Level: Very Easy

Step 1.

Place your paper pattern side up.

Please excuse all of the folds, I’m reusing a sheet of origami paper I’ve already transformed into a shirt! (I’m running out of paper!)

Step 2.

Fold a small section of the paper over. About half an inch, depending on what he size of your paper is.

Step 3.

Flip your paper over. Then, take a section of the two edges and fold them over.

Step 4.

Take the ends of your paper and fold then inward. Make sure they’re evenly spaced before permanently creasing them.

Step 5.

Fold the two corers in the center of the rectangle outward. These will make the sleeves.

Step 6.

Now fold the whole rectangle in half, so the sleeves are touching the “collar”.

Step 7.

Last step! All you have to do now is tuck the end underneath the collar!

This “T-shirt” is really easy, and it doesn’t use that many folds! Therefore, after folding it, you can unfold your shirt, write a note on the inside, re-fold it, and pass it on to a friend!

Double Cute!

Hello everyone! Today, I’ll be starting off a brand new, semi-weekly series of posts called Origami 101! :^D

Now, I originally posted another tutorial last week, but somehow, it got deleted, and is totally erased from the internet! (*GRRAAAA!!!!* <- Me, screaming at the computer in frustration.) So, let’s keep the introduction brief for today, and just jump right into the tutorial!

Level: Easy

Step 1.

Place of your paper color side down, then fold in half triangularly.

Step 4.

This part’s tricky to explain so watch the slide closely. Grab the two ends between your fingers and fold in half.

Step 5.

Fold one of the right ends over.

Step 6.

Open the fold, then flatten it. This will create the face.

Step 8.

Flip your paper back to the front, and fold the left corner over. This will make the tale and keep your fox upright.

Step 9.

Last step! Take a black marker and add the eyes, nose, and little feet!

Naturally, because it’s winter, I gave this little fox an even tinier fox in his winter coat!

New Year’s Resolutions!

Happy New Year’s everybody! Only a couple more hours until 2016, and only a couple hours left of 2015! Aren’t you excited? Cause I am!  The new year will be representing the third year of this little blogs existence, so YAY!

 Now, to be honest, I’ve been a little  extremely lazy with this blog last year, and I’m really sorry that I haven’t been as attentive as I should have. For my new year’s resolution, I promise to spend a lot more time posting, instead of fermenting into a couch potato. ;^)

Along with the new year, there are going to be a couple major changes around this place. All will be revealed in time,  but until then…
