Friday Inspiration

It's probably not a shock to anyone that this Friday's inspiration has to do with... paper! (Hey, at least it's not washi tape, right?) This time, instead of cutting and gluing, I'm folding it. That's right folks, it's origami time!

I'm no expert when it comes to folding paper, in fact, I only know how to make a few things. Paper cranes are my speciality. I used to fold them everywhere if I could just find a piece of paper and a table to fold it on (and even the table was optional). I've tried to get out of that habit now, but I still sometimes end up making a few.

When I was looking for pictures for this post, I didn't realize how complex origami can get. And these are the more simple ones still...

Quite the leap from what I would think when someone says "paper plane"...

Oh my... I want to learn how to make this!

Have you tried origami? Do you have a specific thing you can make really well?
