Share Sunday Heart Mini Tea Bag Holder

Happy Valentine Day! The inspiration for today’s project came from my recent adventures of teaching myself at least one new origami fold for each day in 2016. I am helped with a calendar that teaches a new fold every day. I wanted to incorporate an orgami heart in to a project that would have Steeped Tea tea bag samples. This is the project that I came up and I even have included the directions for how to make the heart! The directions was located at http://www.nickrobinson.info/clients/owrigami/diagrams.php

Tutorial Thursday Love is in the Air

Frances Ow has a wonderful site at http://www.nickrobinson.info/clients/owrigami/index.htm that has several diagrams and videos for making a variety of origami hearts. I made this origami heart with Stampin Up Love Blossoms paper which is a beautiful mix of hearts and florals for those you love. This would be a wonderful project to make for the upcoming Valentine Day on February 14. I have included the folding instructions for this project that are also available on Francis Ow’s web site. What do you think?

Tutorial Thursday Transforming Pinwheel

I had so much fun making this origami pinwheel card. The inside of the card has a pocket that can hold a gift card or money that you can give to someone special! This type of card can be made to close horizontally or vertically depending on the embellishments you add to the front of the card. Because of the origami transforming pinwheel as a vertical element, the horizontal fold is the best format for this card. Either way the card is easy and fun to make.

I have included instructions on how to make the transforming origami pinwheel. What do you think of the card?
