This is a simple origami flower made from paper. Kids can make this with their parents, too. It's great for gifts and party decorations.

Origami Garbage BinAnother neat way to recycle newspapers is to fold an origami garbage bin!

I have only managed to make one so far. Because I don't subscribe to the local newspaper, I made mine from an advertising poster. You can sometimes get free movie posters at the video rental place, they have them rolled up in a basket behind the counter here and are FREE for the asking!

VERY handy little useful origami. If you have a cold your tissues could be thrown there and the whole thing discarded to prevent more germs! In the kitchen it would be handy for peels if you can't compost them! In the craft room or in the CAR! The possibilities are endless!

When were were at a Chinese buffet, I noticed several Origami hearts clipped over a glass at the checkout counter. The little Chinese waitress handed one to me to see. It was so neat!

On one side, you can insert a coin (no idea why, other than as a weight if you use it as a bookmark?), the back side clips over a page, but it's so neat. I traded her $2 for 2 of the hearts. I've been trying to take a picture of it, but it keeps turning out blurry. Here are instructions on You Tube.

Long ago and far away (when I was in college), a guy that I was dating gave me an origami flower (it was 3D and had a 3D pyramid in the center - I think there were 4 or 6 3D petals). Does anyone know how to make this flower or other 3D origami flowers?

I think it might have been a traditional lily. Have a look at this website to see if you recognise it.

Here is a very simple pin cushion. Use the lidded box origami fold instructions and make at least one or the other, top or bottom of the box.. Use a felt scrap to fit down into the box, rolled and snuggly tucked in. You could place a piece of peel-n-stick magnet tape or glue in an old advertisement magnet into the lid.

I made only the bottom of the box (as pictured) from recycled kitchen cardboard that I doodled on the brown side of. Use whatever colors you have scrap of or choose colors to suit your mood! I hung a little craft punch lizard by the tail off the side of mine for fun!

I was going to give my brother money for his birthday, and decided to do something besides stick it in a card. Here are some web sites describing how to fold dollar bills into interesting forms. Since I have never done origami, it will be interesting to see how it will turn out!

This one has lots of different origami diagrams.
