How to Make a Bunny Ears Silverware Holder

All you need is a cutting machine like a Cricut or Silhouette and a few easy to find supplies to get started.

Supplies

  • Cricut or other cutting machine
  • 2 Sheets of 8.5×11″ card stock – I used 65-80lb weight
  • Burlap ribbon – about 5-6” wide
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks 
  • Cricut blue light grip mat 
  • Printer
  • Ribbon of your choice
  • Sharpie or pencil to trace template 
  • Craft scissors

Instructions

Step 1: 

Download the free SVG file. Upload the file to your design space. Highlight all of the layers and ungroup them to work on each layer separately.

Step 2:

Turn off all the other layers by using the eye icon on the right hand side of the layers panel, while leaving the purple ear tracing template visible. After, choose “make it” to cut normally.

Step 3: 

After, choose “Make” and this is how your mat should look. If everything looks right, hit continue and adjust you material dial or setting to medium card stock, more pressure.

Load the card stock on to a blue light grip mat and hit go.

Step 4:

Begin working on the place setting tags. Add and adjust the text in your design space using the text feature. Layer the text on top of each tag. 

The tags are colored in design space and will print the color shown. If you would like the tags to be white, or you’re using print and cut on colored paper (Cricut Maker only), change the color of the shape to white AFTER text is layered. 

Step 5:

Select both layers (tag and text) and once ready, hit flatten to create a print and cut layer. Flattening will combine the layers into one. After, select “Make it” to continue to print then cut. 

Step 6:

Next, hit make and this is how your mat should look.

The outline of the tag will disappear until it’s ready to cut. Your machine will cut on the registration lines.

Step 7:

Hit continue and print. Once print is complete, adjust your material dial or setting to medium card stock, more pressure.

**Only Maker machines will be able to print and cut on colored paper. Air Explore machines will need to be printed on white paper, but can print the text in color. 

Step 8:

Once all pieces are cut, use the ear tracing template and trace the tops of the ears on the burlap. 

Step 9:

Cut the ears from the end of the burlap, leaving the rest attached to the spool of burlap.

Step 10:

Line up the silverware to determine how long the burlap will need to be. Fold over the burlap to create the pocket and cut.

Step 11:

After the length is cut, line up the edges and apply a thin line of hot glue down each side.

Step 12:

Wrap the ribbon from the back to the front, add a tag, then tie a bow.
