Hey all!  It's been a while since I posted up some new projects (school, work, and a new boy all take up time! Roll Eyes), but here's something that's been around for a while.  I just got a chance to photograph them today! 

They are modular origami, made by folding 6 of the side pieces, and 8 of the "fastening" pieces.  They are super simple once you learn how to do them, and they look so pretty hung up!  I also handmade most of the tassels. Grin



my favorite!  And the hardest to fold because the blue paper was really slick on one side.  Getting the different sides to interlock was a pain.



one of the biggest that i've ever done.



all together (they're hanging in the kitchen as a funky kind of curtain)!





 

some more close ups. Smiley



one of the smallest i've done!  I might make some into earrings, but i'm not sure if they would look good.



size reference (that's a Canadian dime).

sorry if some of the pictures are blurry and big...they were hard to photograph, and i'm supposed to be doing a paper, so I don't have time to resize them!

I made diagrams not of these, but of something similar.

I learned from a kit I bought.  I can try to make a video of them.  All of mine don't have glue in them. Smiley  They can stay together without glue, but we just added some so that they would still stay on the string when we strung them up! Cheesy
