I was standing in line at a local decorating store last week waiting to check out with my 8 hot pink napkins. In front of me was a sweet woman checking out armloads of Easter bunnies, chicks, Easter dishes, glittery Easter eggs, two long Easter garland filled with spring flowers and eggs and lots, lots more. Her bounty would certainly make a bright Easter themed table but all I could think about was where she was going to put all this “stuff” when Easter was over!!! There are great ways to set an Easter themed table without buying a lot of extra Easter paraphernalia. Today I’m sharing a way to make your Easter table look personal and charming and… well, Eastery. Let’s make Bunny Place Cards!

I made these sweet little bunnies from old book pages to work with my BOOK PAGE EASTER EGGS.
I used this cute little bunny to make the place cards. You can find the image to download HERE.
Here’s what you will need…
- Bunny Template
- Cardstock and Printer
- Old Book Pages
- Hole Punch
- Download and print the bunny template. Adjust it for the size of the place card you want. Cut it out.
- I chose to create the bunny place card on a page of an old book. Here’s how I made the book page to be sturdy enough to work as a place card. I sprayed the back of the book page with a spray glue and then stuck it to white cardstock. Then I put the cut out template on the book page and trace around the template with a pencil. Cut ou the book page bunny.
- Write the name of each person on the front of the place card. I wrote the names with a black marker. Punch a hole on either side of the bunny, as shown above. Thread the ribbon from the back of the bunny to the front on one side.
- Put the bunny place card on top of the napkin and bring the ribbon around the back of the napkin and thread the ribbon through the other hole from the back to the front. Cut the ends of the ribbon.
You can make the place cards using fabric, wrapping paper and other colorful paper too!
One last tip… be careful to trace and cut out the bunny with the book page right-side up. After about 20 bunnies, the one I chose to use for to photograph was upside-down! Ooops! Life happens! So he’s a “funny” bunny!
