Paper Flowers and Paper Cranes
Just after the holidays I usually feel a bit restless and on Christmas day I was scrolling through one of my favourite decoration blogs when I found a post called Pyssla en pappersblomma. English translation: Fold a paper flower. In the post there was a link to this little video on how to fold beautiful paper flowers. After watching the video I folded some flowers out of patterned paper and once you learned how to do it it was really easy and fun!
Afterwards I also decided to fold a paper crane which was a bit more difficult but after watching this tutorial it suddenly became feasible. Origami has been really popular in Sweden for a while but I've always thought it was too difficult for some reason, so I never tried it. As you know I'm very fond of flowers and birds, so now I can't wait to find some more patterned paper and perhaps some newspaper so I can fold a whole little collection of cranes and flowers to decorate my apartment with. Let the folding begin! :)
