Fun! I'll have to do this with my youngest. She was asking the other day if she could make an origami bird (she is probably tired of origami flowers by now!).

Natalie, do you have any recommendations for origam: flowers, birds, and so on?

Natalie West Winningham said...

Oh yes, tons. Here are my favorites:

(The first lily fits beautifully inside the day lily and you can curl the petals of both flowers.)

Thank you! You won't believe this, but I just came across an image of a detailed Yoda origami. haha! I am going to see if I can find the instructional video on Youtube.
