Worktable Wednesday

We’re attending a Bar Mitzvah this weekend and I decided to make a card to mark the occasion. I did a bit of Googling until I found this awesome origami Star of David tutorial. I’d just follow the video – it can’t be too difficult, right?

I.was.so.wrong.

That 15 minute video turned into 45 minutes of pauses and rewinds. And there might have been some swearing.

I think that part of the problem was that my paper was too thick, but I was determined to use it anyway because it was pretty.

Thankfully, it only took two sheets of paper before I got it right. I think it turned out pretty well! I wanted to keep it for myself.

By the way, that card was in the press for several hours and it still wouldn’t get flatter than that. Yeah, my paper was way too thick.

So what do you think? I'd love to know!
