However since sitting in that cafe last summer I have been on a bit of an origami paper folding quest. I keep meaning to sign up for one of her workshops but they seem to get booked up pretty quick. I would love to have the skills to make an Origami lampshade. Having done a bit of an internet search and dug out my Origami books I realised that a lampshade may not be the best place to start. I did however discover that you can make pretty strings of Origami fairy lights by using the traditional Origami waterbomb.
After several attempts at folding and inflating I finally got the hang of them.
I am really pleased with the end result. I brought some cheap battery operated LED lights and just poked each LED light into the top of each waterbomb. I had fun making them and I am still hoping at some point to make an Origami Lampshade.
