Origami Fun -- a Crafty Weekends Review & Link Party

Disclosure: I was sent these origami paper sets in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. 

Here is my long over due craft review. I now have a new computer but was able to get my photos back!! In the spring my math club group asked for a lesson involving origami. I pulled out some lessons that talk about geometry while making origami stars. I however forgot to take photos of the girls' projects. So I came home and made some more. 

We used six different packages of origami paper and then I made some other projects with Rainbow Patterns

One of our first projects was a changing ninja star. Each of these projects can transform to the other shape. These were made with the smaller (4-inch) vibrant colors

To make the transforming ninja star you can check out this tutorial from YouTube.

Next we made some eight pointed stars. The first ones require glue to keep them together. You can see a tutorial here. I used the Dog Patterns for the first one.

For the next one I used the Nature Patterns

Next we made another eight point star like the one I made using Geometric Origami.  I made one with the Cat Patterns paper. 

I also made this one from the Kaleidoscope paper. I love how it turned out!!

This star is done with the Kimono Pattern Paper. 

Finally I used the Rainbow Paper and tried some fun origami ideas I found in books at our local library.

 I love how this puzzle box came out. What do you think? Below are a duck, windmill and wreath.

So those are a few of the origami projects I have been making and some I did with my math club girls.  Now let's get this party started!

Let's party!! It was a small party (after all it is summer), so there are only a few!!
