I've enjoyed a very productive week ... finally getting around to some serious 'spring' cleaning at home and finishing several projects which have been on the back-burner for far too long!
Out of the thousands of origami paper cranes we amassed during the Peace Crane Project in 2014, some 'returned' to Hiroshima; a few senbazuru are now calling Queensland Museum home (exhibition opening soon ... ) and with the remainder, this week I've made these brilliant keepsake box frames to showcase the residual cranes at home. The Peace Crane Project was profoundly meaningful to me and I am grateful I have this selection of cranes to remind me of the experience and all it taught me.
I've also finally finished a box frame of my collation of origami 'presents' and am very pleased with the result. I used beautiful French origami papers (the stunning patterns were designed by a collective of French artists).
I am thinking of making both concepts a feature in my Etsy shop (reopening later this month)!
