Folding a flat piece of paper into a lovely little rabbit is so mesmerizing and entertaining and even more so when we can relate the finished creature to a cherished holiday. Whichever model you choose, folding an origami animal always creates a special feeling.
This origami rabbit box is a perfect example of this origami magic. Origami artist Jacky Chan (Hong Kong) is the designer of this model and he calls it: Origami Little Rabbit Lantern.
This model is made with one square of paper. Any paper will do but I suggest using a piece that has color on one side and white on the other for your first try. If you begin with the color side up, you will create a colorful rabbit with white ears. For a white bunny with colored ears–like those in the photograph above–flip the paper over, and start with the white side up. Be sure to experiment with different papers and patterns.!
This rabbit is easy to fold and perfect for holding small chocolate Easter eggs. Don’t wait for Easter to fold this rabbit. And be careful… rabbits, even origami ones, tend to reproduce quickly!
