So origami! As I had mentioned on my Instagram last week when I posted one of these Valentine-inspired projects, I’m now in the origami phase of the pandemic, and to be honest I’m finding making them is super-soothing (especially with loved ones in mind). Origami has always been that way for me, almost a form of meditation when you get into the flow. But first off, I want to give a hat tip to a couple makers over on YouTube, (ColorMania and Tatiana Frolova) who inspired me and have some excellent origami tutorials there if you have some time be sure to check them out! Okay, let’s take a look!
1. Easy Origami Valentine Bows
So this origami fold which I initially spotted on Pinterest is one of the funnest origami things I’ve made in a while. And so so cute! I thought they would be fun to top a sweet box of chocolates or something special for the ones you love. As you’ll see below, I made them different sizes; all you need is the original piece of paper to be completely square to make. This project is fairly easy, so even older kids should be able to make it. The reward is impressive! Visit the link in the “what you need” for the how to.
2. Origami Roses
This second one, the origami rose, although easy, is a little trickier to tame. The paper I used was a little thicker, so it didn’t curl as much as I would’ve liked. But still, a beautiful rose to give to someone special is the result. I thought they might look nice to decorate a table with. Or check out my last idea at the end of this post. Btw, I think I need to take some red colour photography courses. So hard to get right.
