Hello Birdie!

Thursday, May 28th, 2015

Here’s a great idea for making a mobile for a baby’s room … study … or … anywhere. Using Chiyogami paper we folded these birds from the Robin pattern in Florence Sakade’s book ORIGAMI – JAPANESE PAPER FOLDING.

Using waxed linen thread we strung the birds together.

Not wanting to perform a “balancing act” we simply hung the winged ones from a KIKKERLAND PHOTO MOBLIE.

January Origami Anyone?

Saturday, January 7th, 2012

Well hello January! Aren’t you cold and dreary.

I’m sure I’m not the only one dreaming of a beach right now. My plan to battle this grey January is a big cup of tea and a little taste of the beach in the shape of this origami mobile. You could make a mobile using a variety of origami patterns but my thoughts are sea side and these sailboats were just too cute.

I really didn’t need much to get started on this project.

 

I chose to work with Chiyogami paper because it folds so nicely and there are so many patterns to choose from.

After finding a basic pattern I used a glue stick to adhere two boats together. This created a three dimensional boat to hang down from my frame.

I used a needle to thread some waxed linen through the centre of the boats and hung them from bamboo sticks. That was it!

 With a little persistence it all balanced to create my mobile!
