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.

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.
