Origami Leaf Cards

Ann Martin at All Things Paper stirred my interest a while ago when she posted this interesting project for origami-leaf-cards.

Now I tend to be a little 'origami-challenged' most the time, but these came together just fine.

Here's some of what I've made this weekend, with a variation to the original project design, shown on the Paper Zone blog here.

Oh Carole...I love these! I was in Paper Zone the other day and purchased some of the papers (double sided) that they recommend for this very project...been too busy to give it a try yet!

I love your new cards, inspired by Ann's blog. The colour schemes used have worked nicely and I love the diagonal touch to the card patterns.

These are wonderful!
Trust me, no one is more Origami challenged than I am! It once took me almost 3 hours to get one little paper swan to look as it was supposed to. :-)

These are SO pretty, Carole! I'm glad you were inspired to give them a try and thanks for the link to my site.

I used this technique to make tiny oriental fan's.
Lovely cards.

These cards are absolutely darling. What a coincidence, I also make cards in my "spare time from photography". My cards are totally different than these. Love these cards and think they are so creative! Jeanne
