Easter is right around the corner! Every year I try to think of fun Easter basket ideas to make for the kids. Usually I’ll add bunny bath bombs, chalk, and other small handmade goodies. This year I plan to add these Easter bunny treat bags to their baskets. My son loves SweeTARTS so we were excited to partner with Nestle to share an Easter craft featuring their new SweeTARTS Easter candy. Today I’m going to share how to make bunny treat bags filled with candy. They’re great for classroom parties or to fill your Easter basket with.I’ve always been a big fan of holiday shaped candy, especially when making holiday theme treat bags. The SweeTARTS Soft Bite Bunnies, Sour Bunny Gummies, Chicks, Ducks & Bunnies and Soft & Chewy Ropes are great for making Easter treats, filling eggs or crafting with. The SweeTARTS Soft Bites Bunnies come in a variety of classic flavors in a jelly gummy. They are also free of artificial flavors and colors, which is always a bonus in my book. In addition to filling the bunny treat bags with the SweeTARTS Soft Bites Bunnies, I used the Sour Bunny Gummies and Chicks, Ducks & Bunnies candy that I knew my kids would enjoy. They made a great pop of color against the purple bunny shaped bag.

How to make bunny treats bags
Step one: cut cardstock and vellum in the shape of a bunny. I used a cutting machine but you could hand cut the shape with a little drawing skills (which, sadly, I lack). In the meantime, start warming up your FUSE tool.Step two: glue the vellum on top of the cardstock – I used a basic glue stick, nothing fancy. Step three: Place the bunny inside a photo sleeve then begin fusing the sleeve close with your tool. I used this method to make bookmarks for the kids last summer. The heat will melt the top and bottom together as you work around the edge of the paper. Keep a couple inches open and fill with candy. Once your treat bags are filled, finish sealing the photo sleeve.Step four: trim off the excess photo sleeve by cutting along the sealed edges of your treat bag. Then give your bunny a little DIY snapchat inspired floral crown with stickers.
I can’t wait to see what the kids think about them! I’m going to attempt to make more for my son’s kindergarten class, maybe in various colors like pink, blue and purple.
