Paper Roll Rabbits

Spring time sure does put me in the mood for crafting.

With all of the paper roll ideas pouring onto Pinterest these days, I was inspired to come up with a rabbit pattern for spring.

We cut them out, painted them, and then drew on bunny faces.

But then I saw this beautiful paper~ ‘Sweet Nectar’ from KC Company.  Some of you know how it is…you get some pretty new paper and you’ve just got to make something with it right away!

 

I covered a paper roll with paper…

Traced the same pattern onto the covered roll..

And cut it out…

Be careful to leave a small part connected in the back so the rabbit can stand…

Here’s a better look at the pattern if you’d like to try some of these..

You could also add pom-pom noses and tails, or pretty bows…

What could you do with these cute rabbits?  My daughter said they should sit around and look cute…

They fit snuggly onto standard sized eggs as little egg toppers…

What about napkin rings?

Can you think of any other ideas for these little rabbits? I’d love to hear them!

    1. @Stephanie –Yes! I love your idea..maybe put some candy in cellophane, tie it up, and push it down into the holder…that would be so cute, thanks for stopping by!

  1. Another adorable project! My granddaughters are spending the night tonight. The twins just turned 7 so if there is time we may try this! Thanks so much for sharing the pattern. PS – I’m loving the music you have playing today. I think I’ll leave your blog up for awhile and enjoy the music. I hope Knox is doing better this week.

  2. @Connie –Hope you have a wonderful time with your sweet granddaughters, I bet twin girls make everything so much fun! Thanks about the music, it’s from a CD I have called ‘Essential Baroque’ and it’s titled ‘Allegro I Brandenburg Concerto in D’. Knox is doing a lot better today, thanks so much for thinking of him. :)

  3. I think I once saw cellophane candy bags that looked like carrots. Triangle shaped! I was thinking eggs too then see you thought of it…… the napkin holders are ADORABLE!!! WANT! Thank you for sharing. (I might have to make some for my daughters students, she can make the gift bag with little erasers candy and pencils)
