Some time last year I ended up getting this origami bugs book because well, I've always wanted to learn how to do it! For some reason, by the cover of the book, I thought maybe this was a children's origami book... but no. It's not! Not at all. This package comes with 2 small books inside (20 bug projects) and almost 100 sheets of coloured paper. When I was looking at this, I also found an origami flowers and origami dinosaurs. It was really hard to pick between the three books, but I picked this one because I thought it would be the easiest.
I started off with the first bug in book one, a simple butterfly. Not. I tried twice and failed. I thought the books would go from easiest to hardest but it's just random.
The first successful origami (and probably easiest) bug was the firefly, It was very simple and yes, I was super proud of myself. I could make so many of these but they're not that pretty...
The next one I tried was the tree snail. This blue snail was my second attempt. I think it's pretty cute but it can't sit up on it's own. It's top heavy and I don't know if that's my fault or if it's supposed to be like that? It's probably my fault.
The most recent origami bug I've tried was the emiko's fritillary, which just looks like a normal butterfly to me. This one had the most steps and it took me a long time to finish it.
So that's all the origami bugs I've done so far. It's pretty fun to do these, especially late at night while you watch reruns of Roseanne. I'm hoping to get a few more done, in my spare time and eventually finish the books.
Has anyone done any origami? What's your favourite?
P.S. I'm going to try the caterpillar one next. Wish me luck.
