Origami mushrooms | How About Orange

Origami mushrooms

Small paper mushrooms have sprouted on my desk. Each is folded from a quarter sheet (a 75 mm square) of origami paper. I used a hole punch to cut out spots and attached them with a dot of glue. What am I going to do with these? No idea. But they're cute. Get folding instructions here at Origami Club.

So cute - I've been teaching some origami folding to my daughters 4th grade class - this one is adorable, and different than the traditional animals. Love it.

Those mushrooms made me smile and think of Super Mario Brothers. Perhaps a Nintendo enthusiast would like them?

Or, you could just keep them on your desk since they're wicked cute :)

Oh my goodness...I love these little origami mushrooms.

I can always count on your blog on inspiring me and educating me on some sort of craft.

That's why I nominated your blog to receive the Stylish blog award. I posted a little blurb about it on my blog today.

So go ahead Jessica and get your award, you deserve it!!!

Thank you for providing me with so much inspiration!!!

The mushrooms look fantastic. I've been doing some origami with my youth group kids, and I think they would love the mushrooms. Thanks for the post.

Huh, it looks like the page won't load now. This is an old post, so it's possible the instructions I linked to have been removed since then.

The Link changed. Here is a new one: http://de.origami-club.com/fruit/toadstool/toadstool/index.html

Jessica Jones said...

That's a similar one, but not quite the same. I just found the one I used and updated it in the post:
