Cute origami houses

Projects that seem completely uninteresting when I'm in my right mind suddenly become irresistible when I ought to be working on something else. Folding tiny useless things out of paper is one of my favorite ways to procrastinate. If you have a chore you don't want to do, I recommend making little paper houses by following this diagram.

Looks like I'll be making these on a daily basis (since I have chores that I don't want to complete - daily.):).

These are very cute & my daughter would love to do this!

Jessie, my girls were just yesterday asking me if I had any origami books. A friend of mine just retired from teaching an gave us the motherload of origami paper, and we've been having fun getting creative with it. My favorite project so far has been making cupcake liners out of origami paper. I can't wait to show my girls this project for the little houses. Thank you!

Well said. Distractions I find throughout my work day that seem awesome, usually aren't so awesome anymore, once I get home and actually have the time to try them. Ha! Glad it's not just me :-)

Adorable - so cute n' tiny! These seem like a great intro-to origami. Way better than starting with something more complicated like a swan I'm thinking :)
