Origami Bunny

It's Bunny Week, here at My Creative Life!  It's a whole week of all things rabbit.  It's like Shark Week, but fuzzier.

Being major rabbit-fans, we're always on the lookout for a cute bunny craft.  When I found instructions for bunny origami, I knew Trevor would want to try it.  Aren't they adorable? 



They're really easy to make!  Start with a square piece of paper.  We used a 6-inch square for the white bunny on the left and a 5-inch square for the grey bunny on the right.  We used ordinary copy paper, which worked fine but didn't fold quite as cleanly as origami paper would.  

Step 1: Fold the paper in half diagonally to make a triangle.

 
Step 2: Fold down the diagonal edge.  This will form the ears, so a wider fold will make wider ears.  

 
Step 3: Rotate the triangle so that the ears are on the bottom.  Fold up the left side to meet the point at the top.

 
Step 4: Repeat with the right side.

 
Step 5: Fold up the bottom point.  This will make the base the bunny will sit on.

 
Step 6: Turn the bunny over.  Fold the top point in to finish the shape of the face.

 
Here's what it looks like from the back.

 
Step 7: Add a face!  These are mine.  The ones at the top of the post are Trevor's.  

 
 Here's Trevor with all four of our bunnies.  He lined them all up, gave them names and had them talk with each other.  Adorable.


Here are a few other rabbit crafts and projects you might enjoy!
See you tomorrow for Day 2 of Bunny Week!
