golden_lily: (Origami Lilies)
[personal profile] golden_lily
I decided to try branching out and using different papers and thicknesses. The small purple one is a made of a heavy washi chiyogami, cut to ~1.5 in by 1.5 in. The large brown one is a printed craft paper, cut to, say it with me, 3 in by 3 in.







This was an experiment in whether the washi chiyogami could be cut down. Answer? Not bloody easily. It's obviously not as tight or crisp as I would like, lending it to a rounder, softer appearance than most of my Sonobes. I like the color, though.





The craft paper has an impressive sheen and made beautiful folds. I'm quite partial to it. I think I'm going to add a tassel and some beads and give this one away as a Christmas present.

As with the last Sonobe, instructions are here. Variation for the craft paper sonobe is here.
