Why I love origami

Because -

It is so simple.

a couple sheets of paper,
a ribbon,
a button,
and a bead.

Plus 10 minutes of relaxing, slow, quiet time.


And in the end - something pretty for our home.

I've been watching a lot of tutorials on you tube, but when they're not complicated, I pull
the instructions off of websites like these:



This project has also got me thinking about cutting paper too.  I love that star!

Oh, in the midst of a life that is too often chaotic and frustrating and complicated, how nice to sit for 10 minutes and do something pleasing and simple and calming!

  2. Beautiful! I loved doing origami as a child and had almost forgotten about its charm. I'll definitely have to see what I can remember tomorrow.
