Darcelle Dumont favorite origami, May 13th , 2018. Origami, like other art forms, has many styles. The more common ones include: 1. Realistic: Creations that exhibit the main features of the subject, often resulting in complex designs with many steps. 2. Minimal: Creations that capture the essence of the subject with minimal folds and with an emphasis on simplicity. 3. Modular: Multiple geometric "units" made from multiple sheets of paper whose flaps and pockets tuck into each other to form polygons or polyhedra. Typically, all sheets are folded in the same way or in a small number of ways. 4. Composite: As with modular origami, multiple sheets of paper are used, but in this style each sheet is folded differently to realize a different part of the subject. Composite origami was one of the most common styles in the 1950s and ‘60s but is relatively uncommon today. 5. Practical: Models that have a real–life application, such as for use as envelopes, boxes, cups, dishes, etc. 6. Pureland: A concept suggested by John Smith of England, who proposed a composition system using only square paper and "mountain" and "valley" folds, resulting in models that are easy to duplicate. 7. Tessellations: A geometric folding technique in which the image is created by the pattern of folded edges across the paper. Tessellations are often periodic (repeating) and may be flat or three–dimensional, and many of them exhibit further structure when held up to the light. Not surprisingly, many of the leading practitioners of this technique have been mathematicians. 8. Wet folding: A technique invented by Akira Yoshizawa in which the paper contains a water–soluble glue (known as sizing) and is dampened slightly before folding. The dampness permits the paper to be folded into soft curves, which then harden in durability as the paper dries. 9. Crumpled: A technique created by Paul Jackson and developed by Vincent Floderer that involves the crumpling of the paper before folding. This technique can produce highly realistic organic forms.

You can make just the head and then stick it on a card and draw the rest, creating a wonderful tulip collage – perfect for mother’s day. The stems are still easy, but I would say a "next step" for a child, who is a little bit more confident in the basics of origami!

Georgitte Georgitte galleries, May 13th , 2018. THE CRANE. Perhaps the most well known origami model is the crane. It has become the international symbol of peace. In Japan every child eventually learns to make the crane. Eleanor Coerr is credited with popularizing the crane with her book, "Sadako and 1,000 Paper Cranes". This book, which is widely available, tells the story of a young girl who was exposed to the radiation from the atomic bomb that the U.S., dropped which helped to end World War Two. Several years later she develops leukemia. Her friend visits her in the hospital with an origami crane. She tells Sakako that the crane is a symbol of health and that if Sadako can make 1,000 cranes she will be well. Her friend proceeds to teach her to make the crane: it isn‘t easy but when Sadako masters it, she begins her quest to make 999 more. She is resolved to be brave and making the cranes takes her mind off her illness. As she attracts the attention of the hospital staff and other visitors, they provide her with x-ray foil wrappers, magazines and other papers for her project. As other patients show interest, she stops folding and teaches them to make the cranes too.
Georgitte Georgitte step by step, May 13th , 2018. Now keep in mind that part of the magic of origami, and what makes it so good for the mind, is the challenge of having to transform just a sheet of paper and a diagram into a three dimensional model. And if you have not seen many of these diagrams before, they may take some time to get used to.

Georgitte Georgitte step by step, May 15th , 2018. Decorate your own beautiful, bejewelled Faberge egg! This craft can be adapted to suit a range of ages. Younger children can just "pile" it all on. Older kids might like to sketch out a careful design
Odila Morel step by step, May 16th , 2018. You can do these with any kind of paper although I really, really recommend you use origami paper and you can even get a patterned origami paper which is beyond adorable!
Hilaire Michel galleries, May 15th , 2018. Actually, ALL origami is decorative, including MANY of the lovely ideas above, but I had to somehow group these sections to make browsing easier…. Maybe I should have done it by Origami season!!!
Hilaire Michel favorite origami, May 16th , 2018. These pencil holders from Gathering Beauty are a perfect project for origami newbies. They‘re super easy to put together with a few folds and a dab or two of glue.
