What's this? An actual craft on my site? You probably forgot what they look like here. I know I have.
Just when I thought the fall season was here, we get hit with 90 degree weather, ugh! But, that's not stopping me from decorating the house with leaves, pumpkins, and gourds. I run on a strict seasonal decorating schedule and if it's fall, then that's how I'm decorating the house.
I'm not sure if "envelope origami" really exists but for my amusement lets pretend it does. Envelope origami - to create a likeness of an object using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably without gluing or cutting the paper, and using only one envelope. In this case, I folded an envelope into a box. It's an easy craft to turn your junk mail into something functional. Security envelopes work best for this project. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
If you've been following this site, you're probably guessing I got this idea from an earlier post about origami bows . However, this paper bow actually came about when I was making some paper pinwheels. It all started like this; I was debating whether to do a post on mini yo- yos or mini guitars. Trying to decide, I started staring at my bulletin board wishing there was a pinwheel on it to spin.
I love 3D paper things. Love. And when I saw a little picture of what appeared to be paper balls in a CB2 catalog, I thought, "I am going to make those." So the other day while Alex was writing a paper about mysterious things like polymers and flexible films and tactoids, I made a paper ball. Then I proudly announced I had created a tactoid and it was sitting on my desk.
Tubbypaws latest paper creation is the Keyboard Cat! “All cats can play the keyboard but only some make it to the big time. This is a special papercraft because it can move if you (carefully) turn the little handle. I made this papercraft a while ago but haven’t put it out because I think its very hard to make, so I made a happy papercraft instruction video animation to watch to help anyone who wants to try.” Head to Tubbypaws to download and see the video.
Now that I've got some of the basic kirigami principles down thanks to my new book , I've been experimenting with different shapes. I thought it would be fun to take the traditional person paper cut and change it to a Lego person. Below is a template with instructions on how to make your very own Lego kirigami. Supplies: Yellow paper ( 4" x 11") - light weight Scissors Lego template Right click image, copy, save, and scale to 4 inches in height.
