DIY: Easy and cute origami cats

ORIGAMI-CATS

Today I want to tell you about a new film that is about to hit cinemas. It’s a beautiful Japanese inspired film for kids, with a beautiful story; Kubo & the Two Strings. Having visited Japan for the first time this year, I’m actually really inspired to see this movie, and explore more of their beautiful culture. Plus it’s got Charlize Theron, Matthew McConaughey and some guy from Game of Thrones {sorry, I don’t watch it, don’t hate me!}. It’s gonna be good.

To celebrate the release of the film, I’ve got a sweet little origami lesson for you. This one was great for both my girls. Lacey and I could fold together, and Lulu could decorate our creations.

STEP ONE: Get a fresh piece of origami paper ready. You can pick up some at your local craft shop, or even your closest bargain shop.

STEP TWO: Fold your square in half, to make one triangle.

STEP THREE: Gently fold your piece in half again, and put a small mark to show the halfway mark.

STEP FOUR: Fold the tip of the triangle down.

STEP FIVE: Using the halfway crease that you made earlier, fold the sides up from that middle point, as shown.

STEP SIX: Fold both sides up.
