I love Origami so, I thought I would show off a little by showing you all some pieces I have created.

1st: Blue table centre piece created for a 7th birthday party. Complete with a humming bird drinking from one of the flowers.
2nd: The same but in pink.
3rd: Humming bird drinking fro a flower made for a paper wedding anniversary.
4th: My latest piece made for a 21st birthday party. Apparently it's going to be the backdrop for a cake or something. I'm not really sure. Took me bloody ages though.

they are amazing how long did the others take to make?

Dicky T 19-08-2009 01:48 AM

Thank you very much.

I think I worked it out for the first two. I timed myself to make one flower. It worked out to be around 4 hours per piece if I worked non-stop. Which obviously I didn't, and there were complecations and such.
The 21 took me much much longer. I spent several sleepless nights working on it.
The flower with the humming bird only took around 30 minutes without the box I made for it, but it looks nice all the same.

I currently working on a bunch of stuff for a charity event. I shall post some pictures when I have it all finished.

I can make those flowers, kind of, but nothing near as good as these!

Goodness me, that's impressive!

I posted some of my stuff in the picture board, but http://www.recoveryourlife.com/forum...&postcount=599 I'll post it here too.
I really need to buy some more origami paper.

Not nearly enough! :-P

And yes, that is a pretty common flower, but it's very effective. One of my favourites.

I very rarely use origami paper to be honest. It's never the size you want it in, generally coloured on one side, and expencive.
Just find some colours printer paper. I find that works best.
