I knew I wanted to make something special for Amy's wedding and I wanted something that had dramatic effect so when I saw this idea I knew it would be perfect for a) my busy hands at night and b) my lifelong wish to learn how to origami
It took me 2 months of constantly making them every night, I started at 5 minutes to make one and near the end I was making them in 1 minute 15 seconds
I tippedthe box of 1000 out on the table and was going to throw them in the air just cos but then I remembered I had to sort them out uhh wasn't looking forward to that at all
Love all the spectrum of colours and how delicate they look!
Chinese takeaway containers holding Japanese origiami..why not!
The first string I made and this was more annoying than making the 1000! I pushed them together for the photo but will space them out when I am gluing them. I need to make about 33 of these and hang them off a branch so I can make a backdrop for a wall. I'll post a photo from the wedding, now I've to find somewhere safe to store them!
