Ta – da !

Hi peeps!

A couple of weeks back, I showed you a sneak peak into an Origami project I had undertaken.

Time to show you the almost done kusudama ball. I say “almost” because I am yet to find some elegant beads for the thread ends before it goes on my inspiration board. Or maybe K’s study. His “study-o” can do with some colour.

The fella needs to dry up a bit. But I am so excited. What I love about origami with glue is the opportunity to stick fevicol all over my fingers and then peel it off slowly, one layer at a time,Β occasionallyΒ closing the mouth to avoid drooling. Don’t understand that? Ah, in that case, don’t even try.

The flowers were ready long back.Β So when the omelette soaked in the curry, I finished gluing them together. It does need some patience but as long as you have fevicol to peel off your hands, there is peace.

I probably should have waited until I added the beads. Impatience is not a good trait (not always). But knowing that still doesn’t stop one from showing off with a squeal of delight, does it?

    Lovely. and you are yet to tell me how to make them 😦

    Not bad. How long this this one take to make? The colour combination is also nice. Hope to see many more origami projects, but don’t expect readers like me to replicate any of the above unless it can be done within 5 minutes πŸ˜›

    They are lovely. I like origami too. I learnt it back during one of my school vacations and its fun. Its simple and easy and looks beautiful once done. I made patterns on envelope at that time.
