Interesting paper crafts on display

I read (and thoroughly enjoyed) ToneToEdo’s recent post about everyday uses for origami. It's something I’d really like to be more proficient at myself - I can do super basic stuff, but anything more involved and I’m usually like “wait - hold up - what part did I miss and what part do I need to be folding right now?”

I think my own lack of skill when it comes to handicrafts gives me all the more appreciation when people can make these cool creations. These were some paper crafts I saw recently at my daughter’s school.

There’s an owl, a daruma, and a whole bunch of other folded paper creations by one of the classrooms. I’m guessing one of the teachers made them, but I thought they were such a fun display! Would love to know how to make them myself - got to see if I can find a beginner level tutorial online!



After spending the last several years in the beating heart of Tokyo, I will be spending the next three in the countryside of Japan. I adore this country and all it has to offer - and I'm always learning more and more about life here as I go along!
