I did a post earlier on how much I love the japanese art of paper folding or origami : Intricacies Of Origami. Please check it out. There are some photos of origami models which I have attempted to fold.
I love modular origami, certain number of papers folded exactly the same way and piece together to make a complete model. Like the Bascetta Star or Floral Kusudama in my earlier post. Yes, these used up a lot of paper. But the end result is so beautiful.
I hardly have time to sit and fold papers these days. But yesterday I tried again. Wow! I can still remember how to fold a Hexagon Box!
That is an example of simple modular origami, using pieces of paper. Models like The Bascetta Star will require about 30 pieces or thereabouts.
The papers are from Daiso, the everything at $2 store.
What better way to infuse my love for food and cooking into origami? Well, Origami Desserts!
These are a little tricky to fold, partly because half the time I was trying to make sense of the diagrams (which are in Japanese). Chocolate cake, strawberry cake, cream puff, truffle. Looks so good, I’m salivating.
