    Cuter than Cute Easter Paper Bunnies

    All you need is a thin sheet of scrapbook paper to make these origami bunnies. They were originally designed by origami artist Jacky Chan and are so beautiful. They are, however, quite complicated and challenging for beginning origami artists.

    Do not expect favorable results at first with this paper craft project, if you do you will be disappointed. However if you persist and watch Jacky's video, you will be able to fold the rabbit after numerous tries. It helps to stop the video at certain...MORE steps to be able to keep up with the video instructions. I had to watch it many times before I understood the instructions. Don't give up the end results are worth it!

    This origami rabbit is excellent for Easter because it has a pocket you can fill with Easter grass and candy. Put a couple of the rabbits into an Easter basket or use them as table decorations for your holiday dinner.

    Another option is to place a small electric tea light into the pocket and display it as a paper lantern decoration. Any way you use these origami rabbits they are sure to be a hit!

    Paper Craft for Easter - Quilled Paper Easter Eggs

    This quilled Easter egg craft is another non-traditional method to decorate an Easter egg. The designer of the egg doesn't mention whether or not real eggs are used in this paper craft project, but I would think that this art would work best with wooden or plastic eggs. It takes an enormous amount of time to cut, glue and paste the quilled circles, so it would be a shame to spend a lot of time making them just to throw them away after cracking and eating the egg inside! These eggs will...MORE certainly be treasured as a keepsake and would look lovely for years to come!
