This wonderful open cube with four connecting cranes is made up of 18 pieces of paper of three different units and makes a gorgeous kusudama. Some of the assembly is tricky and requires patience and/or paper clips, but Kathy will provide tips along the way. She will also supply cord and beads to finish off this pretty decoration.

Learn how to make a lotus shape offering for ancestors in the Chinese style. This easy, beautiful and peaceful shape brings us contentment through the folding process. It is not only for Buddhists but for all faiths. Toshiko learned this model from an art therapy student from Taiwan. Clever and lovely!

GIFT BOX AND JEWELRY TRAY

Gift Box and Jewelry Tray

Date and time
Oct. 12, 2008 at 2:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Teacher
Arlene Gorchov
This is a delightful Akiko Yamanashi Rose Box. It has a masu box for the bottom. The lid has a twist rose module and four leaves. The rose with leaves attach to the lid as an insert, so the lid can also be used without the insert to hold a picture or other decoration. Arlene will also teach an insert/divider by Emiko Suzuki. Perfect for a special occasion gift.

Here are two terrific boxes created by Jun Maekawa. Marcio will teach the Partitioned Box (X-Box), which has fun moves where the final “pop-up” creates the box. He will also teach a clever Gift Box from one square. Both these models appear in Maekawa’s book Genuine Origami. But I want to learn it from Marcio!
