Project #47 Origami Numbers

Child's Room Decor Idea:  Origami Numbers by Kristen Sutcliffe from New House Project

I found the Origami Club website a few weeks ago when I was looking for Christmas ornament ideas.  When I came across the origami numbers, I had an idea to use them as wall art for a child's room.  The Origami Club website has really great diagrams and even animations.  It's a great resource.

What you'll need:

*origami paper (must be white on one side and colored on the other)
*double-sided tape
*1 sheet of white card stock
Step one:
Choose the colors of origami paper you want to use for your project.  You will need nine sheets plus a few extras for practicing.  I wanted my final product to fit in an 11 3/4" x  15 3/4" IKEA Ribba frame, so I had to use small origami paper (3 1/2" square).
Step two:
Arrange your sheets of origami paper on a table the way that you want them to be ordered in your final product.  Begin folding the numbers one by one.  The Origami Club website has great diagrams for folding Origami Club: Numbers
Step three:
Press the numbers under some heavy books for a few hours before proceeding.  Your numbers will be nice and flat and easier to work with.
Step four:
Use double-sided tape to secure the folded numbers onto a sheet of white card stock.  Make sure the final arrangement will fit nicely in the mat of the frame.
Step five:
Pop your origami artwork into the frame and you are finished!

Mine will be a birthday present for a one-year-old neighbor.
