I’ve gone a bit origami mad lately. Since starting my snail mail group I’ve been searching for ideas for unique, pretty little items to add to my packages. My first thought was origami paper cranes however during my online search I came across these cute little mushrooms. I am now hooked. I stayed up on Saturday night making heaps of them – as you do.
Anyway my mind is now racing with other ways to use these little cuties. I am part of an online collage club as you may know and this month’s theme is ‘Enchanted Forest’. I’ve been struggling a bit with this theme but now I know exactly what I’m going to do and these little mushrooms are going to be pretty central to my collage idea. My youngest has already taken a handful to use in her indoor fairy garden. Yes we have an indoor and many outdoor fairy gardens.
If you’d like to make some too there is a great tutorial here. This is the best, easiest to follow origami website I’ve found. There is something quite therapeutic about origami. I am now adding this to my ever growing crafty therapy list. Let me know if you make some or if you have another favourite origami. I’m keen to try more.
