Crease Lightning

16 Aug

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.

I still have a whole stack of origami papers!
Lovely floral papers

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.

    oh my word! they totally look edible. in fact, when i was looking at this on the reader before coming here, I thought the final shot was food. Crazy. I have never seen anything like it. Just lovely.

      The cake set came with pre-printed papers. There was a metallic silver paper too to make a pair of tongs for the cakes (the tongs are partly seen in the photo). So cute!

        I came back just to see the tongs..lol. Never would have guessed.I think they may have better origami sets in your neck of the woods. Just sayin…I’ve seen and bought a few in my day, and never seen anything like this stuff.
