Book Origami Mini Challenge

This is my first attempt at origami, so please take mercy on me and my folding skillz.

Origami box and lilyorigami box and lily

Box made first, using this tutorial, and the lily (in honour of our lovely host) made second, using this tutorial.

I couldn’t bear to hurt any of my books, even the ones I don’t like, so I used a couple pages from the phone book. And let me tell you, folding that flimsy paper is a lot harder than those origami tutorials will lead you to believe.

A big thanks to Word Lily for hosting this mini challenge and for helping to unleash my inner origami self.
