Crepe Paper Chubby Bunnies

Beautiful and durable, crepe paper lends itself to countless applications. Glue bands of it to a bunch of eggs, affix tiny crepe blooms, and pile them in a bowl for a simple, elegant display. You also can use the paper to create lifelike flowers with egg centers. Or add crepe ears to an egg and watch it turn into a bunny.
