Origami Diversion

Sometimes I need to do something different. It refreshes me to use my mind in a different way! Then, when they're done, they make nice little gifts for friends.

Doing origami also reminds me of my "little" brother (which I persist in calling him despite the fact that he's at least 6" taller than me), who has been an origami expert for years.

  1. These are really cool. Is it hard to do? I've always been intimidated to try because it looks impossible to do.

  2. LMB--thanks! They're not all hard; I'd start with something easy like the cranes. Here's a really great instructional website on the crane:
    The parrot is a bit harder; others are in between. Give it a try! It's fun!
