This is a design by Hoàng Tiến Quyết and looks really cute when finished. This is my first attempt at folding these bunnies and I am pretty pleased with the outcome. My better half loves rabbits and I am folding this pair for him to keep on his desk at work. 🙂
The designer is known for designing a lot of models which require shaping and minimal folding. You can view these on his Flickr album. The end results of his hard work is simply astounding. I have a lot of favorites designed by him.
These Rabbits are one of his latest designs and from the diagrams, you can see that there are no complex folds involved. One has to shape / form the design at the end in order to get the desired result.
Paper to use:
To fold Hoàng Tiến Quyết’s Rabbits, you can use tant, Unryu or even Kami. I have attempted by rendition in Unryu which I purchased from Origami-Shop.com – Pack Discovery – 25 squares.
I used a 9 inch approx Unryu sheet of paper which is colored beige / off-white on both sides. I thought the fur like texture will look pretty great and natural like for the bunnies. This sheet I then proceeded to cut diagonally into half in order to get 2 triangles. each of these triangles makes one rabbit.
How to fold the Rabbits:
The designer has generously shared the diagram to his model on the Vietnamese Origami Forum. In his design, he has used colored paper (single side colored, that is) which results in a shaded bunny.
