Bunny Money Hugs is a fun way to give a gift of cash. This bunny holds tight to the money!

The bunny is cute and easy to make, and requires few supplies, especially if you decide to draw the features on.

How to Make Bunny Money Hugs.

1. Make a paper pattern. Cut it out.

Trace it on to cereal box cardboard and cut it out.

2. Use the cardboard pattern to draw the bunny body, ears and feet on the white craft foam.

Cut them out.

You get a nicer edge if you try to hold the scissors straight up and down while you cut the craft foam.

3. Draw the features and arms on the bunny body.

The bottom of the arms should be at about the center of the body.

4. Fold the money to be about 1 1/8 inches wide.

Fold the bill so it frames one side of the person’s face.

Then fold it so it frames the other side of the face.

Fold the rest of the bill to the back, and then fold it behind the part of the money with the face – so only the face shows.

Crease sharply.

5. Using a craft knife or scissors, carefully cut the slits along the top and bottom of the bunny’s arms.

Make the slits wide enough to slip the folded money through them, but not too close to the edges.

6. Color the ears and feet as shown.

Draw tiny lines for the bunny’s toes.

7. Attach the ears to the back of the bunny’s head.

Attach the feet to the front of the bunny’s body, angling the toes to the sides.

8. Slip the folded money into the bunny’s arms and he’s ready to go.

I made this Bunny Money Hugs from the side of a milk jug.

A crisp new dollar bill folds better and looks nicer than an older one.

Any denomination of paper money can be used.

I used a craft knife to cut the slits as it cut cleaner.

Wiggly eyes can be used, but I prefer to draw them on so they can’t be knocked off.
