Happy Year of the Rabbit! May it bring you friends and celebrations. (The card above was sent by a friend who made it all by hand, I love the origami rabbit with the sticker dot for a tail!)

Mrs Charlemagne – Sorry, this card was sent to me, not made by me, so I do not know. Do you have a Kinokuniya near you? Or I’m sure any place with origami supplies will have plenty of rabbit stuff this year.

Mrs Charlemagne, I used the instructions I found online for creating an origami rabbit head, but then stopped part way through. Check out this link, then stop after step 6.

Your friend should maybe go into business selling a product line of these at Etsy or someplace. Although, I would imagine some of those Chinese zodiac sign beasts (e.g. tiger, horse, dragon) would be hard to fold…
