[ 6 picks ] the art of paper-folding

in high school, we all used to have the pretty, colorful paper. and we'd sit around and fold them into little stars or little cranes or little flowers or whatever. i was a crane-making master. there was something oddly satisfying about filling up a little jar or container full of origami.

lately, i've been seeing a lot of paper folding art/design pieces that i think are preeeetty cool (see illustration on bottom right of my last post). in lieu of that, i've picked six paper-folding awesomes for you to enjoy! so start enjoying!
