Since returning from Japan, I have had origami on my mind.
I remember first making things in Elementary School. We did the paper crane project, which I think a lot of schools do even now! We were learning about World War II at the time. There was a story that we had read about a girl who was sick. This was after the atomic bomb had dropped. Her friend had folded her a paper crane. If this sick girl could fold a thousand cranes, she could get a wish from the gods. The most memorable part of the story was that she passed away just shy of a thousand cranes. But, that was the first complicated thing I folded.
Before I even started Elementary School, my sister and I learned to fold loads of things out of the morning newspapers: hats, boats, frogs, airplanes!
The last time I made origami anything was a few Christmases ago. I made little modular boxes in place of wrapping little gifts.
I thought I would venture into this hobby again and make some origami boxes.
So, I went online and found some really great tutorials!

|THIS is my PRIDE AND JOY! It took an A4 sized paper to make (Letter Sized)|
|They are the perfect size for little gifts!|
This is truly a current love!
