I have made all kinds of origami animals. I love those that are simple to make and have a striking look.
Today I spent the day absorbed in creating this Easter origami rabbit box, and making a video on how to fold it (show below). It was so hard to not eat the chocolate eggs as I filmed, especially while a little voice kept whispering in my ear: “Don’t postpone joy!”
Despite my disciplined resistance to the temptation of folding paper and designing an origami rabbit, I must confess that 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 multivitamin.
… let a gorgeous spring day pass by without going out for a walk.
This Origami Rabbit Box is my entry to a Simple Origami Design Contest hosted by Nick Robinson and Himanshu Agrawal on Facebook.
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. But at that point 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?
