Illustrated Craft Tutorial - How to Make an Easter Bunny Paper Tea Light House

This is a cheery and easy decoration to make for your table at Easter dinner. This technique works well if you have a die cutting machine to create the aperature in the house. It only requires one template for the entire house. If you do not have a die cutting machine, but have a paper punch and/or a template you can trace, you can use this Paper House Tutorial.

The template, supplies needed and larger images of the project can be found on the project page when you click on the picture to the right.

6. Place the die on one of the 4 side walls of the house.

The bottom floor of the house makes the template too wide for the die cutting machine. Fold it over so that it is also sandwiched between the two cutting plates. Make sure the paper is folded over the die and not underneath it so it does not get cut.
