For the entire month of May, we will be folding flowers to celebrate spring! We will be making cute origami tulips and stems this Friday, May 7th, at 2 pm MST. To make one flower, you will need a sheet of 3" square paper for the tulip, a sheet of 2" x 6" paper for the stem, a sheet of 2" x 3" for the leaf, a thin bamboo skewer, and white glue. Have several flower components ready to make a cute flower arrangement!
See you Friday, May 7th, at 2 pm MST!
A crown represents power, glory, and royalty and is often made from precious metals and decorated with jewels.
Crowns often designate a ruler in many civilizations around the world.
The paper crown traces back to the ancient Romans, who wore festive headgear to celebrate Saturnalia, a festival around the winter solstice. In Great Britain, paper crowns are a tradition and worn at Christmas time. Wearing a crown makes us feel special, and sometimes we need to feel special!
For this Friday's class, we are going to fold an origami crown. Made from several sheets of paper joined together, and it's effortless to make!
To make an adult-sized paper crown, you will need nine or ten sheets of 6" square origami paper in any color or multiple colors or patterns. Gold or silver paper will make it look more regal, and colored paper will make it more festive and fun!
The Live Class starts at 2 pm MST Friday, 4/23!
