Week 14 (Day 02): Love Letter

Origami Love Letter
Francis Ow, the specialist in origami hearts, is the designer of this origami letter. The letter is pretty easy to fold and makes a great gift for Valentine’s day, though I don’t know how easy it will be to fold it back to the original shape, once unfolded! Will require some practise I think.

The heart doesn’t really show till it is locked into place, by inserting it under the triangular tab at the top (refer to the next picture).

I think the letter will look much better if folded from single sided paper, rather than paper with print on both sides. That will bring out the heart much better.

Ring 25

Origami Ring 25

A great addition for a Christmas tree is an origami wreath, so I dug out Tomoko Fuse’s book ‘Origami Rings and Wreaths’ and tried out yet another of her wreaths.

The picture of the Ring 25, made from tracing paper, in the first few pages of the book was great and I wanted to try it out myself. This is the first time I am working with tracing paper and since the paper is quite delicate, I had to take extra care not to tear it off.. But the ring turned out quite fine.

Unfortunately my main failure was in taking the picture of the completed ring. As you can see, this is one of my very bad photographs 😦 I wanted the light in the back and a clear picture showing the variation in the colour, but haven’t even got close to that! Hopefully I will soon learn how to take such pictures.

In the meanwhile, here are the details of the ring and a picture of the ring without the light variation.

Pendant Ornament

Origami Pendant

The origami pendant is a traditional design, which starts from a windmill base. It is quite simple to make and looks best in duo-coloured paper.

A variation to the pendant is to glue the corners of 6 pendants to form a hanging ornament. And since Christmas is fast approaching, I have started my Christmas decorations, starting with this one 🙂
