This cute origami puffy bunny is a great paper activity that can be done in your spare time. Once finished, kids are going to love to play with this paper rabbit shaped like a 3D cube.
You will need one piece of paper to do this papercraft. To inflate the origami rabbit, you will have to blow on the paper to inflate it.
Make a waterbomb base of the puffy bunny
Start with a square piece of origami paper and lay it on a flat surface. Make a valley fold a crosswise and lengthwise from left to right (or right to left). After that, crease the fold well and unfold the paper.
The second step is to flip the paper to the other side. Diagonally fold the paper exactly along the dashed lines.
The crease marks should look like the crease lines as illustrated in the image above. Start pushing the paper from both sides as shown by the arrows.
As you push the sides in, the background triangle should form. Hold it down as you continue to bring both sides together.
Flatten the triangle made and the waterbomb base is done!
