    this is so lame.

    I just HAD to buy a package of origami paper whilst I was at work yesterday, and since then, I've gone origami happy.... I've made a bunch of paper cranes that I've mobiled together, a zillion origami boxes.... yikes... this is such a weird obsession, I'm totally hooked.

    It's amazing what you can create with paper.

    I know! It's so cool!

    Once I finish making a box out of each colour in the pack, I'm moving on to make animals... there are instructions on how to make cicadas and goldfish....

    My mom loves cicadas, I'm going to fill a box of those for her.

    A couple years ago I went totally origami crazy. I now have boxes and boxes of things that I made. Not sure what I'm ever going to do with them. Maybe I should decorate my apartment.

    origami.......

    have you ever used tinfoil to make origami critters? they look really pretty, but it's hard to do it without tearing the foil.

    I learned how to make stars. I have to say, its very addictive and therapeutic in a sense. Clears the head up.

    my 3rd semester of college i went home with a friend one weekend. she took me to her friends house, but only her lil bro was there. my friend was like "show her the origami you make...show her." so he went and got a little square piece of purple paper and made me the smallest origami swan/bird i'd ever seen. i'll keep it forever.
    i never got into origami myself, but i think i might check it out. i have lots of paper that i can't bring myself to throw out. (i save computer paper that's only used on one side.)

    fifth grade the teacher wanted me to figure out how to make origami boxes so i could teach the class..

    thats when it started.. i'd make boxes out of scrap paper, my homework, other kids homework, notes to my parents.
    i made boxes out of the biggest paper i could find .. and tiny boxes that i'd have to sharpen my pencil, just so i could use the point to help me fold it all
