Bunny Bagalope




By Noreen Doll.

Make a fun bunny bagalope with an envelope.

It’s easy and quick to do and could be used as a gift bag, for favors, or even a small Easter basket.

You can make different sizes depending on the size of the envelope you use.

Materials.

Envelope – Mine is 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches

Scissors

Ruler

Pencil

Eyes

Foam or Paper Scrap for Nose

Double Sided Tape or Glue

How to Make a Bunny Bagalope.

1. Seal the envelope completely. Use glue or double sided tape to seal the entire edge.

2. Turn the envelope so the sides are at top and bottom, and the sealed flaps are at the back.

3. Score 3/4 of an inch in from the edge on 3 sides: the sides and bottom of the envelope.

Fold forward on each score line and crease sharply.

Fold backwards on each score line and crease sharply.

4. At the bottom corners score a diagonal line as shown.

Crease this score sharply both forwards and backwards.

5. Measure up 5 1/4 inches from the bottom and draw a light line across at this point.

Draw a pair of ears upward from this line.

6. Cut out around the ears, leaving them attached to the envelope at the base of the ears.

If you are making several bunny bagalopes of the same size, save the cut-out piece from the top and use it as your template for the rest of the bags.  Quick and easy!

7. Cut off the back set of ears.

8. Make a smaller set of ears in pink to put inside the larger ears.

Attach with glue or double sided tape.

9. Attach the eyes and nose.

Draw the mouth.

10. Open the folds of the bagalope out.

At the bottom, glue or tape the 2 triangles to the bottom of the bag.

And don’t forget to add a cotton ball for the tail.

Add Easter grass with candy or a gift to the bunny bagalope

Add Easter grass with candy or a gift to the bunny bagalope.

Tips.

For the eyes you could use a punched black circle, or you could just draw the whole face on.

If kids are making the bagalopes, it would be cuter to have them draw their own faces.

You could also color inside the ears rather than make a separate piece.

If you don’t have access to envelopes, you could use this idea on brown or white lunch sacks.
