My youngest likes oragami but he doesn't do stars as far as I know. A couple of those pics with the masses of stars are pretty impressive. I like the last one of the fish the best (even if they aren't star fish).

Happy MM!

My nephew had a birthday yesterday and received origami paper and instructions. I just copied some of your star directions for him. NOT EASY but so beautiful and whimsical. An art I wish I knew how to do. Clever, clever and nice to see you "back".

Happy MM.

I invented oragami.

Pam said...

Beautiful and clever indeed and very design worthy; would expect nothing less from you! What a great idea for the kids to do Christmas ornaments. Hmmmmm. Happy MM!

these are way awesome, Fishy! Those pink on black ones are the best of the bunch, IMO.

Happy MM!

Good morning Fishy,

I do origami all the time. Sometimes it looks like a rock, sometimes it looks like an asteroid, most of the time it just looks like a crumpled piece of paper.

Great take on the topic.

Happy Mute Monday

Buzz,
Good for the kids, great exercise for teaching kids to conceptualize.

Boxer,
Nephew will have a good time with this activity. It's great for kids to be interactive with things without screens. Hands and minds on the same task is a good thing!

Al,
I will not be awarding you the Origami Peace Prize.

Pam,
It is an interesting art form. Not sure I have the patience for this but I would love to lean how to do that Origami money fish!

Kym,
Those pink ones are the Origami version of a bouquet of stargazer lillies.

Anna,
One year, when I have the time, I am going to make Origami ornaments out of beautiful Christmas wrapping papers and use them as the package trims.

JCake,
Happy Monday, one day I hope to have folding money!

Aunty,
What gets really nimble is my tongue wrapping around all those scribble words when I take to trying to do this here craft.

Karl,
Those asteroids you mentioned are my number one output!

I had an origami kit as a kid but I don't remember there being a star. Lots of birds, though. Stars are such a compelling shape, that's for sure! Happy Mute Monday, Fishy!

Vixen,
Mobiles are wonderful objects. Happy Monday.

Moi,
What do yu mean when you WERE a kid?
