Thursday 13: Useful Origami

Origami (from ori meaning "folding", and kami meaning "paper") is the traditional Japanese folk art of paper folding, which started in the 17th century AD and was popularized in the mid-1900s. It has since then evolved into a modern art form. The goal of this art is to transform a flat sheet of material into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques, and as such the use of cuts or glue are not considered to be origami.

If you ever are in a situation where you only have some paper at hand and feel the need for let’s say a box or a medal (for whatever reason) those instructions might come in handy.

  1. I like to try origami although I admit that some of it is too difficult! I have a box of that long, thin paper where you can make little puffed up stars. Have you seen those?


  2. No, Carin, I haven’t. But I have seen a lot of other stars while looking around. I always thought Origami paper was square. Can you link me up to them?


  3. Some of these are amazing. I’m going to try the bowl and the fan to get my feet wet first. I might attempt the basket after a glass of wine or so 😉

    Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment on my TT post. Have a great weekend.
