How To Make Easter Bunny Bags
You Will Need
- Cutting machine, such as a Cricut or Silhouette
- HTVRont Auto Heat Press
- Glitter HTV, I used pink, purple and teal glitter.
- Canvas drawstring pouches
- Weeding tools
- Fine point blade
- Purple cutting mat
- A White PomPom for each bag
- Super Glue or hot glue gun and glue sticks
Upload Your Easter Bunny SVG Template To Cricut Design Space
To upload your design for the Easter Bag to design Space, click on the zip file and open the file In Design Space by clicking upload and choosing the SVG File. For help on uploading to design space see this article. To personalise your bag simply add a name from the font menu of the left hand side.
Measure Your Treat Bags And Size You Egg Hunt Bunny Accordingly
Measure your drawstring bag and size you SVG using the guides on design space, now mirror the image before sending to cut. I was cutting 3 bunnies in 3 different colours, but coloured them all black so I could cut them all on the same mat.
Cut Your HTV For Your DIY Easter Bunny Bags
To avoid wastage cut your HTV slightly bigger than you need, about 1cm wider than the size of the file. Place the HTV on the cutting mat shiny side down so you are cutting into the back of the vinyl, using a brayer to adhere the vinyl to the mat.
Next go to the design space preview page and ensure your SVGs are positioned where you have placed the vinyl on the cutting mat.
To do this click edit mat and move the images. You can see in the images above and below that I was able to fit the vinyl on one mat which saved time. Once cut weed your project ready to heat press onto the canvas bags.
Heat Press The HTV Bunnies Onto The Canvas Bag
I used the HTVRont Auto Heat Press, I set the heat to 315°f for 20 seconds, once ready I positioned all 3 bags onto the press so the cord was not on the plate but over the side and pressed go.
Once heat pressed, allow to cool and remove the backing to reveal the bunny design.
Add The Pom Pom Tails
Allow the HTV to cool and and use superglue to glue on pop pom tails, let the glue dry and you are ready to go.
