Crepe Paper Surprise Bunny

This is far from a hare-brained scheme for party favors: As kids unravel the tightly wound crepe paper strips, they reveal several little trinkets and presents.

  • Fold of crepe paper

  • Trinkets

  • Hot-glue gun

  • Tissue or construction paper

  • Clear-drying glue

  • Cupcake paper


  1. Print bunny template. Using template, cut 2 bunny ears from fold. Cut the rest of the sheet crosswise into 3/4-inch strips.

  2. Wrap 1 strip around a trinket, creating a ball. (Hot-glue ends of paper together as needed.) Add a trinket every few layers. Continue until head is the size of a tennis ball.

  3. Cinch paper at the bottom, and glue ears to ball with hot-glue gun. Cut lashes and nose from tissue paper, and glue in place with clear glue.

  4. Snip away center of cupcake liner so head nestles in it. Cut fluted part to create collar.
