I promised that more of my recent origami love would show up here, and there will be more! But today I want to share two things. The first is this book:
Do you see who that is in the picture? Shari Lewis! She co-authored Folding Paper Toys, and is in all of the photos. So fun!
We've had this book for a very long time (it was published in 1963, so was probably my mom's, even though it has my grandma's and my late "aunt's" name in it). I remember always going to it when I've been on past origami kicks, but I also remember always being disappointed at the selection of designs. They aren't all traditional origami, but my goodness, there are some very fun things here!
OK, next thing to share:
You know those adorable little puffy stars that you see all the time? These are hearts like those! Eek! I love them, and they are really easy. I found the video tutorial, and although it's a little hard to see, you can still figure it out. Make one, make a bunch! You won't want to stop!
Soon I'll have a little something for you to go along with all this folded paper fun I've been having...
