How to make a Woven Bunny Basket Card
Ok.. you will notice that the images below are “borrowed” from our Woven Egg & Chick Card!!! I really hope you don’t mind. I have been SOOOOO busy creating all these FREE Paper Weaving Printables for you… and wanted to get them all on the website as quickly as possible (to give you plenty of time to get crafty).. that I am running short of time… so hopefully you will look past the cute little chick in these images.. and in your minds’ eye only see a bunny in a basket!!
The main difference is that you don’t cut the bunny basket handle off!
We do really love how easy these Woven Bunny cards are to make and how lovely the paper weaving looks! Perfect Easter Egg patterns!
Begin by printing out your free Easter Printable onto light card stock – paper works too, but light card stock just gives it a neater finish!
Colour in your Bunny in whatever colour you like! We also coloured the background behind the bunny (yellow or blue in our case). If you are using the watercolour pencils like we have.. let the chick dry fully before moving on.
Once it is all dry, fold the paper along the edge where the two eggs meet. If you make the fold as neat as possible (with the tops and bottoms of the page aligning, you can cut out both halves at the same time!
Use the “full egg” to cut out your card.
Open the card and check that the Bunny Basket is cut neatly. If need be trim a little extra off..
Cut along the lines of your basket card.
Then cut 1cm strips of coloured paper. I am not great at cutting super neat strips… and I think the results still look lovely. But needles to say, the neater these strips the better. If you making these a KS1 classroom project you may want to use a paper cutter in advance!
Start on the top left side of the egg. Add a little glue to your strip and glue it under the first strip. Then weav in and out. Securing it at the other end with a little more glue (you can trim later).
On the second row glue on TOP of the strip and weave.
Continue until you come to the bottom of the egg basket. I find it helps to glue down each part of the last strip to secure and “neaten” the final egg.
We also have a “LARGE” Bunny in Woven Basket project for you – great for younger Preschoolers or Toddlers who want to have a go – same pattern, but bigger:
