Day 299: I learned from an origami book how to make a pentagon shape by folding and cutting a square of paper, then I turned my pentagon into a snowflake.
Day 300!!!! So glad I made it this far!!! It seems as though there are hardly any days left of this yearly endeavor. I think it is going to zoom right by me, and I'll be done before I know it. Then what? Everyone keeps asking me if I'll keep going. I might keep making at least a project a week for a while. It seems as though recycled art is now a part of who I am. For day 300, I made another modular origami sphere, this time out of magazine paper. Each little flower piece that becomes part of the sphere starts out as a pentagon, which is why I taught myself the pentagon making technique yesterday. It is made from twelve little flowers all together.
Day 302: Another set of bows. I really like the black and white ones!
Day 303: And more bows!!! After all, tis the season...
Day 304: I made a bunch of rolled magazine circles for my art piece I've been working on (see day 287). I made about 10 little circles.
Day 305: I was hanging out at a friend's house and he had a Christmas origami book with instructions for a paper gift box. I made this funny little box out of a couple of Rolling Stone magazine pages. I liked the combination of the guy with the nerdy glasses on the lid with the text on the inside.
