| | | | |

Time for our adorable floppy eared bunny card! Kids willl love making this super duper easy Pop Up Easter Egg & Bunny Card! All you will need is some paper and cardstock (pretty paper is a bonus! But you can design your own Easter Eggs too!). We love making pop up cards all year around, but Easter is a lovely time to make some personalised Easter cards too!

Pop Up Easter Card Craft

Making a pop-up card is always fun. This work sheet shows you how to make a super simple pop-up mechanism – using the “paper bauble” technique. Paper baubles are easy and fun for children to make and can be used for this pop up card. This card focusses on creating an egg shaped 3d bauble and combines it with some cute Easter bunny outlines.

This makes for a fun seasonal activity to help fill any lesson plan gaps. It also allows students to take home some lovely Easter cards to send to family and friends. Handmade Easter cards definitely are always the best! Check out all our Easter Card Ideas here.

How to make a Pop Up Easter Egg & Bunny Card

Cut your basic Easter Egg & Bunny Shapes

basic shapes are neeed to make a pop easter egg card
The DIY pop up cards are made using relatively simple and basic paper shapes!

Draw your own or use the templates provide to create your basic shapes for this card. We printed on white paper and use the egg shape to then cut out 4 colored patterned paper eggs!

You will need:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 round head
  • 2 ears
  • 2 round paws
  • 2 oblong feet

Make the 3d Egg Shape

fold the eggs in half
Fold the paper eggs in half

Fold your four egg shapes carefully in half. Make sure you find the centre, so they are neatly folded.

Add glue to one side of one of the fold egg shapes.

stack the paper eggs
Stack the paper eggs

Place the second egg shape on top of the first egg where the glue is.

Add glue to this second egg and stack the third shape and repeat with the third and fourth egg.

Easter Egg Stack

You should now have a stack of eggs that are folded in half.

When you open the stack you have you 3d egg fan shape.

Combine the Easter Egg shape with the Paper Easter Bunny

combining the shapes
It helps to arrange the shapes on the card first and then glue on piece by piece

Arrange all the paper bunny shapes behind the egg. And glue in place.

  • The ears behind the head. The head behind the egg.
  • The feet behind the egg (the paws will come late)

Adding the Easter Egg and Bunny to the pop up card

glue in place
Glue one half or the Bunny & Egg into the card

Fold the bunny and egg in half and add glue to one side.

Align the centre fold of the bunny with the fold of your card and glue in place.

repeat the glue

Add glue to the exposed side.

secure the glue
Securing the glue! Note how the ears stick out! That is fine… see the next step

Close the card and it will hold glue the side perfectly in place.

flop the bunny ear down

Open up the card and fold down the bunny ear to make your “floppy ear” (and for it to fit inside the card too!). Repeat for the other ear!

add the bunny paws

Glue your paws in place. They go “on top” of the egg, so that it looks like the bunny is holding the egg.

Add finishing touches to your pop up Easter Egg and Bunny!

draw the bunny features

Draw your bunny’s face – eyes, nose, whiskers if you wish.

Add details to the paws and feed.

your easy Pop Up card

Finished! Now wasn’t that an Easy Pop Up Easter Card? I just love the 3d Easter Egg shape combined with the super duper cute and easy to make Paper Easter Bunny! And oh my, those floppy ears! Too cute.

Now it is time to write your Happy Easter greetings and pop up card into an envelope to send to a loved one! Handwritten and personalized messages are always the best!

Extension ideas:

  • You can spend a little more time decorating the inside of the card first – e.g. you could cut some paper Easter grass and glue to the bottom of the card, before securing the egg and Easter bunny in place.
  • These cute 3d little bunny and eggs could also be made as an Easter decoration. Make two and stick them together back to back. Wouldn’t that be adorable?
  • Or make a “large” bunny from construction paper as an art project, instead of putting it in the inside of a card.
