Making Origami For the First Time
On Monday I did something I haven’t done before: I made some (7) origami things, birds and land animals. I made them by following instructions on a great website that’s all about origami, and it has some videos. I’ll include the link to that website at the end of this post.
This was a fun and new experience for me, to make something I haven’t made before, taking a piece of paper and turning it into something that looks like a bird or land animal. Following the steps and instructions and watching some of the available videos really helped me out.
I am a beginner at this so there will likely be some error in how I made at least some of the things, I have a lot to learn and much practicing to do before I make any of those again without looking the instructions, but it’s something that caught my interest so I will keep doing this.
Below I share with you a picture of the 7 finished origami things I made and a note on what it is and what I used to make it.
1. Flapping Bird [3in.X3in. Post-it note]
2. Swan [3in.X3in. white paper]
3. Crow [6in.X6in. white paper]
4. Dinosaur [3in.X3in. white paper, black pen]
5. Chick (Easy) [3in.X3in. white paper, black pen]
6. Chick [3in.X3in. white paper, black pen]
7. Cat [2 6in.X6in. white papers, black pen]
I’ll make more origami things and share the pictures here in a new post sooner or later. I’ll make things different from those I already made and see how it goes.
Do you know how to make origami? If you can share some of your work here somehow or comment what you think about origami or why you like it or not.
