Nice job!

Snorlax and Jigglypuff are my favorite... something about sleeping I guess...

This is completely me geeking out - but - you could totally paint those to be warp pipes from Super Mario Cheesy  Awesome!

lol... good idea... or you could use green paper to start.   Wink

It's that time of year again... Back to school... I know some schools have already started and others have a few more weeks.  To help get ready, I thought I'd share these two paper pencil holders.  They actually use these everyday as they hold pens and pencils on my desk. 


This one is my favorite, but it's a little tricky to make.  It's surprisingly stable considering it's just office paper.  I suppose card stock would be better. 


This one is a little wobbly unless you alternate the directions of the pencils it's holding - i.e. they need to criss-cross each other.

If you're interested in making these...

I think they are lovely! Would the simple one be OK for kids to make? I have been trying out some origami with my kids and we have had fun but we do get frustrated easily if we cannot work them out - so would love to try it if it is not tooooo tricky!
Thanks,

It's not too hard, especially with the tutorials on http://www.foldsomething.com (thank god for that site! I'd been trying to do the complex one based on diagrams for nearly a year!). However, the 6 sheet one is really easy and might be best for kids.

Nice job with the lotus flowers.  They look great!  ... and thanks for the plug Smiley  I'm glad you like the site.  I recently (first two weeks in July) finished making a bunch of revisions - new theme, added features, re-organization.  Hope you still like the site Wink

Thanks for all the kind words and comments, everyone. 

I don't know how you managed to make them - so teeny. Very impressive!
- patience, desk lamp, patience, paper cutter, patience, and tweezers... and patience.   Grin

I used to challenge myself to make really tiny origami out of things like gum wrappers when I was a kid.  When I saw this competition, I figured I'd see what I could turn out now that I'm older and have fat hands.  

I started by making a traditional crane.


That was fun... but I figured it was kinda plain and the competition on craftster would be pretty fierce so I made this little frog on a lotus flower.


I was a little disappointed with how the frog and lotus turned out, but it was a lot of work so I didn't want to leave them out... at the same time, I wanted something a little more hard hitting so I came up with this insect diorama.

These are great!  I never have enough bookmarks, 'cause I lose them or leave them in books.  I usually fold a dozen or so at a time.  Now I have some new ideas to try.   Cheesy

My wife has put all but one of the book marks in the pics to use already... lol.  I think I'll make more of the small ones for her this weekend.

Here's another tut for making origami hearts.  It's not as simple as zombiekilla's, but it doesn't use scissors and has a little stand in the back to prop it up.  

I loooove making origami hearts! I make them for everything, they are just fun to tuck into things! I like to write little notes on them and leave them places. here is a tute I made a while back: http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/origami_hearts
