I recently did some spring cleaning and found this Origami set, that me and Jouls bought during our trip to Japan. I completely forgot that we even bought that. So for today, we decided to do some paperfolding/Origami 🌸. Which is something that we loved doing when we were younger 😁.
But we have to admit that our Origami skills are a bit rusty 😊. Luckily this Origami set comes with instructions. The set contains folding papers with various flag designs, which we thought was pretty cool. We spent a few hours folding these paper cranes, which is called Orizuru in Japanese. The Orizuru is a design that is considered to be the most classic of all Japanese origami 🌸.
The first crane that we tried to make, was a total fail. But after a few tries, our skills improved, and the cranes turned out pretty well.
The Origami paper comes with different flag designs. We kind of wished they had the Norwegian flag as well.
I recently bought this DIY kit, which I think might come in handy, as we are planning on making a scrapbook from our Japan trip.
DIY project no. 2
Here is a peek at one of my DIY projects, which are Danish stars made from gift wrapping strings. I am planning on making 99 of them. But it is taking me forever to finish. But I especially enjoy doing this on days where I am bored and do not feel like going out.
“Have you tried Origami paper-folding before? Or are you into DIY things?“
