I couldn't help myself. Instead of studying, like a good girl should - I sit and fold. ~.~' I found these two to be incredibly cute and couldn't resist making them.

Pucca is about 440 pieces, Garu is 420~ish. She took about a day to make, while he was folded in a few hours. I used whatever animation I could find of them as reference. The umbrella is a little deformed as it was made in five minutes. Definitely a Valentine's Day type of gift though. Would make someone really happy, I'm sure. And somehow, it makes me think of Goong, lol. I have no idea why, honestly.

Hope you guys enjoy this.

PS. If anyone would like a diagram for this, I could whip one up in case anyone decides they want to try this. 
PPS. Thank you to anyone that takes the time to view and comment! Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. (~///~)

It's all about the cut. )

I have a bunch of projects posted over on my page, but then I saw this community the other day and knew I'd end up joining. 
So I'd like the take the time to say a quick hello to you all. Loving this community so far for its creativity and its amazingly talented members. 

Anywho, the piece below is my newly finished 3D origami Maneki Neko (Beckoning Cat). It's modular origami, where you stack module upon module to build them into something bigger. Well, mine ended up being a good 4000 pieces, give or take a few. It's about 12 inches tall, so definitely the biggest 3D origami I have ever made. Design is all mine, so I'm kind of proud, lol. v.v I know, shame on me.

Hi all,
It's the librarian from San Francisco again. This time we're teaching people how to make these cute little lotus flowers out of paper and tiny beads. The program is open to everyone who can attend. It will be on Thursday, August 9, 2012 from 3:30 - 5:00 pm at the Chinatown Branch of the San Francisco Public Library.

Oh, dearest Craft-Gurus! I come to with a question!

I have been searching for instructions on how to create Korean origami "stars"; I've gone so far as to email this seller and ask for instructions. She mailed me back a 75px by 75px image that I can't enlarge or read. :\

Do any of you almighty crafters know where I could find instructions for this sort of origami? I haven't been able to find them anywhere on the 'net.

"What Can I do With . . . ?"!

That's right, everyone's favourite question. I've been on an origami kick lately, and have been folding a LOT (I mean a LOT - I have a 72oz Ziploc container FULL) of 2-d and 3-d origami creations (animals, flowers, you name it, I've made it). I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to what I can use these for. I also have tons more origami paper (people just keep *giving* it to me!), so anything that would involve folding new things is a-okay as well.

And just so this isn't text-only . . . here is a link to a picture of the very first costume I have ever made all on my own (last years involved help in the form of a pleated skirt). In case anyone's wondering, this is me as Sheena from Tales of Symphonia for the Game Cube.
