Origami Box I came across a tutorial for this origami box yesterday and couldn’t resist folding it immediately!

It also has a lid which closes down very tightly.

Free Origami Instructions : Holiday Folds: page corner bookmarks This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks. Placeholders special enough for the books that are special enough to remain in your culled-out-of-spacial-necessity collection. Page corner bookmarks are cute, practical and deeply under-represented in the world.* They’re easy to make, easy to customize, and will set you apart from all those same-same flat rectangular bookmarks.

Tie Dye Window Decorations We’ve been having a lot of rainy weather around here and the kids have been stuck inside for over a week now. The other day, the five-year-old and I stumbled upon an easy activity that kept him busy for over an hour. OVER AN HOUR, PEOPLE!

-Diagrams — Page 2 A Christmas and holiday greeting to you, your families, friends, and loved ones. Today is the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere! From one of my south-facing windows, I can see the sun following its lowest and shortest arc across the sky. Five Pointed Origami Star I love that this star is neatly finished and attractive on both front and back. Update: March 2013. It has recently come to my attention that this design should be credited to Tomoko Fuse. I haven't been able to find it in a published work--can anyone confirm this? The secret? Start with a pentagon shaped piece of paper, not a square.

Paper Flowers Here’s a lovely assortment of paper flowers to make, I’ve organized them in a few sections for easier browsing: Bouquets & Centerpieces, Tissue Paper, Crepe, Origami and the rest under general tutorials. Many of these have free templates to download and most are surprisingly easy to make! I’ve also compiled a vintage booklet into a pdf tutorial that you can download. Envelope Origami 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. Origamii Here, I’ll show you how to make an origami heart out of a dollar. There are many different patterns out there and this one is sometimes called change of heart. You’ll need a dollar bill or any U.S. paper currency. For this video however I’m going to be using a piece of paper approximately twice the size of a dollar so you can see what's going on more clearly. I want the pink side of this paper to show so I’m going to start by flipping it over.
