HOW TO MAKE EASTER BUNNY NAPKINS
To make adorable bunny napkins, use a square napkin. Today I’m using paper napkins to make bunny napkins. You can also use fabric ones. Just make sure you starch them before. Personally, I think paper napkins are less fuss to use than fabric ones.
It’s better to use large napkins than smaller ones. I used napkins from IKEA; fully opened, they are 40×40 cm (about 16×16 inches).
Bunny Napkin Fold
Take one large napkin out of the packaging. Open the napkin. Fold a fully open napkin facing the loose ends away from you (steps 1-4). Fold the napkin in half, and loose ends should be facing away from you (steps 5-8).
Find a middle (see dashed line), and fold the right side vertically on a dashed line 1-3). Repeat on the left side (steps 4-6). Press the folded lines down.
Take the right bottom corner and fold it up on a diagonal dashed line. Press the fold down (steps 1-3). Repeat on the left side (steps 4-6).
Now take the right corner and fold it to the centerline. Press the fold-down firmly (steps 1-4). Repeat on the left side (step 5). Now turn the whole folden napkin (step 6).
Fold the top corner down on a dashed line, and press down firmly (steps 1-4). Turn the folded napkin over vertically (steps 4-6).
Here comes the tricky part of the bunny napkin folding technique. First, acknowledge the right bottom corner (step 1). And then, on the left side, on the underside, find what should look like a little “pocket” (step 2). Tuck the right corner into the pocket. Press the connection firmly (steps 3-4). Gently open up the rounded base. Carefully widen the ears. (steps 5-6).
Wouldn’t they look great alongside my Gingham Bunny Cookies?
