The End of Summer Update!

Hi everyone!

I couldn't wait any longer. It's been TOO LONG.
I had to say hi to my readers and let everyone know that I'm still alive!!

I've had a wonderful summer.  Since I'm learning so many new things, I don't think I will ever run out of things to share. It makes my day when someone I've never met " like" or "+1" on my posts especially when I in return visit their site and find interesting things or something in common!!

Some of you might have seen this already, but this is what I chose to make for this month.

Instruction below:
http://www.origami-instructions.com/origami-modular-tricorne.html




I fist made one tricone. It was easy enough. Then I made second, then third. L-chan joined, and wanted me to make three more so when put points together to make a hexagon. A-chan came in to the room and wanted me to make bigger one with different color.

I could have taken the picture of the hexagon, but then an idea hit me. These tricones could look like trees. Then I asked L-can what I should add, she said Sun. Then we made clouds, and added seagulls and a school bus.

(You know what I just realized? The first link above, have a comment section that people post their pictures of what they made. I think I might share our picture there as well.)

Tips on folding:
1. Sorry no tips this time. Sometimes the assembly went smoothly and sometimes didn't. I almost gave up on the 6th one. I just took a deep breath.

2. The one I made for A-chan with pink shaded papers turn out  really cute as well. It could be used as little toy dolls chair, maybe. Lots of possibilities.
