I've got plenty of origami paper.. but I want to do something creative with it. I used to be a bigger origami...uh...do-er. (What do you call someone who does origami? A folder? A origamer?) I have some super cute animal print paper (like, it looks like giraffe and zebra and some other animals' skin. It's not really, though.) What should I do?

early to bed and early to rise, and you'll meet few of our best people.

you can make paper beads with them, cover journals, cover art mats, cover wooden or other hideous beads, see these (http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/ah_antique_jewelry/article/0,,HGTV_3088_1370456,00.html), cover a box, make envelopes, etc, etc.

A great use for origami paper is the technique of Iris Folding in cards. www.irisfolding.circleofcrafters.com

Some pretty neat stuff at this site, check out their gallery for more ideas. I think they also have a section called tea bag folding which could be cute with origami paper but I'm not too familiar with it.

Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don't kill their husbands, they just don't.
