A sasanqua flower folded from a 15×15 square piece of paper. This was harder to fold than the little crane made by a 6×6mm paper, but easier to photograph.

For a better idea of scale

    Excellent capture my friend! Lovely folded flower! If it is color paper you can do a Selective color then the composition would be more active! Lovely texture on your fingers! You have a lot of patience for detail works!

  • Thanks my friend. It isn’t perfect, but neither are real flowers :P

    this is exquisite Mui-Ling
    what patience you have
    do you have a special display for them? i think that
    they would look beautiful on glass or mirrored glass so you can see them from all angles
    :)

  • That a good idea Karin. Sadly enough I only have containers to store these. I have done a lot of craft throuhout my life that my dad gets annoyed at me being a pack rat and tells me to get rid of some of my stuff. I once had a sailboat I made during high school, and I kept it in the family room. Then I began university and studied in another town. When first year was over, I noticed the boat was not in the family room anymore. When I asked my dad where it was, he was like “I don’t know”; I think he threw it away :( If I could afford the extra storage I wouldn’t have to worry about what would happen to the things I made and the paintings I paint…

    I am a huge fan of origami and I have tried mini origami, but never anything that small. Simply amazing!

  • Thank you Rowan. I haven’t mentioned it in this description because I’ve stated it im my other mini origami shots, but I used tweezers while folding. Maybe not so much in “Born from the hand” as that crane wasn’t that small, though the smallest crane I barely touched with my fingers at all.

    That’s amazing!
    An art like this, has to be appreciated. I have things that my kids made for me since they were 3-4 yrs. old. Treasures.
    But, like Karin said, men they are different in that way.

  • Thanks Gail. But atleast there are some kind gentlemen on RB who leave nice comments on my origami.

    I had to use tweezers to finish one about the size of “Born from the Hand”. There is no shame in that , I guess. Happy folding!
