A Bunny Box or Rabbit Box…
I have made all kinds of origami animals.
I love love love animals that are simple to make and have that special look. You know what I mean. Right?
Today I spent the day completely absorbed in creating this Easter origami rabbit box and making a video on how to fold it.
The biggest challenge was not eating the chocolate eggs as I filmed, especially while a little voice kept whispering: “Don’t postpone joy!“
While I created an origami rabbit and even made a video tutorial I confess there were things I didn’t accomplish today that I should have. For example I…
- Didn’t make my bed (unheard of!)
- Avoided completing year-end tax preparations.
- Missed hitting an editing deadline.
- Failed to prepare a healthy lunch.
- Forgot to take my daily vitamins.
- Let a gorgeous spring day pass by without going out for a walk!
It occurs to me that this origami rabbit could be used also as a favor for a child’s birthday party. My inner child tells me that I would’ve loved one for my sixth-year birthday party when I only knew how to fold paper boats.
Isn’t it fun when you are not supposed to be folding paper and you do it anyway? Did you fold this origami rabbit? Any comments to share?
Here’s another great origami Rabbit Box …
And here are more origami figures related to holidays and festivities.

The bunnies are so cute and look so pretty with this striped paper
(I know the paper very well ;have a look at flickr :-) )
Yourbunnies will have a good chance in the contest, I am sure!
When I saw your lovely boxes folded with this paper, I featured them in my Facebook OrigamiSpirit page. I was wondering where I could get some of that paper. Then a good friend of mine sent me a package of the stripe one as a gift. Your work is beautiful. Thank you for visiting!
beautiful box, leyla! very unfair posting though! how am i going to win the contest now? :o)
I’m sure there will be a brilliant folder who enters and takes us both out of the contest… ;-)
Never heard of that, what are they used for? 4”x5.5 folded in half? Photo please…
Thanks for your question. The notecard is 4″ high by 2.75 wide booklet-fold. We cut them down if need be to fit in the envelope.
How cute are they! What a great way to hide candy! Great party favor too…
Thanks for the referral to the Simple Origami Design contest. I’m looking for designs that would hold notecard enclosures.
What size is a note card?
Gostei muito desta Bunny Rabbit Box! É amorosa…tão simples e bonita!
Um abraço Leyla
If I were on Fbk, I would certainly vote for this clever yet simple design.
These are so cute! I should share them with my family at Easter dinner (giving you all the credit, of course)!
As a judge of the competition, I can’t tell you how wonderful this design is ;)
