Easter is a fun time of year, and we have a great idea to share with you for a more sustainable Easter gift-wrapping option - these bags are perfect for the little gifts you give on Easter and are both eco-friendly and handmade (just like our cookies)!
Best of all our easter bunny paper bags are great for popping a few boxes of our delicious Easter cookies into ... and who doesn't love scrumptious hand made Easter cookies!
All of our packaging including the bunny bag itself can then be recycled into the existing NZ recycling system. Simply pop the cardboard into the home recycling bin and any of our plastic can be shaken out and disposed of into the soft plastics recycling system at your local supermarket - find out more HERE.
When it comes to Easter, there are many things to consider and many options out there to purchase but if you want something different and budget friendly to put your Easter treats in, why not make your own and get the kids involved too?
These bags are great for encouraging creativity and imagination in children, while still being environmentally friendly. Getting the kids involved in making them can be fun too and you can use any old rectangle shaped brown paper bag you have on hand to make them. We have created an A4 sized template (download here) for cutting out the ears but you should be able to easily eye ball draw them. You simply fold your bag down the middle and cut as per the template to suit your bag size - another great tutorial for you is HERE.
We kept ours simple but there are many versions you can make - check out Pinterest for different ideas on how you can put your own stamp on them.
