A few weeks back, I was at a conference and to be honest, some bits were really boring. But I had a great time practicing my origami skills with the Japanese professor sitting next to me!


Lotus flower made with a napkin, 2 butterflies (one decorated) and a crane. The paper was a bit thick but they turned out pretty good.

When I came back, I actually got some real origami paper and decided to make origami pendants. I’ve made a crane and a butterfly so far but I’d love to make more.


Blue origami paper, some transparent nail polish to fix my crane into place, silver metal wire and you have my first origami pendant!

What is your fave origami design?
