Hey everybody! This is Sam from the Pretty Life Girls back with another fun Silhouette CAMEO tutorial. Today, I’m sharing a DIY Easter gift idea - paper treat boxes with little adhesive vinyl bunnies! They are so simple to make, and the final product is adorable. Keep scrolling to see how I made them!
DIY Easter Gift Idea: How to Make Paper Treat Boxes Embellished with Adhesive Vinyl Bunnies
Estimated Time: 30 minutes (Beginner)
Here are the supplies you’ll need:
- Silhouette CAMEO 3
- Cutting mat
- Weeding hook
- Adhesive vinyl (I used coral and mint)
- Bunny cut file
- Glue gun
- White pom poms
Step 1: Open the bunny cut file in Silhouette Studio. You only need the back of the bunny for this project, so delete the front of the bunny, and arrange as many backs as you need on the canvas. Load your adhesive vinyl and cut.
Step 2: After your machine has finished cutting, remove the vinyl, and weed the excess. Use the hook to remove any small pieces.
Step 3: Next, open the cut file for the basket. I used this one from the Silhouette Store. Make any sizing adjustments, load your cardstock on a cutting mat, and cut. Be sure to adjust your blade setting to cardstock.
Step 4: Remove the cut cardstock pieces from the cutting mat. Now it’s time to assemble!
Step 5: Fold the basket along the scored lines.
Step 6: Glue the sides together to make a box.
Step 7: Attach the handle with glue or a decorative brad.
Step 8: Place the adhesive vinyl bunny on the basket.
Step 9: Attach the pom pom for a tail.
Now the baskets are ready to be filled! So cute for any Easter gathering. Check out our DIY Easter Egg Hunt Project: Adhesive Vinyl on Hard Boiled Eggs post for egg decorating inspiration.
