Modified Origami Crane

I was making a few origami cranes today when a thought came to mind. Why not modify one?

So I took one and started to make a few extra folds … then I took another and moved some existing folds .. and so on.

Finally I got this form that I really like. I call it the “Origami Flying Crane”

Hope you guys like it!

Blue kusudama flower bouquet

Ilyere here! As an origami fan, I love making paper flowers. One of my favourite flowers is a kusudama flower, although it’s more modular in nature since it requires some paper-cutting and gluing. So, using florist’s materials and lots of glue, I sat down to make a lovely little bouquet.

I feel like it’s something that could be made for a wedding occasion or similar. The size of the bouquet is somewhat small compared to a real bouquet, but it’s large enough to be held with two hands, so a bridesmaid could hold it.

No, I don’t have any special occasions coming up, I just wanted to make a bouquet using this pack of paper. Blue is my favourite colour, haha.

If you’d like to see my progress on how I made this, you can visit my personal blog.

My origami work progress

Folded out of foil backed 3-layer paper I made assembled at home. This allowed for more freedom in choosing the right colors and textures. I made a step forward in overall composition and photography. I hope you enjoy my works.

Cheers

Mini shelf of origami-filled jars

Ilyere here! When I was in Cambridge, I came across a small fabric and haberdashery store called CallyCo. I wonder if many people knew about it? Since further along the street and in the more populated area is a Cath Kidston store, a very well-known store for cute items and sewing materials. I liked visiting both stores to see what they had. Cath Kidston sells mostly items and clothing branded with their patterns, whilst CallyCo sells typical haberdashery materials such as loose buttons, various fat quarters, etc. If you were to walk a bit further, you’d find John Lewis in the Lion Yard shopping centre, who also has a large haberdashery section. Cambridge is quite wonderful for crafty people!

Anyway, this shelf was acquired from CallyCo. It’s a small wooden shelf with metal clips to display it on a wall, and comes with three small jars. I have a feeling these jars were meant for storing loose materials, but since I have a thing for origami and jars, here is the result!

I filled each jar with either paper stars, straw stars, or origami cranes; all types of ‘small’ origami! The jar that sits in the middle is a bit unlucky though, because it’s obscured by the heart in front of it, but the overall look is nice. Now I wonder where should I put it? Should I hang it up or prop it against the wall somewhere?
