Today I'm sharing a free printable Easter treat box template with you. These cute bunny boxes can be filled with party favors, small gifts, chocolate eggs, jelly beans, or any kind of Easter gift you like. Fill them with Easter gifts for teachers or friends, or add one to each Easter place setting on your Easter table.
The kids will love getting involved in making this easy Easter craft, and it's such a fun way for them to gift a little treat to friends and family too.
All you need to make these free Easter treat boxes are basic crafting supplies, which you probably already have around the house.
I usually have so many ideas for Easter crafts that I don't get a chance to get them all on the blog before Easter. That's why, this year, I'm starting early!

Bunny box Instructions
There are two ways to make these printable Easter bunny treat boxes. The easiest way is to print the template directly onto colored cardstock. Alternatively, you could make a template with thick cardstock and use that to make the bunny treat boxes.
Whether or not you want to create a template for your Easter bunny treat box first is up to you. I like to keep templates just in case I lose the PDF file or accidentally delete it.
Either way, once you have your Easter treat box template printed, this is what you do next:
Cut the connector slits and holes for the bunny rabbit ears with the craft knife.
Instead of cutting out holes for the bunny ears, you could cover them with pink cardstock. I did it both ways.
★Tip★ Don't forget to put a cutting or craft mat underneath your Easter bunny template to avoid cutting into your work surface.
Make a bunny face
Trace over the bunny face on the template with a black marker. To make your own bunny face, cut a new piece of card and use a glue stick or craft glue to stick it over the bunny face.
How to assemble a printable Easter treat box
Although you can't see them on my template, I've added some dotted lines to the printable Easter treat box template, representing the score lines.
Step one: If you have one, use a scoring tool to score the fold lines so that they are easier to fold.
My wooden ruler has a rounded edge with a metal insert that acts as a paper folder. You could use a bone folder for this part if you have one.
Step two: Fold up each side of the box and press along the fold with a paper folding tool to make the edges sharp and crisp.
Step three: Gather together the front and back sides of the box, pushing down slightly so that the paper bows outwards.
Step four: Fold one of the sides of the box over the top and guide the bunny ears through the designated cut-out.
Step five: Place a small amount of Easter grass or straw inside the bunny box with chocolate Easter eggs, treats, or gifts.
Step six: Lastly, fold the second side (top flap) over the top of the bunny ears.
Make a bunny pom pom tail
I created a bunny rabbit tail for some of my Easter bunny treat boxes.
To make the bobtail, I cut a piece of pom pom ribbon leftover from making peat pot Easter baskets and glued that to the back of the box.
Alternatively, cotton balls could be used to make bunny rabbit tails.
How to decorate a bunny treat box
These Easter bunny treat boxes are adorable as they are but with a few simple crafting supplies, you can dress them up even more.
Make a bow around the bunny ears with Baker's Twine or ribbon.
Tuck a few dried flowers or dried grasses and craft feathers into the connector slots.
Whether you're looking for an easy Easter craft to make with the kids or a cute treat box for your Easter egg hunt or Easter place settings, this free printable Easter treat box template is everything you need to get started.
