A set of two cute hair grips decorated with origami kawasaki roses and a centre of gems. The roses are made from a 5x5cm square of coloured origami paper with the gems attached in the centre and then carefully hand-folded into this traditional design of a rose. They are coated with water-proof spray varnish which hardens the paper and creates a sturdy product for everyday use.

Here’s the finished product! So this is my first Origami/Kirigami light switch plate.
The branches are pure origami where as the cherry blossoms are kirigami. You can get them to look like that origami style, but it involves starting with a pentagon and…it just wasn’t working. So I busted out the scissors! I’m surprised that they held up being Mod Podged.
I do wish that I hadn’t covered up the second branch so much; considering it’s the first time I’ve ever attempted something like this though, I’m not beating myself up to much.
Origami bows! The top two pictures have six kusudama parts placed above them. I will be posting a picture of the kusudama when I am finished.

- Fedrigoni are a well established, Italian paper company who have refined the art and science of making fine quality special papers. My challenge was to create a campaign which will ensure the entire UK design industry hears about the paper selection tool, consisting of 262 various paper samples which enables designers to choose the best shade and most suitable surface for their very next project.My final design was focused on quality Italian products and pride in appearance. Italian fashion houses supply the highest quality goods in the market, working with the finest materials, my aim was to capture this very same message for the Fedrigoni paper range. I chose to create dinner jackets because not only do they portray a strong image of quality, but just as importantly, classic, traditional design. I developed four templates, one for each element of the outfit, shirt, waistcoat, jacket and bow tie. Once each element is made they simply slot together, allowing you to make your own, and experiment with the different paper qualities and colour combination until you are happy with the outcome. Fedrigoni claim that their papers are ultra functional yet wonderfully expressive, this inspired me to produce a wide range of styles, from simple, subtle colours and patterns to much more elaborate combinations.
The book would be sent to Fedrigoni’s existing customers, of which a large majority are top fashion labels, promoting the new colour tool.
Jonathon Shackleton’s incredible handy work, I just love this quirky origami technique that has been used in a way to advertise. Lovely work!
QO had a birthday a couple weeks ago so I wet-folded her a box out of some awesome old construction paper in my room. I filled the box with puffy stars and topped it off with more roses, then tied it up with a curled ribbon and attached a bendy-straw shrimp for good measure.
It was adorable. C:
This is one of several of my upcoming Origami Crease pattern designs. This is an Origami crane crease pattern that I guided through my sewing machine to better demonstrate the crease pattern design.
I absolutely love the straight edges and symmetry of crease patterns and hope you will like my idea, too.
It is currently for sale in my ETSY shop: www.etsy.com/shop/freshedamami
