Over the weekend I bought this origami instruction book (complete with paper). I'm so excited because I've wanted to learn how to do this for years. I wasn't sure how the paper was going to look (ugly colors/patterns???) because it was all sealed in a box. Luckily, I like the papers (nothing too fancy. Basic primary colors and a couple of cute, simple patterns). One of the things I keep seeing in my favorite mags/blogs is an origami mobile for baby's room. Most of them use the origami cranes. I'm loving them!

So I just might have to replace L's current mobile from IKEA (below).

Or I'll just make some decorative items. Who knows....
See book details here and stay tuned for the results of my paper adventure.

  2. I so love origami - it's ingenious. I have a bunch of stuff to do with that, too. I even have a nativity set made out of origami - cool, huh?! I think so.

  3. cool, cool, cool. I would love to see that nativity.

  4. I have been wanting to learn that for years too.... Make a post about how you like it, please?!

  5. i am sure it will look great as always!

    Me butting in again.
    I made one of these http://poppymeidays.blogspot.com/2007/06/little-something.html
    a while ago.
    I used magazine paper that I cut into 20cm squares.
    This size was easy very easy to work with.
