Select white, pink and 2 different shades of grey colored craft papers for the bunny paper bag puppet craft. Trace the inner ear, nose and blush cutouts on pink paper, trace the tail, tooth and the belly patterns on white paper, trace the head, body (see next step) and outer ear patterns on the lighter shade of grey paper; and trace the leg patterns on the other shade of grey paper. Cut out the traced pattern nicely.
Attach the inner ear cutouts on the outer ear cutouts and attach the nose cutout near the bottom –middle part of the head cutout. Cut out a piece of paper from the lighter shade of grey colored craft paper to cover either side of the paper bag, this will be the body pattern of the bunny puppet. Attach the leg cutouts on the bottom side of the body cutout.
Attach the ear pattern on the top side of the head pattern.
Attach the eyes, blush and tooth cutouts on the head pattern nicely.
Use a sharpie or gel pen to draw the outline of the eyes and to trace the mouth of the papercraft bunny puppet. Attach the tail on any one side of the body pattern, keeping the round end of the tail facing outside. Select a paper bag for the puppet craft.
The open end of the paper bag will be the bottom side of the papercraft bunny puppet. Attach the body pattern on either side of the paper bag and remember to keep the legs facing the open end of the bag.
Attach the head pattern on the bottom side of the paper bag and then flatten the head with the body pattern to complete the bunny puppet craft.
