Magical Origami

Happy Day my Ink Stained Friends!

Today I am thrilled to share a bit of origami with you all.  If you have visited before you know I like to dabble with origami from time to time and I wanted to share how perfect Rinea's foiled papers are for this fun paper art.

If you recall I mentioned a couple weeks ago that Rinea released a few new variety packs this month - Misfits, Patriotic and Magical...which is what I want to share with you today.

Aren't they adorable???  I am so excited at how they turned out.

I searched for a good pattern/video for Mickey for quite some time - 
there are lots of them out there but very few actually turn out looking like THE Mouse. 

I stumbled upon this video and gave it a try...

I am so happy I did, he turned out so cute and it was easy to switch a few things up to turn it into Minnie.

He was made using Ebony/Glossy Gold Foiled Paper and Ruby/Ruby Starstruck Foiled Paper from the Magical Foiled Paper Variety Pack and Silver/Glossy Gold Foiled Paper. His eyes, nose, mouth and buttons were all free hand cut (which is really easy). 

Minnie was made using the same instructions from the video above but I did change the dimensions a bit when folding to give her a slightly different look.  I also cut her features a bit differently from Mickie's.

You'll also notice that I gave Minnie her iconic red bow.  This is another tricky piece of origami which believe it or not I had more trouble with than the mouse!  I finally figured it out and I'm glad I did because it's the perfect finishing touch for her don't you think?

The video for this can be found here:

Have a magical day friends!!
