Napkin Origami: Easter Rabbit



Being that I love origami and I also like to have fun little touches of whimsy when having guests over, I "hopped" onto this idea from Martha Stewart. For the instructions below I used a square paper napkin, but when making the real thing, I'll use a well-starched cotton napkin that will also make a larger rabbit to display on the dinner plates:
Start by folding the square napkin into thirds. Fold the bottom up first, then the top down, to form a nice, even rectangle:



Fold the rectangle in half, creasing the middle, and unfold. Fold the top corners down to the center line:



Fold the bottom corners up to the middle:


Bring the right and left edges together to the center. Hold it tight, as it will be a bit of a challenge to fold all the material over and hold it together:




Turn the napkin upside down. Then turn it over. Fold the bottom up:


To fasten, fold the left and right corners back, and tuck one pocket of the corner into the other (if this is hard to do, just add a little piece of tape or ribbon. Shape and pull the ears and tail and you have an adorable Easter rabbit!






So easy and fun! Love that!

These are so adorable. Origami doesnt compute in my brain, but my 11 year old son loves it and is quite good. I'll have to have him make his mamma some bunnies! lol

Seems to be easy. I'll try it alone and once I mastered it I will teach to my friends.
Hope I go through!
