Ninja Star

This is a traditional origami model  “Ninja Star”- and quite simple to make.  The toughest part of the model is folding the two colors into each other.  You can find the design here: http://www.origami-make.org/origami-ninja-star/page-10.php

I should try something more challenging but it is evening and not my best time to fold.  My concentration is waning.

Quick shout out to WordPress University.  In one of their daily tips, they explained how to search for other origami blogs by going to “Reader” > Search = “origami.”  I really appreciated this tip.

Cicada

Another wonderfully easy model to fold today.  This is a cicada.  It’s great that so many free designs are posted on the web.  I found this traditional design on the website: http://www.origami-resource-center.com/origami-cicada.html.  There are a lot of other easy or intermediate animal designs listed as well.

Perhaps next month, I should challenge myself to fold animals – of course, the easy ones and maybe a few of the intermediate level folds.

Yesterday, WordPress sent me a link to Blogging University https://dailypost.wordpress.com/blogging-university/.  This was a fascinating site and had lots of courses along with free ebooks.  I enrolled in the basic blogging course “Blogging: Fundamentals” – a 14-day course and have already completed the first assignment which was to start my blog.  I wish I had enrolled immediately after creating Myfolds as I stumbled around a lot when I started this blog.
