Do you like to make origami creatures? Folding origami animals brings the magic of transforming a piece of paper with our own hands into a recognizable figure.

One of the beauties of origami is that no material is taken away, and no material is added. By the magic of diligent fingers in a few minutes, we can recreate a delightful figure such as this inflatable origami bunny, designed by Robert Neale.

At the end of the folding process, with a little kiss, we blow life into the body of this paper bunny!

Tips and suggestions for making the origami rabbit

  • In the video, the rabbit is demonstrated using kami paper.
  • To learn how to fold this rabbit use a 6 x 6 inch (15 × 15cm) piece of Kami paper.
  • Thicker paper such as “Tant” or Japanese “Washi” paper.
  • The finished rabbit shows only one side of the paper. It is not necessary to use paper with a different color on each side.
  • Rabbits tend to proliferate and this one might not be an exception. Once you fold one you will want to make many more.
