Make an origami cat bookmark

Make an origami cat bookmark
On You Tube I found video instructions for making a cat bookmark designed by Jo Nakashima. So I tried it out. A couple of the steps were tricky, but I managed to prevail! I think this kitty is funny. He looks like he tried to cross the road at the wrong moment.

The fox is blak Netflix Instant Watch has to be one of the best things technology has gifted us. You can find so many new movies and television shows from so many different genres, any time that you want. One of the best parts for me is the documentary selection, which is surprisingly large and full of very interesting features. One PBS gem I watched recently was a documentary called Between the Folds about origami artists. The film spans the world and artistic medias to showcase what origami has become.

Window Star tutorial I made some Waldorf-style window stars to decorate our big living room windows. I like to put them up in the winter, to liven up the wintry view. They are a bit fiddly, but satisfying to crank out, not unlike cut paper snowflakes. The best paper to use is square kite paper (ETA- it's 6 1/4" square.) I bought mine at a Waldorf school store, but you could get some from Nova Natural. Actually, my son Julian, who is 7, made the green one, I was pleasently suprised he stuck with all the steps! Use the white paper as a work surface, it's easier to see what you are doing. Then fold it in half and crease well. Then fold the pieces each in half crosswise and cut. Next, open them out so you have a rectangle with a crease running down the center. See my not-quite tidy edge? Now on one end only, fold in the sides to meet at the middle. So after you've done that with all eight pieces, you will have this: Now put a small glob of glue on the corner of your white paper. That's it!
