Step 1: Making Creases
To begin with, the origami rabbit craft, take a white origami paper. Fold it half vertically and crease it well, then, unfold it. Repeat the same by folding the paper half horizontally and diagonally (both sides) to make creases.
Step 2: Forming A Triangle
Now, fold the paper along the horizontal crease and hold your paper from the center. Now, push in the ends of the horizontal crease and let paper out along the diagonal ones to form triangles, and then fold the triangles along the middle crease you will see over them, to overlap them. Finally, you will see a single triangle with folded sides.
Step 3: Folding Triangle Edges Upwards
Once the triangle is formed, fold the edges of the upper layer of the triangle in the upward direction and bring it to the middle. You will see a diamond shape with a partition.
Step 4: Folding Diamond Corners
Fold the left and right corners of the diamond to the middle partition. These will act as pockets for the next step.
Step 5: Inserting Upper Corners In The Pockets
Insert the upper corners of the diamond in the left and right pockets you made in the previous step.
Step 6: Inserting By Leaving Some Part
Make sure to insert the corners into the pockets by leaving some parts out and crease these folds as you can see in the image.
Step 7: Flipping The Paper
Now, flip the craft back.
Step 8: Folding Sides Along The Middle Crease
Take the corners of the triangle and fold the sides along the middle crease over the triangle. You will see a kite shape.
Step 9: Folding Bottom Corners
Fold the bottom corners of the kite shape in the upward opposite diagonal direction from the middle half.
Step 10: Folding The Sides Along The Back Sides Of Paper
Fold the bottom side of the paper diagonally to make a printed shape in the bottom mid-end and also align with the back paper. These folds will look like an arrow with a partition.
Step 11: Making A Rabbit
Fold the outward left and right slanting sides of the arrow to the middle partition to make creases. Unfold these folds to make to coming flaps of these folds. These will be the ears of your rabbit.
Now, from the back side of the paper, hold it from the side and try to fold it in half along the middle crease over it. Make sure to not fold it entirely, just to give it a slanting look. This will be your rabbit. Now, blow in your rabbit to give it a 3D shape.
Step 12: Making An Eye
Using a pink sketch pen, make a dotted eye over the rabbit as shown in the image.
Step 13: Detailing The Rabbit
Now, using green, red, and yellow sketch pens make a flower with yellow center and red petals and also leaves around it randomly. Also, using the pink sketch pen, make a line in the ears to detail them as shown in the image.
