 7

    To form the bottom of box, add glue to one of the bottom side flaps and fold the other on top. Then fold the back flap down and add glue and fold the front flap back over it.

  8. Step 8

    Using your fingers, pinch the top in from both sides to form a box that resembles a milk carton.

  9. Step 9

    From each side using the Crop-a-dile and the smaller hole, punch in 7/8" in the middle of the score line at the top, while folded in.

  10. Step 10

    Punch two 3/8" circles from black cardstock. Add a few highlight to them using a chalk marker.
    Cut six narrow strips of black cardstock for whiskers.
    Punch a 3/8" circle, a heart, and two ovals from pink cardstock. Use pink ink and a sponge dauber to sponge around all of the pink pieces.
    Score the ovals in the middle to fit inside the ears.
    Punch two 1" white circles and sponge around them using pink ink.

  11. Step 11

    Glue the pink ovals inside the ears.

  12. Step 12

    Attach the cheeks to the front of box as shown with Dimensionals. Using glue attach the rest of pieces. Curl up the ends of the whiskers before attaching them. Trim the whiskers as needed.

  13. Step 13 (Optional)

    Punch a 3/4" white circle and sponge with pink. Attach it to the bottom on the back side with a dimensional for the tail.

  14. Step 14

    Add some Easter grass and candy to the inside of box. Cut a 10" piece of wide ribbon; thread it through the holes in the box and tie in a bow to the front to complete the project.

Thanks for the wonderful video on creating these adorable boxes. Wish there were time to make one for each student in my class. I will create for my own kids, though!

I've been tweaking the Bunny Carton a bit and found that the bigger size holds more candy. So your measurements for the taller box would be Cut cardstock at 8 1/2" x 10 1/2". Still score on the long side at 2 1/2", 5", 7 1/2" & 10" but on the short side score at 2 1/2",5" & 5 3/8". I am amazed at just what adding 1/2" does to the height of the box.

It's sooo cute and that bow in front is everything to amp up the cuteness! TFS
