If you haven’t already heard our family loves holidays, we like to celebrate every single one. Right now Easter’s coming soon and we’ve been busy with various craft projects. We’ve made pom pom bunnies and chicks, chick aviator hats and peek-a-boo bunny hats, and Easter plaques. The last couple of days I fired up my Cricut Explore Air cutting machine to cut some Easter bunnies and eggs to use for our paper projects. To add texture to the cardstock I used my cute little Sizzix Texture Boutique Embossing Machine. Here are some of our Easter Paper Crafts for the Entire Family! I’m sharing some templates too!
Many of these projects are very simple, all you need are cardstock or construction paper, glue, scissors, small pom poms, and scraps of ribbon and twine. If you have a cutting machine you can definitely use that to cut out cute little bunnies; if not you can use the free templates I’m sharing and cut them out by hand.

One of the easiest, and in my opinion, cutest Easter Paper Craft is this Bunny Frame. I just used an 11″x 14″ frame I already had, luckily it was light blue, a perfect Spring color! Here’s how I made this:
Frame – any size you want, mine is 11″ x 14″ which holds an 8″ x 10″ photo.
Cardstock – any color you prefer, I used dark pink for the background, pearly white for the front card, and blue for the bunny.
Small pom pom – you can get some from the craft store
Die cut machine, letter stencils, or letter stickers
Cut the background cardstock to the size of your frame opening
Cut the front piece of cardstock 1/2″ smaller than the background piece. If you have a die cut machine you can cut out the letters for “Hippity Hop Easter’s on its way!”
If not you can stencil the words on, or use stickers. Or you can just print them on with a marker!

If you want to you can emboss the bunny with an embossing machine if you have one, but you don’t have to. You can also hand emboss it, here’s a great tutorial from The Frugal Crafter to show you how to emboss with out a machine![spacer height=”-20px”]
The picture tutorial below will show you how to emboss with the Sizzix Texture Boutique! It’s a cute little machine that’s shaped like a purse. The item you want to emboss is placed into an embossing folder (sold separately in different designs). The folder is then sandwiched between the 2 black plates and in this case because I was embossing a single sheet of cardstock, a mylar shim (plates and shim is included with the machine).
The “sandwich” is then placed in the slot of the machine and cranked thru. When the “sandwich” get thru the cardstock is embossed with the pattern.[spacer height=”-20px”]
Once you’ve cut and embossed all the pieces it’s time to assemble the picture. I used Elmer’s Craftbond Glue Runner, to glue all the pieces together.
Finally I used Aleene’s tacky glue to glue on the pom pom then placed it in the frame.
Another Easter Paper Craft we did is this adorable Bunny Banner.
Like the Bunny Frame I cut out the bunny shapes with the Cricut and embossed some of the with the Texture Boutique. I wanted each bunny to be different so I stamped a couple of them with white ink. [spacer height=”20px” id=”2″]
Cut out the bunnies.[spacer height=”-20px”]
Emboss and/or stamp each bunny. [spacer height=”-20px”]
Punch a hole on each ear of each bunny. Make the holes evenly.[spacer height=”-20px”]
Glue a pom pom tail on each bunny. To learn how to make pom poms using a pom pom maker click here![spacer height=”-20px”]
Thread twine thru the holes and you’re done![spacer height=”20px” id=”2″]
We also made this vertical Bunny Banner using glitter paper.
I cut the bunnies from glitter paper which we glued vertically along a strand of ribbon. We glued on the pom pom tails and tied on a bow. Easy!
Here’s an Easter Paper Craft the kids loved! A paper plate wreath.[spacer height=”20px” id=”2″]
Again I cut out bunnies and eggs on the Cricut and embossed some, and stamped others. Then I cut a circle out of the middle of a paper plate and let the kids glue the eggs and bunnies on it.
When they were done I punched 2 holes on the top of the wreath and threaded a length of ribbon thru for hanging.
These are just a few crafts the whole family can do this Easter season. They are all very inexpensive, easy, and fun. You can decorate your whole house! You can even use the cut outs to make cards and signs. Check out my Easter Plaque craft!
