71  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Latest Crochet: Darth Vader, Cthulu, Pass the Pigs, a cupcake, and some popcorn on: December 19, 2008 04:46:09 PM
Would you adopt me and make me crochety gifts?   These are amazing!  I love the Darth with removable helmet!
72  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / origami ornaments on: December 19, 2008 03:56:30 PM
Here are a few ornaments that I made.  I call them ornaments, but you can hang them as decorations any time of year. 

You can't talk about origami with out bringing up these things...  I made the hook with a paper clip.  If you're interested in learning how to make a paper crane, you can go here


The red & white ring and the blue & white 8 point star are actually the same fold (they can transform!)  *I just posted a video of how to make the 8 point stars on my website*


Paper balloons of various sizes...  It was tricky installing the paperclip loop on these... they're so delicate. 


Here are some peace doves... maybe I could hot glue an olive branch into their beaks.  You can learn how to make these here

I am absolutely blown away... soft cuddly pies that keep your head warm.  100 points for creativity and 100 points for execution.  They look great!

That is the greatest and best mushroom in the world!  I lurve the gills!  It reminds me of my very first crocheting...


I made this hat for my one of my nieces.  Her name is Isabella, so of course we started calling her Portabella.

hmmm... I know how to make a few different origami flowers... but nothing that opens when you squeeze it...  I did just post this lotus flower to the forum. 

There's a bit of space in the center for you to place objects; however, it doesn't really close and open.  If you like it, there is an instructional video on my blog.  Depending on the size of the object you want to place in the flower, you might need to start with larger sheets of paper.
78  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Lotus flower boxen on: December 15, 2008 03:34:16 PM
Here's an origami box that I made out of two different sheets of 12x12 inch scrapbook paper... after all was said and folded, the box was 6x3x3 inches. 


Then I made a little origami lotus flower out of six different sheets of 4x7 origami paper (I had to cut a square sheet).


Then I figured... why not stick the flower on the box... I had to reinforce the lid from behind with a piece of card stock, and I used a yellow pipe cleaner as a twist-tie to secure the flower to the lid.  This made the lid a little heavy so I used a piece of clear packing tape to secure the lid to the box bottom (usually the lid slides under flaps on the box, and that's good enough to hold them together). 


Here's the box when opened.  You can see the piece of card stock as reinforcement (do I get points for trying to match the color of the card stock to the colors of the box?). 

It's hard to see in the picture, but I put some foam-like "premium densified batting," into the bottom of the box to give it a little more structural support.  This would make a nice little keep-sake chest or a good gift box (one of my fiance's Christmas presents is inside it as I write this). 

Patterns for the lotus and the boxen here.

Thanks for your time.

I was talking to a friend about my origami website, and he was telling me about this commercial.  I don't watch too much television, so I haven't seen it.  If you find it online, let me know.  I'd like to view it and maybe embed it in my website.

 Shocked holy cow that's cool... I've never done anything like this, so pardon my ignorance... but don't you have to carve a mirror image into the press?
