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.

Introduction

Beautiful and durable, crepe paper lends itself to countless applications. In fact, a strip of crepe paper conforms perfectly to an egg's shape. Add crepe ears to an egg and watch it turn into a bunny.

These adorable table decorations can double as place cards; write names on one side of each egg with a marker.

    Couldn't you use plastic eggs? They come in so many different pretty colors and won't break as easy.

    I've seen crepe paper at some of the Dollar Stores around our area before. I can remember making all kinds of fun projects from crepe paper when I was a kid! Lots of different variations of flowers...it was so much fun, and really easy to work with. The crinkly texture makes for very nice, believable flowers.

    NeoMastiffMom - crepe paper is basically what party streamers are made out of, so if you look in the party section, there should be sheets of crepe paper.

    Will crepe paper streamers work if they are big enough for the project?

    I puchase crepe paper online by bulk in dickblicks art supply, and for unusual colors you can get them at blumchen.com

    Yes, agree, crepe paper is the hardest thing to find. I also went to Michael's Joann's and Party supply stores. I ended up using gift tissue paper.

    Where-O- where can I purchase Crepe paper. I checked my local Micheal's and the clerk had no idea what crepe paper is. I remember it come in sheets and in packages similar to tissue paper. Can anyone name me a source.
    Thanks.

    The egg centered flowers are so springy! Easy to make and made lots for almost nothing.

    I made the Chubby bunnies over the weekend and they came out perfect! Fun, very easy and zero cost to make. I love them and have them around my breakfast table.
