Bunny Candy Holder (updated file for Cricut Design Space)

Easter is just around the corner - so early this year!  I have a simple file to share in case you are looking for some cute table decorations/favors for tiny gifts or candy.

I originally designed these bunny candy holders back in 2009 using the old Cricut Design Studio program.  You can see the original post and directions HERE.

In 2014, I updated the project and shared files for new Cricut Craftroom and Design Space versions.  You can find that post HERE.

I have created a new file for use with Cricut Design Space and the Cricut Explore machines that will do the scoring and also make the small extra cuts that are needed to assemble the bunnies.

All you will need to do is fold on the scored lines and then add strong adhesive (I use ScorTape) to make the box shape.

Add the noses and decorate as you please.  You can draw in the mouth and whiskers on the cut lines or add thin strips of paper for whiskers.

For one of my test cuts, I also added some pearl gems for the nose and eyes. 

Have fun with these - they can be used for any sort of candy - I found that the Ghirardelli Squares are a great fit!

Here is the link for the newest version in Design Space - I think it is great that the machine now does almost everything for you.  The hardest part will be choosing the paper and decorations!

You will need to own the Doodlecharms cartridge or purchase this image from that cartridge in order to cut this file - the cartridge and image are not included in Cricut Access.  (links to Cricut in this post are affiliate links which means I may be paid a commission if you purchase something after clicking on the link - your price stays the same. I appreciate your support).

Our plans for this week have been unexpectedly altered due to the snowstorms in Colorado.  I hope any of you who are affected by these storms are safe and warm!

Happy Easter!
