Rabbit Face

Rabbit Face

easy bunny Rabbit Face
This origami rabbit face is a clever design which uses both sides of the paper to get the best effect. You can use origami paper which has color on one side and is white on the back side. Or, you can use double sided origami paper which has a different color on the back and front.

No double sided paper? Not a problem, you can still make the model and the multiple layers of paper will be enough to give an impression of eyes and nose. The big ears help identify that it is a rabbit.

This model is not hard to make, but if you use thick paper, then you may have to put the model under a heavy book for a day to keep the creases down.

Step 12:

Finger through the layers of paper at the ears and find the place where the paper changes color (two layers of paper).

Peel these two layers back to expose the colored paper. Press down to establish the fold. The ears look better if you make the fold so it extends beyond the level of the bunny’s head.
