Happy Thursday, artists (or if you’re more like me, wanna be artists).
Art on Paper closes for entry soon, and one of the types of art I feel the show always lacks in submissions is origami art, which is funny because back in grade school that was really the only art I was good at (that and making those weird S shape drawings in the margins of my textbooks).
In honor of Art on Paper (and my love of paper cranes) here are 5 origami tutorials you can do at your desk:
1. A very easy (and pretty) butterfly.
Make a bunch of these and take them around your desk to beautify your space a little!
2. A simple boat.
Leave this one in the office kitchen to brighten someone else’s day.
3. A mouse (yes, the instructions are in Japanese)
Paper folding is a universal language.
4. A winter rose.
It’s a little complicated, but think about how pretty this will make your desk; you could even build yourself a bouquet ❤
5. The classic paper crane.
Nothing can replace the OG.
Hope this relived some stress, calmed those midday coffee jitters, and generally made your day at the office a little better. Don’t forget to enter Art on Paper before January 16, and happy crafting!
