I, too, was having a hard time reading the pattern on screen, so I printed off a copy of the webpage and blew it up on my copy machine at work. Blew it up, as in magnified it...  not blew it up as in attaching a stick of dynamite to it... Wink

Thanks, piggySTY, for posting the tutorial. I've been wanting to try and make these!

*lol*Office machinery doesn't like me very much at my work, so sometimes a feel it needs a good thumping *glares at photocopier* Grin

Those umbrellas are too cute! I'll definately give them a go, as soon as i find some nice origmai paper. Though inserting the stick things looks a little tricky.

just spend ages making one - the origami was fine - but my fingers and umbrella are a gooey sticky mess from trying to attach a paperclip with strips of paper with a pritt stick - evidently glueing paper to wood is a whole lot easier, im going to wait til i get home and make another one - one that works  Smiley, I'l post pics when it's done - I want one for my doll, druella

are those captions in english? I didn't try blowing it up or anything, but it looks like an asian language to me..

heey guys --- sorry if you're finding the project to be really hard. just look at the diagrams -- you really dont need the directions to help you out ( i have no idea what they say either )  -- but if you're a beginner in origami, you might wanna try some easier projects before you tackle this one. big paper also helps make things easier. good luck! -- if you have any other problems just IM me aim@ p5hd away

I LOVE making those!!!  They are so fun. I found instructions in a book about 6 months ago.  I can still remember how to make them cause they are pretty repetitive... Once you figure it out, it is pretty simple.
