A simple necklace with mini-origami and some parrot feathers.
I hope you guys like it 😀
Valentine’s Day is almost here!
For it I have prepared a special Origami. What is it? Well … what can be expressed as love? Blooming flowers? the feeling of butterflies in your belly? A red heart? A red stone of passion?
How about all that and miniature size! This little bottle contains blooming flowers to symbolize beauty, a butterfly to symbolize freedom, a heart to symbolize love and a blood red stone for passion. All of these with a dash of patience and devotion!
As a bonus I also made a Card. A bit of Kirigami combines with Origami hearts and a cute drawing.
I hope you guys like it!

Spotlights are for all and especially for those who try their best and are creative about it!
Lately I have been chatting on Deviantart with a lovely and very enthusiastic person.
She loves color. She loves art. She loves to put her hands to work and get impressive results.
As colorful and happy as she is it only makes me glad to offer her a spotlight on L2ORIGAMI.
You can find her page here: Deviantart – page
She practices many forms of art and I would love to post them all, but this being an origami blog I’m going to feature only some of her origami creations.
As you can see she loves to be creative and combine colors (sometime even makes her own pater paper!)
As she states “My purpose is not only furthering my own ambitions, but also to encourage others to do the same.” we can only wish her good luck in her endeavors! May your ambitions lead you far!
Don’t forget to visit her page and see her other non-origami creations! Devianrart – page
Well this has escalated quickly!
I now used aluminum foil that you can buy anywhere at any shop (comes in roles and it’s used for wrapping food).
This is thiner than candy wrap foil and allot more stubborn!!
– a fold will always be visible and it will never tear at the fold line
– thin and can be twisted in all kinds of shapes as end design
– durable material, does not get wet or deteriorated by time
– has unique aspect
– can be used for many origami designs
– it can easy get punctured so care for sharp things
– tears only at the edges
– thin and light so don’t work near a windy spot (outdoors, near a fan, near some parrots …)
– I only have one color …. silver
– can not be used for origami designs that require inflating!
So here is some of my test origami 🙂 a bow and a flower!
Ilyere here, with a informative (?) and long (sorry) post about kusudamas. A foreword though, the word kusudama is commonly associated with the flower, and a kusudama ball with the modular that arises from gluing flowers together. However, a kusudama translates literally as (薬玉; lit. medicine ball), so the term ‘kusudama ball’ is rather redundant. Oh well, the more you know!
If you’ve never made a kusudama before, I did a tutorial on how to make a single flower ages ago, although it was done in an older format. Anyway, here’s some tips to make your average kusudama stand out.
Firstly, what kind of paper do I use? Well, any sort of paper is okay. Patterned paper such as the scrapbooking kind works especially well. If you want to mix colours and patterns together, go for two, or six kinds, that way you can keep the symmetry of the ball. If you don’t care about symmetry, well that’s fine too! Go crazy with the patterns if you like it.
Secondly, decorate your unit. You can use superglue to stick buttons to the centre of your kusudama units to cover the gap in the middle and give it a little appeal. Use any kind of button you want, be it large, neon-coloured, or even pearls! The other option I’ve seen is to insert a quilled flower in the middle of the unit.
Thirdly, string the kusudama with anything you like, as long as it stays in place. Popular choices are twine and ribbon. Thread is okay, but you will need lots of threads bundled together to make it hold up okay. Double knot the top to make a loop to hang the kusudama, if you want.
Lastly, decorate the string so that there is something dangling off the end. Usually beads do the trick. You can also add cranes, or even more kusudama units!
That’s all from me now, hope this inspires you to add a bit of creativity to your work. =)
I’ve made my fair share of roses before. I would make various flowers, then tape then to wire stems and wrap with green tape. But have you ever thought you could make a rose more that just a pretty decoration?
In this version, I took a pen and wrapped it with green paper. I then attached a Kawasaki rose to a calyx and glued it to the top of the stem. I also added a simple leaf. And thus you have a pretty rose pen! If you wanted to, you could make a stem by using the ink container inside the pen instead. The stem would look more natural as it is quite thin, but it becomes sort of hard to write with.
Learn how to make beautiful things from paper!
If you can't fly, I'll paint you wings!
