Hare-Raising Fun


I love this tutorial from Taste of Home for folding a "Bunny Napkin!"

How to Fold a Bunny Napkin

For a "hare-raising" reaction at your Easter brunch, fashion these festive napkin folds in the shape of bunnies!
All you need are well-starched square napkins in the color of your choice. (In keeping with our green theme, we used green polka dot napkins.) Then just follow the folding instructions below.
For a brunch buffet, you may want to create a "warren" of rabbits by placing the folded napkins on a nest of shredded scrapbook papers. We selected a variety of papers, then shredded them with a paper cutter. But a 1/4-inch straight-edge paper shredder could also be used.
To make these festive napkin folds, start with well-starched square napkins. Fold the bottom third of the napkin up and the top third down, making a rectangle.

Step-by-Step

How to Fold a Bunny Napkin1. Find the center along the top fold and fold the top corners down, making sure the bottom ends are even.



How to Fold a Bunny Napkin2. Fold up the outside bottom corners.



How to Fold a Bunny Napkin3. Fold left and right sides so that they meet in the center.



How to Fold a Bunny Napkin4. Turn the napkin over and flip the top to bottom. Fold bottom point up.



How to Fold a Bunny Napkin5. Fold the left and right corners to the back and tuck one corner into the other to hold.
