Easter ‘origami bunny’ treat box

Hello! Last year I made some ‘origami bunny’ chocolate bar wrappers and I thought the bunny would look nice on these treat boxes. The design is really minimal and suitable for kids and grown-ups.

The sun has finally started shining in the UK after a long, wet winter. I’m already in the mood for summer and have been working on some geometric icosahedron ice creams! Can’t wait to show you them in a week or so. Until then, happy crafting!

YOU WILL NEED

// Pastel paper or thin card
// Glue stick or double sided tape
// Scissors
// Something to score your paper with. I use a compass point and metal ruler.
// Treats to fill your box with

STEP-BY-STEP
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

1. Print out the template. Set your printing preferences to ‘photo’ and ‘grayscale’.

2. Score and fold along all the lines (see the ‘cutting/scoring plan’ below for more details). Then trim around the solid edge. (TIP: it’s better to score first, then trim otherwise you will cut away all the scoring guides).

3. Fold into box shape and secure tabs with a gluestick or sticky tape.

4. Carefully press the sides of the carton in to create the tetra-pak style top. I trimmed the top edge of the carton with zig-zag scissors.

5. Fill your boxes with treats.

6. Tape the top closed. You can use washi tape, paper-clips, split pins, little pegs or anything else that comes to hand.

    Hello,Kate.
    I’m from Taiwan.
    I’sorry that if my entence have some wrong.

    Your webspace & creations are so cute & innovative.
    And I have be touched when I see the treats-cutting-scoring that you share.
    So I wanna share the treat-box that Adaptation from you.

    It’s use the “ghost-treat-boxes” pdf ,then draw by mspaint.exe.
    To plan the Totoro treat-box (idea from movie:”My Neighbor Totoro”)

    But I know there is the warning word on pdf.
    So I’m not sure the thing I do -to change your design- that would be offend or affront to you or not
    If I do.I give my Apologize.(very sorry)
    If I don’t.I hope you like that
    Thanks for you share.

    Kate你好
    我是台灣人
    如果我文句中有錯的話還請多包涵

    你的網站中那些可愛的作品真的好漂亮又有創意
    這次看到你分享自由創作的treat-boxes真的好心動
    所以想和你分享我改編的treat-box

    這是用之前ghost-treat-boxes的檔案
    再加上 mspaint.exe編輯
    所做成的龍貓treat-box (My Neighbor Totoro.)

    但是因為我有看到你在檔案中所寫的版權提示字
    所以我不知道我改掉你的作品是不是會冒犯到你
    有的話我跟你說聲抱歉〈(_ _)〉
    沒有的話希望你還喜歡
    謝謝你的分享
