Mini Origami Books Tutorial

Mini Origami Books Tutorial
A few people have requested a tutorial on the mini origami book that I posted about a few months ago. Here is my new video tutorial for the books, it is a little simpler, but if you prefer a photo tutorial, keep scrolling To view the tutorial, click on the first image, it should enlarge. You can use the arrows on the left to navigate. To exit the image, click on the white space around the images. I used 6×6 inch paper to start with. 1 piece of 6×6 inch colour paper for the cover, 4 peices of white for the pages. Fold one of the white squares in half. Cut the square in half using the last crease… Align one of the half’s onto the other squares, and cut the whole lot at once… or you could do one by one. A bunch of halfs! Fold a half in half again Fold it again And twice more, so it looks liek a spikey number 3, or a W. Do all 7 pieces. An easy mistake, make sure you don’t join them like this. Join them so that the right hand one over laps the left. They are all joined. You should have this. Unfold.

Toyota recall: Prius, Corolla models affected by recall HONG KONG (CNNMoney) -- Toyota Motors said Wednesday it was recalling 2.77 million cars worldwide, its second major recall in as many months. The recall mainly covers certain Prius models and was prompted by a problem with the steering intermediate extension shafts, which can suffer damage if sharp turns are made at slow speeds. A second problem with electric-powered motor pumps affected some 630,000 vehicles, the company said. The automaker said 670,000 of the recalled cars were sold in the United States. An additional 1.5 million vehicles were being recalled in Japan, along with 496,000 in Europe. A spokesman for the company in Tokyo said the recalled Prius cars were of the model's second generation. Wednesday's recall is the latest embarrassment for Toyota, which last month announced a recall of 7.43 million cars due to a power window problem that posed a fire risk. That recall was the largest issued by an automaker in years.
