Add some animal attraction with a sweet menagerie of bugs, bunnies, and ducks.
Here's how: Using the templates (download below), punch out desired shapes from origami paper using various-sized oval and circle craft punches. Adhere shapes to egg using white glue. Freehand draw details (feet, whiskers, antennae, etc.) using fine-tip permanent markers.
Tip: Place a piece of regular paper underneath the thin origami paper and punch through the two layers at the same time.
