I completed both of these months ago but only got relatively good pictures recently. The first is a modular origami star made using instructions from "the origami handbook." It is 30 squares of paper and the finished star measures under three inches in diameter (from point to point). I made another one of these using different paper but the photo didn't come out.



The second project is 1000 cranes. I worked on them whenever I had some free time, always carrying squares of paper in my purse. I got some strange looks since I was folding them in class, while talking to people, in the car, etc. as if it was just a normal thing to be doing. They are a few different sizes and I wish I had made them all the same but oh well. I had cut the paper from bigger sheets and ended up with strips on the end that were thinner but didn't want to waste them so I used them anyways.
The largest cranes measure about 3/4 of an inch high with wings folded up. The smallest around 3/8 of an inch.

I love origami...but I'm not sure I'd ever have the patience to fold 1000 cranes.

Great job.

Thanks!

I'm not sure how I had the patience to do this... I usually give up on large projects pretty quickly.
