I've often watched Origami experts ply their craft and wondered how they do it all so perfectly. I love how the edges of the paper are so sharp, yet flowers, birds, animals - all sorts of things emerge in full rounded three dimensional glory.
Here are a couple of tutorial clips I found on YouTube by the very talented jonakashima. Complete with paper sounds, these little vids will give you some skills to impress yourself - and maybe even your family.
I'm going to start with the Magic Rose Cube and see how I go from there! Perhaps you can get the kids to watch and give it a go if they have a spare moment. Perhaps it might be a new skill for you to fall in love with!
I hope you enjoy :0)
And finally one that is close to so many of our hearts ;0)
