Check out this new blog Peacefully Folding by Sisi, this week she has a tutorial on how to make this pretty origami sunflower card.
I just bought an ugly desk fan and prettied it up with a paper medallion made using my own Folding Trees teabag folding tutorial from last year and some pretty origami paper. It makes such a difference!
Today’s Folding Trees contributed tutorial comes to us all the way from Brazil! (If you would like to write for Folding Trees, see our Submissions page for details.)

We’ve all seen origami cranes before, but have you seen any this small? For reference, that’s a US dime these cranes are sitting on (18mm/0.7″ diameter)! More pics at the Rag & Bone blog. [Thanks to Nancy for the link!]
While waiting for my flight to board from Pearson Airport, Toronto, last week, I saw a series of display cases with what looked like origami inside! I went over to take a look, and saw a stunning series of models called ‘A Pressing Engagement’ (hehe) by the Origami Society of Toronto. I snapped a couple of pics so you could enjoy them too (there were many more display cases, but my flight was being called so I had to go!)

Thanks to the Origami Society of Toronto for making the wait for my flight so enjoyable!
