This one is for Karen, who gave me a whole big beautiful bunch of origami cranes for Will's baby shower. I have been meaning to display them, and found this great idea on this blog. A Lampshade! OK - maybe I will not put a light bulb in, but still they look cool in a clump - like a pinata. Actually, the other thing I thought of last week was to find a nice branch, spray paint it some fun colour, mount it on the wall so it seems to be growing out of it, and hang them all from the branch. I may try that.
These great lamps are from Tas-Ka. They also come in white and black.
Also for Karen, is this super cool website, Origami Club. They have a million origami designs for some crazy cute stuff, like the whale below.
Or how about a grasshopper?
Or a chicken?
I would love to make these but will never find the time, so it is all on you Karen.
