{week 8} origami

It may be becoming obvious that I love paper – I have drawers and boxes full of the stuff. That’s not to say I don’t need more – you can’t really ever have enough paper (or fabric, but that’s another story).

So this week’s project is another paper-based one. I’ve made origami cranes before but never in such bright and pretty paper (from Paperchase by the way) so I folded up a few to make a pretty display (glass bowl was an engagement present and has been in a cupboard for a while as I didn’t have anything to put in it). You can find instructions for cranes here.

So cranes are pretty but been there done that so I found something new to try…

Origami flower

This pretty flower was made using this fab tutorial. I’ve had it bookmarked for ages so it was great to give it a go at last.

Hope you enjoyed this week’s project. I’ve covered quite a few papercrafts so far – do you have a favourite I haven’t tried yet?
