DIY Origami Bunny

My craft fair a week and a half ago was a disaster, very poorly organised which resulted in very few people coming to it... I did have 5 sales though and one was an Origami Bunny filled with mini eggs.

They are pretty simple to make and once you start it is hard to stop... mine really are breeding like rabbits!

I used this video tutorial and after a few false starts I got the hang of it and was able to rattle them off pretty quickly. Instead of traditional thin origami paper I used scrapbooking paper which was a bit too thick and the ears had a tendancy to go pointy, like this one,

but I wanted the thicker paper to hold the eggs as they are quite heavy.

On a totally seperate note picmonkey have loads of new stuff for free, I have just spent ages deciding which critters to put pn my picture...!


  1. Cute bunny, you are clever! Sorry to hear the craft fair wasn't very successful, hopefully you will have better luck next time.

    Oh and I saw your fabric bow featured on A Round Tuit - well done!

    Hugs, Estelle xx
