Growing up in Ontario bunnies were these cute little critters that lived in the field behind my house. They frolicked like cartoon characters come to life and feasted on my mom’s flower gardens. My twenty-four toed double jointed tortoise-shell cat, Scrapper would often wander home with one in his jaws.
Here in Alberta bunnies don’t exist. There are no Thumpers or baby Bugs here. Here is the home of the thirty pound jackrabbit that could probably take on all three of my wimpy squishy cats at once. They hide under the pine trees in our yard and munch on the fallen crab apples when they’re not absconding with small neighbourhood children.
These bunnies are neither fierce or furry. They make a sweet statement on your Easter table and their floppy ears are perfect for wiping away glazed ham and apple pie. I love napkin folding because it’s so versatile, fun and unique. You can have just one set of napkins and fold them into countless shapes to surprise your dinner guests all year long.
Want to learn how to fold your very own bunny napkins? Sure you do!
Start by folding your napkin in half with the pattern facing out and the seam facing in. Fold it in half lengthwise again to form a long rectangle.
Fold both ends in and down to make a triangular point in the middle. Fold the bottom corners in to meet at the middle and make a kite shape.
Fold the outside corners into the middle again to make a skinnier kite shape. Carefully flip the napkin over.
Fold the widest point straight down. Carefully flip the napkin over again.
Fold the corners in to meet each other and you’ll notice the folds have created little pockets to slip the points into. Secure the points in the pockets and flip the napkin over one final time. Fluff the long points to reveal the bunny ears and admire your cute creation!
