Origami Spring Bunny Craft

(Don't forget to link up to my Marvelous Mess party......I'll be picking one project to feature on my sidebar for a week!! )
Disclosure: I receive payments for referrals to Social Spark. You can too! See below!

I found the awesomest tutorial for inflatable Origami Bunnies on You tube. I went a little bonkers and made a whole herd of bunnies living in their cozy little warren. Wanna see??
And, this wouldn't be a craft blog if I didn't include something involving sheet music. So, here you have it, a sheet music bunny:

How about some Bunnies with Whiskers?? I couldn't decide which I liked better. To make the whiskers I just used 3 pieces of hemp rope, hot glue them to the face, and a little pink felt triangle hot glued on top:

If you are interested in making your own check out this video!!

I used a couple of dabs of hot glue behind the ears because I wanted them to stay back. It helps the whole thing stay a little more secure. 

These little coneys just crack me up. They are so CUTE!!! And, really not too hard to make. Promise!!

I also wanted to tell you about the awesomest blog advertising company out there:
Social Spark is great. 
I totally recommend it!
